1What’s the difference between buying this set and buying them separately?
While the product is the same, with this set, you will get half the size of our normal No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash, Mung Bean Powder and Jasmine Rice Face Mask so you can try mixing it all up and use them together. On top of that, we also include a small mini luffa and a cute cotton bag for you as well.
2Why do you call it No-Poo?
The principle behind No-Poo is to try to cut down chemical use in daily life. As an avid follower of the No-Poo Method, we believe that in order to truly live with Mother Earth, we need to avoid synthetic chemicals not only because it is harmful to our body, but it is also harmful to Mother Earth through the run-offs.

4How to use these products based on Elemental Medicine?
To dig deep into elemental medicine, it can take a long time. But here's the gist.
Each of our prodducts represent different elemental energetics.
Rice Powder = Nourishing Water and cooling Earth
Mung Bean Powder = Soft Wind + Gentle Earth
No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash = Warming Water and Steady Fire
To use these products, you need to know what problems and constitution you are dealing with in what context. By feeling your body, you will be able to observe a general trend of the state of the body. Whether it is hot/cool/moist/dry/relaxed/tightened.
Then, you can rebalance your body state by using our products accordingly.
For example, if you are hot and heaty, you will need something more cooling.
If you feel dry and stiff, you will need more moist.
To put this in perspective, let's quickly look at a case of those with oily skin which has an affinity to Fire element. After a workout, his/her body may feel hot and sticky due to sweat and dead skin cells.
To rebalance this, you can first apply the Mung Bean Powder which has an affinity to Earth and Air elements. As it gently scrubs away the dead skin cells the drying Air element also absorbs the excess moist and sweat.
With a combination of water and fire element, the No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash is not only great at cleaning your body/hair but it also adds the moisture back to your skin/hair at the same time.
And if he/she still feels hot afterwards especially where the skin is exposed to the sun, they can use the cooling Jasmine Rice Mask to help tame down the heat.
Meanwhile, you can adjust how much of each product you want to use by diluting it with water, or apply it together with other things like the drying lime juice or nourishing yogurt depending on your liking.
With this simple frame work, you will be able to reconnect with your body and deeping your understanding of how to work with Mother Nature at the same time.
