SuperFeast’s Beauty Blend was crafted through the enquiry of what beauty truly is. Instead of a superficial projection, beauty should be something that is felt. By nourishing yourself from within, vitality will show externally through healthy hair, skin and nails. In Eastern philosophy the belief is, while there is stagnation or depletion in the body, physical vibrancy naturally diminishes.
The ingredients in Beauty Blend collectively offer deep nourishment to the Yin Jing Essence of the body, supporting the function of the Kidneys, Spleen, Heart and Lungs. This allows the body’s foundational energy stores to accumulate, resulting in robust physical health and a glow that will shine through the skin.
Beauty Blend is a sum of its potent parts. The four ingredients (schisandra, goji, longan and pearl) work synergistically to nourish the Liver, cleanse and build the Blood, replenish Yin Essence and promote deep detoxification.
The high antioxidant content of the herbs in this carefully crafted blend act to preserve the protein structures of the skin (collagen and elastin), supplying the potent mineral and phytonutrient nutrition the body requires to rebuild and preserve itself.
“After all true beauty doesn’t come from makeup, rather it is a portrayal of the internal health of the organs. When ones organs are youthful, clean and buoyant, their external representation will personify this”
Lets take a look at each of the ingredients..
The little red wonder berry! The ancients believed those who use schisandra consistently, remain youthful, both in appearance and physiology; in fact if taken for 100 days consecutively, Schisandra is believed to purify the Blood, bring sharpness to the mind, optimise memory, rejuvenate and astringe Kidney Essence, encouraging healthy sexual function in both men and women. Working to illuminate inner radiance and allow the glow of beauty to surface via the skin.
Schisandra translates to "five taste fruit", a name that illustrates the herbs capacity to influence the five Yin organs of the body; the Liver, Lungs, Kidneys, Heart and Spleen. This bright red berry is adaptogenic, an immune tonic, antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective
A renowned superfood berry, Goji are a small but mighty powerhouse. Used throughout Asia as a potent longevity herb and Blood tonic, to assist the cultivation of Yin Jing, bring strength and vigour to the legs, bring brightness to the eyes and improve vision. As a sexual tonic for both men and women this berry wonder potentiates the sexual fluids, enhancing fertility. OH LALA.
Traditionally used to fortify the entire system, goji is believed to protect against disease and provide the energy needed to overcome obstacles.
Goji is also said to promote a cheerful spirit. For centuries, the ancient Daoists have used goji to replenish their 'vital essence'; in fact the berry is honoured by local farmers in a two week festival! A cheerful woman statue symbolises the joyful state that the humble goji may bestow upon you.
"Beauty comes from within, it is not a hypothetical concept, but an actual manifestation and expression."
The longan berry is a powerful Qi tonic used to tone the Blood, increase physical stamina, nourish the heart, rebuild energy, and add lustre and radiance to the skin.
Longan is celebrated as a potent sexual tonic for both men and women. The herb is believed to promote peripheral circulation to the hands and feet and bring a deep sense of calm to the entire body system. Longan helps to potentiate the action of other Blood building herbs, helping to deepen feelings of tranquillity when combined with Shen tonics.
Believe it or not, the gorgeous pearl is classified as a herb (a tonic one at that). Beauty Blend uses micro-ground pearl which is super super fine. Pearl offers many a benefit to the skin- extremely high in skin loving antioxidants and minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron. This beautifying tonic has the ability to pacify Heat in the Liver, treat facial acne, reduce heat and redness in the face, stiffness in the neck and shoulders, and to brighten the eyes.
Pearl is also considered a powerful Shen tonic, meaning the herb may help relieve uneasiness in the heart and mind. Consistent use of pearl is said to help one harness and maintain energy and vitality while remaining in a tranquil state. ahh bliss.

Now you're armed with a little more insight, how could you not want a little sprinkling of this magical beautifying tonic in your daily brew.
Remember- consistency is key. Tonic herbs do not force the body to change, but rather work with it to adapt, allowing a measured, nourishing and normalising effect to unfold within the body and its systems. And this takes time and daily consumption.
Simply stir into your hot drinks, smoothies, broths or meals- 1/4-1/2 tsp a day
Go forth, and shine from within.
