Honey for you skin

Image

Some facts you probably didn’t know about honey…………

Honey contains nutraceuticals (powerful antioxidants) which are effective in removing free radicals from our body. Making it great for rejuvenating aging skin as well as skin that has been dulled by over exposure to sunlight.

Honey heals your skin. It possesses antimicrobial, antibacterial, & antifungal properties.

Honey also helps in promoting autolytic debridement (it carries away dead tissue so that live tissue can regenerate over the skin or wound). It also speeds up the healing process by stimulating wound tissues.

Perfect for sensitive, aging or cracked/damaged skin. Because of its regenerative properties & natural texture honey softens & gently cleans your skin. Due to its gentle nature and strong ability honey is the perfect ingredient for skin care, especially for our delicate faces.

Cosmetic Ingredient Labels

 

Did you know that the law allows manufacturers to ask the FDA to grant “trade secret” status for any ingredient. If the FDA grants the request the substance does not have to be listed on the label.

So not only now are companies packing their cosmetics with synthetic ingredients, adding one organic substance and labeling it ‘natural’ (because they say so), now they aren’t even liable to tell us exact what is in it.

I believe there is a responsibility of businesses and craftsmen to consumers, to respect their health and integrity by disclosing ALL ingredients. Not just the ones they WANT you to know about.

For instance, the shady practice of labeling items as “Active Ingredients” and then in small print on the bottom are the “Inactive Ingredients,” where most of the chemicals are listed as stabilizers and aids to ascetic appeal like consistency and coloring. This is done with the pretense to trick the eye of the consumer. That is a sad game that some big businesses play, because by misleading their customers into thinking they are getting a natural product and hiding the caustic ingredients, they’re damaging the customer’s trust, loyalty, and overall health & wellness.

I am passionate about sharing what I know, there’s a community in honest sharing & I enjoy talking with people &/or making them aware of ways to live healthy and happily. I enjoy helping them do that with what I do best: writing & my other creative endeavors in health like making safe, & 100%, obsessively natural cosmetics. I believe that the things we put on our body should be beneficial to us, not hurt us with their caustic ingredients, which is why I started making my own cosmetics & later why I started selling ‘spa quality’ so to speak, cosmetics for realistic, every-man prices. I believe that safety is not saved for the elites, it is a right that we all have access to. I am like I saide passionate about health & happiness & parenting is a part of that, so I strive to provide information on all relative topics… from the environment we need to protect for our kids, from the products we pt on their bodies, the food we feed them, & how we speak & interact with them, etc. Maybe the best way to put it is that I am passionate about life, living well through each day & I hope to share that with as many people as possible.

Cake for Your Thoughts

This post does have rules. (It’s my blog. I can do what I want.)

1. If you break it you buy it. If you read it, you interact with it.
2. If you don’t plan to participate, do not continue reading, do no pass go, do not collect $200.

We all have a cause.

We all have something that lights our fire, puts us on a soap box, and makes us want to do something to change the world.

Whether we share religious beliefs, core values, race, age, education, social status, blah, blah, blah—I have to think that we all want to make the world a better place.

Some of us express it better than others.
Some of us like to “stir the pot” and get people thinking.
Some of us are good “support staff”.
Some of us are good leaders.
Some of us are good followers.

Whatever your personality…

Custom Orders

Within this new line of Aromatherapy Perfumes & Colognes I am pleased to have perfected a few recipes. I continue to try new combinations, as I love listening to the ingredients, being led by them, & having those choices supported by my knowledge of the oils’ chemical compositions & their value in Aromatherapy & Energy & Vibration Healing.

I particularly enjoy crafting fragrances for custom orders because when I create the oil I can see the customer. I see their problems, their desires, their preferences, & so design an oil blend which I know will help that particular person, which will cater to them personally & emphasize their individuality. Because I enjoy it so much I offer custom-designed products for NO extra cost.
