About the Blend 

Radiant Glow was formulated to help you go about your day with  a more radiant and glowing complexion! This light and fragrant blend provides nourishment for your skin through improved gut and heart health. A healthy gut (comprising stomach and intestines) assists the absorption of nutrients and is a key building block to having radiant and glowing complexion. Vitamins, in particular, help generate collagen and other proteins to provide the skin with increased elasticity. The gut also contributes to the removal of toxins gathered from food, thereby preventing the effects of toxins showing up on the skin, which would otherwise lead to blemishes, acne or even sagging among other signs of skin aging.

Pandan Leaves, Red Dates and Yarrow Flowers help to support your digestive system in tandem. Pandan Leaves are traditionally used as a mild
