Product of the month of March!

egyptian-magic

This little pot of balm is AMAZING! Egyptian Magic has been around for a while, but I only just got round to buying a pot last month.

Eco-Bathrooms – Eliza’s

I asked my friend and yoga teacher Eliza what natural, organic beauty products she was using and  could recommend. Being passionate about using more natural products myself I wanted to know what others were using and why. I think there is still a stigma attached to ‘natural’ products that they don’t work as well or smell odd, but in fact very often this is simply not the case!

Here’s what she said…
