Natural Beansūü§Ē?

What IS Natural Beans exactly?

Well it’s me! Lol I am Natural Beans and in turn Natural Beans is a reflection of me. ¬†{breakdown: my parental units refer to me as “Beans” and I am Natural } so that’s how the name came about but why? ¬†Why am I choosing to dedicate such and effort to something like this?

No, it’s not about the money (but anything I make I would hope to put towards my education). ¬†Natural Beans is about providing service and information to people. ¬†Of course my primary goal is to reach those in my own community, but the overall goal is to reach everyone (or as many as possible, regardless of their demographic).

But what service and what information?

As far as information is concerned , i like to get the useful stuff out to people. ¬†All good tea that’s gonna help the world heal itself one individual at a time. ¬†The service right now is my whipped body butter that I make by hand with all natural ingredients. ¬†It was important for me as an individual because i began to become more aware of what I was putting into and on my body. ¬†Knowing that I couldn’t use a lot of what was sold in stores anyway i began looking into creating for myself. ¬†It was a success! ¬†Now the business aspect came in after a close friend of mine suggested I move to sell my product to other people. ¬†Of course I was skeptical at first. ¬†Lol I have a degree in biology for crying out loud; I don’t know the first thing about being in business for myself.

Now, Segway into my future as a Naturopathic physician and this is all going to tie together and blow your mind all at the same time. ūüėā

I realized over the last few months that beginning Natural Beans is the best leap I can take (well one of them) because eventually I have bigger plans as far as my medical career is concerned.  I think this is excellent practice for me.  Learning how to successfully run a business and how to reach out to people and all that other fun stuff.

So yea! That’s natural beans in a nutshell.

Cooking in the Kitchen with Dina

Well world; I’m on a health binge <have been for a while now> But anywho, along with my already long list of things I do to maintain a healthy lifestyle; I am continuing to add stuff as we speak.¬† Last year I got into using more natural products no only in my body but on my body as well <food, cosmetics, meds, etc.> anything that looked like it should be in my organic chemistry book was not coming anywhere near by well decorated temple.

But to get to the nitty-gritty;¬†recently I finally got around to experimenting with making my own toothpaste.¬† First batch¬†yesterday: tasted¬†absolutely horrible and was a¬†tad bit too watery <however, after I used it my teeth felt totally clean>…..no worries though, today I made a new batch…still tasted horrible, just not as horrible, and my teeth still feel amazing afterwards.¬† I am concerned about if I will get the same whitening effect though or if my color will fade since I’m no longer using the fluoride infused one.

Next on my list of things to try making for myself is mouthwash and deodorant <and of course I have to perfect my toothpaste creation>
