While we prepare for the New Year, I thought I'd give you a peek at something that can be observed in dark, northerly skies (Norwegian, Swedish, or Alaskan) – the Northern Lights. They are also known as Aurora Borealis and were named in 1621 after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas (I knew you would be curious, so I figured I'd add this little tidbit of info).
What does any of this have to do with skin care? Zipola. I just thought you'd like a pretty picture to look at while I work on some new blog posts. Now, go relax with your family.

Lola and I are fooling around with a few ideas for our Coily Kinky Curly hair products. We really should have a Coily Kinky Curly logo, don't you think?
I suggested using the first letter of each word, but somehow, this reminds me of something I've seen before...
What do you think?
Stay tuned for the exciting adventures of the dazzling duo that dared to take on the scurge of the single strand knot and forge new paths into natural hair care.... whoosh!

I've been playing around with ideas for lotion bars and a couple of other 'solid' products for a while now, so when Lola posted a recipe for a bentonite butter bar (link below), I was immediately inspired to try a version with lavender.

With all those fabulous properties, you wouldn't think it could get any better – but it can. There is one honey that surpasses all the others in spades. In some respects, Manuka honey is a bit of a medical marvel.
