DIY or BUY: Calendula Eye Balm

Last week we learned how easy it is to infuse oil with calendula flowers.  I've already made several DIYs with my new calendula infused safflower oil and am excited to share one today!  This DIY is a dupe of Indie Lee's Calendula Eye Balm.  I adore their products and since we're mostly DIYers here, this particular product is one to recreate rather then buy due to it's simple formation!  Of course, if you don't like to DIY, you can find it HERE. 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!

Today is … [Read more...]

DIY Squalane Hydrating Serum

Spark Naturals Winter Survival Kit!

Ugh.  Winter.  I wasn't singing this tune mid September when we were having 95 degrees and no rain in sight.  Don't get me wrong, I love anything cozy.  In order to truly get cozy, it has to be cold outside (at least I think so).   So the whole holiday we've had a roaring fire, worn pajamas, sipped hot chocolate and sneezed.  With the good comes the bad.  Lack of vitamin D from the sun, stale, recycled, dry air, and too much un healthy foods around the holidays all contribute to colds and flu … [Read more...]
