Liquid Gold Never Looked So (Colloidal) Silver

Mar 01 2016

Colloidal silver has been used for 115 years as a natural antibiotic in countless applications. It fell out of favor with the advent of prescription antibiotics. But in recent years, as antibiotic resistance to potentially lethal bacteria like MRSA and SARS has escalated, the use of colloidal silver is making a come back and gaining respect. Like anything else, there has been much debate on the different forms of silver (ionic silver, silver protein, true colloidal silver). I want to save you a lot of time, and focus on the scientifically backed principles and guidelines for the best option: true colloidal silver.  I’ve listed a number of resources at the bottom of this page that validate the safety and effectiveness of colloidal silver. For now, we’ll focus on the benefits. So what can colloidal silver do? Here are a just a few of its incredible health benefits: Proven effective against antibiotic resistant microbes like SARS and MRSA Helps eliminate the streptoccocus and staphloccocus bacteria It can be used for ear infections When used topically, creates a healthy environment for thriving skin by killing bacteria and dissolving pore blocking sebum. Use it topically for yeast infections, oral thrush and jock itch It has anti-tumor properties against MCF-7 human breast cancer cells You can spray it on wounds and infections for faster healing and to minimize scarring Use it regularly to support your immune system Clearly colloidal silver is liquid gold! It is my go to supplement choice for regular health maintenance, just about every sickness from the flu- to strep throat and even topical applications for minor scrapes and burns. My husband and I have reduced our medicine/first aid cabinet to a few boxes of Band-Aids, some hydrogen peroxide and our favorite brand of colloidal silver, Sovereign Silver. So are you surprised that I incorporated and said “liquid gold” into a […]

#MyFaceAfterGrace Skin Care Challenge.

Dec 28 2015

I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days to January one. New year, new start and many goals in mind. Something about the new year births new ambition in me! Not only will I be kicking myself back into healthy eating, I decided to take it a step further and challenge myself (and you) to some serious skin care commitments with serious results. Over the years, I have become well diverse in the many facets of beauty. Growing up in a salon, attending Aveda for cosmetology, practicing hair and skin for the last decade and eventually creating my own wholesome line of organic beauty products, one thing remains. No matter who you are, where you come from or where you are going, the image of yourself remains crucial for your overall well-being. While I believe that beauty truly does comes from within, it is a fact that your outward opinion of yourself directly affects your inward self. This is called self image. There is overwhelming research showing how ones self image can directly affect everything from daily moods and career success to social status and intimacy behind closed doors. If we know that the way we feel about ourself is directly related to the way we look on the outside, doesn’t it make sense to nurture and protect the organ that covers our entire body? Our skin is an organ that thrives on daily cleansing, exfoliation and nutrient-rich topical food (also known as serum and daily moisturizer). It wasn’t until I started creating and using my own nutritious skin care products that I saw a miraculous change in my skin. Not a day goes by that I am not complimented on my skin. Not my shirt, or the necklace I am wearing, my skin! I can tell you that THAT makes […]

Acorns, Squirrels and Grace Green Beauty

Oct 18 2015

At Grace Green Beauty we’re like squirrels. We’re obsessed with acorns. They don’t do much for our skincare products but they sure help us spread the concept of grace. We’ve realized that such a tiny thing can, with a little loving, spread grace as it germinates and grows into a strong, majestic oak tree. As you know, oak trees aren’t just any old tree. They are tall and strong, providing, shade, lumber and truly sturdy limbs for some of the best tree houses a kid can build. They represent truth, stability, wholesomeness and nobility. And it’s really fun to jump in a pile of its leaves. So why are we nuts about acorns and oak trees?  Because the process from germination to growth are the essential elements for how we at Grace Green Beauty spread grace throughout the world. Our companies commitment and standard display the respect we have for Mother Nature. But we want to do more to celebrate the planet and the creatures who inhabit it. So we have started a quiet revolution—one tree at a time. Welcome to GraceGrown: a Living Gift.  Here’s how our special gift to the community works: Children with participating schools, day care centers and church groups collect acorns wherever they can find them. We tell them to look for acorns free of worms, holes and fungus. Kids LOVE harvesting acorns! Next, they perform a “float test” by putting the acorns in a bucket of water and allowing them to settle. Any acorns that float or are mushy are considered “bad nuts”. The kids determine the best acorns and toss the others.  The children germinate the remaining acorns by placing them in plastic bags full of saw dust and store them in the refrigerator. This process is known as stratification, which is simply exposing a […]

My dearest friends,   It is with mixed emotions—an eager heart, hopeful anticipation, joy, trepidation, and yes, sadness and fear—that I pen this post informing you of my departure from the salon industry.    I’ve been honored to work alongside a cast of excellent colleagues, all the while being granted so many opportunities to grow and develop not only in my career, but personally as well.  For more than a decade, it has been an honor, privilege and delight to provide hair and beauty care for friends who have become like dear family members.  Over the years I have looked forward to seeing many of you on a regular basis, refreshing not only your outer beauty, but hopefully your inner beauty too, as you’ve done for me by sharing yourself and pouring into my heart and soul.  Together we have celebrated all of life’s joys—weddings, births (three of my own!), graduations, career successes and yes, sadness.  Thank you—each and every single one of you–for your support during my time with Kim Harper and during Grace Green Beauty’s launch and formative years.  Your guidance, support, encouragement, comfort, and moreover friendship, have kept me strong.  A million thanks to you.  I treasure the time we’ve shared together.  You’ve all become a part of me, and by virtue of that—a part of Grace Green Beauty.   If you know me, then you know my passion is to serve others, my family and beauty.  I’ve been graced with such an amazing opportunity by way of Grace Green Beauty, allowing me to combine all three.   Words cannot convey the pure joy I derive in providing you with honest, holistic beauty products.
