Dry Skin Moisturizer with Shea Butter

I've been making face cream for my mother for a while now, but my "experiments" are never moisturizing enough for her skin.  She gets dry patches on her cheeks and getting a cream that addresses that issue has not been easy.  I have made over 10 different formulations trying to get something that works for her!  I finally did it-I found a concoction that is nourishing and thick enough but not greasy!  With winter coming, we all get a little drier.  With heaters in our homes and cars skin is … [Read more...]

DIY Allergy Relief Balm

Fall is around the corner and with the falling leaves and cooler air, allergies seem to come on with a vengeance.  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are powerful essential oils that combine to make a healthy, easy remedy for sniffles and sneezes!  Together they create a strong antihistamine and reduce inflammation.  So I thought why not make a salve of it?  At my home allergies run rampant.  Before I met my husband I had 4 cats and I would have continued to add to my menagerie if my fiance at the … [Read more...]

Homemade Peppermint Eucalyptus Vapor Rub…..

As most of you know, I am on a mission to rid my house of toxins.  This journey of mine began when I started getting very leery of the skin care industry.  I have been an Aesthetician for over 10 years and have been using and selling professional lines of skin care until about four years ago.  I realized that even if a product is found in a high end salon or claims to be "natural" it most likely couldn't be further from actually being good for your skin.  The laundry list of harmful ingredients … [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...]

DIY Diaper Rash Cream

In our family I've doctored my fair share of diaper rash.  My girls get it anytime a new tooth arrives, or anytime a diaper has been kept on too long and is too wet.  It's so hard to see them in pain and the thought of putting any old diaper rash cream on raw skin is even more painful. The most common diaper rash cream on the market is Desitin.  So, is Desitin safe?  The Skin Deep cosmetic safety database gives Desitin – Original Formula a score of 5 out of 10.  Desitin Creamy, another … [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...]
