Do you find yourself feeling sluggish these days? Are you finding that your third cup of coffee is still not enough to cut through that brain fog? You might be in need of a good old fashioned detox!
Every day, our bodies consume trace amounts of toxins, whether we realize it or not. It’s only when the symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, and nausea present themselves that we finally catch on.
What is the difference between refined and unrefined oils?
Fats and oils go through a vigorous process in order to be pressed for public consumption and usage.
The process usually involves very high pressure and temperatures (over 200 degrees F).
This causes the oils to lose much of their beneficial properties and nutrients.
The higher the temperature in this process, the more oxidized, destroyed, or even toxic the oils become. These are refined oils.
Excipients play a very large role in the formulation of skin care. They are by definition substances that may emulsify, texturize, colorized and preserve a product. Excipients are typically synthesized materials that are made in a laboratory, and often are cheap by products in the processing of ingredients.
You may have thought that every ingredient that is in a skin care or hair product is always listed…..it is required by law right? No! There are some loopholes where excipients legitimately don’t need to be listed. The thing you need to be aware of is that some of the excipients you are trying to avoid may not be listed on the label because of their trace amounts.
Chemical excipients and fillers can hinder the efficacy, skin absorption and quality
Himalayan bath salt
Himalayan Salt is mined in the foothills of the Himalaya mountains. Ancient oceans deposited these salts 250 million years ago when the Himalaya Mountains were being formed. Because the salt beds were covered by lava, ice, and snow for millions of years, Himalayan salt is free of many modern-day pollutants.
Himalayan sea salt contains 84 minerals needed within the human body, thus making it much healthier than other types of salt.
Himalayan salt is often used as a bath preparation. Mineral baths of all kinds have been popular for hundreds of years, as they can provide soothing relief for several conditions.
Himalayan salt baths, may be beneficial in the following ways:

Below is a testimonial from the owner of Starflower, Cherylyn...
In early 2020 I came down with a powerful virus. I am not certain that it was the corona-virus but I knew it was enough to put my body into overdrive trying to fight it. I began taking large doses of Vitamin C along with Vira Defense. In 24 hours I knew I had overcome the worst of it and I was able to function normally, however, I still had to rid my body of the residual damage and fatigue it had left. It took two weeks for the virus to leave my lymph glands and for me and my lymph system to return to normal.
Here are the daily doses I took as soon as I knew I was feeling ill...
• Vira Defense -2 droppers every 3 hours for 24 hours
• Vitamin C- 8,000 mg per day
Zinc and Vitamin D3 are also know
