For The Love of Mangos

Hello there …If you've ever tasted a Mango, freshly plucked from a tree & warmed by the sun then you've also had a “Mango hallelujah moment”. I was young, moved to Homestead, Florida and wound up on an Avocado & Mango orchid (alongside a road made of crushed seashells). We named our dog Mango.Years later as I began to formulate plant based skin care I discovered there was actually an ingredient “Mango butter”, processed from the seed and abundant with essential fatty acids (our bodies don't produce essential fatty acids they have to come from our food or what we...

From Flowers to Face + August Special

As with my enduring love of flowers, we all have memories of times that leave an everlasting impact and alter our perceptions and awareness.  I still cherish a vivid memory of when I was first  “awestruck by flowers" that occurred when I jumped off my back step into my mother's flower garden and came face to face with a Sunflower.
