Episode 24: What’s in the Cup + On My Mind: Beauty Catch Up, Should Healing Be Trademarked & Experience with Zach Bush’s Restore Supplement

A seemingly disparate set of things I wanted to get in to today. I often get asked what “results” I’ve experienced from taking Zach Bush’s Restore gut health supplement, and I wanted to respond to this extensively since the answer is holistic and complex. Next, I had a situation come up around the sharing I did of Dien Chan Zone ™ Facial Reflexology recently, and it brought up some larger thinking around what it means to trademark health and healing. I refer to the example of the recent legislation ruling against trademarking “fire cider” which had made big waves in the herbal community over the past several years. And then lastly, we end with beauty chat (of course). There are some new beautiful things to gush over (Earthwise Beauty facial steam, Aether Beauty Joshua Tree Palette) and some updates on other things (Odacité shampoo bar, Live Botanical Cleansing Oil). And a quick addendum to what I discussed about the title – I mistakenly referenced the “On the table/in the cup…” series coming from the Cup of Jo blog, but it actually came linked from a blog called A Sweet Spoonful, and the series is called the Sunday Window series on the Leela Cyd blog.
