Posted by Amy Beaith on

 For almost 2 years now I've been using a fluoride-free toothpaste I make with bentonite clay, purified water, baking soda, powdered mint leaves, finely ground sea salt, cinnamon, and clove.

The concept behind it is 'like attracts like'. i.e. Oil dissolves oil. Your skin produces natural oils called 'sebum' to protect itself from environmental factors which include: dryness, pollution as mentioned above, but also to keep ON healthy bacteria and yeasts and keep OUT unhealthy or unwanted bacteria and yeasts. When we strip that protective layer off your skin too often with soaps, it not only causes our body to produce more oil, but it makes your more vulnerable to colds/flu bugs and/or infections as well.

Welcome to PLANTiful!

Posted by Amy Beaith on

Photo credit: Brick & Bubble You may have come to know our company over the years as Ameya Studio. We recently changed our name that we hope will better reflect the work that we do. We wanted a name and logo that captures our desire to promote the power of plants in healing and nourishing the skin. Our products are FULL of plant-based ingredients, such as our own herbal-infused oils, wild herbs, locally grown oats, pure essential oils and more! We have always strived to include as many locally grown ingredients as possible and will continue to do so under our new name.

As part of our rebranding, we are expanding our skincare line to include some new items as well as new packaging under our new brand. These new items include: 

  • Sunscreen (we call it Sunscream!)

  • Whipped body butters - The first one available is called: Cocolicious!
  • Our castille olive oil soaps will be wrapped in plantable paper filled with Canadian wildflower seeds! How fun is that?! You can start your own garden project at home!
