by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 12, 2020

Since we’re heading into the summer months, I wanted to write about something that’s very close to my heart: healthy sun protection! Yes, we do sell a natural sunscreen (which you can buy here!), but there are more ways to help yourself achieve that irresistible sunkissed look without sacrificing your skin’s health...

Ollie's Cookbook: A Nutritious Doggy Dinner!

Ollie's Cookbook: A Nutritious Doggy Dinner!

by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 11, 2020

Today’s post is going to focus on something very near and dear to my heart: feeding my King Charles Cavelier, Oliver a healthy diet. When we rescued Ollie, he was loved, but not in the greatest shape health-wise. His mouth, especially, was in poor shape. After a lot of vet visits and some serious dental work, Oliver was left with only a few teeth remaining.

As such, we couldn’t feed him any sort of hard, dry kibble. And honestly? I wouldn’t want to. So with that in mind, I decided to look at the healthiest way I could feed my little fur baby...

QUIZ: How Is Your Energetic Ecosystem?

by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 10, 2020

As a way to send-off our chakra series, I thought it would be a bit of fun to end on a functional note.

Chakra Series Part 7: Sahaswara

by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 09, 2020

The Sahaswara, or Crown Chakra as it’s also known, is our source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to everything we can experience in this world. This chakra connects us to our higher selves, to every soul on the planet, as well as the divine energy responsible for creating our beautiful universe.

The lotus flower symbolizes the Sahaswara: this beautiful flower emerges from muddy waters. Both literally and metaphorically the idea of emerging from muddy water represents the cycles of...

Chakra Series Part 6: Ajna or Third-Eye Chakra

Chakra Series Part 6: Ajna

by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 07, 2020

As the penultimate chakra, Ajna represents our ‘Third-Eye’. Found in the space between the eyebrows, this chakra includes the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower areas of the brain. This invisible energy source is potent, and makes up the foundation of your intuition.

Translated as “beyond wisdom,” Ajna opens up the pathways to deeper inner knowledge, and will often guide you whether you’re aware it’s happening or not! An open third-eye chakra may enable...

Chakra Series Part 5: Vishuddha

Chakra Series Part 5: Vishuddha

by Natalie Novak-Bauss June 06, 2020

As a spiritual chakra, it may be more difficult to determine the misalignment of the throat chakra. Physical symptoms of a blocked throat chakra may manifest as a sore throat, thyroid issues, neck and shoulder pain, difficulty hearing, jaw tension/pain, or TMJ. Mental blockages may come in the form of difficulty understanding and expressing your wants, needs, and desires.

If you’re feeling as though the dreams you’ve created for yourself are visualized but constantly eluding your reality, it is likely that your throat chakra is...
