Birds and Bees

It would be easier if people had instructive signs. Like when you have a super-tight deadline at work: Talk At Your Own Risk. Or when you’re feeling frisky: Open for Business. Okay, you have a signal for that. But sometimes your body needs preparation for up-and-coming activities, to keep things moving smoothly.

No shame. Honey Girl Organics, a local all-organic, all-natural skincare line, has a brand-new product to help. Today they launched an all-natural, edible personal lubricant (in addition to a new exfoliating papaya seed facial cleanser and luminous night cream).

Scrub that Booty

Softer, I Pumice

Dear Poor, Tired Feet:

I know I’ve been bad. I keep wearing shoes all the time, haven’t gone walking on the beach to at least give you an island-style pedicure (all that rainy winter weather wasn’t my fault, though!); and you don’t need to remind me that old nail polish isn’t helping matters.

But here I am, with an apology and solemn vow to make it up to you.

So let me treat you to Ola’s Volcanic Foot Scrub, handcrafted using naturally healing and restorative local ingredients (it’s even paraben-free).

Volcanic pumice and sea salt... Read more »

Knead to Know With a few taps of your fingers, everything you want comes to you on demand (well, almost everything).

Ancient Hawaiian Secret

Somewhere along the way, traditional became a bad word – conjuring visions of conservative clothes and drab foods served at mandatory family gatherings.

But connecting to our roots can often uncover rituals that make you feel good as new again (especially when massage is involved).

At Moku Ola Hawaiian Healing Center, owners and experienced practitioners Aoi and Pi‘ilani Wright employ ancient Hawaiian lomilomi and la‘au lapa‘au techniques to guide each client to a balanced body, mind, and spirit. Targeted therapies, such as a simple shower,... Read more »

Wax On, Wax Off Cliché, but true: it’s a small island. Looking your worst on a late night run for wine and ice cream? Garans you’ll run into your ex, high school arch enemy, or your boss. And when you’ve got a sensitive female appointment, forget privacy – somebody you know will be there, or know someone who knows someone…

So avoid at least one unexpected encounter and visit esthetician Katie Dye, who offers spa-caliber waxing services in her secluded Kailua residence. That means you won’t spot other clients in the parking lot, know any receptionists behind the... Read more »
