Sunlight Dishwashing Liquid launched their Sunlight Extra range by treating us to a day of natural inspiration at Shepstone Gardens. We had a wedding at this lovely venue a few years back, and it still is a favourite spot in my books.
There is so much inspiration from nature, and these are my 5 take-away notes. How do we bring Nature back into our lives?
HOW TO CONNECT WITH NATURE

- Dr Ela Manga reminds us to BREATHE for energy.
Yoga is a great way to reconnect with ourselves and the world.

- Bring nature into your home by incorporating it into your interior design.
We need the wood and the plants and natural elements. Your home should not be perfect, but reflect the natural bounty from outside.

- Incorporate natural ingredients in your day to day living.
We were giving herbs and natural ingredients to crush to be used as a hand massage. It was a inspirational calming experience, selecting the herbs, sugar and oils and crushing it before culminating in a relaxing hand massage.

- To be healthy we must also incorporate more natural ingredients in our food.
Mpho Tshukudu reminds us to eat together, go barefoot while eating(stay grounded), use hands and eat with wooden utensils, AND try to eat in nature. We are not separate from the food we eat. If we are stressed, our bodies can't use all the nutrients that the food provides.

- Focus on more natural products in your home.
There is a need for more conscious natural living, and the products that we use should reflect that. Sunlight has updated their product offering with a nature-inspired range. It smells natural and fresh, with extra punch! Sunlight has been a constant on my shopping list for years, as we could always depend on it to last the longest with the best results. We are excited to test the new range!
