Taking a cue from Tracy Anderson, we love to add manuka honey to our water for hydration, a quick energy boost and to keep our skin healthy! Shop our KFactor 16 in 325g here.

Though Vitamin D is necessary for health, overexposure can lead to sunburn and premature skin aging. Take care of your skin by using organic and mineral sunscreens or covering up. You only need about 10 minutes of midday sun to get your daily dose of the vitamin so use that umbrella for the rest of your time outdoors!

Time to break out the flip flops and shorts! Created with our favorite ingredients to exfoliate dry skin, this clean concoction will leave you with soft, glowing skin that smells divine!  Shop our Fir honey 325g here.

After exfoliating, we make sure to slather on our favorite body lotion to lock in hydration. Our picks are always made with organic ingredients without any of the unnecessary toxic stuff!
