Work it Out!
Women today are bombarded with countless images telling us what beauty is. The message we are fed is that by nipping, tucking, lifting, extending, etcetera, we just might get a little bit closer to this ideal. So how do we counter balance this toxic message pervading the minds of beautiful women everywhere? More importantly how do we instill healthy practices in Christian women who are called to an even higher standard of beauty– one that takes its root in the character. If you haven’t heard of the acronym “NEW START” it’s a mnemonic device coined by Weimar Institute to help people remember God’s 8 natural laws of health: – Nutrition – Exercise – Water – Sunshine – Temperance – Air – Rest – Trust in God Though having all of these elements is essential to total health (mental, physical, spiritual and emotional) the focus on this article is on Exercise and how it benefits us girls. So without further ado, here are four (4) ways exercise improves the health of females: 1) Good for Your Heart Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in Canada (1). Along with a shift to a plant based […]
Six (6) Ways to Get Great Skin Naturally!
Nowadays millions of people are spending hundreds of dollars on laser treatments, chemical peels, cosmetic surgeries and countless skincare products to reverse aging, overcome acne and cover-up blemishes. But getting great skin doesn’t have to be this expensive or arduous. Here are six (6) ways to get great skin naturally! 1. Water: For years we have been told that water is fundamental to having great skin, and this is true. It is a fact that our bodies comprise of over 75% water, providing hydration to our various organs, including the skin. In 2006, researchers from the International Society for Bioengineering and the Skin (ISBS), found an improvement in skin quality after adequate additional water intake. They found that by increasing the uptake of additional dietary natural mineral water, an improvement was seen in the skin’s softness, smoothness and skin-moisturizing effect (1). Amazing! Best-selling author, Ellen White said, “In health and in sickness, pure water is one of Heaven’s choicest blessings. It promotes health. It is the beverage, which God provided to quench the thirst of animals and man. Drank freely, it helps to supply the necessities of the system, and assists nature to resist disease.” (The Ministry of Healing, 305). Refreshing, isn’t it? […]
The Golden Path
In his book, Dune universe, Frank Herbert uses the term ‘The Golden Path’ to refer to character, Leto II Atreides’s strategy to prevent humanity’s ultimate destruction. The Golden Path is the main driving force in all of Herbert’s novels, however, what the golden path represents, remains a mystery to Herbert’s readers even to this day. As a believer of the Bible, the concept of the golden path is very intriguing. Herbert’s idea of the golden path being a solution to prevent humanity’s descruction, brings to my mind, the ‘plan of redemption’. We are no experts in the Bible, but the plan of redemption is a somewhat similar ‘concept’ to that of Atreides’s. It is a plan to redeem or save humanity from destruction; a mystery whose unveiling is still pending. The aim: to give humanity the opportunity of eternal life. Christian author, Ellen White describes this plan of redemption most poignantly in the book Patriarchs and Prophets. She writes, “The Son of God, heaven’s glorious Commander, was touched with pity for the fallen race. His heart was moved with infinite compassion as the woes of the lost world rose up before Him. But divine love had conceived a plan whereby man might […]
1-2-3 Steps to Naturally Clean Skin
The saying goes, “Beauty is pain” and quite frankly (depending on your perception of how beauty can be attained) this is true. Previous studies have found that various beauty products contain chemicals that have detrimental health effects associated with them. For example, researchers have found that phthalates, a key component in plastics, have also been found in several cosmetic and personal-care products, and has been associated with various reproductive defects and complications, etcetera. (1) Acquiring beauty nowadays can be somewhat toxic, depending on the types of products you use, but thankfully, there are natural alternatives that work VERY well, without the danger. In this blog, we would like to offer you a quick and easy, 3-step blitz on how to get squeaky clean skin. 1. Cleanse! Turmeric/Lemon Cleansing Facial Mask Turmeric is a wonderful rhizome root that belongs to the same family as the ginger root.

I love The Original Lifestyle’s products! I tried the Coconut Cream, Pineapple Coconut, and the Vanilla Orange body butters, and the Pineapple and Tropical Blends Lip Balm. I was pleasantly surprised at how the butters cleared up my skin and left it feeling smooth and moisturized. The balms were great too. I’ve used several good natural butters the past but I noticed that my skin responded very well to these products! Sarah is also very easy to work with and takes great care in making sure her customers are satisfied. I can’t wait to try some more scents and share with my co-workers! Thanks The Original Lifestyle!
My first impression about the Peppermint Lip Balm was that it smelled so good! I love the cooling after effect the peppermint has on my lips prior to application. It glides on effortlessly and is not overly oily or dry. A little goes a long way so constant reapplication is not necessary. This lip balm would hydrate my lips for up to four (4) hours, and I consider that to be a lot compared to previous non-natural lip balms I owned in the past. On the topic of non-natural lip balms, they often irritated and dried up my lips oppose to hydrating it. Sometimes they would become so dry, they’d crack up and form rashes (and that was not a pretty sight). Ever since I switched from non-natural to this 100% natural lip balm, my lips have been so moist and luscious than ever before! Thank you for your product! I look forward to ordering more!
It has truly been a remarkable experience using the original lifestyle body butter. I use the coconut cream flavor on my face, hair and body and the difference has truly been amazing. It leaves my face super soft especially as a base for my makeup. Using it as a sealant for my hair is so moisturizing; it works great with my cantu leave in conditioner alongside my flaxseed gel for a bomb braid/twist out. Guys, trust me- this butter is something to behold. Thank you Sarah Elizabeth for introducing this gem into my life. Oh, and the scent…so Awesome!!!! Please do yourself a favor and get one or two or three of this body butter!! Xoxo
I was so encouraged when I found this service. I have recently started making some positive changes in my life, and finding these products was such a blessing. I love the way their products look and feel on my skin. My favourite is the creme brulee whipped body butter. I had lots of blackheads, and I saw a marked change with my complexion while using these products! I just can’t stop talking about these products. I have shared it with my friends and family members and even bought them as Christmas presents last year! I anticipate what new and exciting things will pop up next, from the Original Lifestyle. Can’t wait for more!
