DIY Green Cleaning with Essential Oils…

I ditched household cleansers a few years ago after reading too much on the horrors of regular cleansers.  Just read the warning labels on the back of your products.  If my child will die if they drink it, I don't want it in the house or sprayed all over everything!  Making your own cleansing products is actually very simple and VERY cost effective.  Essential oils are antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal and anti microbial and do an excellent job cleaning everything from counter tops to … [Read more...]

DIY Squalane Hydrating Serum

I talked about the exciting skin benefits of Squalane last week.  Read all about it HERE.  Today I'm sharing a serum I created incorporating squalane.  I have been using this serum for over a week now and am loving it!  I have mentioned that I have very dry skin and this year it's gotten away from me to where I'm having a hard time getting rid of dry patches.  I find the key to managing dry skin is to not let your skin get overly dry in the first place but once it is, consistent oil cleansing … [Read more...]

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...]

Ingredients Spotlight: Squalane

Squalane is an up and coming beauty product that has numerous benefits and when sourced properly, is organic, vegan and great for all skin types! Squalane belongs to the oil family.  It is found naturally in our skin and helps with cell function, elasticity and hydration.  By around the age of 25, the amount of squalane in our skin begins to rapidly decline.  By age 50, we have only 5% left.  Just like it's cousins, collagen, coQ10 and hyaluronic acid-they don't stick around indefinitely and … [Read more...]

Bodz Detox Scrub Review…

Goodness knows we all need a good scrub.  So what, you might ask is a detox scrub?  A detox scrub is a hybrid scrub using detoxifying ingredients such as clays and activated charcoal and combining them with nourishing, beautifying ingredients such as rosehip seed oil and coconut oil.  Once you've got your detoxing and nourishing ingredients, you add an exfoliator such as sugar, salt, shells or jojoba beads and you've got a detox scrub! I've stated before that I really prefer not to DIY scrubs … [Read more...]
