This is Why I MJF:

“ I think of the juice as delicious medicine for my body and soul.”

“I care about what I put into my body, and drinking MJF juice and booster shots enable me to get the nutrients I need, quickly and deliciously. Sometimes I will get a couple of juices to get me through the day until dinner, when I want to treat my body extra well and give my digestive system a rest. Other days I will get a Green Mama to drink in addition to my regular meals, because I know I will get a mega dose of the good stuff! And sometimes I get something sweet, like a Macaccino, just to sip on throughout the day.”

“I believe in good vibes, and I want to keep my vibration high and clean. When I drink this juice, I can taste the love that is the Montauk Juice Factory!”

“I believe in supporting local businesses and growing a wellness community in Montauk, and MJF fits right in.”

We are inspired by the amazing people who we meet everyday. We’ve discovered each of them has a unique and powerful reason they choose to invest in themselves and their health. We are stoked to share these stories because our mission is to not only deliver the most nutrient-dense, righteous juice on the planet but also to leave people and places better than we found them. This is why we MJF.

Embrace the Winter Vibes

“Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moment, embark on a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.” – John Boswell

 

Winter is a beautiful season: a time to retreat a little, focus on yourself and explore your depths. However, sometimes the bitterness of the cold and wind can leave you with less than warm feelings towards winter. That’s why you need to cultivate routines that are meaningful, nurturing and help you get the most out of these months of hibernation. Here are some of our favorite winter rituals that warm your body and soul:

 

Ginger Lemon Tea

Begin your morning with a warm cup of lemon and ginger tea, an ancient Ayurvedic tradition. It stimulates digestion, alkalizes your body, gives you a boost of energy and will help ward off cold and flus.Add some of our organic cold-pressed Good Good lemon and Ginger Ninja ginger boosters to your next order. Drop a half ounce of each into warm water and you have a delicious and immunity-boosting tea that will warm you up from the inside out.
 

Bentonite Clay and Facial Steams

Treat yourself to an at-home spa experience with one of our newest obsessions, Bentonite Clay. Bentonite Clay is a detoxifying clay that is very unique due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when mixed with liquid. The absorbent clay possesses a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins, heavy metals and impurities allowing it to absorb and extract them. You can literally feel your skin pulsate from the charges removing the toxins.
 

Kick off the pampering session by doing a relaxing facial steam. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils, like eucalyptus, lemongrass or tea tree, to hot (but not boiling) water to unwind and warm up after a long winter day. This will open up your pores, clear your sinuses and relieve any congestion you may have. Relax and breathe in the aromatic steam for about 15 minutes. Then apply your detoxifying mask made up of equal parts Bentonite Clay and water or apple cider vinegar. After 15-20 minutes, wash it off and then it is time for facial steam round two. You will be amazed by how smooth, soft and radiate your skin looks and feels afterwards.
 

If you really want to soak up the winter vibes, draw a bath and make an evening of it. Light a candle and put on some of your favorite mellow music. Dry brush for 5-10 minutes prior to open up your pores and exfoliate away any rough or dry skin. You can add 1/4 cup of the Bentonite Clay plus a few drops of essential oil to a warm tub to detox and soften your entire body. Dip into this relaxing and rejuvenating bath… and let the worries and the cares of the chilly day melt away.
 

Give Yourself a Little GLOW (Cleanse)
