January is a time for renewal, and this year I’m finding myself looking forward to taking care of my health and wellness in all new ways. In true Nordic fashion, I’ve taken it upon myself to hit the sauna a bit more this winter alongside participating in Dry January—I’ll be reaching for mocktails instead of cocktails. In this wellness journey, you may also find me swapping out a few of my skin care products for more natural ones or reading ingredient lists up and down.
In this January/February issue of Maple Grove Magazine, we’re taking on the themes of beauty and fashion. First, Jordan Sahly shares how he connected with his Eastern Shoshone heritage through the Indigenous practice of beadwork. View a couple of Sahly’s handmade creations while reading about how he’s tackling this new skillset. Then, writer Jody Carey talks to Bruna Valente about her personal wellness journey and how it led her to creating her beauty and skin care business, Terrain Brazilian Botanicals.
Next, we dive into the topic of wellness. If you’ve chosen to tackle Dry January—like I have—or if you’re looking for something new to sip on, I recommend you check out our story, where writer Mollee Francisco connects with Crystal Selchow, owner of The Rare Daisy, who shares the recipe to success in her company selling spices and herbs, mocktail syrups, rim salts and sugars, infusion kits and more.
