essential oils 101

Today I wanted to share this great article on the basics of using essential oils. It’s such a vast topic, and there are many uses for them. There’s a lot to learn so that you can use them safely, and here’s a good place to start – Check out the yoganonymous article here:

Essential Oils 101

I feel so blessed to be able to work with these magical oils for a living when creating my products. The fact that they can do & heal so many things is so exciting to me.

I can’t wait to share more of what I’ve learned in future newsletters & posts, so stay tuned.

Starting fresh {..and having a giveaway}

Sacred Lotus FlowerWell, I’ve been dropping hints about this for months, and I’m finally ready to let you know that I’m making some big changes.

For the last year and a half I’ve been working on a line of handcrafted, natural skin care products, which will be in my online shop in a couple of months. Woohoo! I’m so excited to share them with you.

I’m even more excited to start writing more articles, how-to’s, etc. about all of the things that I love – herbalism, self care, ayurveda, supporting small businesses (organic farmers, beekeepers, essential oil producers..etc.), fair trade, aromatherapy, health & wellness, different healing modalities, detoxing, non-gmo ingredients, nutrition, sustainability, d.i.y natural skincare ..etc..etc.. etc.. all things that tie into what I’ve been working on.

I find it appaling that there are so many so called “natural and organic” skincare products out there that are loaded with harmful ingredients. I hate it when people I love are tricked by the marketing buzz words. I know it can be overwhelming navigating through all the info out there, but I love it. I want to make your life easier by breaking it down for you, and sharing what I’ve learned. And by creating products that are truly natural, non-gmo, cruelty-free, organic whenever possible, in recyclable packaging, and made with the highest quality ingredients I can get my hands on.

I’m also having a fall giveaway on my Facebook Page

New Giveaway

So head on over there to let me know your number one skincare need/concern – The winner will get the item of their choice from my shop

I’ll still be doing t-shirts from time to time – but all new items will be limited edition, printed in very small runs.

If natural skincare isn’t your thing, sign up here to get updates on new t-shirts and art. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to continuing to share info on health & wellness, natural solutions, and ways to detoxify your life (and not putting toxic /carcinogenic products on your skin is  a huge part of that).
