Hyaluronic Pumpkin Serum DIY

A new hyaluronic acid post has been a long time coming.  My first HA recipe HERE has been my most viewed post since I published it but I haven't played with the ingredient since.  I've been wanting to explore botanical extracts as well but since most of those need to be in a water based solution, I had put them on the back burner.  Then it dawned on me-a 1% hyaluronic solution would be the perfect base for extracts and I've been experimenting ever since!  Plus, it's fall and PUMPKIN IS IN.  What … [Read more...]

Vegan DIYs with Candelilla Wax

Many of you have requested I post more vegan DIYs.  For a while I just couldn't quite figure out how to do that in products like lip balms, healing salves and vapor rubs.  Basically anything that is a salve requires beeswax and beeswax is a product that comes from an animal.  Beeswax is so wonderful to work with and gives balms the perfect texture while providing nourishment to the skin that I was hesitant to try anything else.  I did some research and stumbled upon Candelilla wax.  I decided to … [Read more...]

DIY or BUY: Badger Sleep Balm

Who can say they get too much quality sleep?  Not many of us, I'm guessing.  So many factors affect sleep.  The two big ones for me are stress and hormones-oh and my new cat, August Banks.  He likes to rearrange his poop and pee in the litter box at least twice a night and enjoys knocking random objects off table tops around 4 in the morning.  Insert teeth gritted emoji. I'm sure many of you have kiddos waking up in the middle of the night and snoring spouses.  Once we hit a certain age, … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life of an Avid DIYer…

Since starting this blog, I've realized that I am a true DIYer.  I will literally DIY anything.  If you come to my home, you'll notice I DIY the art on my walls.  I even had 2 DIY births-yes, you heard that right-I had 2 home births but my last baby came too soon so the midwife didn't make it-who needs a doctor or midwife when you're a DIYer?  Totally kidding.  If you're familiar with this blog, you know the list of DIYs goes on and on!  From candles to chap-stick, I've covered a lot of bases.  … [Read more...]

Facial Oils vs. Facial Creams-Which one is better?

Which form of moisturizer is more effective-a lotion or an oil?  I've been getting this question a lot lately and have come to form a very strong opinion on the debate!  Let me break this question down and shed some light on the inner workings of both products. Lotions are OH SO creamy, cold and lovely, right?!  I agree.  I love me a lotion, especially when I make it myself.  There's just something about slathering a cream on your skin and literally seeing your skin drink it up.  The thing … [Read more...]

coQ10 Skin Benefits Plus DIY Facial Oil!

I'm sure most of you have heard of coQ10.  It's a buzz word in the skin care industry.  Today, let's talk about what coQ10 is, why it benefits our skin and how we can make a SUPER SIMPLE product with coQ10 in it!! coQ10 is somewhat similar to hyaluronic acid and collagen.  Our bodies naturally produce all 3.  As we get older, our bodies production slacks off and the result is lost firmness and elasticity.  Basically, before the age of 20, our body produces coQ10 in abundance.  Age 30 hits, … [Read more...]
