Hand  Salve, what do you know about it?
Hand Salve contains oil and beeswax and no water, which gives it a thicker consistency and longer shelf life.  Most hand salves are made with natural oils such as olive oil or jojoba oil and beeswax. These are the key ingredients that replenish moisture in the skin. The skin on the hands generally takes a much harsher beating than any other skin on the body.  In order to treat very dry hands, first, wash the hands in warm water to soften the skin. Be sure not to use harsh soap as that will only worsen the problem. Once the hands are warm and the skin has softened, rub a generous amount of salve into the hands. Be sure to target the fingertips and knuckles, as these are the parts that chap most easily.
With winter right around the corner, you will need hand salve to combat the cold.  #natural #beauty #products #supplement #herbal #herbs #herbsbhutan #organicbhutan #authenticbhutan #madeinbhutan #tasteofbhutan #handsalve #skin #moisturize #naturaloils #hands #healing #winter #tipsandtricks #tips #tricks

It is believed that prayer flags spread the blessing of Buddha.  Prayer Flags are hung high above the ground in a place overseeing the river and the settlement. As the wind blows, it is believed the prayers written on the flags are dispersed as a blessing to every human and every being that it encounters. When the flags move with the slightest breeze, they cleanse and bless the air around them.  Prayer flags gradually fade into the universe and become indistinguishable with the passing of time due to rain, wind, and sunlight. It's the circle of life. Throughout the years, prayer flags are continuously replaced with new ones. Our hope for humanity and the world is continually expressed through it, as well as the never-ending cycle of life of which humans and all other beings are part.  #lungta #prayerflags #blessing #buddha #believe #traditional #culture #buddhism #circleoflife #hope #humanity #harmony #natural #beauty #products #supplement #herbal #herbs #herbsbhutan #organicbhutan #authenticbhutan #madeinbhutan #tasteofbhutan

Shilajit is an important, known component of ayurvedic medicine.
Traditionally, #shilajit is consumed by people from Nepal, #Bhutan, and the North of India, and children usually take it with milk in their breakfast. The Sherpas claim to have shilajit as part of their diet; they constitute a population of strong men with very high levels of healthy longevity.
Shilajit is a potent and very safe dietary #supplement, potentially able to prevent several diseases, but its main medical application now appears to come from its actions in benefit of cognition and potentially as a dietary supplement to prevent #Alzheimer's disease.  There are lots of #health_benefits associated with consuming Shilajit. They help in preventing or slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, improve the low testosterone level, reduce Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, slow the aging process, help overcome the high altitude sickness problem, help in improving the Iron Deficiency Anemia, Improve fertility in men, and improve #heart_health.

#Tablemat  Tables in ancient times were usually just simple boards made of wood.
In contrast to modern dining, during the ancient time, forks were not provided, nor were spoons and knives. At the gathering, each individual would be required to bring their own knife and spoon. No napkins were available, so people relied on their clothing to wipe their mouths with. 
Isn’t this interesting?  It was only in the 1900s when creativity in table settings began to blossom, with themed table settings becoming increasingly popular. Many items were used to set the Themed Table, such as placemats or tablemates, flowers, and so forth. Placemats are essential to Setting the Table.  Bhutan has adapted to this table setting style and incorporated Bhutanese Textile into it.

Prayer Wheel
It is a belief that when one turns the prayer wheel, by reciting the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM, all living creatures are relieved from their misery, and merit, peace, and kindness radiate throughout the universe, providing enlightenment to all sentient beings.  In Bhutan, it is a very common sight to see elderly to very young kids turning the prayer wheel. Traditional houses in Bhutan have a small wooden prayer wheel attached to the entrance. Anyone that comes to that house, do make sure that they turn that prayer wheel, which brings peace and harmony to that house and the world.  The prayer wheel is a way for Bhutanese to gain merit for themselves and to bring world peace and harmony.

The beekeepers do not use any harmful pesticides, they rely on natural  manure to increase their yields. This good natured relationship with nature ensures the quality of honey at the same time sustainable ecosystem. This honey is found in Bhutan and harvested by the rural communities under the project @ogopbhutan .  The Queen's Project Office is behind this initiative.

“Art is Freedom”- Sonam Yangchen
Parents can play a huge role in instilling values to their children. Sonam Yangchen’s father takes the credit for her unwavering interest in Art. Her father was a painter and it is the reason why people in her family all love art and do art.  Painting is her first love and now she is sharing that love to people. She clearly remembers the first ever painting, a collage art that she sold when she was in her 9th Standard, at VAST.  This painting was sold to an American lady at Nu.3000. She holds this momentous occasion in high regard as this was her life’s biggest achievement and also the first income she received.The main elements involved in her art were mountains, chortens(Stupas) and prayer flags. The aura displayed through her art, in turn, had a massive impression on her future.  Painting for her is happiness, joy and true love. Now, she has turned her passion to her career.
She has a very simple concept. It's fine for her if the business doesn’t grow big, what matters for her is that the love that she has for art gets resonated with her dear customers and makes them feel happy. Ultimately, what she has been receiving is what she has been giving-the seeds of pure passion and dedication harvesting recognition and appreciation.  She consistently shares her love for painting with her daughter.” Mama, please create lots of paintings, sell them and buy me lots of toys”, this is what her daughter says to her now but later she hopes that her daughter will continue her legacy and keep her love for art alive.
Sonam Yangchen has started her art business that goes by the name Rinyang.  She creates paintings on wooden earrings incorporating traditional Bhutanese textiles.

IT’S TIME TO EAT FLOWERS  The use of flowers in food dates back thousands of years among the Chinese, Greek and Romans. Throughout history, flowers have contributed to many different cultures and have been documented in culinary records. They don’t just look pretty and smell pretty, some of them taste pretty good and pack in a punch as far as wellness goes!  Today, edible flowers are not just eaten but used for aesthetic purposes.  Most edible flowers are rich in Vitamin C, and each boasts a wealth of individual benefits that make them a must-add to your diet.  Edible flowers are an excellent source of nutrients, commonly packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, all of which can help lower the risk of certain health problems like cancer and heart disease.  In the land of happiness, Druk Metho (Dragon Flower) has started this organic flower farming business thus distributing organic edible flowers around the globe.  Druk Metho started this initiative to help reverse the trend of rural-urban migration by developing more lucrative and diverse livelihoods for rural farming communities and empowering women in the villages. Druk Metho is the first and only EU-certified organic farm in Bhutan, making an important contribution to the country’s goal to go 100% organic.  #edibleflower #flowerbhutan #flowerbeauty #drukmetho #organic #natural #handpicked #naturallygrown #grow #organicfarming #farmingbhutan

Druk Metho started this initiative to help reverse the trend of rural-urban migration by developing more lucrative and diverse livelihoods for rural farming communities and empowering women in the villages. Druk Metho is the first and only EU-certified organic farm in Bhutan, making an important contribution to the country’s goal to go 100% organic.

#Origin
A mandala is a symbolic art of the universe for Buddhists. Mandala as an artistic form first appeared in India around the 1st century BC. Gradually it appeared in Nepal in the 7th century.
What does ‘mandala’ symbolize?
Mandala symbolizes the core of spirituality. It represents an age-old concept that the universe is a never-ending phenomenon with the circle of life and death recurring in a cyclic fashion. The interpretation of a mandala can vary according to the lens of an individual, therefore the perception can differ accordingly.  #Significance
Mandala provides one with an opportunity to be aware of unhealthy thoughts and habits.
Some spiritual traditions use mandalas for meditation or for marking a spiritual space.
Mandalas are used in mindfulness sessions which help you move closer to the center of self-being, leaving behind the various illusions of yourself that clouds and limits your spiritual and psychological vision.  #Mandalas in Bhutan
Mandalas are depicted in different forms of art in Bhutan today, especially in paintings commonly known as thangka and mandala. You will find at-least one thangka in every Bhutanese house, as it is culturally and spiritually associated with them.
If you do not have a piece of this mystical art at your home yet, now is the time!  #mandala #mandalabhutan #mandalaart #mandalapainting #bhutaneseart #impermanence #selfunderstanding #selfaccept #culture #tradition #spiritual #spiritualliving

The complex design of the scarves is inspired by the unique and distinctive motifs that can be found throughout the Kingdom of Bhutan.
The weaving technique is a skill passed on through generations of artisans’ families. As a result, each weaving style is new as well as unique and gives a different look and feel from the previous design.  The scarves are naturally dyed using colorants from plant sources such as leaves, roots or woods. The hand woven cotton scarves are great for the cool Autumn breeze.
Each scarf is weaved with love and care by the women working under @cdk_home , a Bhutanese contemporary apparel, accessories and homeware brand. CDK is a brand who is there to help women of Bhutan become Independent.  #autumnbhutan #fall #leaves #october #autumnleaves #trees #autumncolors #leaf #fallcolors #forest #seasonsbhutan #handmadebhutan #artbhutan #weaving #womenofbhutan #traditionalbhutan #naturaldye #scarf #scarves #scarfbhutan #cdkbhutan #cdkscarfs

Do you know the reason why herbal teas are celebrated all over the world? 
Herbal tea allows people to reap the health benefits of various herbs, spices, and plants through a process that is easy to consume and digest. Most people would find it quite difficult (and not particularly pleasant) to consume healthful ingredients like cinnamon or lavender in their raw form. By steeping them into a tasty warm beverage, you can easily add these spices and flowers into your diet on a daily basis in a way that is both enjoyable and sustainable.  #herbaltea #herbaltealover #herbs #homegrown #organicgardening #growyourown #vegetables #exercise #nutrition #wellness #weightloss #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #organic #benefits #instagram #energy #body #skin #selfcare #diet #business #natural #motivation #food #lifestyle

Since the dawn of time, herbal teas have been around.  A well-known Greek physician deciphered the existence of more than 600 remedies in the 1st century AD, including many healing plants that could be steeped in water to create healing infusions.  There is historic documentation of herbal teas dating back to ancient Egypt and China where texts were discovered describing their medicinal properties.  The ancient historians claimed that these herbal blends were used not just for their health benefits, but also for their ability to induce a sense of calmness and spiritual awareness. Herbal teas became popular over time simply due to their taste and aroma.  It is still a common practice to use dried flowers, fruits, barks, and other ingredients for wellness. Herbal teas are often used to promote mental and physical wellbeing.  #herbaltea #herbaltealover #herbs #homegrown #organicgardening #growyourown #vegetables #exercise #nutrition #wellness #weightloss #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #organic #benefits #instagram #energy #body #skin #selfcare #diet #business #natural #motivation #food #lifestyle #skincare #love #beauty

Cordyceps! As mystical as the name sounds, Cordyceps hold a great significance in Bhutan. The two species which are prominently found in Bhutan are Cordyceps Sinensis and Cordyceps Militaris.
Cordyceps is a genus of parasitic fungi that grows on the larvae of insects.
When these fungi attack their host, they replace its tissue and sprout long, slender stems that grow outside the host’s body.  It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to treat fatigue, sickness, kidney disease, rheumatism, nausea, headache, cough, diarrhea, and many other ailments.  Cordyceps sinensis and Cordyceps militaris, amongst 400 species of Cordyceps that are found in the world, are prominently believed to have health benefits.  People in Bhutan collect cordyceps sinensis, locally known as Yartsa Goenbub. It can be found at an altitude of 14,500 feet to 17,000 feet in the mountains of Bhutan, just meters below the snow line. The struggle one goes to collect these cordyceps is beyond one's imagination and adds up to its value.

"It is impossible for me to find a noble job like this where I can earn good merits with financial support." - Mr. Tshering.
In Bhutan, the act of making incense is considered a noble and very valuable job.
We bring you Mr. Tshering, a Nado Poizakhang employee for the past 8 years.  Eight years ago, he was looking for a job, but every job he got was not what he wanted. He was a religious man who wanted to work in a place where he could gain good merit by serving Buddha. When he came across Nado Poizakhang, he realized his wish had been granted. It has been eight years since he found the job he was looking for and he loves it and wishes to continue working there.....  #nado_poizokhang #handmade #noblejob #job #goodmerits #religion #incensebhutan #loveincense #asia #employmentbhutan #butterlamp #incensesticks

#brand #bhutan is not something created recently, it was something thought about #decades ago by Mr. Nado……..
There used to be a time in Bhutan where all the incense available in the market was imported. Bhutanese burn incense as part of their daily lives, but the market did not offer Bhutanese incense. Hence, Mr. Nado felt that he should create a Brand Bhutan image in terms of Incense and keep it alive forever. He was specialized in making incense and was working at the government-owned incense-making unit. Thus, when the government gave him the opportunity to take over the unit, he did not hesitate. With #privatization and government giving him the opportunity, he started his new journey with this incense-making business which is now a family-run business and continues to give people of Bhutan and people all over the world an #incense of #happiness and #peace.  #nado_poizokhang #handmade #madeinbhutan #brandbhutan #importreduction #government #opportunity #incensebhutan #loveincense #asia #employmentbhutan #butterlamp #incensesticks #happinessbhutan #peacebhutan #happinessincense #peaceincense #healing

350 Years old Recipe  The all-natural formula Mr.Nado uses for making incense has been kept a closely guarded secret between himself and Lamdon, his daughter. It is derived from a recipe that is more than 350 years old, and it comes from the Mindrolling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in India.  The fragrance has also been enhanced with another recipe from the Drukpa Kagyu Buddhist school to maximize its healing properties. In his regular incense, he uses about 30 ingredients, and 108 in the version reserved for ceremonies of great significance.  The glue that they use to seal the package is also traditionally made out of flour and water.  #nado_poizokhang #naturalformula #goodhealth #happinessincense #secret #350yearsold #Buddhism #perfume #healing #healingpowers #ingredients #madeinbhutan#handmade #incensebhutan #loveincense #asia #employmentbhutan #butterlamp #incensesticks

#Origin of #incense  Incense comes from the Latin word incendere, which means 'to burn'. Incense is believed to have been used by Egyptian priests in prayers and to fumigate tombs in ancient Egypt. Ritualism and spirituality have long been associated with incense. As early as 3300 BC, incense was used in southern Asia, including India and parts of ancient China, where it was used for prayer and worship.  Traditionally, incense has been used mostly for religious purposes in Bhutan. In Bhutan, butter lamps with incense are always lit as an offering to the victorious.   Nado Poizokhang manufactures hand-made incense sticks and is the oldest and largest manufacturer in Bhutan. Previously, it was a government-owned organization, but when privatization happened, the government asked Mr. Nado to take over. Now, it is a family-owned business with employees. Their initiatives have provided employment opportunities to illiterate and underprivileged individuals.   Nadopoizokhang - Thank you la  #nado_poizokhang #handmade #incensebhutan #loveincense #asia #employmentbhutan #butterlamp #incensesticks #privatizationbhutan #opportunity #spirituality #religiouspurpose

Happy Blessed Rainy Day!🎉😊
On the #Buddhist calendar, Blessed Rainy Day is considered especially #holy . 🙏
The purpose of the holiday is not just to thank the #rain during the #monsoon #season for helping to #cultivate a successful #harvest. It is actually more literal than that.  In the #Himalayan #kingdom, all water is believed to be imbued with a special #elixir during the day, sprinkled from #heaven by Buddha.  According to #legend, eons ago there was a Buddha named Dipenkara. After he died, the King of the Nagas (mythical serpent people) erected a statue to him in the ocean as a symbol of worship.  When the statue was completed, the King of Devas (heavenly beings) blessed it with ambrosia rain that had the power to cure all medical conditions. Ever since then, this #sacred rain falls every year to cleanse the earth.  People will fill buckets of water with a sacrament and leave them out in the open overnight to ensure the water is sanctified on the eve of Blessed Rainy Day. Astrologers will determine the exact #moment this #auspicious event occurs each year.  Everyone takes a #bath in the #blessed water to prevent diseases, bad #karma, bad luck, and other negative influences.  After they have taken a cleansing and holy bath, Bhutanese then play traditional #sports like #archery or "khuru". This is a dart game played outdoors, in which large darts are hurled at wooden posts.  Blessing Rainy Day marks the beginning of the #new_year in parts of central Bhutan.❤🥰🤗  #holiday #celebration #family #life #lovefamily #happiness #gathering #newbeginning #newstart

Bhutan’s fight against COVID-19 has been successful so far with the lowest death and infection rate worldwide. On the 6th of March 2020, a 76-year-old American tourist who had travelled from India tested positive. This was the first registered case in Bhutan.  Subsequently, the country implemented strict containment measures and closed its borders to all tourists. The handicraft industry, highly dependent on tourism, suffers deeply as most craft makers sell their products to the handicraft shops visited by tourists.  Learn more by reading the blog on it:

#variation in  #patterns 
Just like its biodiversity, the textiles in Bhutan, especially their patterns are very diverse. There are valid reasons for Bhutanese #weavers today to be #Proud proud as they come from a culture that has managed to retain most of the motifs and patterns of the past virtually unaltered. The #art of creating patterns has recently extended from flora patterns to weaving thirty alphabets.
Weaving truly is a deeply rooted #cultural phenomenon, and it is this deep-rooted reverence and appreciation that is vital for not only the survival but also the growth of these patterns. In textile weaving today, we combine ancient motifs with modern patterns to create stunningly #beautiful #textiles. Some are simple but others are intricate, some are combinations. Historically, weavers took inspiration from their natural surroundings and most importantly from religion for their #designs. Still today, they follow it.
In this way, an Art- a combination of culture and tradition with a mix of creativity, and innovation comes into existence. Be a part of it by buying one for yourself.

A #myth against #indigenous and #organic #dyeing
Traditionally, the dyeing process has been kept confidential, passed down from #mother to #daughter, and not usually discussed with outsiders. The locals believe that when outsiders and strangers watch the process, the color will be removed. It is also a #belief that a woman who is pregnant cannot dye #yarn because the baby could remove the #color.
Mysterious and interesting it is, isn’t it?

#the_art_of_dyeing
#Colorful and #bright textiles are typical in Bhutanese designs. The best example can be depicted by the famous clothing ‘Kishuthara’ made with hand-dyed fabrics and yarns. Colors are obtained from plants, vegetables, and animal-based materials that are indigenous and locally available.
They use ingredients like Madder (Tsoe), Turmeric (Yonka), Symplocos Paniculata (Zim), Indigo (Sanja), Lac (Jatsho), Ash(Gothey), and Alum (Do-chur) as ingredients for #dyes. They also make use of wild fruits as binders and locally grown #plants and #fruits as color enhancers. For treating yarns they use ingredients such as Vinegar and  Choemeles Lagenaria (Khomang)- it is dried wild fruit. Other ingredient includes Walnut(Tago) for which the bark and peel of it are used, Onion Peel, Artemisia, Teakwood, Rhododendron Flower, Beetroot, Marigold Flower, and others. 
Naturally dyed #textiles are unique and available on our website. Have a piece of it to beautify your #home.

#12_Steps_of_weaving
A #traditional weaving process involves 12 steps in total. The process used to be longer and more complicated in the past. To begin, #dyes and #fibers were collected, spun, and then dyed. This was followed by the thread being laid out in its preliminary format. The warp was then set up. 
Eventually, the weaver arranged the weft placement called Mam Sham Ni in #Bhutanese. The process of #weaving very complex and detailed #patterns #designs requires a lot of planning and preparation. The process is called Metho Thuni. In horizontal looms, the weave is then arranged once the desired length has been reached. Thag Di Ni is the name given to this step. The finishing touches were added to the ends of the weaving as the second last step, which prevented them from separating. Last but not least, Tha Toh Ni, or cutting the weave from the loom, follows. For Kiras, there was also a final #step to be taken - rep kheyni, which means arranging and trimming the two ends. Normally, the reverse side of the weave was trimmed if the #Kira was patterned. These steps are still prevalent and used by the weavers of Bhutan. End products of these weaving techniques are available for your purchase at our website.

‘ Thagzo’ – The #art of #weaving
The art of weaving is one of the oldest crafts, dating back to the 13th century, and is an integral part of Bhutanese life and culture. It is exclusively practiced by women, but men can help in spinning yak hair and sheep wool into yarn thread. The craft is widely practiced throughout the country though eastern #Bhutan is especially renowned for the quality and complexity of its silks and cotton. 
Bhutanese textiles are admired for their rich vibrant colors, variations of patterns, intricate dyeing, and manual weaving techniques. The textiles are woven from cotton, silk, wool, nettle, or yak hair in striped patterns – vertical for men and horizontal for women. However, each region has a specialty in terms of designs and types.
There are three types of looms that are used by Bhutanese weavers – blackstrap, horizontal-framed, and card loom. The primary type is the back-strap loom which is mostly used by weavers from eastern Bhutan. The horizontal-framed loom and the card loom were introduced into Bhutan from Tibet and are still used today.
#Textiles play an important social role in Bhutan: they are an element of a strict social code and until the late 1950’s served as a form of currency.
Now, don’t you want to keep a 13th Century art with a modern twist for yourself?

#chilies
_Ema Datshi _, directly translating to Chili Cheese is a Bhutanese chili dish. While chili is most often added in other curries as a condiment, Chili is the main ingredient in Ema Datshi and therefore consists of the largest proportion of the curry.
The Bhutanese love for chilies knows no bounds. They (the Bhutanese and chilies) have this love-hate relationship. Despite the sweat, tears, and stomach pain that chilis give them, the Bhutanese can’t give up on chilies. If they’re not having chilies as a main dish (ema datshi), they’ll have chilies as a side dish: as _ezay_ (chili paste or salad), chili pickle, or just fresh green chilies dipped in salt. Chilies might as well be called a staple food for the Bhutanese.
However, aside from its “foodly” functions, chilies do have a spiritual significance to the Bhutanese. Most people in Bhutan still believe that burning chilies will keep evil spirits or demons away.
Don’t you want to know why the Bhutanese love chilies so much? What is it about chilies that the Bhutanese fail to give up on them? Well well, why just wonder when you can actually get the Bhutanese chili experience yourself and learn for yourself. That’s right!
Our store offers you local and organic Bhutanese chilies. Why don’t you get some chilies from our store, go home, follow the ema datshi recipe (youtube link below), and get a first-hand experience of the Bhutanese-chilies relationship!

A tip we’d recommend for first-time ema datshi consumers is to add butter to your ema datshi to make it less spicy. For stomach pain caused by chilies, drink milk.

Holding her Phob (wooden cup) and Dappa in her left hand, Angay (grandmother) Zeko looked elegant while having her lunch.  According to her, the food doesn’t taste as good when the curry is mixed with the rice underneath. Moreover, serving curry in phob looks pleasant, and can make one excited to eat.  Serving rice in Dappa’s (wooden bowl) and curry in separate Phob is a traditional practice in Bhutan. So, if you ever purchase a Dappa for yourself or your loved one, do not forget the phob.

#art_of_bangchung_making
Bjoka gewog(village) is the remotest gewog located in Zhemgang Dzongkhag(District).
Within the gewog, development infrastructures include an RNR center, Beat office, Community Center, farm shop, two health centers, ORCs, primary school, and farm road. 
The villager's livelihood depends on subsidiary farming but for centuries, Bjoka has been renowned for its cane and bamboo handicrafts, particularly Bangchung making. Apart from mangoes and potatoes, it is the primary source of income.  The Art of Bangchung-Making  The people of Bjoka village have perfected the art of bangchung making over the years. Yulay, or small climbing bamboo, is the type of bamboo they use. Yulay bamboo is capable of taking dyes quite easily, which makes it different from all other bamboo types.
Once the bamboos are harvested, they are split into segments according to the size of the bangchung to be woven. After splitting into outer and inner parts, the pieces are dried.
Before dyeing the bamboo slices, they are seasoned for at least three weeks. The first step in dying is to dye it with yellow turmeric. It is used as the primary color and dried. A variety of colors are then added. The art is resonated into a product made with love, care, and respect for centuries-old tradition.
The art is very traditional and unique to Bjoka. Now, don’t you want to preserve this art and keep it for yourself. Buy centuries-old tradition and help Bjoka Villagers to preserve this art for future generations.

The Lunch Box - Bhutan Edition 
In Bhutan, these bamboo boxes called Bangchu are traditionally used as a rice plate and for carrying lunches. Bangchu is made of a special bamboo called yura, which makes the container airtight. It is amazing how nothing spills even when you flip over a bangchu with rice and stew - even our national dish ema datshi, a strew with hot pepper and cheese can’t slip through. 
These natural boxes are a perfect swap to the common plastic and air-tight container.  #PlasticFreeJuly #zerowaste #zeroplastic #plasticfreejuly #sustainable #sustainableliving #counciousliving #ecoliving #greenerfuture # ditchthepplastic #handmade #handwoven #bhutan #weaver # sustainablefiber

Living in a #plasticfree environment also comes from the choice of textiles you are wearing. Synthetic textiles must be chemically treated and release micro plastics during the washing process.
For a safer future, choose natural textile such as linen, cotton or silk , that have been naturally processed and dyed.  All our textiles partners work with noble material such as nettle, cotton and silk to produce exquisite handwoven pieces and we couldn’t be more proud to support them.

At Taste of Bhutan we believe in treading on the earth as lightly as possible so the zero waste movement #PlasticFreeJuly is something we get behind.
This month we will showcase plastic free and reusable items in order to help us all live less wasteful lives. Starting with these aromatic soap bars from @bio.bhutan . Switching your liquid soap to a soap bat is one of the easiest change you can make.

The soaps from Bio Bhutan are hand crafted with 100 % organic skincare ingredients to moisturise, nourish & soften skin. Handmade with a cold pressed soaking method to preserve the active byproduct ‘Glycerin,’ and the benefits of the essential oils.
For the saponification process to complete, the soap bars are kept for a month on shelves and then hand wrapped in locally produced and biodegradable Daphne paper (paper produced from the bark of Daphne plant).  Bio lemongrass ginger bar soap are natural, biodegradable and contain NO harmful ingredients. They are free from chemical foaming agents, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Parabens, artificial or added color, synthetic fragrance and preservative, and no animal testing.  #PlasticFreeJuly #zerowaste #zeroplastic #handmade #organic #hadmadesoap #organicsoap #artisansoap #skincare #coldpressedsoap #greenskin #ditchtheplastic

In Bhutan, art remains an essential part of daily life that retains the purity and handcraft of ancient times. For the Bhutanese people, each piece they create represents a religious experience, a connection with something that goes beyond them and enlighten them creatively. As such mandala hold a special position in Bhutan.
A Traditional Buddhist mandala is very detailed, and each detail bears a deep meaning.  A Mandala can be seen as the ‘world of existence’ or celestial residence in which the meditational deity resides. It is the visual expression of the highest level of consciousness, the ultimate state of enlightenment, which is the goal of the spiritual path in the Buddhist tradition.
Some mandalas are paintings or scrolls and are meant to be permanent while others are made of sand, and will be destroyed before being disperse in a body of water. Scrolls can be carried along when traveling, so the Gods are never left at home.  #mandala #thangka #mandalapainting #buddhistart #buddhism #bhutan #traditionalart #mandalascrolls #bhutanart #buddhistmandala #religiousart #monk #enlightment

The traditional art of incense making has been an important Bhutanese craft for many hundreds of years. The purity of this ancient tradition and the ability to harvest only the finest plant based medicinal ingredients has made Bhutanese incense the most sought after of all the Himalayan incenses. Bhutanese incense is primarily used for ritual smoke offerings in Tibetan Buddhist practice, however, it is also widely used and prescribed for healing, removing unwanted energies (space clearing) and for bringing about a unique herbal-wood-spice fragrance to a room or surrounding environment.
Sang powder incenses are boosted with amazing plants and resins to clear away the bad, invite the good and bring the energy level up.  #incense #powderincense  #looseincense #cleansingincense #sangpowder #cleansing #incensemaker #cleansingincense #nadopoizokhang #madeinbhutan #handmade #handmadeincense #bhutanincense #productofbhutan #bhutan #ritualitems #spirituality #dharmapractice #buddhism #offerings

In Bhutan, prayer flags are hung to bring blessings for peace, wisdom, strength and compassion. They are typically raised outside homes, hung on bridges, hilltops and places of spiritual importance (like on the picture).
It is believed that when the wind blows, the blessing are carried through the air touching all sentient beings.
Traditionally, prayer flags are printed on wooden block that have been hand carved using ink made from a mixture of fire ash and Are rice wine.  #prayerflag #prayerflags #dochulapass #bhutan #madeinbhutan #blessings
