Nothing beats a walk in the park or a refreshing run in the great outdoors. Studies show that elements of nature such as bird song, trees, water etc. have healing powers and physiological benefits for the human body. Can you imagine how we would breathe without the trees which absorb our CO2 while giving us 02 (remember Natural Science class)? Well, Sunlight is going back to the natural source and bringing nature into our homes, with its new range of Sunlight Extra dish washing liquid.
Pat onBrands was invited to spend the morning at the launch of the new Sunlight Extra. The event was attended by our media faves like Letshego Zulu and Azania Mosaka among others. The day started with a yoga session, which reminded us to be mindful of nature because we ought to work together with nature as it is part of our lives. Dr Ela Manga spoke about the healing power of nature, encouraging us to tap into nature and be mindful of our environment. Esteemed interior designer Nthabi Taukubong told her story about how she incorporates nature into her client’s homes because that is where they should find peace and relaxation. With a lot of people trying to make the right food choices, nutritional coach Mpho Tshukudu gave us a few tips on how to connect to nature through food and they are:
• Eat barefoot
• Eat with your hands or a wooden spoon
• Eat outside when possible
• Take a 10 minute walk after a meal
The highlight of the day was when we made our own scrubs using various ingredients like basil, rose petals, lemon, aloe, rosemary and other plants. The scrubs were then used for a pampering hand massage, which left our hands soft and smelling great. The nature inspired experience reminded us to be mindful of nature, connect to nature and to be inspired by nature in our daily lives.
The new Sunlight Extra range, which is inspired by nature and consists of two variants; Nature (which is gentle on the hands) and Antibacterial (which kills 99.9% of germs). The Nature range boasts of natural ingredients like real lemon juice, mineral salt and aloe vera, which is gentle on the hands and has a gentle fragrance. The Antibacterial range includes real lemon juice and mint, with 99.9% germ kill, so there will be no germs spreading with this product in your home. The power of this range was demonstrated using a real-life home situation of grease in cold water and all that could be said was “wow, it’s like magic!”
A Natural Pat on Sunlight for reminding us to appreciate nature and all its benefits, letting us know that “nature knows best” and challenging us to always be mindful and make an effort to connect with nature. So take on the challenge, take daily walks, go hiking, breathe more, disconnect from technology and connect with nature and be inspired by nature.
