Our June Theme: The Sun

Anne Alloway

Posted on June 15 2017

This month we want to you relish the sun. That said, it’s common knowledge that too much direct exposure to the sun’s rays can be harmful to our health. Finding the right balance is key. Most people only need a few minutes in the sun to start taking advantage of the benefits; but you should always be careful not to let the skin burn.


The most clear-cut correlation between sunlight and sexual health is its role in vitamin D. Sunlight helps our bodies convert a substance in our skin called 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency can cause low estrogen in women, which means low sex drive. It also causes low testosterone in men. So if you tend to feel more frisky during the summer than the winter, there’s a very good reason for it – increased vitamin D causes your hormones, and your libido, to peak during the sunny summer months! Vitamin D also has many other health implications outside of libido - but we are trying to stay on topic here!


Sunlight also increases levels of serotonin, which helps balance your mood and promotes feelings of happiness. Sun exposure is said to alleviate symptoms of depression, and when combined with exercise the mood boosting effects of sunlight are especially potent. We don't need a doctor to tell us that sunshine feels good and makes us happy - we are creatures of the earth! And like every other one of earth's creatures - the sun sustains us with her warmth and light. Take some time to relish her this month, and in turn relish your own sexy wellbeing!


The sun- so fundamental to our existence on earth, and yet our lives are so often constructed to avoid it, even fear it. Not this month - your Heart + Honey box is all about embracing the warmth and vitality that the sun bestows on us. Taking precautions to prevent our skin from burning, this month we seek out the sun….

Firstly you will find a glamorous pair of sunnies. Oversized, elegant, and rife with character. Pull these babies out of their playful floral case and prepare for a rendezvous with the brightest star we know. (Not to burden anyone with our love for practicality, but the glasses case is also sized to carry a phone - in the event you need a case for your lifeline also).

Secondly - We are trying not to get too obnoxiously excited here, But how beautiful is this? A Wristicuffs exclusive for Heart + Honey.

Wear Sunstone to feel alive and enthusiastic. It increases vitality and is beneficial in maintaining high energy throughout the day. White agate has powerful metaphysical properties also - eliminating and transforming negative energies. Overall - this sunny and beautiful bracelet compliments you in every way - on the physical plane and others!
