Spruce up this month of love with "bedroom" tonic and aphrodisiac superfood!
Let's face it. Modern living makes us want more adoration, appreciation and love.
Our current life pace is too fast that sometimes we feel unseen or unheard and stuck. At a click of a button, we have an unlimited flow of information and entertainment. We excessively feed ourselves with stimulants - caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes - while overthinking and worrying about work-life balance and personal targets. Add anxiety and emotional traumas: lost of job, loss of loved ones, lost opportunities, the list goes on.. especially in the past 2 years of the pandemic.
Where do we begin?
The simplest one: SELF-LOVE. Before we take care of another, start with yourself. Let these adaptogens and superfoods — available in Singapore through our online Australian grocery store — help you cultivate your spirit and mind.
