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...]

Olive Oil and Lavender Cleanser and Face Cream….

Olive Oil is one of my favorite oils to use in my homemade moisturizers and cleansers.  It is so healthy for the skin and hair!  It is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins.  Vitamin A is a healing and rebuilding vitamin found in olive oil.  It helps your cells to repair and renew.  It is awesome for preventing the signs of aging.  Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps fight free radicals.  It is one of many antioxidants that olive oil contains.  One of the most potent antioxidant in olive … [Read more...]

Make your own tinted lip balm!

I am super picky with lipstick.  I have so many lipsticks that are too dark that just get shoved in my makeup drawer.  I decided to try adding color to my lip balm recipe by putting my lip stick in the mix and it worked!  The color was subtle but it gave a good shine and a hint of pink that helped brighten me up a bit.  It also dilutes the chemicals in lipstick.  Of course the best thing would be to ditch the lipstick all together but sometimes it's better to reuse then waste! I used Rosemary … [Read more...]

DIY Organic Cleanser Recipe-for Oily Skin.

I started making my own skin care because I wanted to stop using chemicals on my skin.  For most of my career in the skin care industry I used Dermalogica.  I loved this line of skin care.  They had beautifully smelling products with great results.  They claimed to be "all natural" which was good enough for me.  After doing research on all the harmful ingredients that are in skin care I started looking at the never ending ingredient list on the back of my beloved Dermalogica products.  Propylene … [Read more...]

How to make hand lotion-THIS IS SO EASY!!

Making lotion can be very rewarding but it can also be very frustrating.  It's hard to find the right ingredients that don't compromise your lotion's effectiveness, and it's really hard to get the right consistency.  I've done A LOT of experimenting and wasted A LOT of good product.  I've tried so many other blog's recipes and even brushed up on my chemistry (my worst subject) just to get the perfect consistency that will work for the hands.  I had originally posted this same recipe but with way … [Read more...]
