Meet My New Best Friend – The Pranamat Eco

In a non-beauty related review, lets talk back pain! There is a funny thing that happens once you hit your thirties and that is the very noticeable presence of aches and pains. I truly feel like I went from 29 to 80. With the addition of a slipped disk, chronic pain and fibromyalgia, my back is one area that gives me a ton of trouble. Simply sitting at my desk, standing for too long, and lifting anything over 20 pounds could potentially cause the onset of pain. When Pranamat Eco* reached out to see if I would like to try one of their massage mats, I was totally game!

Forager Botanicals Fragrances and Body Oils

Forager Botanicals’ line of all-natural beauty products and fragrances are all luxe with none of the nasties. When brand proprietor, Casey Coyle, found herself overwhelmed by the offensive scents of synthetic ingredients in mainstream perfume (while pregnant with her daughter) Forager Botanicals was thus born. Handcrafted in small batches in Brooklyn, NY, Forager Botanicals harnesses all the beauty and power of nature in their products. This divinely crafted line is a sure stand-out and a must know for the natural and non-toxic aficionado, or really any beauty lover. 

Many of todays mainstream fragrances and beauty products are scented with synthetic chemical compounds. There is little known about what effects these chemicals may have on your body. That’s why all of Forager Botanical perfumes are 100% natural. We use only natural, organic and wildcrafted essential oils in all of our products. Our beautifully crafted fragrances are designed to closely embody the scents that mother nature has bestowed on us. We use only the finest ingredients and oils to create fragrances that are completely natural yet truly luxurious.
