Description: Organic Shikakai [“Shee-kah-kye”] powder comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia Concinna, and is widely used in India for soft shiny hair. Organic lemon juice, used traditionally in the west, rinses and tightens hair shafts for excellent manageability. Organic coconut, olive and hemp fatty acids moisturize for luxuriant hair.
This stuff truly is magical! So pure and so nourishing, it is one of the best hair products I’ve ever bought. I have long hair that gets easily tangled amidst my active lifestyle and workouts. This rinse makes everything better–no more tangles–soft nourished hair with a lovely fresh and citrusy scent. Dr. Bronner’s suggests diluting it because it is very rich–but I just use a little in the palm of my hand and it is just enough. Remember to apply starting at the ends of your hair to avoid getting your roots too oily. For extra moisturizing, use this in combination with a conditioner (Aubrey Organics makes my favorite conditioners).

To kickstart this blog, I will examine a product on each post, explaining it’s ingredients, why they are beneficial and desirable, and why it is worth every last penny. Each product I dissect I have used and loved. Here we go!
Description: This luxurious body lotion instantly restores your skin’s natural moisture balance. High in essential fatty-acids, linoleic acids, vitamin E and other nutrients, this ultra rich formula is perfect for dry skin. It also has a pleasant, light scent by way of natural fragrance.

This lotion does not contain the laundry list of chemicals and additives that most drug store lotions contain–just natural and nourishing ingredients, and a little goes a long way!

Originally from Jupiter, Florida, I am a fitness & nutrition enthusiast and recent college graduate majoring in Sport & Fitness Management. I’m a former Rutgers Volleyball player and now an avid runner. As an athlete, I’ve always had a burning desire to reach my maximum potential physically. This drove me to learn about the most beneficial things to put into my body. Along the way, I’ve discovered that what you put onto your body (cleansers, shampoos, soaps, conditioners, etc) also impacts overall health. Once I became more aware of what I put into my body, there was no turning back. A lot of habits were immediately out the window because I could not knowingly keep doing that damage to my body (i.e. drinking sodas, eating lots of empty calories with no nutritional value, consuming all kinds of preservatives in packaged foods). This was the spark that started this mission I’m on: to run on organic fuel. Along the way, I enjoy helping others learn what I have, which will ultimately help us all to become healthier individuals.I love and enjoy all things organic, health conscious, and blissful! Run On Organic!
