It’s the dawn of a new year, and I am feeling the yearly need to detoxify myself inside and out! I know I am not alone, so this year I have a whole slew of detoxifying posts to help get you through this first month of the new year. Really, though, you could choose to […]
I have a secret ingredient that I prefer to use in place of the water in ALL of my DIY beauty products and toiletries. Hydrosols, aka flower waters! I first came across hydrosols in my essential oil studies. I had learned that they were a result of making essential oils, essentially a byproduct. I was […]
Some people have the natural ability to make a rouge color in their cheeks, just with the thought of something that embarrasses them. Others have constant pink cheeks all day, every day. While others have to supplement the rouge in their cheeks using blush. Since the dawn of makeup, women have been applying blush to […]
