FIVE FAVES OF THE WEEK

When is the last time you were looking forward to brushing your teeth? Ok, probably not something you think about too much, but change in my toothpaste actually makes me look forward to the "new" brushing experience. Neem has become my new favorite plant! Currently I use neem lip balm, conditioner and toothpaste.
It's been a bit difficult to find mints and gum without aspartame (why you shouldn't eat it?) in regular supermarkets, so I turned to my old friend Amazon.com and found Xyloburst that makes mints and gums sweetened with teeth-friendly xylitol and nothing else. 
I finally gave in and got more "professional" with my hot yoga practice by replacing my old Marimekko bath towel with an actual yoga towel from YogaRat.  Now I feel like I'm in with the cool peeps at the studio. Namaste.
I love this facial cleanser! I've been using coconut oil for a while now, but sometimes I need a change to my routine. I found 100% Pure cosmetics while searching the internet for toxin-free all natural products. Couldn't be happier with this one! Ingredients: Seaweeds (Kelp, Sea Lettuce, Spirulina),Green Tea, French Green Sea Clay, Saponified Coconut Oil, Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Sea Buckthorn Oil, Rosehip Oil, Extracts of Pomegranate, Grapefruit Seed and Rosemary, Lavender Essential Oil, Extracts of Cinnamon, Thyme, Goldenseal and Oregano.
And last, but not least: a new yoga mat from Aurorae. This is way thicker than my old mat from Gaiam. I haven't used this long enough to give it my final review, but I do love the pink color! :)
“Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu. May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”

    1. Haha! I remember when I was young and I would brush my teeth with pure salt because I read that it whitens them. It tasted disgusting though. This one actually tastes good, like sweet cinnamon. Not too strong. Another favorite of mine that I got from Finland during my last trip was Frantsilan Luonnon Hammastahna http://www.frantsila.com/product/luonnon-hammastahna/. Very good!
