Spring Awakening

As we move into glorious springtime here in the PNW, we witness the trees refresh themselves from a barren state, having shed the old and taken rest. We begin to think of all the ways we could cleanse and streamline our own lives, from our bodies to our closets to our routines and the ways that we treat ourselves. Spring is nature's natural New Year, and a time when we humans are naturally inspired to action as a renewed sense of energy begins to permeate all that we do, waking our minds and bodies from the lull of winter

At 2BWell, we celebrate this time of rejuvenation and growth. We hope that your winter has provided plenty of time for valuable rest and reflection, and as we move into longer, warmer days, we are honored to wake with you, supporting your transition to the new season.

Detox Your Body:

We are delighted to be able to provide you with a number of services that may support your internal cleansing efforts. From nutritional consultations to working with a naturopath to heal the gut, to finding the right kind of breath work to clear the mind and body of old patterns and transform your energy, we are confident that we can help you cleanse your body, mind and spirit this spring.

Detox Your Beauty:

Is this the year you wanted to green your beauty routine? As you use up your bottles of more conventional products and begin to replace them with more natural, holistically healthy options, consider simplifying your life with products made with fewer, cleaner ingredients such as shea butter, almond oil and coconut oil -- some of which you might already have around the house!

Creating your own non-toxic personal care products can be simple and fun, as well as inexpensive! The following body oil comes together in no time, and is a wonderful, pampering treat post-shower or bath:

  • 3 oz. almond, avocado, sesame, jojoba or olive oil (or mix a few together to get multiple benefits!)
  • 15-20 drops of any essential oils of your choice, such as lavender, ylang ylang, frankincense or neroli -- mix and match to suit your preferences
  • Shake it up to mix the ingredients and apply to wet skin to seal in moisture

In addition to this, we are pleased to bring you our beautiful line of skincare products, made from ingredients such as aloe vera, witch hazel and essential oils, all of which are blended expertly to make your skin glow!

Detox Your Home:

Our external environments are extensions of our internal states; as we cleanse our bodies, we may feel the need to purge not only the items we no longer need or use from our homes, but also the substances with which we clean them. While many conventional home cleaning products are full of toxic ingredients, there are plenty of simple (and inexpensive!) ways to keep your house sparkling and smelling fresh.

Much like self-care products, it can be simple to whip up your own cleaning products for the house using things you have in the pantry. Lemons, vinegar or baking soda work great, or try the following recipe to make your house sparkle, shine and smell fresh:

  • In an opaque spray bottle, combine 16 oz. hydrogen peroxide, ½ tsp. lavender essential oil, ½ tsp. lemon essential oil and ⅛ tsp. peppermint oil.
  • Shake to combine ingredients. Spray surfaces around the house and leave for several minutes before wiping clean

You may also try feng shui to bring good energy your way, or have a Naked Lady party with your friends to get rid of things that you don't use anymore. Cleaning house always feels good, especially this time of year!

However you choose to cleanse your life this spring, we hope you'll let us be a part of your process. Thanks for being a part of our 2BWell community!
