100 Organic Skin Care Recipes : Make Your Own F...

The reason? Emulsions are all-in-one combinations of: water (to provide moisture to the skin); humectants (to attract more moisture to the skin); emollients (to soften the upper layers of the skin); and occlusives (to prevent water from evaporating from the skin). By using balms or salves only, you are completely missing water and humectants as you are only applying emollients and occlusives. This means that if your skin is not well hydrated, long-term use of anhydrous balms can actually make it even drier.

For this refreshing (and tasty!) treatment, mash a handful of ripe strawberries with 3 tablespoons of ground almonds. Add 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and mix until the mixture has a pasty texture. Apply it to your face and rinse for soft, smooth skin. If you have any left over, make sure to keep it refrigerated.

From refreshing citrus or peppermint to floral geranium, naturally scented candles are a lovely way to incorporate personalized aromatherapy blends into your space. In order to successfully use essential oils to scent your homemade candles, you'll need to add a higher proportion of essential oil than you would for a typical body care recipe or even natural cleaning recipes. The amount you'll want to use is similar to what you'd find in soap recipes, since much of the essential oil dissipates when mixed into the hot wax. We recommend 1/2 ounce to 1 ounce of essential oil per 8 ounces of melted candle wax. We used roughly 200 drops of essential oil per 4 ounces of wax and found this to be a good ratio for strong aromas like lavender.

It turns out though that soapmakers have been wrong all along, though. You CAN use more than that amount of coconut oil in a soap recipe. The trick is giving the recipe a 20% superfat and the finished bars an extra-long cure time. This recipe accounts for both and will give you hard white bars that lather well and that are gentle on your skin.

Like so many other DIY skincare items that you can make yourself, this pure tallow soap recipe can be personalized with different essential oils. You can do a single scent, or get creative and use a blend of essential oils.

Your skin is the largest and fastest-growing organ of your body and accounts for 6 to 10 percent of your body weight. All of your cells require good nutrition, proper hydration, oxygenation, and detoxification to thrive. What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. With this in mind, healthy skin can be achieved by making positive, well-considered choices in relation to your mind, body, and spirit. In addition to your skincare regimen, you want to pay attention to additional factors that can contribute to healthy skin, including:

Many of the skincare recipes in the book will benefit all skin types, and others are intended for specific skin types and conditions. You many wonder how the same facial cleanser could benefit dry, maturing skin and also be good for oily, acne-prone skin. Well, many botanical ingredients are adaptogens, or balancers. This means that, as the plant substance makes its way through the bloodstream, it attends to the specific needs of the individual person. For example, a product can be either calming or stimulating depending on the person who uses it. While this concept is not widely accepted in Western medical philosophy, it has been effectively employed for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, as well as Ayurvedic medicine, which has a similar concept called rasayana. Additionally, all skin types benefit from increased cellular health and regeneration. Many of the skincare preparations included in this book are formulated as tonic skin conditioners to promote vitality and support balanced oil production in all skin types.

Whether you create a meditative solitary spa day or a boisterous home spa party with friends, the goal is to pamper yourself, nurture your skin, revive your spirit, and restore balance to your entire being. During these home spa sessions, deliberately leave your daily worries at the door and surrender to relaxation and replenishment. This is your me time to nurture health and vitality in your mind, body, and spirit. You have committed to a sensory journey with the sole purpose of making positive improvements to your overall well-being. Create the home spa recipes in this book for your enjoyment, your beautification, your stress release, your joy.

True beauty comes from being happy and feeling beautiful. Using fabulous skin care and home spa products just feels good, makes your skin happy, and makes your heart glow too. With that in mind, here is my favorite and most valuable beauty secret, the simple thing that you can do every day to enhance your inner glow and outer radiance. Are you ready for this? All you have to do is look in the mirror at least once each day and say to yourself: You are so beautiful. I love you! If this seems hard, do it anyway! The more you do this, the easier it will become. Just take a deep breath, inhale love, and exhale peace. This simple process actually goes really deep, to the core of your being. It can bring emotions and deeper issues to the surface. And that is a good thing! Your heartfelt emotions are a beautiful reflection of you.

This oil is also deeply moisturizing and aids in removing redness and irritation. These properties also make rosehip oil a possible treatment for rosacea when used as a cold-pressed oil, cream or rosehip-based skin care product. Ad

You can use roseship oil in your skin care routine to improve your complexion. You can simply apply one to two drops to dark spots and fine lines daily. Or you can use this recipe with two essential oils.

I use Sukin organic rose hip oil for my face including around my eyes- no more dry eyes! I love that it is organic & natural and does not feel too oily. It cleared up keratosis pilaris on my atms, the little red bumps you get from dry skin trapping sebum oils. This is a wonderful product, worth every cent! I would use a carrier oil if you mix it with anything or an organic skin care cream. Never with a pricey skin care cream that contains fragrance & a million chemicals- you will undo the benefits! My eyes look & feel wonderful!

Kelcey do you use the rosehip along with the hemp oil on your face? I use coconut oil bummer that it is a 4 did not know that. It sure makes my skin soft. My pours are really big what do I use to shrink them? Is there an oil for that?

Where do you buy your hemp oil from? I seen one on Mountain Rose Herbs and was considering getting that, and the rosehip seed oil. Are their products 100% organic and cold pressed? I seen their rosehip seed oil was cold-pressed refined. Will it still offer the same benefits since refined? I have super sensitive skin so trying to find a good mix. New to the essential oil thing so just learning. I currently am using Argan oil and rosehip seed oil from NOW, but they have mixed reviews on their quality. Thanks for your help, and sorry for all the questions.

Our Tallow Balm RecipeA pictorial tutorialWe didn't invent the idea of making skin balm out of tallow. We just re-discovered it, popularized it with our article in the Winter 2012 edition of the Wise Traditions Journal, and invented the term "tallow balm". If you're the do-it-yourself type, you may prefer to make your own tallow balm. We encourage it! The fewer people putting those chemical lotions on their skin, the better! If you decide that do-it-yourself isn't your cup of tea, we would, of course, be happy to make Tallow Balm for you.

The amount of the other ingredient(s) that you mix with the tallow will depend on the ingredient and the degree of spreadability you are looking for. We use extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil has been considered a healing salve for the skin since ancient times due to its soothing, cleansing, and moisturizing properties. Olive oil is liquid at room temperature, so not much is needed to soften the tallow. If you use a product that is more solid, such as coconut oil, palm oil, or shea butter, you will need to use more, partially defeating the goal of having a balm high in tallow content. Whatever you use, be sure it is pure and organic. For example, coconut oil, palm oil, and shea butter are sometimes extracted using hexane, which is refined gasoline. Know your ingredients.

If desired, you can add essential oils to the liquid mixture as well. We use specific essential oils, such as lavender, that are known for their long-standing tradition of promoting optimal skin health. Another major benefit of using essential oils in your tallow balm is to give it a fresh, pleasant scent and to neutralize the scent of the tallow, which is distinctive although not unpleasant. Since essential oils are extremely concentrated, not much is needed, but care should be taken not to use any that are adulterated, extended, synthesized, or distilled using chemicals or high temperatures and pressure. For this reason, we use therapeutic-grade, genuine essential oils. Again, it is important to know your ingredients and to remember the principle of using only those ingredients that are edible whole foods. You will be able to take pride in the fact that you could take out a spoon and eat this tallow balm since it is a nourishing food for skin and body! 041b061a72
