    Seaweed can be so soothing to skin because it’s bursting with essentials including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.  I use seaweed whenever I get skin stress.  It’s lovely floating in a bath but many of us don’t have tubs or simply don’t feel like cleaning our tubs.  You can use our Seaweed to the Rescue by making a paste.  Or try our

    Valentine’s Day is a great winter break.  Many of us have given up wine, chocolate, carbs, etc. after holiday binging.  That makes Valentine Day a mini vacation.

    It’s also great for small, indie businesses.  The first few months of the new year can be quite slow and a gift giving holiday is a sweet benefit.

    Friday, February 2, 2018 - 7:45am

    I first fell in love with seaweed while searching for a natural solution to my chronically itchy scalp.  I felt like I had tried everything including over the counter medicated shampoos, prescription shampoos and doctor visits.  I’m not a scientist so I don’t know exactly what it is about seaweed and healing but for me SEAWEED IS MAGICAL.

    I first heard about lip scrubs at downtown Boston markets.  These lovely ladies would come up requesting lip scrubs.  Being a practical Mainer I thought lip scrubs sounded a bit ridiculous.  I was wrong- lip scrubs are lovely.  Every once in awhile you just have to exfoliate- even in winter when you barely notice you have skin thru all your layers.  Exfoliating helps get rid of dry and dead skin and makes your

    The bra band should be parallel to the ground all the way around.

    If the bra you’re wearing is too big around, it will ride up in back and not be able to do it’s job of supporting you. This problem is also likely to then cause the bra straps to slide off your shoulders.
