    DIRECT SOURCING AND THE FAIR TRADE CONCEPT

    Direct sourcing and the fair trade concept

    There is often a lot of questions raised around fair trade practice. Where the fair trade money goes and who the people are that actually benefit when we purchase fair trade products?

    These are all relevant questions.

    In the beginning, we too asked the same questions, to be honest, with a little bit of a cynical leaning towards the fair trade concept. We found it hard to trust organisations and companies when we’d hear the bad stories of greenwashing or false claims of effective and meaningful impact just to try and market an ethical business model.

    Turmeric… the golden spice

    Turmeric… the golden spice

    Curcuma longa, more commonly known as Turmeric, has a long history of medicinal use, dating back thousands of years. In Southeast Asia, Turmeric is not only used as a spice but also as flavouring, dye and a component in religious ceremonies. Because of its amazing yellow colour, Turmeric is also known as “Indian saffron.” Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been using Turmeric, modern medicine has only recently begun to recognize its many unique health benefits, and to fully appreciate the extent of its healing potential.

    Healthy and Happy Skin

    A WORD FROM EMMA ON HEALTHY + HAPPY SKIN

    The skin is the largest organ of the body and takes on the huge role of filtering toxins and protecting your insides from the environment every day. Many people invest large amounts of money and time in trying to find the perfect topical fix, to correct blemishes, moisturise the skin, dry out oily skin, reduce redness, reduce breakouts and perfect their overall appearance. A great deal of time goes into morning regimes and then more effort at night to cleanse and remove the make up from the day.
