This is a very informative article written by a gynocologist on the dangers of phthalates. Heard the buzz around phthalates, but not sure what they are? Phthalates are plasticizing chemicals that are toxic. Some have been banned in the EU but not in the US. They are hard to detect on the label ingredients because they are often the ‘hidden’ ingredient in the fragrance (according to the FDA). To avoid these toxins make sure that the products clearly state the fragrance used is phthalate-free to protect you and your family. In our products we use essential oils and always phthalate-free fragrances.Read More
Our multi-tasking Lavender Soothe & Repair balm uses a traditional Greek apothecary recipe (known as kerilifi) to help with skin issues, aging skin, and scars and is even gentle to use for the entire family. It is a waterless, highly concentrated formula loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and omega fatty acids. A little goes a long way. It is beneficial for all skin types.

The traditional keralifi is made with local olive oil, beeswax, and st. john’s wort oil. Keralifi (balm) is a staple in the Greek homes and seriously magic in a jar. There is a reason it works!Read More
I never really had acne throughout my teenage years but when I got in my late 20’s and early 30’s, it hit me. The dermatologist put me on topical steroid treatments which caused dry skin, were expensive, and frankly I didn’t like putting all those chemicals on my face – it just didn’t seem right! I decided to take the natural approach and guess what, it worked! I want to share what helped me and if you are struggling with cystic acne or any type of acne really, I hope this helps you too!Read More
I was very excited when I found out I was going to be interviewed by Windy City Greek. Why? Because that is where our story started! I was a small town American girl living in the big city of Chicago when I met my now Greek husband (who was only visiting the city). After whisking me away to live in Europe, he planned a trip back to Chicago to propose at the famous Bean where we had our first date. So, yes, Chicago has a very special place place in our heart! Thanks to Alexia Amvrazi and Windy City Greek for capturing our story!Read More
