Fashion Ecstasy got a chance to preview some of the products that will be available at the event. The products are all-natural, non-GMO, and many are vegan and gluten-free.
There were some healthy snacks that we got to try.
Three Farmers’ Crunchy Little Lentils Sea Salt & Vinegar was very crunchy and satisfying. It has 12 grams of plant-based protein/50g serving. It’s got so many other benefits too, like being gluten-free, high in fiber, low in fat and a great source of energy.
Skuta Pumpkin Seeds are double-slow dry roasted. They were delicious. They are high in fiber, low carb, paleo, and keto-friendly. They are also a great source of omegas and magnesium.
Peruvian Harvest Cravings Yacon Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs are made from raw criollo cacao bathed in sweet Yacon chocolate. It is a productive and yet guilt-free chocolate treat. It satisfies one’s chocolate craving.
Acropolis Organics Kalamata Pitted Olives are tasty and naturally cured (so no dyes and no preservatives).
For cooking, there was Acropolis Organics Mousto Balsamic Vinegar, which is made from Romeiki grapes. It is full of antioxidants and is naturally sweetened with petimezi (a natural grape molasses).
Acropolis Organics Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from koroneiki olives using bioharvest agriculture. It is produced without pesticides and without additives.
To make life a lot sweeter (naturally), there were some healthy options. Liva Raw Date Sugar is made from organic dehydrated ground raw Deglet Noor dates. It also has high levels of selenium, copper, potassium, and magnesium.
The Sacred Bee Raw Honey is pure, natural and unpasteurized. It’s also made in Toronto. The other benefits is that it contains essential vitamins and minerals.
For body care there were a few products to sample.
All Bambu’s Bamboo toothbrush has activated chocoal infused bristles. These have powerful antibacterial properties that naturally cleans,whitens and brightens teeth. It’s very well-designed with an ergonomic handle.
P Jentschura AlkaBath is an alkaline mineral bodycare salt. It is made with 8 finely ground precious stones. It’s great for the bath and it helped me relax.
SOME Moroccan Argan Oil improves skin and hair. It is rich in Vitamins A and E and Omega 6&9. The company gives back with 5% of every sales going to purchasing school supplies for less fortunate children in Morocco.
Doterra Essential Oils give a natural energy boost and helps one relax. We tried peppermint and wild orange and they smelled really terrific.
Foliée plant based skincare products use hemp oil, coconut oil and seed oils. There was the Revitalizing Face Cream and the Joint and Muscle Cream. The creams are not greasy, are quite light and smell really great.
For overall health and wellness, there was some interesting products.
Flora Apple Cider Vinegar Red Beet Wellness Shot helps with digestion and detoxification.
To help reduce fatigue and improve energy, the Floradix Liquid Iron and Vitamins Formula is a blend that contains iron (in the form of iron gluconate) and vitamins B2, B6, B12 and C.
Land Art liquid Chlorophyl lime and basil supplement is also a powerful antioxidant. It helps release toxins and alkalize the body.
Ali Tennen is a coach and speaker who specializes in helping people to relax. Her company, Calm Down.ca offers calming coaching sessions to help one become at ease and to improve their sleep. I listened to her download and felt relaxed after a few minutes of her soothing voice.
