Miöja’s June newsletter is The Winter Issue in which we focus on the best products and practices for moving through a slower season. We introduce you to Ethical Living Magazine, a good tool for living a kinder, more conscious life and our cover girl, Trace Van Wijk, whose brightness and bravery are just beautiful. Make Miöja’s own recipe for Chai Tea, and give yourself some warmth to cushion you against the cold.
Be well this winter by taking a holistic approach to your health. To maintain our balance as we move into colder weather and shorter days, it helps to look at making seasonal changes to what we eat, the way we exercise and our self care routine.

Miöja was one of six SA natural skincare brands to contribute to The Glam Green Girl’s Autumn Care series. Visit her blog here for down to earth ways to get your life a little greener while keeping it gorgeously glam.
Miöja made an appearance in June’s edition of Ethical Living Magazine (view it here). A fine accolade, as this publication is dedicated to researching the ethics and impact of consumer goods available in South Africa so that you can make informed choices about where you spend your cash. In our times, when green-washing is rife and some fairly flimsy claims to eco friendliness are made, it pays to have someone looking out for you.
Every month, the editors collate data from at least 10 companies that offer a commonly used product (this month Vitamin C supplements), and present it in chart form. Scores are given in a wide range of categories, which include each brand’s contribution to climate change and pollution and their policies regarding human rights and animal testing.
With its in-depth and carefully researched articles, this is definitely a magazine with a conscience. Visit Ethical Living online here, or buy a copy at Exclusives or CNA.
