Pain Killer Headache Stick!

Headaches are such a bummer.  Unfortunately, I get them all the time-I can't wear a pony-tail without a head ache and I do all my blog posts via the sofa despite my new office space!  I had to find a way to relieve the pain without popping a pill all the time!  I searched and searched and found Dori's blend-Since she's a fellow Spark Naturals user and very essential oil savy-I knew she had the best essential oil blend.  Luckily I had all the oils, mixed it up and experienced immediate relief.  … [Read more...]

Essential Oil Roll-On for Blemished Skin

Having irritated, blemished skin can be so frustrated.  Despite being in the skin care business, I have always battled my skin.  You name the skin issue, and I've probably had it.  I've tried everything you can think of in the pursuit of beautiful skin.   Seriously, giving people facials while I had ugly skin was mortifying.   I worked in spas and had just about every skin treatment at my fingertips.  My poor skin was so over processed.  I'm not going to claim that I've  found a magic potion … [Read more...]

Green Tea Toner (for acne prone skin)

The last few weeks I have been experiencing break outs.  I haven't yet pinpointed what the cause is but it has given me a different perspective on skin.  My skin is so dry in places yet clogged in other places.  Combination skin is frustrating to deal with!  I must say, I am seeing quick results using French Green Clay as a mask, my Skin Clearing Serum, and also my Dry Skin Stick.   I wanted to make a toner that would balance my very unbalanced skin and also help de-clog pores.  Green Tea is … [Read more...]

So Simple Spray Deodorant!

I went to the gym today.   I haven't been in years-I usually do Peak 8 on my treadmill at home so going somewhere was a BIG change.  It donned on me before I went that I was going to have to do something about my outrageous B.O.  I quit deodorant a while ago.  I made my own (recipe HERE) but ran out and just never made more.  I'm probably sounding like a crunchy hippy about now, I'm really not, just my pits are.  Let me just be frank-I STINK. All. The. Time.  So this morning I recalled a post on … [Read more...]
