These herbal hacks are all easy, cheap, and use simple ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen, or are easy to find here at Loose Leaf, or in the natural section of just about any grocery store.

How To Follow The Moon Phases To Actually Feel Happier

February 03, 2019 1 Comment

A few years ago, I was feeling disconnected from nature, and I wanted to get in touch with the world outside my own little bubble. For over a year, I created little private ceremonies during the full moon every month. I went outside to watch the sky and meditate, journal, or do an activity to help me get focused with something happening in my life. Following the lunar cycles helped me to get clear about my life and goals. And spending time outdoors under the moon had a soothing and awakening effect on my soul. I felt inspired, purposeful, and more connected to the mysterious forces of the world around me.

5 Ways Herbs Can Help With Your Money Woes

5 Ways Herbs Can Help With Your Money Woes

January 19, 2019

When trying to define what factors affect a person’s potential for wealth, money experts and people who have interviewed uber-successful people all agree that wealthy people have a completely different mindset than low and average earners. Some key elements of the wealth mindset include a lack of entitlement, and an abundance of curiosity, and grit. While a college degree can give you an edge when it comes to earning potential, it surprisingly has less influence than your attitude and belief systems. The subconscious mind drives our decisions, which determine how we actually live. Fortunately, we do have the power to build our self-esteem and self-confidence, reminding us that we are not powerless over our circumstances. This is where herbs can be helpful.

Your Body Is A Detox Machine

Your Body Is A Detox Machine

January 13, 2019

The topic of cleansing and detox is popular at the start of the New Year. But do we honestly need to follow an actual cleanse or detox regimen to get the toxins out of our bodies? Our bodies are naturally designed to be self-cleaning organisms. From the skin acting as a natural barrier for bacteria and other pathogens, to the kidneys and liver breaking down both foreign and domestic waste, the human body has everything it needs to keep itself cleansed all on its own. Unfortunately, most of us live in varying degrees of what you could call a toxic soup, a combo of air pollution, junk food, too much sugar and too little exercise, and let’s not forget about stress. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways we can take care of ourselves naturally, without spending hundreds of dollars on “natural” detox products that are often nothing more than harsh herbal laxatives. Here is what you need to know:

According To Astrology, Here Is The Best New Year Resolution For You

According To Astrology, Here Is The Best New Year Resolution For You

January 06, 2019

It’s a brand new year, the time we all collectively make plans to revamp, renew, and redo our lives for the better. Astrologically speaking, there is a reason for this: the sun is in the sign of Capricorn from the end of December through around the 20th of January. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, the celestial “police officer” who maintains law and order in our lives. Some of the astrological signs promote growth (Sagittarius), change (Gemini), and exploration (Aquarius), but not Saturn; this planet sets limits, restrictions, timers, and rules. Under Capricorn, we buckle down and do what we need to do. During much of the year, this feels like drudgery, but when January first rolls around, we can hardly wait to roll up our sleeves and get to work improving ourselves. So ride the “New Year, New You” wave while it’s high, because come January 20th, we move into Aquarian territory, and the energy changes completely. Carpe diem.
