If you’ve heard the term “microgreens”, you may have wondered about these tiny trending plants. You’ve walked past their little bobbing heads at your supermarket, seen them piled up on plates at your local eatery, and they’re even showing up in the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection

What’s the big fuss about something so small? With Earth Day around the corner, we’re here to walk you through the microgreens phenomenon and help you find out more about these environmentally friendly plants and their health benefits in food and skin care.

WHAT ARE MICROGREENS?

Microgreens are exactly what they sound like: small and green! They are simply mini plants – like broccoli, radish or clover sprouts – that are harvested in their seedling stage before they reach maturity. Planet-friendly because they require few resources, microgreens are ready to go in 14 days or less. These cute little leaves are intensely flavored and add a zesty accent to salads, sandwiches and even soups.

MICROGREEN HEALTH BENEFITS

Besides adding flavor to your plate, microgreens deliver nutrients to your body. According to a study by the US Department of Agriculture, the leaves of almost all microgreens have “four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant.” As USDA researcher Dr. Gene Lester points out, “All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.”

EMINENCE ORGANICS MICROGREENS DETOX COLLECTION


While eating microgreens provides potent nutritional benefits, using microgreens in your skin care products further enhances those healthy effects.

The new Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection harnesses the powerful actions of these leafy ingredients to cleanse and protect the skin from drying environmental stressors with these three products:
1. The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil restores balance and removes impurities.
2. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant brightens and invigorates through exfoliation.
3. The Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment revitalizes and detoxifies dry skin with a lightweight gel cream.

Together, this capsule collection uses microgreens and ingredients like stonecrop to target the drying effects of pollution on the skin. Find out where you can buy the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection at your nearest Eminence spa.

MICROGREENS, ROASTED BEETS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD RECIPE


To experience the natural potency of microgreens both inside and out, you can introduce them in your diet as well as add them to your skin care routine. We love this recipe that tosses together tender microgreens with sweet roasted beets and the rich flavor of goat cheese:

INGREDIENTS:

Salad:
3-4 beets (we used golden beets)
⅓ cup goat cheese
2 cups microgreens

Dressing:
3 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TB white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each one individually in foil, place on baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Unwrap each beet and peel the skin which should slip away easily, then cube.
3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with microgreens gently.
4. Crumble goat cheese on microgreens and top with beets.

My father, my miracle man,

For those of you who have your DAD around you this Fathers Day, I wanted to remind you that the very best gift you can give him is TIME. Sharing time together is the most precious gift anyone can receive this Fathers Day.  So never mind picking out a tie, an ugly sweater or the myriad of things that he can get himself and spend the time with him this Fathers Day.  When that time is no longer there, you cannot ever get it back.


My Dad was such an amazing man. There are endless stories that I could share with you about his character, his wit, his integrity, honesty and his spirit but the most outstanding thing I remember about my father is that he is and was a miraculous soul. My dad was a miracle man, as his sister and best friend called him during his last days. I though it was a fitting title to sum up his life as so many profound miracles adorned him throughout his years. His life was full of miracles since the moment he started on his human journey. All of us in life, when we encounter challenges have a choice to make. We can either choose faith or fear at every turn and dad always chose faith and believed In the power of the mind that makes the body can heal the body and all things natural. He had faith that there are healing powers in prayer and natural cures from the land and that if putting the two together, nothing could stop him and miracles were a plenty. 

My dad was born in Flag mount Feakle, Currackyle, a tiny spot in the mountains of Western Clare in Ireland way above the lakes and ocean. I guess he learned about miracles this from his mother first off, when dad was only a baby he was accidentally dropped into a pot of gruel or porridge that was boiling for hours over an open fire pit in his home in the country. He was burned all over his body,  “to the bone” as dad would put it. His mother quickly made a plaster of flower, clay and healing herbs and remedies from the earth and covered him from head to toe. He learned as an infant to have trust and faith in the healing process of his body. His parent’s faith that he would heal with no scars, no doctors and no visit to the hospital would be his first miracle.  Only a tiny patch where mom would check the healing from time to time. “Where she let in the air,” he would say, the only spot I got is where the air hit it. 


Dad got very sick around 14 years of age and was hospitalized in the remote area of his birthplace. I was surprised to hear about it just recently before his passing since in around 1942 there wouldn’t be a lot going into a hospital that would ever come out of one where he was from. The neighbors would send their condolences if they heard of the horse and carriage headed to the hospital with any child in it. He had a full recovery of coarse. 

Miraculous journey- dad stayed working on wet bog roads before he was of age by giving his older brothers name to be accepted for work before he was of proper age to work. He wanted to earn all he could for his family and knew he had to start early in life. He farmed and worked the land till he was 25 and set sail to America. He remembered how lonely it was when the lights faded into nothing as the boat pulled away from the only place he knew, his home. He of coarse never thought he would make it back there and didn’t dream of flying on airplanes and having a beautiful family here in The United States but all happened and the dark, lonely sail from Ireland opened a whole new life for him. I sometimes think of that story as I think of the time that he closed his eyes and sailed away to heaven from the place he knew here on earth with his family and I have the Faith that he is in a new beautiful place beyond words to explain. 


When he arrived to America he was greeted by family and lived with his sister for many years while her Clan grew and grew. He was always so proud and grateful for the time with all of them and loved to visit his brothers, nieces, nephews, aunt and cousins all in the OLPH Parrish that was then part of Bay Ridge and now Sunset Park. 

When Dad met my mom, he knew she was the one right away, she needed some time but eventually they both agreed that they would share the rest of their lives together. Dad fell very ill before their wedding with stomach ulsers, it was so bad that they had to take out ¾ of his stomach at the time and he nearly died. He was in the hospital for months, became immeciated. They tapped his lungs and left him in the cold for hours upon hours before his surgery. He never understood how he lived through it. He was unable to keep his promise to marry mom, as he lay dying in the hospital. No one thought he would recover and he told mom to find someone else and leave him. After her wedding shower, mom returned the gifts since she knew there wouldn’t be a wedding at that time. She hoped a wedding would happen but wasn’t entirely sure.Well she chose to have faith and stuck by his side and together their faith helped heal him completely in time for a beautiful spring wedding. Dad would always laugh about having to pay for 2 weddings- “a double indemnity” he would chuckle. “I had to be sure I was staying, I paid for her twice” She loved that story too.

My sister, myself, Mom & Dad moved to Bay Ridge from Sunset Park when I was 2 years old. Dad used to be a heavy smoker and probably smoked 2-3 packs a day. That along with being a Ground Hog, building what would become the Red hook tunnels in Brooklyn took a great toll on his breathing. He wanted to quit and couldn’t Every time he would throw a pack out, he would run out and get another one. I can remember back when I was around 5 or 6 years old and I woke up to a smell of smoke in the house. Dad fell asleep while watching TV with a cigarette burning. That cigarette burned the rug and the couch while he slept and could have taken his and all of our lives. That was it. It was basically him or the cigarettes according to Mom and he was equally fed up and the thoughts of what could have happened couldn’t leave his mind. Now during this time, you have to remember there was no patch, no gum, no Chantix or anything besides will power and of coarse Faith that he would one day break free from his habit. 

 His brother Danny told him of some faith healers and dad went off to get healed of smoking after one visit to the healer. His faith healed him of this addiction right on the spot. He never looked back. He knows of coarse that in those moments with the healer, it was his mind and his thinking about the hold the cigarettes had on him had changed forever. 

When I was a little older, Dad developed debilitating back pains and when the doctors told him there is nothing more they Can do and he would be living the rest of his life in a wheelchair, he turned to alternative medicine. Chiropractic care and acupuncture cured him and he went on to work many years after that with no pain at all and walked up until his very last days in the hospital. 

He would always say there is nothing like the natural cures and so when I told him I wanted to drop out of college and become a massage therapist he was taken for a loop. At first he had to wrap his head around how would anyone pay you for that and then he gave his blessing, as his faith was so great that would defy all logic and understanding. Thank goodness that worked out as we are approaching almost 20 years in business helping our amazing community and helping people change their lives each and every day. 

When he was diagnosed with COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Silicosis is a thickening and hardening of the Alveoli many years back, he had tried all sorts of inhalers and Eucalyptus oil steam treatments. The doctors would want to take more and more tests and dad again would say “well of coarse they’ll find something if they keep looking- that’s why we never had them tests in my time.” In late 2010 we started taking tests and in 2011 along with his lung disease, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung, Lymph Node and Prostate Cancer. We were told to get his affairs in order and that he did not have any time left- 3 months would be tops. With his faith in natural healing and alternative, some times  “over the top” alternative cures, traveling to Germany for hypothermia treatments and with weekly acupuncture and medical massage therapy, an arsenal of essential oils, mustard chest treatments and even onions under the bed, he lived a full and pain free life until December of 2014. 

After his Lung Cancer diagnosis, he would be on the phone with his sister in Ireland and she would ask how he was feeling. Dad would always smile and say “Good, well they tell me I have Cancer but I don’t feel a thing, Ah Sure, they have to tell ya something, their getting paid aren’t they! I just have some shortness of breath that’s all.”  The doctors would say things like Cancer, COPD, Silicosis, Lung Disease and all Dad would say till his very last day, “just shortness of breath, its not too bad.” Anyone who is suffering from smoking related lung disease knows it is much more than shortness of breath. 

Over his the last few weeks with me, dad taught me how to live as you say, how to be impeccable with my word and how to have Faith in this beautiful miracle we get to share together for a short time called Life.  The time we share together is the most precious gift and during the gift of time we shared together, he always showed me how to live to be a better person than I could have ever hoped to be without him in my life, how to leave this beautiful earth better than he found it and that the miracle letting go of this life with dignity and Faith is a lesson I take with me through my lifetime. When I think things are challenging, I simply think back and ask My Miracle man for advice in my quiet moments and the answer is always the same. Have faith, keep your head up, keep smiling, enjoy yourself, don’t worry about nothing and God is Good. 

Every nurse and doctor that would poke and prod at him would get a “thank you” and a “not doing too bad.” He would always say, “Be good to those who persecute you and calumniate you”- I still don’t know the meaning of that word but my family and I sure have a great time laughing about it! He was always so good to those who hurt him, it seemed that it just made him a better man. 

He was a living angel and his faith took him on his final journey home to God, but he did not take this journey alone. His last and final miracle on this earth and as he started on his journey to God, he took his precious niece’s hand and they held each other as they started on their new journey to heaven together on the very same night- just 2 hours apart. He was so humble; he didn’t even need to have his own day. He always said God would be god to take her didn’t want her to suffer so when he had the chance, he took her by the hand so neither of them would be alone and they both took that final journey together. Happy Fathers Day in heaven Dad, I am celebrating all the moments we had together. Thank you for your time, your lessons and your Faith. I take it with me every step of my journey. 

James F Brody is my miracle man.

RIP 12.3.14

Father’s Day is Sunday June 18, 2017 – what does the man in your life need for his special day? Make this the year that you leave behind boring standbys like socks and ties for exceptional gifts that boost his health and wellness. Whether it’s the natural goodness of Eminence Organic Skin Care or the perfect hammock for some downtime, here are our favorite recommendations for the best Father’s Day gifts this year:

BEST HEADPHONES FOR EXERCISE

Whether Dad is training for a half-ironman or wanting to get back to the gym with the help of his Sworkit fitness app, he needs light-weight earphones to keep moving! We love the Bose SoundSport wireless headphones for Father’s Day because they’re sweat-resistant, stay securely in the ears and connect wirelessly.

HANGING HAMMOCK

Make sure that Dad takes mental health breaks this summer with a cozy new hammock. If he’s fond of the occasional outdoor snooze, he probably has his eye on the ENO Doublenest Hammock – spacious for one but roomy enough to handle an extra kid or two napping with Dad.

FITNESS TRACKER

Help Dad stay healthy with a Father’s Day gift idea like the Fitbit Flex 2. We’re hooked on this slim-fitting wristband that counts daily steps, tracks exercise and keeps a sleep record. The most fun feature? The Fitbit lets you join an online fitness competition with Dad and you can cheer him on!

SKIN CARE FOR MEN

Don’t forget that Dad’s skin needs attention as well and there’s nothing more healthy than natural, organic and Biodynamic® skin care for the man in your life. We know that men secretly love facials and spa treatments – why not book him at an authorized Eminence spa or pick out an easy at-home skin care routine for your Father’s Day gift idea?

CLEANSE

Men love our best-selling Eminence Organics Citrus Exfoliating Wash to cleanse and exfoliate in a single fuss-free step. The invigorating citrus smell makes this a must-have in the shower.

TONE

Turn to our popular stone crop ingredient with Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist for your man. Movie star dad Hugh Jackman used this toner on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, keeping his complexion fresh and hydrated yet matte.

MOISTURIZE

Keep the skin biome healthy with a dose of Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer. Enriched with “good” probiotic bacteria, this moisturizer improves the look of problem skin and balances hydration.

For an extra boost to a basic skin care routine, add this mixology of Eminence Organics Balancing Masque Duo and Sour Cherry Masque – formulated for men’s complexions:

With days growing longer and temperatures heating up, it’s time for a summer skin care overhaul. And changing up your skin care routine for the season calls for more than just slapping an extra layer of sunscreen on your face. A summer skin care revamp means rethinking your routine to protect yourself from different types of skin damage and seasonal dryness.

In order to help you, we’ve designed two daytime skin care routines – one essential and the other enhanced – from Eminence Organics products specially selected for the season. Read on to learn more about the Eminence Organics Skin Care Routines for Summer:

THE ESSENTIAL EMINENCE ORGANICS SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMER:

1. CLEANSE 
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser – Target dark spots from the summer sun with Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser. Our two actives, Gigawhite™ and Natural Hydroquinone Alternative work to brighten the appearance of your skin while you cleanse.

To help prevent summer skin problems, use our Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser as an alternative cleanser.

2. TONE
Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist – Unlike drugstore toners, Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist doesn’t contain alcohol that dries the skin.

LIP CARE
Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 – One of the most overlooked body parts for sun care, the lips need just as much protection from sun damage. With our new Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm, a swipe of this protective lip treatment defends the vulnerable lip area from full-spectrum UV rays. Then, keep working on those luscious lips while you sleep by using the award winning Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm overnight.

COSMETICS
Eminence Organics Vanilla Latte Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25 – Soften and protect skin with this antioxidant-rich, non-clogging tinted moisturizer. Perfect your look with this lightweight sheer coverage and a natural mineral zinc finish for SPF 25 sun protection.

The weather is warming up and prom season is just around the corner!  For a rundown on how to get that “prom perfect” skin, Teen Vogue consulted A-List facialist Joanna Vargas. According to Vargas, if you want “a pristine complexion, you’ll need to plan accordingly!” because “good skin doesn’t happen overnight”. Here’s a couple of great suggestions from Joanna on how to prep your skin for prom.

Four weeks before:

This is the time you should start to be “more diligent with your beauty routine”. “It’s important to be exfoliating at least twice week” Vargus says. Her favorite scrub for teens is our Citrus Exfoliating Face Wash.

One Week Before:  

“This is the perfect time for a full body exfoliation to really get glowing”. She recommends our Coconut Sugar Scrub.

Even if prom isn’t your thing – it’s important to remember that a good skincare routine is vital for a healthy, glowing complexion. In the words of Joanna Vargas – “your skin is a reflection of both your mental and physical health as well as the products that you’re putting on and taking off of it on a daily basis”. Now that’s great skin advice!

We could name a thousand things we love about beauty, but one of our favorite things are the trends. In fashion, we often feel like the best trend is no trend at all, but in beauty, experimentation is part of the fun. Sometimes, trying new trends is less about purchasing the newest product formula and more about trying new color combinations. So, let’s talk about five of the coolest color trends for spring 2017.

Spring 2017 Beauty Color Trends

Color Trend #1: Brown

spring 2017 color trends, brown lipstick

How to Wear It: On your lips! It may sound very 90s, but brown lips are back and it looks amazing on every single skin tone. From chocolate to pinky nudes, brown is every where you turn. Our trick to wearing this trend without going overboard is to choose a shade that is slightly darker than your natural lip color.

Try this: Lisa PureMoist Lipstick; add a subtle pink to the lipstick by layering Pink Lip Pencil or Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain underneath it.

Color Trend #2: Peach

spring 2017 color trends, monochromatic peach makeup

How to Wear It: Peach is one of our favorite colors for spring because you can wear it all over your face in both matte and shimmery textures. If you want to try this monochromatic look, we recommend creating a subtle gradient peach eye makeup look and then keep your cheeks and lips natural with just a hint of color.

Try this: Peaches & Cream Bronzer; mix and match the four peachy shades to create different eye makeup and blush looks.

Color Trend #3: Mauve

spring 2017 color trends, mauve eye shadow

How to Wear It:  We like to give our complexion and overall glowy effect by creating a smokey mauve eye makeup look. Create this simple look by applying a light mauve shade to the lid, then adding drama with a darker wine tone or even a deep brown. You can also use a mauve nail polish for the perfect transitional manicure for spring.

Try this: Soft Kiss PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; this eye shadow trio has all the necessary shades required to create the perfect mauve smokey eye look.

Color Trend #4: Blue

spring 2017 color trends, blue eye liner under eye

How to Wear It: We’ve said it before, but blue eye makeup is the IT trend this spring, and we promise it can be chic and completely work appropriate. Our favorite way to add a little blue to our look is to line our bottom lash line with blue eyeliner.

Try this: Midnight Blue Eye Pencil; read this blog post to find out how real women wear blue eye makeup.

Color Trend #5: Pink

spring 2017 color trends, draping, blush explosion

How to Wear It: Can you say blush explosion? No, we aren’t talking about the woeful moment when you accidentally drop your blush while multi-tasking in the morning. This is a playful way of describing our favorite spring trend, draping. What is draping? It’s a technique that uses blush instead of bronzer to contour.

Try this: Susan PureMoist Lipstick and Pink Quartz PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; go all out by pairing your rosy cheeks with a touch of pink to the eye and lips.
