Using Tantra To Reconnect With Your Partner Postpartum

When I told my Mommy & Me class my husband and I started a nightly tantra practice to help us reconnect and get through a rough postpartum period, a muffled chuckle and many uncomfortable side eye glances abounded. I’m pretty sure their first thought was – tantra/tantric sex – which is often people’s first thought when they hear tantra. But tantra, a Sanskrit word literally meaning “to loom, weave, wrap,” isn’t about sex, but rather slowing down and tuning into the self, similar to meditation. I first learned about tantra from my acupuncturist, Physician of Eastern Medicine and founder of Apothecai, Rose…

Interview: Jewel Zimmer On CBD, Cannabis, Hemp Oil & Why You May Want To Try It

It’s hard to deny CBD (and cannabis overall) is having a moment. A huge moment. As in, it’s everywhere. Wellness junkies are creating CBD health snacks and cocktails. Beauty brands are using it in skincare products to heal acne and rosacea. And pet owners now soothe separation anxiety riddled furry loved ones with CBD. The long list of healing benefits attributed to the cannabis plant keeps getting longer, and local governments are heeding the medical literature, many moving towards legalization, if they haven’t made cannabis entirely legal already. But as society opens up to the once marginalized plant and answers the questions…

goop x CB2 Launches Lifestyle Home Line

It’s hard to deny how much I love all things goop. The sophisticated wellness content, and beautifully curated online store just get me and my southern California ways. So, when I heard that goop was partnering with CB2 to launch limited edition home furnishings, I was ecstatic! Each item feels like a piece out of the Royal Tenenbaum movie with a feminine twist. There’s whimsy in the  dinnerware collection patterns and luxe feminine fabrics, like the pink velvet sofa. It’s hard not to covet everything. I’m crushing hard on each piece. To announce the launch, the brand sent me their mediation pillow set…

Ursa Major Launches A Shampoo – And It’s GOOD

I have a new favorite green shampoo, and if you know me (and my eternal hunt for the perfect green shampoo), this is big news. The Vermont based minimal green skincare brand, Ursa Major, just added shampoo and condition to their tightly curated selection of products and after one use (I literally just got out of the shower and ran to my computer to log down this review) I am smitten. For the longest time, I used their all-in-one face/body wash as a scalp rinse but now don’t need to because this shampoo is everything I’ve dreamed the brand would create. Read…
