Aaah festival season, our favourite time of the year. The season is fast approaching and it is time to start putting your festival survival gear together. Time to book the tickets and make preparations. What with so many festivals around the UK and around the globe, it can be hard to choose which to go to.
Ooh yes – it is true – Spring has indeed sprung. Ah so it’s that time of the year again when the flowers are blooming, the days are getting longer and there are baby animals everywhere. It is not spring unless you have seen some cute baby lambs about! You would of course have to pass them on the road side as I don’t think lambs have a habit of popping out and about the town! Not that I have seen anyways….

We go nuts for hippy dresses here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing – well I do because I wear them but Sy, perhaps not so much. Don’t get me wrong he likes them but just doesn’t wear them as often as I do 😉
When people think of hippies they often think of women first and foremost. When that image of a hippy chick comes into their heads, what are they usually wearing? More often than not it is a beautiful long and flowing dress. Bright in colour and bold in pattern, what’s not to love!

It is well known that hippy’s love all things nature and love to find ways to help sustain the health of the earth – There are many ways in which we can help and one of my absolute favourites is beekeeping.
Many people don’t actually realise just how important honey bees are and why we really really need to do all we can to help the species survive. The main thing that the little beauties do to help us meagre humans survive in this world is pollination.
Many of us hippy’s just love the idea of being able to make our own hippy herbal home remedies. There is something very satisfying about being able to say, “I made that and it made me feel better”. Although they like the idea, many don’t usually bother as they think that it is going to be really hard work or really expensive. The fact is that making your own is neither.
There is just something about the word snood that screams warmth and cosiness. Team that with an actual hippy snood and oh my goodness, heaven!! I have to say, here at hippy HQ we are loving our snoods right now – they really are so warm and are stopping up from becoming icicles in the warehouse this winter.
Homeopathy gets labelled as the hippy medicine. I don’t have an issue with this however, those who see it that way just don’t know enough about it. It is a suitable form of treatment for all and for the majority of all illnesses and ailments. It is a safe, gentle and very natural system that helps to heal the body, relieve symptoms and improve overall health. Homeopathy is the 2nd most popular form of medicine in the world. A more natural and less invasive way of treatment. Having been around for more than 200 years it really is a great holistic remedy.
Created in 1796 by Samuel Hahenmann as a form of alternative medicine, he based homeopathy on the principal of “like treats like”. This is the belief that using a using a substance that is capable of causing symptoms can be used in smaller does to actually cure symptoms.
Hippy health and well being should be at the forefront of our minds. We all know how important it is to ensure that we are all healthy and well in both body and mind. It is hey to a long and happy life that we are well in both areas as a healthy body but unsettled mind is not a good combination, nor is a healthy mind but unwell body – there are of course exceptions however, where these things are under our control they go hand in hand and should both be thought of as equally important.
