Kroeger Herbs
In 1978, Kroeger Herb Products was started in Boulder, Colorado, to fulfill a demand for balanced health products that work naturally with the body. Through the effectiveness of formulas, a reputation for having the finest products grew and so did the company. Standout products include the vitamin line, the complete concentrates and the herbal blends.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Clays have been used for centuries to beautify and refresh the skin. In fact, Cleopatra used clay from the Nile river and the Arabian desert over 1800 years ago as part of her beauty ritual. This powerful bentonite clay comes from Death Valley, California, where it is sun- dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees. Use it in conjunction with apple cider vinegar to pull toxins and poisons from the skiln for a fresh complexion for the New Year. Aztec Secret Healing Clay at Target.

Do-it-Yourself Natural Hair Repair
You can make your own natural hair product to create shine and volume for an updated look. Simply combine equal parts olive oil, avocado oil and coconut oil and a dab of scent (like lavender essential oil) and rub on the ends as a leave on conditioner. These common oils contain nutrients that help to repair hair damage and improve texture. Also, try rubbing a few drops into your hair as a make-it-yourself shine oil. Works great and is easy to make! Note: a little goes a long way

Himalaya Salt Dreams
Himalayan Crystal Salt originated from the Himalayan mountains about 500 Million years ago and the beautiful salt lamps are known for their healing benefits. Namely, they utilize  ionization to help neutralize common air pollutants like dust, animal fur, smog and electronic devices. Yes, the electronic devices that you depend on each day like your computer, television and microwave influence the air quality in a room because they give off charged ions.  Use a Himalaya Salt Dreams lamp to neutralize harmful ions and create a calming atmosphere for meditating, sleeping or visualizing a happy and prosperous 2013! wagnerdesign-en.de/home/himalaya-salt-dreams
