For a majority of my adult life, striving for minimalism has been a priority. This is not only due to a desire to consume and possess less, but to assist in finding solace, promoting what I valued the most while removing what distracted me from it. From the physical environments where I reside and their respective functional, yet paired down design elements, to the simplicity and timelessness with which I dress, the minimalist style has lent a sense of calm and structure. It feels authentically grounding. It wasn't until I moved to Boulder in 1995 and met Ken Furakowa, a Japanese American raised in Hawaii that I was asked how I applied the practice of minimalism to my own physical mind and body. At the time I knew nothing of organic vs. processed, natural vs. artificial or the medley of other descriptors like non-toxic, cruelty-free or the like. I was eager to learn though and Ken shared his wisdom while summarizing his belief system in one clean, resonating statement. “I simply try to live my life the way my grandparents did in Hawaii before the war,” he said, “ before the chemical companies began invading all aspects of our lives, particularly with food and personal care products.”
This short exchange with Ken changed me forever.
Today I am sharing an offer for all of you to try the essentials kit from Akamai for a drastically reduced price. The intention here is to help people break free from the mainstream personal care paradigm that promotes too many products, chemicals and complexity—at a high cost to both our health, the environment and our spending habits. I’ve been happily using the 3-1 bar, mineral toothpaste and skin fuel for months and am not only liberated by the simplicity and effectiveness of the products, but honestly, I just feel I’m making the best choices for my mind, body and spirit.
Just give it a try and decide for yourself.
