Now, before these… Continue reading Unique & Unusual: Heir Island Cottage Yoga Retreat and Culinary Experience
So this infusion recipe I found on a FaceBook Ayurveda page has had 12 hours to sit and turn into a magic fat losing potion and I will begin taking it today for four days. I’m wondering if anyone else has tried this. I’m definitely not buying the “flat stomach” gimmick, but can’t be bad to… Continue reading Ayurvedic Water Detox Recipe
