Balance Hormones with Maca Root!

I don't think any of us are free from hormone issues.  Whether it's PMS, menopause, low thyroid, infertility or adrenal fatigue-imbalanced hormones are typically just a way of life. Imbalanced hormones are often the cause of weight issues.  Are you exercising and watching what you eat and still not dropping pounds?  I have one easy, natural solution that will support balanced and healthy hormone function! Maca is a close relative of the radish and is very common in Peru.  It does not contain … [Read more...]

Life Lately-Summer Edition…

So the last time I posted a personal post I talked about forgiveness.  Oh wow.  It's not something I've conquered but I'm still making a conscious decision to ACCEPT.  Since then so much has clicked into place!  I'm seriously on cloud 9 and I really mean it-no brave front here-I have finally reached the end of this God forsaken tunnel called divorce.  So for all of you in the tunnel-I'm out! Keep pushing cause there is light! First off, don't you just love summer?  By day it's stinky … [Read more...]

A Ringworm Remedy Among Other Things….

My girls and I got ringworm.  How's that for transparent?  Back in October we bought two kittens and they ended up giving us ringworm, or so I think.  Now, let's get one thing straight-ringworm is not actually caused by a worm.  It's a fungal rash very much like Athlete's foot and jock itch.  Awesome.  It's a round rash that is crazy hard to get rid of and very contagious.  First Heidi got a patch on her back.  Then I got a patch on my arm and next Sofie got one on her arm as well.  I knew it … [Read more...]

Good Being June Beauty Box-Plus a GIVEAWAY!

It's already that time again!  Good Being's June box was filled with even more awesomeness then the May box if that's even possible!  I'm using all 5 products on a daily basis!  Plus, each product was pretty much full sized!  Let's dig in because I think there might be some products you'll find beneficial. First off, these exfoliating face pads are an excellent way to get rid of dead skin.  These are especially great in the summer when skin damage is occurring left and right with too much … [Read more...]

Get No-Heat Waves!

I absolutely hate curling my hair.  I hate how long it takes.  I hate how damaging it is.  And I hate that for all the effort, I get maybe 4 hours worth of curls.  Not to mention-I'm just not that good at it.  I do love the look of curled hair though.  I often sleep in french braids to give my hair a wave but sometimes I'll catch myself in a mirror the day after and realize the waves just don't look current.  Having your hair curled can pull your look together.  Instead of air dried, straight, … [Read more...]

The Power of Diffusing Essential Oils

I love diffusing.  I diffuse daily for several reasons and I believe it's a healthy habit that can enhance your overall being.  There are many benefits to diffusing that I'd like to shine a light on in case you're on the fence as to whether you should use essential oils in your home. When you diffuse, you add filtered water and 8-10 drops of essential oils.  I typically run mine for about 2 hours at a time.  The diffuser creates a mist that becomes suspended into the air for 2-3 hours after … [Read more...]

ETSY Newbies!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!  I thought I'd drop in because I just recently added a few products to my Etsy shop! For those of you unfamiliar with my handmade skin care, you might be wondering why I think I'm qualified to have a skin care line?  Well, I'm glad you asked! My philosophy on skin health, and what I've based this blog on, is that skin care should be simple.  In fact, I think it should be mostly edible.  I don't have to be a chemist to concoct a product that … [Read more...]

coQ10 Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil Recipe

Since I unveiled my new facial oil on Etsy I've been getting requests for the exact recipe.  I have no problem sharing all my Etsy shop recipes because I know there are 2 types of people in this world-the DIY people and the "ain't nobody got time for that-just buy it!!" people-lol!  So I'm always happy to be transparent with exactly what I'm putting in my Etsy products.  I am a true DIYer after all! This is a pretty simple recipe but it's an expensive one.  I literally compiled the BEST oils … [Read more...]

Skin Benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil

I bet most of you have heard of sea buckthorn oil by now.  It is one of the most expensive oils to buy but also one of the most effective oils for ALL skin types.  Since it is expensive, I had put off buying a quality sea buckthorn oil (from Mountain Rose Herb-because I trust their quality above any other) but I couldn't ignore the raving reviews of this oil any longer!  Especially when I heard it contains 12x more vitamin C then an orange!  In fact, I've actually added it to my new facial oil … [Read more...]

Facial Oils vs. Facial Creams-Which one is better?

Which form of moisturizer is more effective-a lotion or an oil?  I've been getting this question a lot lately and have come to form a very strong opinion on the debate!  Let me break this question down and shed some light on the inner workings of both products. Lotions are OH SO creamy, cold and lovely, right?!  I agree.  I love me a lotion, especially when I make it myself.  There's just something about slathering a cream on your skin and literally seeing your skin drink it up.  The thing … [Read more...]

coQ10 Skin Benefits Plus DIY Facial Oil!

I'm sure most of you have heard of coQ10.  It's a buzz word in the skin care industry.  Today, let's talk about what coQ10 is, why it benefits our skin and how we can make a SUPER SIMPLE product with coQ10 in it!! coQ10 is somewhat similar to hyaluronic acid and collagen.  Our bodies naturally produce all 3.  As we get older, our bodies production slacks off and the result is lost firmness and elasticity.  Basically, before the age of 20, our body produces coQ10 in abundance.  Age 30 hits, … [Read more...]
