Buddha Teas 4th Heart Chakra Tea

Buddha Teas 4th Heart Chakra Tea

While I do not often talk about tea on Logical Harmony, drinking tea is a very important part of my daily life. I first got into tea when working at a high-end tea shop several years ago. As I learned more about the different kinds of teas and tried more of them, I definitely could tell that different blends have an impact on our bodies and minds. Even just the act of sipping a warm cup of tea can be a very relaxing and soothing ritual.

When Buddha Teas offered to send me some tea to try out, I was very interested in their Chakra Teas. This line is very unique. As described by Buddha Teas, “The word ‘chakra’ is an ancient Sanskirt term that refers to the centers of energy that are believed to be present in our physical bodies and our consciousness. The concept of the seven chakras also represents the interconnection of our bodies, thoughts, ideas, actions, and emotions. Here we present you with a line of chakra teas that have been thoughtfully represented by the herbs and elements that compliment each individual chakra.

Taiwan May Be the Next Country to End Cosmetics Animal Testing

Taiwan May Be the Next Country to End Cosmetics Animal Testing


This morning some exciting news was announced by Humane Society International – there may soon be changes to the Taiwan animal testing laws! This is an exciting change because, if passed, this would make Taiwan the first country in its region to ban cosmetics animal testing.

What is being proposed is a chance to the Control for Cosmetic Hygiene Act in Taiwan. This proposed change would ban the sale of cosmetics that have been newly tested on animals. This bill also states that this is regardless of the state of alternative tests. If passed, companies would have a three year grace period to comply. If passed, this change in Taiwan would have a greater impact than the recent ban on cosmetics testing in South Korea.

This proposed change already has the support of 19 legistators and 23 cosmetics companies. A recent poll shows that nearly 70% of Taiwan residents would like to see cosmetics animal testing banned. It is amazing to see changes like this happening worldwide! I had to share this update from Humane Society International with the readers of Logical Harmony.
