Meow Meow Tweet has been busy creating 3 NEW SOAPS and changing their packaging to PCW (post-consumer waste) paper. Coconut Cacao Body Soap combines cocoa butter & coconut milk. It is super gentle and safe for babies and sensitive skin. Rosemary Avocado Shampoo Bar is filled with natural oils for moisturizing and energizing all hair types. It's great for kids and dogs too! A shampoo bar instead of plastic bottle = less waste, making this an easy choice. Juniper Green Clay Facial Soap works well for all skin types with lemon, juniper, basil, sea kelp and French Green Clay. You can expect this product to clean, detoxify and tone, leaving beautiful results. Winter is an important time to exfoliate and Meow Meow Tweet's NEW Rose Cacao Sugar Scrub does just that with fair trade sugar, cocoa butter, and organic roses. Its scent is all natural, and all-at-once romantic, decadent and delicious. Use it once weekly to stimulate circulation and rid pores of toxins and dirt, or soak with a tablespoon in the bath for an escape from holiday stress. You'll notice rose as a key ingredient in some of our new items. Rose is often trending in beauty products, with good reason. Rose oil tones the skin, strengthens hair roots, can help heal wounds, and has a calming effect on the nervous system. Read more about its benefits here.
In our last blog we spotlighted Briogeo Haircare
, a recent addition to the store. We connected with founder, Nancy Twine, for a few words on the brand. She sums up why the line has developed so many fans. "Briogeo is like skincare for your hair. All Briogeo products contain a NOVA Complex of Natural Oils, Vitamins, and Antioxidants (ingredients typically found in a strong hair care regimen) that provide the foundation for healthier, stronger hair with each use. All Briogeo products are 6-FREE, meaning no Briogeo product contains any sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, DEA, or synthetic dye."
Next, check out Farmaesthetics Rose Perfecting Polish.
It's a weekly, at home exfoliating treatment that performs as a safe alternative to microdermabrasion. Farmaesthetics
sources their ingredients from American family farms for 100% natural, certified organic "Sustainable Beauty"
. You'll be very pleased with the effects on your complexion.

Last but not least, we present Indie Lee COQ10 Toner. Indie Lee's line is 100% natural, inspired by her personal quest for wellness. COQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that can withstand and reverse skin damage, preserving the collagen and elastin within your skin cells. It's worth paying attention to, and Indie Lee's CoQ10 Toner pairs COQ10 nicely with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid for a deeply moisturizing effect.
Mindful Eating For Better Skin
Winter holidays like Christmas and New Year's are often the most anticipated, but also some of the most hectic times of year. A sudden influx of commitments, parties and visitors can cause stress effects in our bodies and on our skin. While we offer a shop full of carefully curated products that can do wonders for your skin from the outside, total wellness is multi-faceted and must be looked after from the inside as well. Mindfulness is a powerful defense against stress
. When you are mindful you are aware and experiencing the present without judging or expecting from it. You savor every bite and sip and hug and conversation, and receive its good energy. You maintain calm. You are in the flow
and your surroundings fuel you. If this sounds like a lot of fluff to you, consider the results of this Harvard Medical School study.
While under stress it's easy to get away from good habits and fall into a pattern of excess in food, caffeine and alcohol consumption. To practice mindful eating, simply be conscious of what you put on your plate and into your body. As you are socializing over the next few months, do a daily assessment and ask yourself the following questions: Am I eating for nutrition or emotion? Is the food I'm consuming organic and clean? Am I well-hydrated? Try to drink a gallon of filtered water a day, more if you work outdoors or do very physical work. When stress starts to get to you, give yourself a few minutes to breathe deeply before taking any other action. By choosing this response, your body can avoid a flood of stress chemicals and withdrawal of vital nutrients and circulation from the skin. This kind of positive self-control will lead to improved health, inside and out.
