REVIVE

FullSizeRender

The digestive system has been inching its way into the spotlight, as something people need to pay more attention to. There’s a good reason for that, your gut is deeply connected to many other parts of your body, including your brain, immune system and metabolism. If your digestion system is out of whack, there’s a good chance your whole system is going to suffer. We take our digestive health very seriously. That is why we created our REVIVE drinks. Not only do they revive your digestive system, but in turn revive your whole body.
 
Our Sweet Harvest is a sweet and smooth combination of fruits and vegetables; a mellow green drink that is packed with enzymes, vitamins and nutrients. All the ingredients in this drink were thoughtfully selected for their ability to help aid in digestion.
 
Cucumber can help control stomach acids, while fennel may help relieve intestinal aches. Green apples are known to reactivate good stomach bacteria, promoting optimal gut health. Parsley acts as a mild and natural diuretic, helping to relieve bloating. Pears are anti-inflammatory, helping to soothe the digestive tract. They are also an excellent source of pectin, a crucial soluble fiber, that is retained when juicing.
 
Our Bonfire Cider is a raw cider that is a complex blend of sweet and spicy that will be sure to tantalize the tastebuds, while boosting your immunity. 80% of your immune system is located in your gut, so digestive health and immunity go hand-in-hand.
 
The Bonfire Cider is loaded up with plenty of potent anti-inflammatory agents such as ginger, turmeric, cinnamon and cayenne. They don’t just act as powerful immunity booster, but they can help activate digestive juices, while soothing the stomach. Ginger is also known to be nature’s anti-nausea medicine, great for jet setters who are unfortunately prone to motion sickness. Apple cider vinegar is a probiotic, supplying your digestive system with good bacteria. It also aids in breaking down food properly, which can help cleanse and repair your digestive system.
 
Revive your drive, boost your immunity and give your digestive system a little love with on (or both!) of our delicious and powerful REVIVE drinks, Sweet Harvest and Bonfire Cider.

Deodorant Paste

unspecified-101

You’ve probably heard buzzing here and there about how chemical deodorants and antiperspirants are basically the devil. Dramatic, right? Wrong. Chemical-laden deodorants and antiperspirants are at the top of our ‘no-go’ list.
 
Our skin is our largest organ. It absorbs everything that we put on it. It’s bad enough to put chemicals, such as aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol and phthalates (all commonly found in your average deodorant), on a highly sensitive area such as your armpits. But then to make matters worse you clog up those pores and trap in all the chemicals.
 
Our bodies don’t do anything by accident. Everything has a purpose and function. We are meant to sweat. It is our body’s way of purging toxins. If we are preventing our body from naturally detoxing, where are those toxins going? We are sending them right back into the surrounding glands and the lymphatic system, and trapping them there.
 
We aren’t anti-deodorant here. We are very pro-smelling fresh and clean, but there is no need to do it with chemicals. Let mother nature help you out. We know it may be hard to transition from your current deodorant, but our 100% vegan, organic and all-natural Deodorant Paste is both powerful and effective (we swear!) It utilizes vegetable powder and coconut oil to absorb moisture and stop odor-causing bacteria in its tracks. Lavender, lemon and bergamot oils ensure long-lasting and legit freshness. Skeptics, get ready to believe.
 
The combination of baking soda, arrowroot and coconut oil creates a paste-like cream that is easy to apply, leaving no chalky white streaks on your clothing. Coconut oil is a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. Baking soda helps to neutralize odor, while arrowroot helps with moisture control and absorption. Lavender, lemon and bergamot oil also contain anti-bacterial properties and just happen to create an insanely refreshing blend that is both crisp and intoxicating.
 
Give our Deodorant Paste a try. No chemicals, no aluminum and no smelliness: this blend is safe, effective and will leave you feeling subtly clean-scented all day.
