DIY Eucalyptus Lemon Heel Salve

Heels are such a problem, especially in cold weather months!  Heck, they're a problem in the summer too!  Going barefoot wreaks havoc on the bottoms of feet.  In fact, speaking of summer, have you ever had super cute sandals on only to ruin it with heels that look like they belong to a 100 year old?!  The best thing for heels is consistency.  Keeping that heel file handy and having a nourishing foot balm is key.  Today, you guessed-let's make a heel salve!! I have been making this recipe for … [Read more...]

Lotion Making for the Beginner…. 3 ingredients-2 of which are in your kitchen!

So I was thinking about how daunting DIY skin care can be.  Especially making lotions.  I think most of us are most intrigued at making lotions but are uncertain about how much ingredients are going to cost and then what if your cream does come out right?  These are two very valid concerns.  I usually like to link my ingredients to Mountain Rose Herb because I trust their quality, but for today, I'm going to link all Amazon Prime, Jenni Approved ingredients-That way you can save on shipping, get … [Read more...]

Olive + M Cleansing Oil

The olive oil based skin care line, Olive + M is the most inspiring natural skin care line.  As you all know, I love products with minimal ingredients that I can recognize.  In skin care, often, less is more.  The skin can actually thrive on simple, pure oils rather then creams and cleansers filled with chemicals in order to achieve consistency, lather and prolonged shelf life.  Pure simple oils are the most direct and potent way to deliver goodness to your skin.  Olive & M totally gets … [Read more...]

Gardener’s Soothing Hand Salve

Gardening is a favorite past time for many people-I get it-you literally make life out of nothing!  It's so rewarding, yet can be so grueling!  I live amongst A LOT of nature, some of which is not wild.  Meaning-I've got a whole lot of weeding to do almost on a weekly basis!  My hands get wrecked and ravaged after a day of gardening.  I'm talking cuts, raw skin and rough dry patches.  I'm sure you fellow gardeners know exactly what I'm talking about. After a particularly rough day in the … [Read more...]

DIY Vaseline

Product snobbery aside, who doesn't love Vaseline?  I mean it is an amazing lip balm, soothes dry, cracked skin and even removes eye make up.  There's an old commercial where they refer to Vaseline as the "wonder jelly" and claims Vaseline will take the squeak out of doors, shine your shoes and even condition leather.  At the end of the commercial they call it "100% pure".  Well, technically it is-if you don't mind slathering on a waste product of the oil industry!  Vaseline is extremely refined … [Read more...]

DIY 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...]
