At Rachel’s Garden, we only use NATURAL PRODUCTS, many of which I grow here in my Karoo farm garden, in spite of the occasional raid by our prize bull! SPINACH is one of them! Don’t underestimate the power of the green leaf in beauty products.
COLOURANT: As I don’t use any artificial colourants, spinach is the perfect green colourant, which I use for my handmade soaps. After picking the leaves, I chop and cook them. I then allow the mixture to dry in the Karoo sun before grinding it into a powder and adding it to my hand-made beauty soaps.
We all know spinach is good for us, and the best way to have spinach is by including it in your daily diet or your morning smoothie. But, for those who don’t enjoy the taste, the good news is that it also works from the outside.
When it comes to the skin, spinach contains retinol and is a source of vitamins A, C, E, and K—which work together to help your skin enhance its radiance, heal from scars or sun damage, and fortify its natural barrier. It is also known to reverse pollution damage and is particularly great for dry skin.
So next time you take a bath or have a shower, GO GREEN!
