Botanical Beauty by Avaka Draka
The law of attraction teaches us that we are vibrational creatures in a vibrational universe. We attract to us, things that vibrate on a a similar frequency. The higher the vibration the cleaner, the brighter, the better. The lower the vibration the duller, the denser, the deader. If we are what we eat, and we eat at McDonnell’s; then using chemically laden beauty products on the largest organ in our bodies. Is akin to supper sizing those fries for lunch daily.
We all want to feel good and look good, to shimmer with delight, and draw wonderful things into our lives. Yes, we are how we slather, soak, and scrub. But how do we honer ourselves self without having to spend $40 on face cream? My solution, use all natural, botanically based, multi-propose products, and get creative.

Dr. Woods Pure Black Soap is the perfect all in one cleanser. All natural and bio-degradable it’s gentle enough to use on your face, and has ingredients that improve the tone and texture of your skin. It can also be used as a spot treatment for acne, on your hair as a shampoo, and even for your laundry in a pinch. The Shea Vision line with additional shea butter is ultra moisturizing and silky, without being slimy or filmy. It’s also my personal favorite.

Pangea Organics. I had a friend who worked for Panga when they were sill a local Bolder Colorado business. Her pitch was, never put anything on your body that you wouldn’t put in your body. Even though they now use gentle preservatives so that their products can be shelved, and found in stores across the country. I still attest that their Japanese Matcha Tea Facial Mask is good enough to eat. This clay and sea vegetable based face mask, re-mineralizes, hydrates, oxygenates, and exfoliates your skin. Watered down it can be used as a scrub/cleanser combo, and you can find it for under $40… just.
