Happy Spring!

 In Blog, Katharine's Journal

Spring is here at last!  As we eagerly anticipate the ground thawing and crocuses popping up, now is the perfect time to set some intentions for the season of rebirth and fresh starts. Here are some of our suggestions for honoring the season, with some inspiration from The Spirit Almanac, by Emma Loewe and Lindsay Kellner.

Bring the outdoors in.  Even before the first blooms appear, get into the spirit by purchasing fresh flowers from your local farmers market.

Connect to the earth and the season by planting seeds indoors.

Spring Cleaning. As you clean your home for Spring, think about a deep cleanse for your face.  Rid yourself of toxins and dead skin with our exfoliating Antioxidant Mask.  Follow with our Kahina Double Cleanse using our Oil Cleanser and Facial Cleanser. Then spritz with our Toning Mist to balance Ph and exfoliate additionally with salicylic acid in Aspen Bark Extract.

Purge beauty cabinets and drawers of unwanted and expired product.  Make sure to recycle or donate unused items where possible. Extend your spring cleaning to relationships and behaviors that no longer serve you.  We recommend burning some Palo Santo incense to create a ritual out of the process.

After a season of hearty, rich meals, it is a good time cleanse the body, too.  Eliminate unwanted sugar and refined foods from your diet.  Make your own meals from whole foods, including plenty of greens to shake off the heaviness of winter.

Capitalize on the extra energy and longer hours of sunlight and bring renewed passion and creativity to your work, home or projects.

Take a cleansing bath with our Moroccan Beldi Soap to wash away impurities and prepare for Spring’s more skin baring clothing.  Use our exfoliating Kessa Mitt to stimulate lymphatic drainage for internal dexotication, while removing dead skin to reveal smooth glowing skin beneath.

Update your skincare routine with botanical ingredients.  Rose is perhaps the most heralded bloom of the season.  Use our Moroccan Rose Water to refresh, awaken, cleanse and tone skin as you breathe in the essence of the season.
