Which Sweetener is the Healthiest?

The market is bursting with alternative sweeteners and sugar replacements. It can be hard to know which ones are truly good for us and what to use them for. So I've put together a quick check guide of our four most popular sweeteners so you can easily see whats what with regards to production, nutrition and use.

ZAO Make-up Matt Lipstick Review

I'ts extremely hard to find a natural, organic lipstick that looks and feels good. Many of them feel dry on the lips, while others bleed or smudge within minutes of application. Not ZAO! This eco-luxury brand has really nailed it when it comes to their lipsticks.

The Marvellous family needs your help!

We have to get our most loved product nutritionally analysed in order to keep it on sale, so we’ve decided to offer fantastic discounts and subscription deals to all of our customers, old and new.

New laws state that we have to display the nutritional content on all products. The cost of the analysis for our blend is around £5,000 and we simply don’t have that kind of money sitting in the bank. It has to be done by 2016 or we’ll have to stop selling our beloved blend!

ZAO Mineral Silk Powder Review

Did you know that around 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed by our body? I had no idea, but since learning that fact my long term love affair with Mac Cosmetics has really started to dwindle - every time I put my make-up on I just imagine it all sinking into my system!  So in a bid to save my body from nasties and the world from my naked face I'm going to start checking out and reviewing natural, organic make-up brands in the hope that over time I will have a completly natural make-up collection.

Organic Beetroot Powder

We've recently introduced organic beetroot powder to our range. This vibrant powder is proving extremely popular. It can be used to add extra nutrients, colour and sweetness to superfood smoothies but it is also fantastic for sugar free baking.

Worldwide Maca Shortage

We're sad to report that due to a worldwide shortage we don't currently have any maca for sale. The Peruvian plant has quickly become a firm favourite with many of our customers but in recent months the price of this potent Peruvian plant has gone sky high and we've struggled to source any powder at a price that we're willing to pay.

Coconut Oil Recipes

We've recently introduced coconut oil to our range of products and are all extremely excited about the endless ways it can improve our health, skin and the taste of our food. Coconut oil is popular with chefs around the globe because it can be heated to a far hotter heat than any other oil before it reaches burning point - this means

Another reason to go organic – it’s more nutritious

By Roxy Freeman

Following on from my last blog about the importance of nutrient dense food, I was interested to look into whether organic food is actually higher in nutrients than non-organic.

While many people agree that it’s better not to pile pesticides and chemicals into your body, there has been very little coverage of the health benefits with regards to nutrient density. That’s not to say the research hasn’t been done, it has, but for whatever reason it hasn’t been widely reported.

Marvellous Maca Sweets

Hello everyone. I have discovered a wonderful way to use Maca powder and coconut oil to create a truly yummy and healthful sweet!
MARVELLOUS MACA SWEET RECIPE
All you need is some Marvellous Maca Powder and Coconut Oil, some good honey, and some vanilla.
Just slowly melt about a quarter cup of coconut oil on a very gentle heat, then remove form heat and stir in enough maca powder to make a pasty sort of mixture, add up to a tablespoon or more of honey depending on how sweet you like it (could also be maple syrup). Then add about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Maca benefits for men and women.

Peruvian Maca Root is a root vegetable that has grown wild high in the Andes mountain ranges of Peru for thousands of years.
