Aside from appearances in The Steve Miller Band and Justin Bieber songs, and in some of America’s favorite desserts, peaches are also renowned for their health benefits. More specifically, peaches are high in vitamin A, and contain iron, potassium and more nutrients that are essential for a healthy diet. For example, according to Rutgers University, “fresh peaches are a moderate source of antioxidants and vitamin C which is required for the building of connective tissue inside the human body. Consumption of foods that are rich in vitamin C helps a person develop resistance against infections and helps to eliminate harmful free radicals that cause certain cancers.”
August is national peach month. In celebration, Emerald rounded up nine goodies — from makeup, to accessories, to flower — which are all inspired by the stone fruit.

Those who admire peachy tones can also add mild bursts of the color into their smoke-wear or home decor. For example, My Bud Vase’s range of flower pokers, which offer both form and function, come in different colors including: hot pink, peach and light pink. These floral arrangements pair well with the company’s bongs, but they can help decoratively disguise other water pipes while also helping clear them when clogged.
