Natural Matcha Skincare: An Interview with Heart of Gold

January 31, 2020

Matcha takes care of us, inside & out. For this upcoming Valentine's season, we're reminded that it's *so* important to take a (matcha)moment for yourself! We hear it all the time, but what really causes us to pause and listen as an act of love? 💘🍵

We recently paused over a cup of tea to talk about what taking time for yourself means with our bff Ally Draizen from HeartofGold. Not only does Ally TRULY have a heart of gold, but the love and care she lives out on a day to day basis shine through her exquisite skincare products as well. A few of her favorite products guessed it, #MizubaMatcha! 

Ally co-creates with plants. Her products are heart-centered and plant-focused. As her words aptly state, "I make each product by hand: infused with vibrational medicine, intuition, loving intention, and nutrient-rich whole plants. I also use the discernment of 20 years as an esthetician to manifest products that feel good, smell good, and work beautifully." 

While most of us know matcha's powerhouse benefits as a tea, did you know it's also fantastic used in skincare? Ally features Mizuba Matcha in her Flying Dreams Oilserum and Yuzu Shiso Whipped Shea Butter. High-quality matcha aides in fighting inflammation, so its use as a facial serum and body butter are great for calming, moisturizing and repairing the skin.

Watch our conversation over tea for the chance to learn from a 22-year pro esthetician on why she loves matcha for her skin!

Mizuba Matcha at Boon Boona Cafe
Cafe Feature: Boon Boona

July 24, 2020 1 Comment

We thought we'd take a moment today to highlight one of our partners: Boon Boona Coffee, in Renton, WA. Much like matcha is the star of Japan's iconic tea ceremony, did you know coffee has a similar history with its very own ceremony? The founder of Boon Boona, Efrem, is sharing that special piece of coffee's culture with his community and we are excited to experience it. We hope their story is just as meaningful to you as it is to us, and we look forward to highlighting more of our friends in the future.
