Homemade is best. And let me tell you why...

Homemade is best. And let me tell you why...

Last May, I decided that on my birthday I would dedicate the day to some well-deserved self care.

(Of course, we should make self-care a priority every day, but ESPECIALLY on your birthday!)

Ahem! Hello, gorgeous. I'm talking to you. *elbow*

So, I went to get a body polish and facial from a salon that uses a very well known and high priced product line. As a Certified Herbalist and Registered Aromatherapist, things like skin care always interest me. Especially this particular high end product line, which I know started off as an organic, plant-based company who try to stick to their roots.

Typically, I use my own all-natural skin care products. I procure the ingredients, research them, make it and use it - sometimes even infusing my own oils with herbs. (You can check out my facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizers here!)

As I laid back getting ready for my facial, my technician says “Who do you use on your face?". I asked why she was asking. She said "Because you have the most beautiful skin to come in my chair in the past 5 years!"

I was flattered, especially when she told me I had the skin of a 24 year old, HELLO 44!

I then told her what I did for a living and what I used. She was thrilled. She started speaking about drug store bands and how many of them, even the ones I used to use religiously before my own, would strip the natural oils off of your skin. 😞

Then she said, “Homemade is best. No preservatives, no chemicals... just natural oils working with your skin to clean and moisturize the way nature intended."

I left walking out going: "Homemade is best? Homemade is best!" 30 years in the business and she says homemade is best.

I was reminded and proud that homemade is my thing. I am small batch. I use all-natural ingredients. My facial line is homemade, made with love and backed by science.

And with a compliment like that, I had to be doing something right!

So my question is, do YOU struggle to find a natural solution to skincare? Or can't find the right blend that works on your oily/dry/normal/combo/uniquely yours skin? I think I can be of some help.

Because I am so excited about my skin, I want you to be as well. So I am going to give you a FREE 15-minute skin consult. AND after the free consult, I'll throw in an extra 10% off any of my all-natural facial products in my shop.

Because homemade is best, and your skin deserves the best.

To Bright, Light, and Healthy Skin,

#8 Recipes and Ramblings: Shake It Cause You Got It Blend

In 2019, I was awarded Business Woman of the Year from my local Chamber of Commerce. I wasn't really expecting it, but I was excited and nervous. I am someone that is more comfortable working in the background then in the forefront. So, when I found out I would have to go in front of a group of people to accept this award, I freaked!

Botanical Oracle: Rowan, Sorbus torminalis
Botanical Oracle: Rowan, Sorbus torminalis

Rowan, otherwise known as mountain ash, is a descendant of the rose family. The fruit of the tree is similar to dates and can be used fresh a variety of ways. There is not a lot of medicinal information on this plant as it’s not typically used in herbal medicine, but it is used a lot as a building material. 

These trees and shrubs offer birds, insects, and some mammals a great deal of food because their harvests are so plentiful.

#7 Recipes and Ramblings: Solitude Meditation Blend

There are pure blends in this series that will touch upon self-reflection and meditation. I believe that in order to be our best selves, we need time to get to know ourselves.

I have a friend from college that I hadn't seen in almost 10 years. The person that she was to me in college, was not the person that I had lunch with. To say that she had changed is an understatement. As my brother would say, she did a 180.
