WHAT IS BLACK GOLD?

First hearing the term “black gold” made me so curious. I imagined so many definitions and topics of what is black gold. Is it a new drink, an oil, a type of jewelry, a song or a movie? It inspired me to dig deep and uncover what exactly is black gold. Well I guess it depends who you ask. I asked some friends and they all have their own ideas of what is black gold. I think for me the best answer is it’s the result of successful composting. I wrote about this in an article awhile back that you can read here. I’ve always planned on researching more about this because I do find it interesting.

If you want to watch a film about composting read below!

HOW TO INDOOR GARDEN-a growth experience

It’s always fun to learn something new! So I recently started researching how to indoor garden. My interest sparked from the last couple months of staying home and wanting more greenery inside my home. There are other important reasons for example, apartment living or extreme seasonal weather. I chose to grow a mini fruit and veggie garden from Urban Leaf which came with great directions for getting started and how to have a healthy indoor garden. I actually have both an outdoor and indoor garden so I can’t wait to see what I enjoy better. My outdoor garden which you can read more about here, is doing fabulous! We have grown many different sized tomatoes, zucchini and basil. I love going out to harvest and support the farm to table concept on a mini scale.

WHAT IS ACTION AGAINST HUNGER-help save lives

I first heard of this charitable organization called Action Against Hunger while doing research for an article on Moon Balance. Moon Balance is a superfood powder mix sold in the US by YourSuper.com and distributed around the world. I was so emotionally moved that YourSuper donates a life-saving food bar to hungry children around the world for every mix sold through the website. To clarify that’s a 1:1 ratio. So I placed an order of my own to support the cause and started to recommend it to everybody. In the process, I decided I wanted to help and also learn more about what is Action Against Hunger.

INGREDIENTS IN HAND SANITIZER-are they safe?

It’s the topic of conversation lately and I’ve tried many of them. But are they safe?  We can answer that question when we know what ingredients in hand sanitizer.  Hand sanitizer was first introduced in 1966 in medical settings such as hospitals and healthcare offices.  And then popularized in the early 1990’s.  According to Pharmacy Today, 91% of children 0-5 yrs have been exposed by drinking or inhaling the product by mistake.  This is due to the appealing scent like apple, vanilla or citrus.  And children 6-12 yrs had consumed the product intentionally.  These products should always be used with caution and under the supervison of an adult.

WHAT IS ASHWAGANDHA FOR?

I’m so intrigued by this word Ashwagandha that I decided to do some research on it.  Pronounced ash-wa-gand-ha. It’s considered the King of Ayurvedic Herbs.  Withania somnifera is the official name of this plant that is also known as Indian ginseng or winter cherry. It’s a small evergreen shrub plant in the Solanacease or nightshade family. It’s grown in India, parts of Africa and the Middle East. The root is used to make the substance that is crushed into a powder that makes up the medicinal properties.  The berry doesn’t taste very good but is used to propagate for future planting.
