What is so special about ojon oil?
For starters, it’s been used by Central-American rainforest communities for 500+ years and is still extracted using time-honored traditions. The extract has remarkable effects on hair, sealing the cuticle for optimal radiance and extraordinary shine and is rich in Vitamin E, which promotes cell growth of hair follicles and results in stronger, softer, more manageable hair.
As if that weren’t enough, it’s also environmentally sustainable and supports the local communities harvesting the oil.
Are you ready for Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead?
Often mis-categorized as ‘Mexican Halloween’, this vibrant Central American holiday has been around since before Spanish colonization and used to take place at the beginning of summer. Traditionally families build private altars to honor their deceased relatives using Aztec marigolds and other offerings. We adore the visual landscape of Día de los Muertos with its explosions of bright pink and orange paper flags and ornately decorated papel picado skeletons.
Very proud to source our amazing ojon oil from that part of the world, where culture and traditions are preserved and revered.
Wondering what to do with an extra 25K burning a hole in your pocket (aren’t we all)? Why not blow it in a single afternoon on a spa treatment?!

It’s pumpkin season!
Try this simple DIY pumpkin hair mask to nourish and condition your locks: Heat equal parts pumpkin meat and coconut oil over a low flame, let cool and apply to wet hair from the roots to the tips. Then wrap hair in a warm towel and let sit for 20 minutes.
Finally, wash mask out with T’zikal Deep Hydrating Shampoo and seal the deal with T’zikal Deep Moisturizing Conditioning Cream. Voila, radiant fall locks.
It was Marie Antoinette who is credited with popularizing the nighttime ‘hand mask’ routine – she would layer thick moisturizers and put on a pair of gloves before going to bed, then wake up with silky-soft hands.
As we roll into the winter months, give those most-important appendages some extra love with T’zikal’s Hand Rescue Project, a set of ojon oil-infused super moisturizers in two weights (gloves not included). Link in bio https://bit.ly/2PDWLx2
Antigua, Guatemala is a charming town surrounded by volcanoes where Mayan culture mixes with Spanish colonial history.
The (once uneasy) marriage makes for a fascinating and delicious place to visit. And the spectacular textiles of the region are a can’t-miss attraction, best ogled at the Museo Casa del Tejido that also doubles as a market and workshop (hello, décor souvenirs). @museocasadeltejidoantiguo

Do you sleep well?
You are not alone! (Unless you said yes). In our overstressed, sleep-deprived culture it’s no surprise that sleep therapy getaways are an actual thing. The SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain @shawellness offers a comprehensive range of treatments (acupuncture, reflexology, personalized diet, exercise and health plan) to help you recover from temporary or chronic sleep disorders.
How do you keep your sleep hygiene on track?
Are you still not using hair oil?
If you need convincing, consider the historical precedent. The use of oil in hair care is an ancient tradition shared by many cultures. The Maya of Central America discovered the replenishing benefits of Ojon oil over 500 years ago.
If you’re still on the fence, here are 5 reasons to jump on the oily bandwagon. Link in bio https://bit.ly/2QN9q0C
Omegas, especially 3s, 6s and 7s, are vital to maintain hair health as you age. How can you get more in your diet?
Easiest answer: flaxseed oil. And you don’t have to overthink how you should incorporate this ingredient. Simply add it to your almond butter, hummus or salad dressing. One thing to keep in mind: don’t use flaxseed oil cooking, the heat changes the impact of the healthy fats it contains.
And, it goes without saying (but we will anyway), make sure you’re using product on your hair that harnesses natural oils like our ojon oil-infused Shampoo and Conditioner, link in bio https://bit.ly/2KPocAM

It seems like everyone is rediscovering the Greek Islands, these days. Have you?
We’re already day dreaming about a mid-fall wellness reboot at the Caveland Hostel in Santorini @cave_land. It’s nestled in an 18th century winery surrounded by gardens. When you’re not imbibing local wine and olive oil while gazing out over one of the world’s most stunning waterscapes, take in a yoga class (or 10) on the hostel’s terrace.
Best part? Accommodations start at $18/ night. Yup. Where do you reboot? Tell us where you go to get your mojo back.

What’s your favorite thing about fall?
Changing leaves, a new crispness in the air, the smell of sharpened pencils… Fall is an opportunity to regroup, refocus and get organized.
