Perfect for mums with a little one on the way who are avoiding essential oils, breastfeeding mamas not wanting to upset bub with smells or toxins, or just anyone wanting a super natural, vegan, cruelty-free, award-winning, Australian-made deodorant! 🙋🏽‍♀️

  • Kombucha, kefir... ka-whaaat?!? When Felicity Evans suffered a health crisis, her research into fermented drinks led not only to her recovery, but to the launch of her own water kefir range @imbibeliving. However, learning to make them herself was challenging. “At the beginning of my journey to making these delicious probiotic drinks, every book was super complicated and told me to buy a million bits of equipment that I didn’t need and left me feeling flat and frustrated. Making these drinks doesn’t need to be that complicated,” says Felicity. She has now published a beautiful book, Probiotic Drinks at Home, to teach others how to make gut-healing drinks easily in their own kitchen. Undo some of the silly season damage and learn to make gorgeous healthy treats like berry water kefir, ginger beer, Earl Grey kombucha, probiotic vanilla milk kefir milkshake or a vanilla, winter spice and rosewater honey mead. Yum!
