• Alternative to anti-wrinkle patches / tape, and even botox!

    When I reached almost 42 I started to notice more wrinkles on my face. Of course, the wrinkles were there even before 42, but I did not look so close in the mirror! :-)
    I decided to look for natural ways to slow-down and even sometimes reverse the signs of 'aging'. I came across Tonya Zavasta, who promotes a raw food diet and she looks AMAZING for her age, or really any age, so I purchased her e-book: Guide to an Ageless Face: The Smartest Skin Training. She had all kinds of great suggestions. I especially like Chapter 10: Know Your Cosmetics! She warns her readers how cosmetic companies get away with adding in synthetic ingredients under natural sounding names. In general, her book is useful, except I took issue with one of her suggestions - using synthetic tape on your face.

    Why I recommend against using plastic or first aid tape as an anti-wrinkle solution.
    The only suggestion that I found in her book that did not seem so 'natural' was applying first aid tape to the face. She said when she first used the tape it caused "redness" and that was a BIG red flag for me, since it meant that her skin reacted. I wondered why would her skin react, so I went searching for the answer. The problems seems to clearly be the isooctyl acrylate which is a synthetic chemical found in almost all medical/first aid tapes and bandages. "the presence of one of the most common acrylates (isooctyl acrylate) used in 3M's adhesive bandages and tapes was discovered by accessing online US patent records" http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/572962_4

    Here are the toxicity warnings listed on the USA National Institute of Health website: isooctyl acrylate
    "Inhalation Symptoms: Cough.
    Skin Symptoms: Redness.
    Eye Symptoms: Redness.
    Ingestion Symptoms: Vomiting. Aspiration hazard!
    Ecological Information: ICSC Environmental Data
    The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment."

    Since medical science has proven that our skin is permeable, what we put on our skin can and often is absorbed and thus will end up in our blood stream, which is why I think it is wise that we consider things we put on our skin similar to something we would eat.

    Thinly sliced fresh cucumbers work as a great substitute for tapes with toxic chemicals.

    Does cucumber work as an anti-wrinkle remedy?
    "In 2013, a study published in “Fitoterapia,” a journal dedicated to medicinal plant research, took a closer look at the bioactive compounds that make cucumber juice beneficial for skin care. The report identifies a variety of compounds that make cucumber juice “nourishing” for the skin. The authors conclude that these elements lend cucumber juice a skin-soothing effect that eases irritation, reduces swelling and even alleviates sunburns. Cucumber also offers antioxidants, which combat skin-damaging free radicals." http://www.livestrong.com/article/179024-what-are-the-benefits-of-using-cucumber-juice-on-facial-skin
    Cucumber will do the same ironing effect as anti-wrinkle patches or tape and also naturally hydrate your skin with all the goodies from the cucumber juice!
    I am confident that cucumbers are a safe and beneficial and better alternative to anti-wrinkle patches/tape and even botox.

  • CocoWhite oil pulling or DIY? Busting CocoWhite's Myths & Marketing Strategy

    Have you noticed the CocoWhite oil pulling buzz on the internet?

    Let us explain to you and expose how this buzz is created, and most importantly, we will show you a far more eco-friendly, low cost, non-toxic and super easy way to use a common glass jar of coconut oil for oil pulling.

    CocoWhite pil pulling or DIY eco peaceful

    BUSTING COCOWHITE's CLAIMS & MARKETING STRATEGY!

    1) Unstated affiliate promotions

    Most of the Cocowhite "reviews" that we saw were just BLATANT affiliate sales promotions, without the clearly explained notification (in the video, tweet, Instagram) that the person "ad populum [includes affiliates]– or has been paid by the company to tout the product" [< from FTC Guideline], which is actually illegal according to the FTC if they promote and sell to anyone in the United States!)

    We were surprised to see that even 'eco-conscious' YouTubers got influenced to "review" (promote/sell) CocoWhite which is: A) not organic, B) packaged in single-use throw-away plastic packaged, that's C) also about 10 times more expensive than a common store bought jar of coconut oil and D) requires additional shipping & packaging.

    2) "Coconut oil alone can be quite bitter"

    This is a claim made by CocoWhite and their sponsored video reviews. We have been using coconut oil for over 20 years and it has never tasted bitter, just sweet. If someone is using rancid/bad coconut oil then maybe it might be bitter, but you should not consume rancid oil, it contained damaged oils and it contra-health. This is actually a very good reason for choosing the DIY coconut oil jar vs buying a prepackaged product since you can taste and smell the oil especially if your going to add essential oils or other ingredients that can whiten your teeth. Since CocoWhite uses flavoring you may not be able to identify if/when their oil goes rancid/bad.

    3) "CocoWhite is in high demand!"

    As a consumer, have you thought about asking:
    A) How this "high demand" was created?
    B) Should we be asking for any proof or just take their word for it? and
    C) "High demand" compared to what?

    This is a claim that any company can make, whether it is true or not, and they do not have to provide any evidence to prove that demand is "high"!

    The celebrity endorsements (receiving financial compensation from CocoWhite: e.g. "I partnered with CocoWhite to create this video, for which I received financial compensation.") seems like an exchange for posts, tweets, videos... which is then a company manufactured "demand" and would therefore seem to explain the company claim of "CocoWhite is in high demand!"
    Telling consumers that their products are in "high demand" is a well known marketing strategy to get consumers to assume (not use critical thinking) that a product is popular solely from public demand. It can also make the consumer assume that the product must be good and work well since it is so popular (fallacy of ad populum as in 'If so many people are buying it actually must work').

    4) Spending more money increases habit formation

    One claim made in a video review by a CocoWhite affiliate/promoter "sometimes spending more money on things forces us into a habit, the more we spend, the more accountable, we feel, we want to get full value."
    First, if the external motivation of "spending more money" makes you "more accountable" then it may be time for you to re-evaluate your values and priorities in life! Behavioral science tell us that long term motivation and habits directed from inside motivation(s) are far more effective. and Secondly, same argument can be flipped 180 degree to say that the "spending more money" can actually prohibit people from buying and using!

    5) "it's easier" than other options

    'Easier than using a jar of coconut oil and needed measurement.' Are there any other easy (maybe easier) ways to have oil for oil pulling? See our DIY example below!

    One of the main selling points from Cocowhite affiliates/promoters is this idea that CocoWhite is an easier way to do oil pulling. Have you seen how long it takes to squeeze it out of the sachet (plastic tube)?

    It is 'easy' just to take some of the coconut oil and place in another container for your bathroom (or any room in your house or work place) and/or buy another/multiple jar(s) of coconut oil!

    Our Easy DIY (see bellow) does not require any measurements, plus no need to look for scissors to cut a CocoWhite sachet!

    6) Got Photoshopped images?

    While CocoWhiteUK claims in the text of this Instagram post that "NO FILTERS HAVE BEEN USED", filters are not the only way to 'enhance' photos!

    Note how the:
    A) skin tone gets lighter with each successive (below) image, and
    B) how the shine/refection on the lower lip is brightest in the last image, and
    C) the tips of the two front teeth lose the varied color edge!
    My experience is that this is not a one of, isolated case. I searched and noted numerous images on the internet with similar disparities (significant changes)!

    EASY (MAYBE EASIEST) DIY WAY TO USE COCONUT OIL:

    DIY oil pulling easy eco no toxic way eco peaceful

    1) Pour coconut oil into a glass glass bottle with a stainless steel pourer top (affiliate link) and place in your bathroom or a convenient place where you will remember to use it.
    The melting point of coconut oil is 76 degrees F (24 C), bellow this temperature use other oils (for example sesame oil) or other liquid oils. You can also mix coconut with another oil that has a lower melting point to lower the melting point of the coconut oil.
    2) Optional - Add flavoring or essential oil* other ingredients into the bottle. Shake well.
    3) Pour about 1 tsp - 1 Tbsp of coconut oil into your mouth. Not every mouth is the same size, for some 1-2 tsp. is enough. You do not need to have an exact measurement. After few times you will be able easily identify your preferred amount and how much oil you need to dispense from your pourer.
    4) Swirl for 5-15 min.
    5) Spit out** or ingest
    6) Smile because you just saved about $2.50, and at the same time made a cleaner environment and possibly a healthier you!

    *Flavoring or essential oil ONLY that is deemed safe for internal use!!! As with many extracts quantity and dilution are factors that need to be considered.
    **We have seen no valid evidence that proves that the swished oil needs to be spit out instead of swallowed. The claim that it is now "filled with bacteria" seems odd considering all the swallowing (with and without drinking and chewing) goes on during a day. Do not spit down a drain since it can clog sewer drains and is not good for septic tanks.

    BENEFITS OF GLASS JAR OF ORGANIC COCONUT OIL VS COCOWHITE:

    1) Less plastic pollution - better for our environment, better for us and better for the animals!
    2) Glass jar - more eco-friendly vs throw-away, single-use packaged CocoWhite
    3) Eliminates the possibility of toxic chemicals from plastic (especially soft plastics which usually have phalates added to make the plastic soft) that will enter into your body after being absorbed by the coconut oil and possibly more so if the flavoring contains essential oils, which are normally purposefully stored in glass containers due to the fact that they can 'melt' through plastic (especially citrus oils). Oil tends to interact more with the plastic, than other substances, which can lead to more toxic chemicals being released from the plastic into the oil. This is the reason you will find all quality essential oils in glass containers. Glass is an inert product that does not react with any oils.
    Got BPA? We see no mention of "BPA Free" on the plastic sachet or the box. Even if it did you may not be aware the INDEPENDENT (as in not paid or influenced by the manufacturer) studies show that BPA free often contains BPA and several other other TOXIC ingredients! See our video why I not longer use BPA free containers 
    4) Organic coconut oil - clean product for us, clean environment for workers and animals.
    5) Save money, a lot of money!
    DIY vs CocoWhite $4.38 vs $38.51
       Coconut oil (Organic) in glass jar $12 = 32 Tbsp or not Organic at $8!!!
       CocoWhite (not Organic) in throw-away, single-use plastic sachets £19.99 GBP + £5 shipping about $40, 14 sachets = 14 Tbst
       1 sachet (1 Tbsp) of CocoWhite $2.85
       1 Tbsp DIY $0.375 + few cents for a few drops of lemon or mint essential oils.

    IS OIL PULLING PROVEN BY HIGH LEVEL SCIENCE OR JUST ANECDOTAL TESTIMONIAL?

    We found no high level medical science to prove the claims made by oil pulling advocates, but we found many anecdotal testimonials (Link to an excellent video if you are unfamiliar with the term anecdote: The problem with anecdotes)!

    STUDY: Improvement about equal, but
    A) only two options (sesame oil vs chlorhexidine) were studied, and
    B) it involved a small population sampling

    "A study was conducted by Asokan S et al (2009) to evaluate the effect of oil pulling with sesame oil on plaque-induced gingivitis, and to compare its efficacy with chlorhexidine mouthwash.[19] A total of 20 age-matched adolescent boys with plaque-induced gingivitis were selected for this study. They were divided randomly into the study or oil pulling group (Group I) and the control or chlorhexidine group (Group II) with 10 subjects in each group. Plaque index and modified gingival index scores were recorded for the 20 subjects and baseline plaque samples were also collected. There was a statistically significant reduction of the pre- and post-values of the plaque and modified gingival index scores in both the study and control groups (p < 0.001 in both). The oil pulling therapy showed a reduction in the plaque index, modified gingival scores, and total colony count of aerobic microorganisms in the plaque of adolescents with plaque-induced gingivitis." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3131773

     

  • Creamy Strawberry Vanilla Vegan Ice Cream

    My son's favorite homemade ice cream recipe is Vegan Strawberry Vanilla Ice cream.
    Easy - Super easy to make with a high powered blender. It is so easy that I never have to measure the ingredients, so it is hard to mess up this recipe.
    Blender - This recipe was made in the Dynablend blender (Glass & plastic-free container). Note: Different size blenders might require you to adjust quantities to be able to blend thick substances.
    Ratio - You do not have to stick with my ratio. If you like it sweeter, add more dates, if you like it creamier add more cashews.
    Vanilla - Can be added to taste as much as you like. I have vanilla powder and I shake very generously as I like vanilla.
    Lecithin - in this recipe is optional, but if you can find GMO-free Soy Lecithin I think it is beneficial and it creates a more creamy and almost dairy-like taste. Another option is sunflower lecithin, but I only see it sold online.

  • Features of our 100% Organic Nut Milk Bag

    Our Organic Nut Milk Bags are the only Organic Nut Milk Bag that is truly 100% COMPLETELY ORGANIC - including the sewing threads and drawstring!

    BUYER BEWARE: Several other nut milk bag producers/seller claim that their bags are 100% natural or organic, BUT we have found that their bags are in fact sewn with polyester threads!

    Our video gives FULL details along with actual Textile Burn Test of threads: 
    FAKE Organic Nut Milk Bags (not even 100% natural) on Amazon. Burn Test (feat. Hemp Nut Milk Bags) 

    WE MADE OUR ORGANIC NUT MILK BAGS, TRULY 100% NATURAL, SO YOU CAN AVOID:
        - Endocrine disruptors (alters your body’s endocrine system)
        - Glues and other toxic chemicals 
        - GMOs (93% of US cotton are grown from Genetically Modified Organism seeds)

    OUR TOP 6 NUT MILK BAG - DID YOU KNOWS?

    1.) Got Birth Defect & Cancer Bag?

    Nylon and polyester are synthetic, meaning that are made from petrochemicals, which are carcinogenic and toxic - from drilling > to manufacturing[1] > to disposing.
    The negative effects are systemic
    - most petrochemical plants have major chemical leaks into the ground
    - petrochemical plants pollute the: air, soil and water[2], 
    - people who live next to oil refineries have an 85% higher risk of birth defect[3], as well as higher numbers of cancer* and other diseases!
    *Nylon fiber exposure almost doubled women’s risk of breast cancer[4], according to a 2010 study in the British Medical Journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

    2.) Got Estrogenic Activity?

    BPA-free labeled plastics/synthetics still are leaching estrogenic activity chemicals. Mother Jones magazine published an excellent article that describes testing, whereby Tritan "BPA-Free" plastics (which is used in VITAMIX, BLENDTEC, NINJA and other "BPA-free" blenders) leaches estrogenic compounds. In fact, the main ingredient, TPP (triphenyl phosphate), is even MORE estrogenic than BPA[5].

    3.) Got Synthetic (nylon, polyester) Threads?

    Organic Nut milk bag sellers that claim they are made from 100% organic cotton or hemp are NOT truly 100% organic or hemp! - The “100%” claims are only referring to the fabric, not the sewing threads or drawstring! Most (all, according to our research of nut milk bags sold around the world) of the "organic" and "hemp" nut milk bags are sewn with polyester threads. Of course they do not willingly advertise this important detail!
    Polyester threads are fraying (falling apart) and can easily get into your nut milk and other food products. Our human body has no problems eating fraying organic cotton or hemp fibers, but we are horrified to think that petrochemical synthetic/plastic fiber can get into our food, especially with all the toxic outgassing, leaching of plastic/synthetic materials, even the BPA-free plastics have EA (estrogenic activity).

    4.) Got Paint Strainer?

    Be aware that some nut milk bag sellers sell relabeled nylon paint strainer as a nut milk bag.
    Almost all the synthetic (nylon, polyester) nut milk bags (that are sold for as much as $10) are made from the same material as the paint strainers you can buy at any home repair/hardware (Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace Hardware...) and paint stores for less than $1!!!!!

    5.) Got Glue?

    The conventional fabric production uses glue in the fabric manufacturing process. Glue is also used on 'natural fabrics'. 
    Instead of glues, organic fabric manufacturers use corn or potato starch.
    In addition, most sewing businesses use some type of glue to secure the garment seams (ends of threads) during the garment sewing process. Of course, we DO NOT use glue in our sewing/manufacturing.

    6) Got Global Warming & Plastic Pollution?

    Nylon manufacturing creates nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. It is a greenhouse gas with 300 times[6] more global warming impact potential than carbon dioxide.
    Both Nylon and Polyester DO NOT biodegrade, which creates an ever increasing amount of plastic pollution. An example of this ever-growing plastic pollution is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is as huge as the United States state of Texas! The toxic plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is not just on the surface, it is slowly breaking apart into smaller pieces that are sinking, and is harming and killing, birds and marine animals 24/7 and working its way back into people's seafood meals.

    ALLERGY NOTICE

    Organic cotton production often requires the use of corn starch or potato starch. The starch is mostly removed after just one thorough washing.

    HOW DO WE MAKE ECO PEACEFUL ORGAIC NUT MILK BAGS?

    Cotton bag threads: Our organic cotton bags are sewn with 4 thread overlock stitch, using 100% organic cotton threads.
    Securing threads: The most common practice in the industry is to secure overlock stitch with a glue (seam sealant). We DO NOT use any glues, instead we secure overlock stitches by hand.
    Fabric: Our organic nut milk bags are made from very strong organic cotton USA grown fabric and tested for nut milk and juice straining.
    Drawstring: Our bags are purposefully designed with a thin drawstring to fit on almost any cabinet hinge or hinge screw. Thin and strong drawstring allows it to dry fast and you can simply hang on the almost any cabinet hinge or hinge screw and let it strain by itself until you're ready to squeeze out all the rest moisture.

    WHERE IT IS MADE?

    Made in USA (Grown-to-Sewn)

    WHO IS ECO PEACEFUL?

    The Eco Peaceful 100% organic nut milk bag design and materials are sourced by Lena Mumma. I am an Eco-conscious and vegan mother, who gave up trying to find a nut milk bag to fit our food safety and Eco Peaceful standards.

    WHICH ORGANIC NUT MILK BAG TO CHOOSE - ORGANIC COTTON OR HEMP?

    Customer often ask, “What is the difference between your organic cotton and hemp nut milk bags?” here is the link http://ecopeaceful.com/products/frequently-asked-questions/faq-products/q-what-is-the-difference-between-your-organic-cotton-and-hemp-nut-milk-bags

    ORGANIC NUT MILK BAG USE/CARE INSTRUCTION - WASHING

    Before First Use:

    1.) Hand wash the bag with organic soap*. Rinse well.
    2.) Sanitize by boiling in water for 15 minutes.
    3.) Dry in well ventilated area. (see "NUT MILK BAG CARE - DRYING" in next section below)

    Suggestion
    : Keep seams outside for easier straining, cleaning and faster drying.

    *Not laundry or dishwashing detergent

    After Each Use:

    Washing: Thoroughly wash your nut milk bag and then dry.
    Sterilizing: This is the safest option (especially if you use your bag for sprouting).
    Sterilize by: 1.) boiling* or 2.) soak in pure vinegar** or 3.) saline solution** (water and salt - enough salt that it reaches saturation). Rinse well by hand and air dry (ideally in direct sunlight)
    *10-15 min. Note: Your bag may discolor over time from boiling, this is normal.
    **a few hours

    Full care instructions found on this pagehttp://EcoPeaceful.com/strainer-care 

    ORGANIC NUT MILK BAG CARE - DRYING

    Having your nut milk bag dry out quickly is important. Drying is usually quick if it takes 1-2 hours, which is common if you live in a dry climate. Direct sunlight speeds up drying time. Make sure that your bag is completely dry before storage. Our organic cotton nut milk bag dries outside in just one hour. Do not use the same washing machine or clothes dryer that you use for your cloths. We recommend against these since they are not known for being completely clean and certainly not clean or safe enough for food items.
    We did a side-by-side comparison of our organic nut milk bag vs a nylon nut milk bag (aka nylon paint strainer). They both dried within one hour in temperature 60 F (partially cloudy), 50% humidity.
    Note: We do not recommend hanging the polyester or nylon nut milk bags in the sun since the plastic will degrade quickly from the UV (UltraViolet) rays.
