Skin Care for You & the Earth

I've recently fallen in love with an amazingly natural & vibrant skin care product: Living Libations by Ron & Nadine, a super star couple living & creating their fine products in Canada. When I was teaching at Raw Spirit in Sedona, AZ. last month I was excited to find high quality products for face, lips & even pits at the Living Libations vendor booth (after literally strolling the entire grounds looking for the best stuff). My favorites: Poetic Pits (yes, for your arm pits!), Mocha Lover Lips, & my big fav: Seabuckthorn - Best Skin Ever face toner/moisturizer. All of their products are hand-crafted, using the finest ingredients nature has to offer & made under the lush canopy of forests. You can totally feel the difference - it's not just the label that will make your eyes smile, your skin will shine immediately.
