The Minutiae of Healing
Wear, Drink And Live ‘Clean’
by Alison McEvoy
Agata Borkowska recreated her lifestyle nine years ago, and today, she invites you to do the same. The essence of Agata’s message is that while we can begin with food and physical exercise to change our lives….we must then go deeper. What we use on our bodies, the utensils we cook with, the type of water we drink: these choices impact our health in small ways that all add up.
Agata has handmade and sourced a variety of beautiful, curiously interesting and “one-of-a-kind” products which you can drink from, or put on your body, safe in the knowledge that you are amplifying your health and well-being.
She handmakes many of these products herself. Take her current favourite, the Sweet Orange Moisturiser. It contains just 3 ingredients; beeswax, almond oil and sweet orange essential oil. This is sweet simplicity at its best.
Agata’s donkey milk products sparked my attention immediately. Her use of donkey milk echoes back to a time when the donkey was acknowledged and prized for the healing properties of its milk. Indeed, women were fabled to take donkey milk baths to maintain the softness and pristineness of their skin.
My personal top pick from her collection is the Vital Water Caraf with the Flower of Life (FOL) symbol emboldened on the bottom of the carafe. It is a work of art. Water stored in the carafe is re-energised and revitalised through the effects of the gold and FOL symbol present on its base.
