It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is already upon us again. November brings a host of occasions, celebrations and customs, from the lamp-lighting festival Dawali in India on the 3rd to Thanksgiving in America on the 28th. This month we honor the turkey, and it’s beautiful feathers. Turkeys have been a symbol of abundance and fertility long before the Piligrim’s “first meal" in 1621 with the Northern Native Americans. As time passes, the idea of giving back becomes more and more important. It’s truly part of Jiva-Apoha’s DNA, and we think about it constantly. For this month, we’ll be donating 10% of proceeds from every sale of our SUNDARA FACE oils to the Indian Youth of America. They are dedicated to giving kids who grow up on Indian reservations the fun experience of summer camp and the opportunity to integrate with other kids from all tribes. The emphasis is placed on sharing and educating:  history, tradition and empowerment for positive change. On that note, have you met our two luxe facial treatment oils? SUNDARA (BEAUTY) FACE oil is a cell-regenerating, revitalizing and intensely hydrating light treatment oil with the exquisite, fragrant and replenishing essences of Sandalwood, Jasmine, Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Rose in a base of Grapeseed, Jojoba and Natural Vitamin E oils, balancing for all skin types, but is especially wonderful for dry and mature skins. SUNDARA (HANDSOME) FACE oil is very popular with men, but has built up quite a female fan base as well. It’s perfect for detoxifying and clarifying the complexion, and makes an incredible post-shave treatment. Its ultra-light texture is ideal as a first line of defense against free-radicals, irritation and pore-clogging debris with its silky base of Sesame, Natural Vitamin E and Neem oils, and features pure essences of Sandalwood, Clove, Fennel, Lemon, and Cardamom. We’re grateful each and everyday for your continuous support. THANK YOU for being part of our tribe!
