Embracing an Organic Lifestyle

Pesticides, chemicals, toxins, food dyes and bleaches - let's get real. We don't need them, they make us sick, and there are alternatives! Because we know exposure to toxins can change DNA, making a conscious decision to be informed, and research all aspects of your lives, and your children's lives, can literally safeguard your genetic lineage. Before you have a completely normal existential crisis about this, this is really about making positive decisions on a daily basis and they could be as simple as choosing products, food, garments and brands that you trust, are transparent, ethical and are honestly putting humans ahead of profit.

The Temple of Light: A New Beginning

Nestled within the serenity of nature stands a round temple filled with light. Its windows accept the bounty from the sun, while its doors welcome people from all walks of life. This recurring dream that graced Swami Radha since childhood started to come to fruition in 1963 among the towering trees and crystalline waters of Kootenay Bay in British Columbia, Canada.

Clocking Orange: Creativity and Energy

Clocking Orange: Creativity and Energy

When it comes to orange, we've observed two types of people: the person that naturally buys and displays orange abundantly, and the person who envies that person. There’s no question, it’s daring and effortless and speaks to self-confidence. We spend our lives around colour at MILOU MILOU, and in the first our colour psychology series we look at how incorporating the colour orange into your home can impact your mood, mind, and even your eating habits. MEANING  Colour psychology tells us orange is an energetic and stimulating colour, one which people tend to associate with words like uplifting, rejuvenating, happy, warm, and fresh. We...
