A Favourite Summer Salad

A Favourite Summer Salad,
If you like sun-dried tomatoes and olives you will love this. Using kale breaks away from using traditional lettuce and the  kumara is sweet and crispy. Avocado (or guacamole) is also a nice addition and gives a lovely texture on the side to this salad.


Kale Salad







1 large kumara, peeled or well scrubbed
2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil
salt and pepper
200g kale, coarse ribs removed
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoons BESTOW BEAUTY OIL
juice of 1/2 lemon
100g sundried tomatoes in oil (drained weight) finely chopped
100g pitted black olives, finely chopped
100g pine nuts

Preheat the oven to 200deg C fan bake
Cut the kumara into cubes, place onto a roasting tray with either the ghee or coconut oil, salt and pepper. Bake 45 mins or until crispy.
Add the kale to a food processor and pulse a few times to break it down into little pieces. Tip it into a large salad bowl with BESTOW BEAUTY OIL, vinegar, salt and pepper, the lemon juice, sun-dried tomatoes and olives. Toss the salad well so all the ingredients are evenly coated in the dressing.
When the kumara chunks are cooked remove from the oven and stir them through the salad.
Finally, heat a frying pan over a medium heat and dry-fry the pine nuts for a few minutes or until golden brown. (Watch carefully when cooking these as they burn easily.) Remove from the heat and sprinkle on to the salad.

This tastes delicious warm or cold.

Having radiant skin, healthy hair and strong nails is important for your wedding day and your beauty therapist is one of the best people to help you achieve this with the products and treatments she has available at her fingertips.

But another thing you need to consider is what is happening from the inside? As you know, your skin, hair and nails are all created, nourished and renewed from the inside. So this means you are able to improve their appearance by working from within – if you know the secrets to achieving this.

Bestow Beauty is an intensive range of internal cosmetics that make use of will help you look fabulous on your wedding day.

  • A great-tasting, edible oil that is mixed or poured over your food to nourish your skin, hair and nails from the inside
  • Keeps your skin supple and smooth
  • Helps prevent blockages and ‘breakouts’
  • Ensures your skin’s oil is healing and anti-inflammatory
  • Helps reduce redness in inflamed skin

Your edible cosmetic

Bestow Be Cleansed is a natural detox powder designed to bestow a clearer, more radiant complexion by encouraging the liver and bowel to (gently) eliminate toxins.

What Is Your Zinc Status?

What is your zinc status?

Zinc is an important mineral that plays a crucial part in skin health and preventing premature skin ageing.  It is vital that we address our zinc levels because even moderate deficiencies in zinc cause wrinkling and stretch marks. Statistics tell us that 1 in 4 New Zealanders are zinc deficient, however when testing clients we have found 9 out of 10 have some level of deficiency. A zinc test is a quick and easy taste test you can do that will give an indication of your zinc status in just 10 seconds. Our new supplement Bestow Beauty from Beneath is an ideal way to correct this over time as it contains high levels of zinc in two different forms for maximum absorption.

Why Treat Your Skin From Within



There are many things that we eat and drink that can contribute to the problems we can experience with our skin. Being aware of these problem foods can go a long way to helping correct these issues. Some of these problems foods are obvious like alcohol. You just need observe what happens to someone with fine, fair, sensitive skin who drinks wine to know that it is inflammatory and could make skin redness worse. But there are lots of other ‘hidden’ foods that could be ‘fueling’ the problems you may be experiencing with your skin.

However more and more of our commonly eaten foods are managing to find their way onto the growing list of foods that contain phyto-chemicals that keep our skin looking beautiful.

When it comes to nutrition, out of all the foods researched for skin benefits the Essential Fatty Acids appear to be the ‘stars’ offering assistance in the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions as well as generally improving skin’s hydration and beauty.

Essential fatty acids are a wonderful food for skin. They are your edible cosmetics, making your skin soft, smooth and velvety. This is why the first product I ever formulated was the Bestow Beauty Oil. It is your ‘moisturiser from the inside’, reducing inflammation and redness, while keeping your skin smooth and free of blockages.

The Bestow Within – Natural Food Journal is packed full of recipes that supply essential fatty acids and other nutrients to bestow you with beautiful, radiant skin…

Dry Body Brushing

giveaway-springDRY BODY BRUSHING

Dry skin brushing is a wonderful detoxification aid as your skin is your body’s largest eliminative organ and is responsible for one quarter of the body’s detoxification each day (that’s why it’s also known as our third kidney). If you dry brush regularly your skin will be noticeably smoother with an improvement in colour, texture and clarity and you can improve conditions such as cellulite and water retention.

Dry skin brushing stimulates your circulation, boosting the blood flow that delivers oxygen and other nutrients to the skin, and helping the skin appear more radiant and glowing and warm to touch. Dry skin brushing also stimulates the flow of lymphatic vessels, indirectly aiding the immune function and improving lymphatic drainage throughout the body.

With our current Bestow Be Cleansed promotion you receive a FREE Bestow Dry Skin Brush with every purchase until the end of October.

Bestow Be Cleansed


Your skin tends to reflect what’s happening on the inside. If your body isn’t eliminating toxins efficiently, this can result in dull, devitalised skin, and can contribute to many skin disorders such as acne, blemishes and eczema.

Bestow Be Cleansed is designed to bestow a clearer, more radiant complexion through the detoxification of the bowel and liver and the gentle elimination of toxins.

It works in four ways –

  • It is a wonderful source of both soluble fibre (draws out toxins) and insoluble fibre (encourages peristalsis and elimination)
  • The slippery elm, liquorice and L Glutamine assist with repairs to the gut lining
  • Many of the ingredients in Bestow Be Cleansed support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the bowel
  • High in nutrients that support the healthy functioning of the liver
  • Adding your Bestow Beauty Oil to your detox programme greatly enhances the benefits of the Bestow Be Cleansed powder by making our cell membranes more permeable (nutrients get in and wastes get out of the cell) and unblocking the five channels of elimination from the liver.
