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,

Botanical Oracle: Plantain, Plantago major
Botanical Oracle: Plantain, Plantago major

Plantain is another one of those herbs that I consider a necessity in any herbal pharmacy. This extremely common plant has been researched thoroughly and has proven beneficial for a variety of uses. The largest amount of research for plantain has been in the family of respiratory disorders. Not only does it help to relieve cough, but it has expectorant qualities, and soothes cough-related chest pain.

Recipe and Ramblings: Pine Power Lotion

I find my power in the trees. In fact, as I type this I can start in my backyard and see all the trees protecting me from the outside world. I enjoy being in the water and the ocean - it’s where I am from. However, I learned over time that I feel grounded at home and safe in the trees

Botanical Oracle: Juniper, Juniperus communis
Botanical Oracle: Juniper, Juniperus communis

Juniper and juniper berries were one of the first plants I ever worked with as an herbalist. Juniper essential oil is also a great part of the plant to work with, and I’ve used it in many of my blends.

A lot of people may think of gin when they think of juniper, but the berries from this tree also has a deep-rooted history as far back as the Roman Empire (and probably even further back than that). They are also used in cooking, medicine, and in some cases, flavoring.
