I fell in love with these products in India; Kama Ayurveda. First with their face and body sprays; the rose is good for antioxidants, the sandalwood for fine lines and the lavender for relaxation and then everything else! Their products are therapeutic and natural using aromatherapy and ayurvedic healing principles. They won best brand in India in 2016.
Here is there advice for a cleaner and greener holiday season:
With the festive season in full swing, thinking about the quality of air we breathe while we celebrate can raise a red flag.At Kama Ayurveda, while we are strong advocates of the party mood, we are also interested in finding a balance and reducing the consequences. Here are some small steps we are personally taking:
1. Purifying the air in your home with these easy-to-grow plants
2. Carpooling! The next time you accept a party invite, ask the host who else in your area may be invited. Make plans to go together.
3. As you get into your best festival garb and prepare to look your best, make conscious choices about the products you buy.
4.Light up your home with smoke free candles and diyas.
5. Say NO to firecrackers. Think about all the animals that suffer immensely for a few minutes of our enjoyment.
6. Recycle all your party material the morning after

Montreal’s designer Marie-Eve Emond of Betina Lou now has a studio shop in the Mile End/Little Italy area at 6510 Henri-Julien. Her beautifully curated space is bright and full of other local designers with function and form and quality in mind. Beautiful unique classics and basics that are very special in their simplicity.
She has one of my favorite jewelry designers YYY porcelain necklaces and more. Of course a plethora of her beautiful new Fall collection, art work and home decor and beauty products and more. Have a visit. I love the atelier boutique combo, I love the behind the scenes real connection to the creation of the items and people who make them. Seeing the wall of threads, patterns hanging, and industrial machines lining the perimeter with production happening and creative wheels spinning in the air… It is all very romantic!
Go visit but if you can’t visit they offer delivery on a cute vintage bicycle with a basket, very befitting of Betina Lou’s whole aesthetic!
Fall/Winter is coming which means all the designers Spring/Summer collections are on sale! Check out Montreal designer Jennifer Glasgow’s Spring/Summer sales… there are pieces you can transition easily into Fall with cozy cardigans or sweet blazers.
