DIY Perfume

I love perfume, I've worn it for as long as I can remember.  Well, come to find out, like everything else, it's toxic.  Out of all the beauty products we wear on a daily basis, perfume is the most toxic!  Artificial fragrances have all kinds of side effects.  The big one is hormone disruption!  Smelling good on the outside while your hormones are making you a raging you know what on the inside is no longer going to work.  After having my 2nd baby, my hormones don't need any help being out of … [Read more...]

Dry Skin Moisturizer with Shea Butter

I've been making face cream for my mother for a while now, but my "experiments" are never moisturizing enough for her skin.  She gets dry patches on her cheeks and getting a cream that addresses that issue has not been easy.  I have made over 10 different formulations trying to get something that works for her!  I finally did it-I found a concoction that is nourishing and thick enough but not greasy!  With winter coming, we all get a little drier.  With heaters in our homes and cars skin is … [Read more...]

DIY Allergy Relief Balm

Fall is around the corner and with the falling leaves and cooler air, allergies seem to come on with a vengeance.  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are powerful essential oils that combine to make a healthy, easy remedy for sniffles and sneezes!  Together they create a strong antihistamine and reduce inflammation.  So I thought why not make a salve of it?  At my home allergies run rampant.  Before I met my husband I had 4 cats and I would have continued to add to my menagerie if my fiance at the … [Read more...]

DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm!

Today it's cloudy..... It hasn't been cloudy in over a month, much less rained.  It's mid September and we are still in the 90's, so anything that resembles the coziness of fall inspires me!  I decided to experiment with lip balms today!  I ventured outside my usual essential oil route and "infused" my oils instead!  This turned out to be really simple using tea bags!  I used grapeseed oil as my base because it is odorless.  I found my Pumpkin Spice tea at target. Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm 1/4 cup … [Read more...]

DIY Toothpaste!

  I ran out of my Tom's toothpaste today and it's always a pain to find it in fluoride free so I checked around some favorite blogs and luckily I had all the ingredients to make my own!  I really liked Wellness Mama's basic recipe so I followed it for the most part. I must say though, you have to get over needing your toothpaste to taste good.  Switching from Colgate to Tom's was an adjustment, but I could never go back to Colgate now.  This homemade toothpaste is also an adjustment mainly due … [Read more...]

Overnight Melaleuca Zit Zapper Salve!

I hope everyone loves salves as much as I do!  I feel like I live in an apothecary!  It's so fun!  So in honor of my hormonal break out on my face, I thought it would be smart to make a salve for blemished skin.  Being a facialist, I have given and taken my fair share of "acne treatments".  Usually this simply means burning your skin off with a chemical.  While exfoliation is wonderful for your skin, making your skin smooth and encouraging cell renewal, it can also be harsh for acne sufferers.  … [Read more...]
