For centuries, the ancient Taoist populations have used tonic herbs for optimal health and well being. Their beliefs and practices were aimed at longevity and a beautiful by-product of this were the positive effects on outer (and inner) beauty.
At SuperFeast HQ, much of our community have a specific interest in wanting to feel more vital, have clearer skin, sooth inflammation, support strong nails and tips for lustrous and healthy hair. And we love sharing how to get that glowing feeling. The SuperFeast Beauty Bible is a resource filled with loads of stuff, like:
DIY recipe Medicinal Mushroom Face Butter
Tonic Herb Exfoliator
The Radiant Face Mask
Plus tips for strong nails, shining eyes, healthy hair and clear skin
We explore the ancient philosophies behind beauty herbs and dive into why the Taoists revered long hair for its role in supporting and enhancing their quest for longevity - by acting as an antenna to better capture the energy (Qi) of the environment. Wild hey!
We share eight areas for you to focus on if you have symptoms relating to skin. Plus according to the Taoist traditions, our skin is actually an extension of the Lung channel. But what does this actually mean if you experience blemishes, psoriasis and other skin issues? Download the Beauty Bible to dive right in:)
You'll get our view on healthy, shining, bright eyes. Hint: the eyes are an extension of the liver meridian, so a healthy, supported, nourished liver will really support the health of your peepers.
Of course, we share all our favourite tonic herbs and adaptogens for that inner and outer radiance. If this sounds like you, download the SuperFeast Beauty Bible here <3
The reason that Qi herbs are such a staple; I think it has a lot to do with this idea that's been entrenched in Chinese philosophy, in Taoist philosophy: humans being this bridge between Heaven, Sky, and Earth.
