In Balance With Nature #ZENINSIDE
MaiWistik is designed to help you take control of your radiance and well-being from what you eat and how you take care of your body. The basis of our collection is ancient plant wisdom, which has been enchanted to the products by Estonian naturopath Mai-Liis Kivistik. These are handmade products and we pay special attention, tenderness and care to each of them.
Estonians are a witch nation precisely because of their ability to know the plant world. Medicinal plants have been growing with us for centuries, and even a 100 years ago every Estonian knew so much about medicinal plants. In general, we have reached to a moment when we don't even dare to go to pick blueberres anymore, because maybe there is a wrong plant that gets in to our mouths.
The compositions of our natural cosmetics are natural and come directly from nature. Does not contain chemical additives and supports the skin's natural glow. We should only put on the skin, which we would be happy to put in our mouth, because everything that comes in contact with the skin is absorbed very quickly into our bloodstream.
The whole being is important - you have to take responsibility for all your well-being by going back to nature.
Facial yoga really works
Facial yoga is a real way to reduce double chin (Mirja's experience)
I'm Mirja, a 26 year old young woman who has participated in a facial yoga course. I go to school and work at the same time, so my life can be considered quite busy. I often have to set myself boundaries and make time for myself, otherwise I just write my work until half past midnight, as the rest of the time is simply lost elsewhere. I have two godchildren and an adorable baby girl, so I'm also what you might call a half-time mum
Nature Therapist - who is it?
A naturopath or herbalist or phytotherapist is a plant lover with a holistic world view, whose aim is to bring people into deep contact with nature. Human beings should depend on nature and be in direct contact with it, because that is where everything necessary for life comes from. Each one of us is part of a greater whole. The environment we live in affects us and we in turn affect the environment. Estonians have always been considered a witch people, thanks to their knowledge of the medicinal plant.
Life on Earth cannot function without plants. Humans breathe in the oxygen produced by plants, use plants for food and medicine, and dead plants decompose to form soil. If we can notice our surroundings, we will discover that plants communicate with us and want to support us.
Does insect bites get in the way of enjoying summer?
Are insect bites stopping you from enjoying summer?
Insect bites can strike unexpectedly. There are a number of insects around us that can bite or sting during the barbecue season, such as bees, ants, fleas, beetles, gnats, mosquitoes and wasps. However, most of these don't bother us unless we bother them, but knowing what to do if an incident happens is always helpful.
5 reasons, why detox is important
Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons - a time of new beginnings, but cleansing the body is suitable for any time of year. All green young plants are very nutrient-dense, because they have the power within them to sprout from the soil. They provide a variety of vitamins and minerals, chlorophyll and carotenoids, antioxidants, active enzymes and even essential amino acids. You could bring sprouts, nettles, tea leaves, currants and, of course, dandelions to the table. All kinds of edible 'weeds' could be plentiful on the spring table - smoothies, soups, salads.
An early spring starter is also the carrot, which is very effective in replenishing vitamin C reserves, boosting immunity and cleansing the body. Cleansing the body doesn't have to happen only in spring. Find a time that suits you, when the pace is a little slower, and do it. Trust me, your body will thank you.

Is natural deodorant worth a try?
Natural deodorant - is it time to try?
Natural deodorant, alcohol-based spray or 72h protective sweat stick - which is best for your body? We all sweat, and where sweat accumulates, odour follows - the underarms are one of the biggest contributors to body odour
We rely on deodorant so much these days that forgetting to put it on in the morning can feel as bad as not brushing your teeth. Smelly armpits and sweat stains can be embarrassing, but luckily deodorant can help to control armpit odour
