sEAMOSS - Sea moss is an Irish red seaweed that grows abundantly on the Atlantic shoreline of Ireland. A type of algae, it also goes by the name of Chondrus Crispus.

Being rich in sulfur, it has antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial functions, so is believed to help with balancing the skin microbiome. The high sulfur content also can decrease the excessive production of sebum (oil) in the skin.
Irish moss also contains 15 of the 18 essential elements that make up the human body. This includes, but is not limited to, calcium, sulfur, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin K—all ingredients that help reduce wrinkles, hydrate the skin, and protect from environmental elements.

hISTORY oF tURMERIC
Long before it was added to our lattes, turmeric was used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine (as a treatment for inflammatory conditions) and heralded for its use in cooking and beauty rituals around the world. Coming from the ginger family, this spice was used daily in India for at least 6000 years as a cooking spice, perfume, textile dye, for medicine and yes, for beauty! By 800 A.D., the trade of turmeric had spread across Asia, including China, and across the African continent. By the 18th century, turmeric spread to Jamaica and other tropical locations.
This multi-purpose spice was incorporated into all aspects of life, from cooking to ceremonies. In India, turmeric was used as a coloring agent and a culinary ingredient in India, used in not only curries, but in lentil and meat dishes, chutneys, relishes and soups.
It is also an ingredient in many vegetable dishes, like gobi sabji, or steamed cauliflower, and meat dishes, like turmeric chicken and rice. It can also be mixed with scrambled eggs. The yellow spice is also used in some varieties of garam masala, a spice mix that is almost as ubiquitous as curry in Indian cuisine.
Developing religious significance in India, spices like turmeric were burned as incense in ceremonies believed to send prayers and cleanse the air. And even to this day, Indian brides and grooms are ritually covered in a turmeric paste for a pre-ceremony glow. In some parts of Asia, people adorn themselves with a turmeric rhizome root as an amulet to ward away negative energy.
Arab traders first introduced this exotic spice to Europe during the 13th century. Marco Polo, trading along the great Silk Road, was so impressed by turmeric that he noted it down in his writings, famously mistaking it as a vegetable and comparing its bright color to saffron. The spice is now referred to as “Indian saffron” because of this incident, even though turmeric is actually a root.
Clearly, this well-travelled historic spice was used for all sorts of purposes. But what many don’t know is that it gains most of its healing powers from its concentration of curcumin, a super powerful antioxidant.
