My hometown of Carlsbad in the winter

We’ve been talking a lot lately about winter weather and it’s effects on our skin and it has really got me thinking about the winters where I’m from. I grew-up outside of Carlsbad (Karlovy Vary), one of the most beautiful of the centuries old European spa cities in Czech Republic, surrounded by picturesque mountains Krusne Hory, that form the border between the Czech Republic and Germany. This is a region with cold, harsh winters and like many other places, it can be a major pain in the neck. As a kid, the real fun was when there were school cancellations on freezing snowy days when we could escape to play on the mountain….skiing, ice skating, playing ice hockey, cross country skiing – this is where I developed an great love of sports. But one of the best parts of winter there was Christmas, a dreamy, snowy, ideal white Christmas, which I have to admit, I miss here and always will…there is just no real Christmas without snow for me!

March Product Spotlight

March 13, 2014 | Leave a comment

March product spotlight – SUGAR BODY SCRUBS

  • Based on coconut oil
  • Fine sugar crystals for gentle yet effective exfoliation
  • Fine crystals was a conscious choice because we can use this scrub on frequent and regular base without hurting/scratching the top layer of the skin….. large crystals in scrubs are scratching the top layer of the skin creating microscopic tears in epidermis leading to possible skin infections and aging of the skin. Natura Culina prefers small/fine crystals for full body exfoliation.

Look Like A Queen

February 25, 2014 | Leave a comment



Some historians claim that Cleopatra’s secret to supple skin and youthful glow was bathing regularly in the milk of donkeys.

The blistering sun and windswept sands of ancient Egypt caused dry skin, burns and infections for its people. Because of this, skin care was an important regimen for the Egyptians.

Body oils were so central to their well-being that workers actually received them as part of their wages. Both men and women used moisturizers on their skin to protect it from the arid climate. Sometimes people used honey on their skin — both for the fragrance and its ability to hydrate. Additionally, evidence shows that women sometimes used oil to remove stretch marks after pregnancy.

February Pantry Item of the Month

February 19, 2014 | Leave a comment

This month we highlighting a favorite new product for many of our regular clients:



What’s not to like? We all know there are many benefits of caffeine when applied topically to our skin…firming, tightening, reducing the appearance of cellulite, whew that’s a hard working ingredient! Now imagine your soap is made of freshly roasted and caffeinated coffee and natures super oils like olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter (we’ve talked a lot about the benefits of shea!), cocoa butter and THEN blend in minty lavender and vanilla. Sounds like the perfect way to start the morning, doesn’t it?
