In no other country or culture, was the concern with beautification and body care so extensive as that of ancient Egypt. Cosmetic implements have been discovered in the earliest graves. When the tomb of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun was opened, one particular jar was discovered to contain a perfumed unguent, still radiantly fragrant after so many centuries. Two of the oils thought to be contained in the unguent are spikenard and frankincense.
Cleopatra VII, 69 BC – 30 BC, was herself credited with writing a book of beauty secrets, an art that she was universally acknowledged as mastering.
Egyptians used cosmetics regardless of sex and social status for both aesthetic and therapeutic reasons. Wrinkling of the skin was treated by applying a wax-based remedy containing gum of frankincense, moringa oil, ground Cyprus grass and fermented plant juice.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and if there’s one thing you hear more than anything it’s how important self-care is to overall wellbeing. What does that mean? Just as every person is an individual, what feeds our soul and nourishes our spirit—and what we need at this moment in our life—looks very different for each person and may change throughout our lives. The challenge is finding and creating habits that fit best with your lifestyle. The great news is that establishing one good habit feeds another. For example, if you exercise more, you are more likely to get better sleep, which will in turn help to clear your mind and regain your focus.
