The Benefits of Raw Honey

The Benefits of Raw Honey
Hey there,

We’re constantly hearing about the many 
benefits of raw, unprocessed honey. But 
as it turns out, it’s also really good 
for your skin!

There are lots of antibacterial products 
on the market, and sometimes you need 
that sort of treatment for your face. But 
instead of applying something that’s 
commercially made with added chemicals, 
try this next time instead. 

Thoroughly cleanse the spot on your skin 
that needs antibacterial treatment, then 
apply a teaspoon of raw, unprocessed honey 
to the area and gently massage it into the 
skin. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse 
with warm water. Repeat until the infection 
is gone.

The same type of treatment can be used as 
a face mask, too.

After removing all of your makeup, take a 
teaspoon of honey and gently work it into 
your face. And don’t worry about it stripping 
your skin. Honey is very calming, so it won’t 
hurt your face at all. Let it sit for 10 
minutes and then rinse with warm water, just 
like a regular face mask. 

Raw honey is also anti-inflammatory. 
Sometimes our skin needs some cooling down, 
and when you’re looking to adopt a more natural 
skincare routine you want to shy away from 
chemicals. 

So if an area on your body is irritated and 
inflamed, simply take a teaspoon of honey and 
let it sit for 10 minutes or so, just like the 
other treatments, and then rinse off with warm 
water. 

Whenever possible, try to purchase locally-sourced 
honey. Just make sure that it’s raw and unprocessed, 
too. 

If you’re really feeling luxurious, then consider 
using raw honey as a mask on other parts of your 
body, too. Such as your legs, arms, and even your 
neck. It’s not just our face that needs some love!

These are just a few ways to use all-natural, raw 
honey as part of your skincare routine. 

In next week's blog, I'll discuss the benefits of 
papaya as part of your natural skincare routine!

Adrenal Support


As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!!  I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil.  Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning.  I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well!  Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys.   Need to get some of these oils?  CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED





The Benefits of Oatmeal

The Benefits of Oatmeal
Hey there,

If you have ever taken a look at all of 
the bath and body products at your local 
drugstore, then you’ve probably seen a lot 
that contain oatmeal. 

That’s because it’s considered to be nature’s 
exfoliator. 

But before you go rubbing some of the 
quick-cooking oats that you probably have 
in your pantry all over your body, you should
know they are different than what we’re talking 
about. 

Colloidal oatmeal is what the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA) approves as a natural way 
to treat dry skin. This is a finely ground powder
from natural oats that dissolves in water.

Especially if you have eczema, which is an 
extreme, medically diagnosed form of dry skin. 

So if your skin needs a little moisturizing, then 
keep reading to learn about ways to use colloidal 
oatmeal as part of your natural skincare routine!

If you decide to use freshly ground, colloidal 
oatmeal, then here’s an idea to use it as an 
all-over body scrub. 

Just mix some up with locally-sourced, organic honey, 
add some water and then apply it to your clean skin, 
focusing on areas that are extremely dry such as your 
elbows and knees. Massage it in for about a minute, 
and then rinse off with warm water and pat dry. 

You can use it on your face, too. Apply the same 
mixture to your freshly-cleansed skin, massaging 
it for about a minute and then rinse off. 

If the bottom of your feet, especially your soles, 
often get dry then this is a great way to soften them 
up. Simply use the same mixture while holding it over 
a foot bath. 

You can also prepare some ahead of time and put it in 
a jar, then leave it on your skin. Simply use it as a 
hand scrub every time you wash up. 

Soap and water can actually dry out your skin, so use it 
as often as possible. 


Making your own skincare products can be easy 
and fun plus you now know all the ingredients!

These are just a few ways to use all-natural, colloidal 
oatmeal as part of your skincare routine.

colloidal oatmeal here:

The Benefits of Jojoba Oil

The Benefits of Jojoba Oil
Welcome to our next blog series: Toxin-Free Skin Care!

In this series we'll be looking at great toxin-free 
alternatives to keep your skin looking fabulous!
Enjoy this first post about a wonderful carrier oil,
Jojoba.

When making the decision to switch to a more 
natural skincare routine, you might be surprised 
to hear about all of the benefits of jojoba oil. 

For starters, it’s non-comedogenic. Which means 
that it won’t clog your pores. 

This is especially good news for those of us with 
sensitive skin, the kind that tends to easily break 
out from the use of facial oil. 

And part of your skincare routine is to remove 
excess dirt and oil from your face, so knowing that 
a natural oil won’t cause buildup is a major plus. 

Another benefit of jojoba oil is that structurally 
speaking, it’s incredibly similar to the natural sebum 
that your own skin produces. 

Which is why so many people use it as a daily moisturizer, 
seeing as how it comes straight from nature. 

If you’re someone who often wears makeup, then here’s 
yet another reason to add jojoba oil to your skincare 
routine: it’s a game-changer when it comes to removing 
stubborn makeup. 

This means that instead of using makeup-removal wipes 
before you even wash your face, a quick application of 
jojoba oil will do the trick. I especially love this for mascara
removal.

And this is also good for the environment, since you won’t 
be adding those wipes to your garbage or septic system. 

If those two benefits haven’t convinced you to incorporate 
jojoba oil into your natural skincare routine, then maybe 
this will. 

Jojoba oil is full of natural, anti-inflammatory properties. 

Inflammation of the skin happens when you’ve been outside too 
long under the sun, perhaps with either very little or no 
sunscreen, and your skin gets sunburned. Aloe vera will help, 
but so will jojoba oil. 

Or perhaps you’ve been picking at a zit or have a wound on 
your face that’s become irritated. Try applying a little bit 
of jojoba oil to see if the natural, anti-inflammatory 
properties help calm your skin down. 

You can easily find jojoba oil in whole food shops, 
health stores and even beauty retailers. Look for ones 
that are 100% and all natural, and test it out on a small 
part of your skin first. 

In our next blog post I'll discuss the benefits of oatmeal 
as part of your natural skincare routine!
