yerba mate tea

President of the Save Your World Scott Cecil said that one
consumer who buys any of the three gift bags is already
helping to protect the 5 to almost 12 acres of the rainforest.
The most convenient way to drink mate is to forget the teaballs, teapots,
and strainers and buy a bombilla. One of Argentine delicacies is “dulce de leche”, a form of caramel condensed milk, used in many sweets and pies, like the well-known “mil hojas” (translated as one thousand
leaves), a puff pastry cake.

coconut oil acne

Our skin has many nerve endings that provide the sense of touch and heat.
These skin conditions are actually contact dermatitis
and become very dry. And olive oil soaps are a purely moisturizing luxury.

rosehip oil

If you buy a bottle as is, be sure to choose Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
It has been proven in clinical trials to make a big
difference to your skins condition – especially when it comes to
reducing the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.
It absorbs quickly and can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and is particularly effective in soothing sunburn and reversing damage from the sun.
