About Me//

Jenni Raincloud

Hi!  I’m Jenni.  Welcome to my blog!  I live in Edmond, Oklahoma with my two daughters, Sofie and Heidi.  Throughout my journey as a mother, I have had 2 home births which taught me that when we feed our body, mind and soul properly, the body responds in a miraculous way.  While I want to center this blog around all things girly, I always want to stick with my convictions of staying natural and respecting my body.  I want to empower you to say no to harmful ingredients and toxic chemicals in your daily routine and give you the resources and alternatives to make it easy!

I have been an Aesthetician for over a decade now.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE skin care and makeup!  You’ve come to the right place if you are looking to DITCH THE TOXINS in your beauty products! The main purpose of this blog is to show you a way to create your own highly effective, organic skin care products as well as find over the counter products that are effect yet safe.

I have been DIYing my own products for over 2 years now.  It began as a way to provide myself and my family with more natural products that I had complete control over.  As I went deeper into my research, the more intrigued I became with the scary side of the beauty industry.  Did you know that unlike the food industry, the beauty industry is not regulated by any legit group?  That means that there is no rule that says skin care and makeup companies have to list every single ingredient on the back of their products!  Also upon further research I found that that while Europe has banned 100s of harmful ingredients in their skin care, the US has banned around 10!  While I had realized with my pregnancies and births that I and I alone was in charge of my body, it became very clear that I needed to take that same initiative with my beauty products as well.   Using my background in skin care as well as my endless pursuit of ingredient knowledge, I feel confident that my skin care recipes are effective and safe.  I truly aim to make food for your skin.  90% of the time I live by the motto, “if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin”.

When it comes to OTC (over the counter) products, I have found many that I love.  I continue to try out different brands and products and will always share the best with you!  Go HERE for a list of my current favorite natural beauty products.  It’s exciting to see that there has been a shift lately in the beauty industry-harmful parabens, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, and propylene glycol (just to name a few) are being left out of many popular brands.  High powered beauty execs are wising up and realizing the beauty industry is heading in a more natural direction!  It’s exciting to see the progress.  That being said, there are still many extremely popular yet extremely harmful products out there that should be avoided.  I hope I can help navigate you to more natural products in your beauty routine!Jenni Raincloud

A little bit about me?  I got the nickname Jenni Raincloud from a close friend years ago.  She found my love for scary movies, Phantom of the Opera, Dark Shadows and basically all things creepy and kooky endearing.  I have lived most my life in Oklahoma apart from 3 years spent in England.  Going to high school in London left quite the impression and shaped much of who I am today.  I studied piano performance in college and when I came to my senses realizing I would not be a world famous concert pianist, I went to beauty school-obvious choice, right?  Ha!   Years and years and a divorce later I am a well-rounded, Jesus lovin’ momma who believes that if you focus on the positive, the positive will multiply!  My girls remind me daily that God is so good.

I absolutely love creating my own skin care-So much so that I sell select products in my Etsy shop!  Check it out if you are looking for simple yet effective skin care made with high quality, organic ingredients!  I promise your skin will love it!

Jenni Raincloud is truly a lifestyle blog.  A lifestyle defined by a healthy body, a beautiful home, a wardrobe that represents inner beauty, natural remedies and of course, loads of natural, pure skin care and make up!  These are the things that make me happy and the genius that invented blogging made it possible for me to fit it all in one place!  Stick with me.  I’ll work hard to make your pursuit of living more naturally, a little easier!

    I love a holistic natural approach to what I eat and what I grow in my garden also want to learn how to make all natural creams for my skin and grandbabies. So tired of all the toxins and chemicals added to everything. Sincerely, Susan Lynch

    Excellent blog! If you have not yet experienced doTERRA Essential Oils I would love to share some samples with you.

      Pam-Thank you! I use Spark Naturals oils-I used to use Young Living but made the switch over a year ago. Thanks for the suggestion but I’m very happy with Spark!

        I love your blog, we def share the same love and passion for a holistic lifestyle without toxics! May I ask why you made the switch from YL to Spark?

        • February 28, 2016 / 9:59 pm

          Thanks Marie! I still believe YL has amazing quality oils but I got so tired of the high prices, high shipping and difficulty ordering. Spark has a website you can order from directly and offer slightly better prices. I love the quality as well. Basically I feel that I have found all the quality of YL but with much easier company to deal with.

            Thanks for getting back with an honest and informing answer Jennifer 🙂 It does look like a great company 🙂 However I’m living in Denmark and Yl has warehouses within Europe, while Sparks does it from US (correct?). So I’ll be charged extra taxes + additional things to just get it into Denmark! Buhl!

          • March 4, 2016 / 7:21 am

            Marie-Yes, unfortunately Spark is a US company and they don’t ship outside. YL has amazing oils-stick with them! I love that they own their own farms so they are in control of everything from start to finish.

    Thank you so much, Jenni, for sharing your passion. Over a year ago, I moved back to the U.S. after living overseas in a high-stress environment. I realized that I already had developed some wrinkles around my eyes and that my overall health was deteriorating, so I decided to go on a mission to figure out what was wrong. I started seeing a naturopath and researching a ton about nutrition & wellness, including skin care. I realized that the saying “you are what you eat” is a LOT truer than I ever thought!! Now I’m on the path to wellness, and your anti-wrinkle essential oil stick is making a visible difference around my eyes. I am excited to keep trying your products and get back to good health, inside and out!

      Danika-Hi! You are so welcome! I’m so glad you are seeing results from the eye stick! Good luck on your journey-I find I’m in a constant state of making the right decisions with my own journey-it’s definitely a lifestyle and a process!

    I am inpressed with you living in Oklahoma, as my husband and myself live in Ada,Ok and after watching on Hallmark movie called Harvest Moon of a young lady dad bought her a Pumpkin Ranch as it became successful after a Grandma had wrote her recipe on the back of her Granddaughter picture and placed it into the picture album then later on the girl say 12, takes the picture out of the Album and owner of their Ranch notice the recipe on the back of the picture as the girl was holding the picture, now she helped them put the recipe together and helped them sell it to others and do facials to help bring in money until her friend found a sciencist helped find a pumpkin ingredient that made it special and offered to buy the recipe and paid to help them and it helped safe the ranch for the people who had owned and then they had a harvest fest and became engaged by the man who was the owner before her Dad bought it for her, So, the movie as a Born Again Christian and the Lord found the movie a very clean cut movie and enjoyable and it made me wonder if there was a pumpkin facial mask, so is there something in the pumpkin that makes it special and I know a Very Dedicate Christian who has products that she is a member of Victory Christian Center, and I say it is a miracle for me to see someone who is a Christian Blessed with a recipe for our faces to be cleaned and made right.

      Gloria! Hi! I haven’t heard of that movie but I’ll look into it-sounds interesting! And yes, pumpkins have many benefits for the skin! I used to do pumpkin facials at a spa I worked at and they were my favorite! They are nourishing to the skin as well as exfoliating. I have a couple of pumpkin posts HERE.

    Jenni. I love you so much. We have so much in common. I wish I could fly out to OK so we could hangout, drink coffee and talk shop all day. I’ve also had 2 homebirth. It’s such an amazing experience that when I meet another mom that has birthed at home I immediately feel connected to them.
    I don’t comment much but I’ve.been reading your blog for a few years.
    I’m thinking of starting my own beauty products line. I’ve been making my own for about 5 years now. My line will be kombucha based though. Using the kombucha and SCOBY in the products. I’m still experimenting with it. Have you ever tried a SCOBY mask? They are wonderful. If you ever need a SCOBY lmk I’ll send you one.
    Take care and thank you for everything.

      Elizabeth!! Wow, I love to connect with fellow home birthers, shoppers and coffee drinkers-ha!! I’m intrigued about a kombucha based line. I hate to say this but I’m not even sure what a scoby is. I’ve heard of it but not quite gone there. I’d love the hear more! jenni@jenniraincloud.com

    I’m a home birther too! In fact, I was, at one point, a certified lay midwife. I loved it passionately, but realized that it was not the right time in my life for it, with three young kids of my own and an unsettled life. I thought I’d come back to it; I never did, and that’s okay. But I still love the reasons behind, and the peace and love of, a good home birth! And I’ve become a true convert to making my own everything, thanks to you, Jenni. I’ve compared a lot of recipes, and yours are the most reliable. Thank you for that, and for all that you continue to teach me. My life and my family’s lives are greatly improved, thanks to you!

    I am obsessed with all things natural as I am becoming more conscious of all these things I put on my skin especially with psoriasis. I love your phrase, “if you cant eat it, don’t put it on your skin” Currently I make my own soap and I have to admit, it is time consuming and can be expensive but the trade off is well worth it. I use the cold process method which started as a challenge but I mastered it! Its definitely addicting making your own products, but I enjoy it. I will be visiting this blog a lot more in the very near future.

    Jenni, I love your Rosehip Cypress Serum and use it mixed with my face and body lotions. My granddaughter uses it as well. She has very dry, flaky skin since she had ovarian cancer at 16 yrs old and has to take synthetic hormone. Currently, she’s going through in-vitro to try and have a baby. So I was wondering if you knew whether or not she can use essential oil during the pregnancy without doing any damage to the baby. Do you know anything regarding this? Thanks so much.

      Hi Winona-Thank you!! Most essential oils can be used during pregnancy. There are a couple exceptions and I believe cypress is one of them. I used lavender and chamomile right on my belly during my last pregnancy. I found THIS article that seems to be very helpful! Good luck!!

    Hi, I am interested in getting information regarding promoting my natural and organic skincare products. My skincare company is new, just formed in 2018. Thank you very much
