Green Your Lifestyle 

Give Your Mom a Piece of Mother Nature this Mother’s Day

Posted on November 21, 2012 by Bee Glorious | 1 comment


What I love about spring is that it is a season to revere everything maternal. Mother Nature reawakens, the earth gets a day of joyous celebration and mothers from all over the world are given well-deserved tributes. 
Treat your eco-mom to the great outdoors! There’s nothing more glorious than mother nature’s beauty and nothing more relaxing than reveling in it. Take her for a nature hike through the woods. Play a guessing game – have fun identifying the trees and wild flowers you come across. Inhale the heady scent of the flowers and thank Mother Nature for her bounty.

No woods near your home? Never mind. Take your mother for a picnic. Celebrate spring by drinking in the beauty of the green grass and the blue sky while letting the breeze run its fingers through your hair. Use only natural, eco-friendly products, like picnic mats made from sedge grass which are durable as well as flexible. Please your mom as well as Mother Nature by using banana leaf hats to protect yourselves from the sun.

If there’s a beach nearby, have a fun time with your mom at the beach, swimming and sunbathing, and celebrating the glorious revival of Mother Earth in springtime. Realize how much we are all Mother Nature’s children, and how much we have to give back to her.

Green isn’t just a movement anymore - it’s a way of life. Think about using environmentally friendly products in your day-to-day life. Throw out those plastic, vinyl and rexine products. Bags, jewelry and other natural products made from bamboo, coconut shells, etc., not only let you breathe easy, but cause less pollution too.

Convince your mom about the importance of giving your energy-guzzling computers, televisions, tablets and laptops a day off while you are out celebrating Mother’s Day. Thinking about reducing your carbon footprint, even if only for a day, will make both of you feel good.

Volunteer to decorate your house with household items that scream au naturel! Be more environment-friendly by letting in natural air, using wooden furniture and fixtures and decorating the rooms with indoor plants. 

Finally, pamper her with nature’s formula for skin and hair care. Products made from natural and organic ingredients have a way of keeping skin refreshingly smooth and making hair vibrantly fragrant.

There’s no limit to what you can do with your mom to celebrate a green Mother’s Day this year. Be creative with your plans but most important of all, be earth-friendly!

5 Reasons to Go for Natural Cosmetics

Posted on November 21, 2012 by Bee Glorious | 0 comments

 Switching from using regular to natural cosmetics has a visible effect on the skin. People who are prone to breakouts, allergies, and rashes can often eliminate those conditions by using organic products that are ideal for sensitive skins. Besides, allergies are usually triggered by the application of harsh, unnatural substances. However, this situation is just the tip of the iceberg.

1.       Artificial beauty products pose high health risks. According to breastcancerfund.org, synthetic makeup is directly linked to breast cancer, infertility, birth defects on infants and other health-related problems. The accumulation of too many toxins in the blood stream can adversely affect the kidneys, liver, and brain, as well as the adrenal and thyroid glands.

2.       Be beautiful inside and out. Switch from using synthetic to natural cosmetic products. Cosmetics made from organic ingredients do not contain artificial ingredients that will harm your inner body. They do not contain unnatural dyes or artificial color enriching properties and most of the ingredients used are plant-based. So you can rest assured the products are safe to use.

3.       Organic beauty products have healing and nutrition properties. For example, a natural hair shampoo derived from fruits, leaves and roots makes hair look fabulous while providing nutrients that nourish the scalp, which helps to prevent the development of dandruff and other scalp-related problems.

4.       It is advised that only organic products be used for the face. These include cleansers, moisturizers, toners and creams. But, of course, you wish to keep the skin of the rest of your body as healthy as that of your face, right? So opt for lotions, soaps, oils, and sun blockers that contain ingredients that are also organic-based.

5.       Use of natural cosmetics promotes eco-friendly living. Since natural cosmetics are made from natural ingredients, pollution of the environment by synthetic substances is eliminated. By using organic body essentials we are individually contributing to living according to higher ethical values within the larger community, which is fast becoming an integral part of the advocacy towards greener and healthier living. By using natural cosmetics we are living in harmony with nature and can continue enjoying the incredible benefits of doing so many years to come.
