Ginger + Hibiscus Watermelon Pops

Are you feeling hot and sluggish from all these long hot summer days? During the dog days of summer, we like to indulge in herbal popsicles. Making your own popsicles provides instant refreshment, while also fortifying you with a little plant power. When researching other plant-powered popsicles, we consulted Half Baked Harvest’s Hibiscus and Minty Watermelon Popsicle recipe, making a few medicinal twists of our own by adding in our Organic Ginger Tea and Hibiscus Tea.

Women's Health Month

May is Women's Health Month and a great time to take stock of our check-ups and health goals. That however, doesn't mean stretching ourselves thinner than we already are. We should rather look at self-care as investing in ourselves and our future. Many times women are the primary caregivers for children, disabled relatives, and aging parents. Between work and caring for our family, our own well-being is all too often put on hold. That however, is in contradiction to what we need.
