I’ve been looking for an organic deodorant that jives with my body for some time now. I stumbled across this wonderful and easy recipe, and have been making it weekly. Small batches of about a tablespoon are best to prevent it from getting too dry. Plus, this is another way to use vintage tins or repurpose small containers.
Nut milk is a wonderful alternative to cow’s milk, goat’s milk, soy milk, or rice milk. You can use nearly any nut: almond, cashew, brazil nut, hazelnut, etc. Just soak, rinse, blend, and drain! For a detailed tutorial visit My New Roots.

Microgreens are a wonderful addition to any salad or sandwich. They add a nice crunch, rich flavour, and are full of vitamins. That’s three reasons to love them!
I typically buy microgreens at my local organic grocer. But,I was inspired by Livia Sweets post to try growing my own, and to plant them in vintage tins! Not only do I love, and have too many, tins, but I also love having ways of using them!
I especially love practical ways of re-using them that brighten up my space, and produce delicious treats.
One of the perks of being a student (read: passionate learner) is the joy of indulging in office supplies. Indulging in office supplies? yes. I love to add little colourful pops of joy into my work (and pleasure). I have spotted stickies in my Reiki books to demarcate key concepts, and colour coded flags in my chakra books to help locate the colours faster. And, of course, my growing home library is colour coded so that I can find things faster.
These cute bookplates from Orange you Lucky! Are a cute addition to any book, or library. And are a nice way to ensure you’ll get your books back. If you choose to use them, make sure to thank Orange you Lucky! for their work.
Observe without judgement. Look and see what is there. Inquire. Just observe.
These are a few of the key phrases in the mode of inquiry used by my teacher, Ojelanki, during satsang. Satsang is a non-dualist tradition of inquiry which allows you to question your true nature. What satsang leads you to uncover is your connection with all being.
Just observe is a principle that focuses on using sensory perception to speak about experience. The “just” is a reminder not to judge, not to move beyond the observation.
Observation is more difficult than it sounds. How does one speak about their nose at this moment? Or, what it is that you notice before you? We may say we are happy, but this is a word that denotes a series of feelings. What are they? sensations. colours. textures. temperatures.
Just observe. See what you notice. And, notice your transformation.
Little pleasures, like a fresh bowl of ice cream, are a nice way to unwind after a long summer day at work. Not only does making ice cream give you a way to focus on something fun, but it also–of course–results in a delicious treat.
This classic chocolate from David Lebovitz is my favourite. The result is rich and creamy, it lasts (if you can resist it) in the freezer without becoming over hard or developing too many ice crystals.
