DIY Acne Clearing Moisturizer

As I posted a few weeks ago, I had quite the shopping spree at Mountain Rose Herb, where I purchase about 90% of all my skin care ingredients.  I blindly chose a few oils that were affordable not really knowing what they were good for.  Turns out,  several of them are perfect for oilier skin types and known to not clog pores.  So, I formulated a super simple facial oil that is non-comedogenic, will help fade acne scaring and has been proven to reduce inflammation while killing bacteria.  While … [Read more...]

Is Your Coffee Making You Fat?

Yeah, you heard that right.  Let me back up a bit and explain where I'm going with this.  A few months ago I started feeling all those old symptoms of what I have always called IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).  I was constipated. gassy and bloated.  Like we're talking the kind of bloat where you can feel it when you sit down-like what it feels like to be 5-7 mos. pregnant.  I couldn't hide it no matter what I wore nor could I figure out if I had simply gained weight or was just really bloated.  I … [Read more...]

Indie Lee calls their calendula balm "a … [Read more...]

How to Infuse Oil with Calendula Flowers

Calendula is the ultimate healing flower that is antimicrobial and anti fungal as well as a powerful anti inflammatory!  It is the perfect oil to use in a healing balm or even in skin care!  So, before I share a couple of recipes using Calendula Infused Oil, we must learn how to properly infuse the oil first! There are 2 ways to infuse oil.  The first way is to add dried calendula to a jar, cover the flowers with a carrier oil and place the jar in a sunny window.  Wait at least 6 weeks until … [Read more...]

My Shopping Spree @ Mountain Rose Herb!

I think I've made it pretty clear how much I love Mountain Rose Herb for organic, eco-friendly ingredients for our DIY projects but today I'm taking it to the next level.  I seriously have been bit AGAIN by the DIY bug and am planning so many DIYs!  I literally ordered everything I was mildly interested in and now that it has arrived, I'm buzzing with all the DIY potential!  I've gone through everything, researching what the ingredients are best known to do and it's rather exciting. Today is … [Read more...]
