Face those Holiday Events with spa confidence

The holiday season is here and we have a little gift for all of you. A simple but very soothing and rejuvenating facial treatment to help us all look our best.

Time is most precious with so much going on this time of year. A trip to the spa is most certainly out of the question. Our gift to you can give you that spa treatment right in the comfort of your own home.

The recipe consists of only two items that you probably have in your kitchen right now. You will need ½ of a banana, a ½ cup of plain yogurt, and a blender. Place the ½ banana and ½ cup of yogurt in the blender and mix until you have a smooth and creamy mix. Once you have the mix ready, spread the mix over your facial area. Allow the creamy mix to sit for 20 minutes. When your 20 minutes are up, gently wipe the mix off with a warm, damp wash cloth.

The bananas and yogurt are chocked full of anti-oxidants and lactic acid that help rejuvenate your skin helping you face all of those holiday events.

Happy Holidays!

Learning about Lip Balm…..Why should you use it during the Winter?

Lip Balm can be one of the most effective tools in fighting the elements, especially during the winter months.  There are many choices when you are researching lip balms.  A couple of factors to keep in mind, when looking for the right choice, are environment and use.  The ingredients contained within the tube are very important to help you choose the right one for you.

Our environment can be very harsh on our lips.  Cold, windy, and dry environments cause damage to our lips before we notice.  The cold temperatures cause our lips to lose moisture at a rapid pace and the wind amplifies the drying effect.  Lip Balm allows us to protect our lips. It provides a barrier that keeps environmental elements out and keeps moisture in.
Using lip balm is the best way to fight against cold, windy weather during the winter months.  Selecting the right lip balm to fight these elements is crucial. Our lip balm is made from 100% all natural ingredients with this purpose in mind.

The ingredients in our Cool Breeze lip balm are beeswax, almond oil, coconut oil, pure peppermint essential oil and menthol crystals.  These ingredients provide many benefits to our clients.  Beeswax is one of the main ingredients and it has been shown to have healing, softening, and antiseptic benefits as well as providing the barrier to keep the cold, drying effects of winter away.  Coconut oil gives the lip balm the essential moisturizing effect, helping give our lips that full, beautiful appearance.  Almond oil is the perfect compliment to coconut oil and aids in moisturizing your lips.  Pure peppermint essential oil has been used in treating such skin conditions as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.  The healing effects this essential oil offers are second to none. Menthol Crystals used in a topical form, such as lip balm, help to cool and refresh.  This cooling benefit is especially evident when eating spicy foods.

Many Benefits of Shea Butter

The cold weather season has started and it is amazing how quickly your skin shows the effects of the dry air inside and cold air outside.  Shea butter is an excellent ingredient for dealing with winter skin.
Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the Shea tree native to Africa.  Pure all natural Shea butter is cold pressed so it is free of harsh chemicals.   A great moisturizer containing both Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
Vitamin A is well know for its healing properties which makes Vitamin A rich shea butter excellent for treating a wide range of skin issues from eczema to insect bites.  
Everyday our skin is exposed to extremes in temperature and humidity levels, so bathing it in a shea butter rich lotion is a must for pampered winter skin.
Shea Butter will provide improvement in all the conditions listed below. As you use this multi-purpose cream you are likely to discover additional uses. The amount of time required for optimum results with various conditions may vary with each condition. Wrinkles, for example, require 4 to 6 weeks of daily use. Itching is relieved immediately.
1. Dry skin
02. skin rash
03. Skin peeling, after tanning
04. Blemishes and wrinkles
05. Itching skin

The fantastic benefits of Cocoa Butter

We use Cocoa Butter in all of our handcrafted cold process soaps. Why? Well we are so glad you asked!
Dry skin exists unfortunately, so Mother Nature gave us pure natural Cocoa Butter which aids in slowing down moisture loss. Cocoa Butter is renowned worldwide for its hydrating effects.
Gentle yet rich in Vitamin E and a number of other vitamins and minerals. It helps to soothe, hydrate and balance the skin.
For those of us in our wonderfully exciting “Mature Years’ Cocoa Butter provides collagen which assists with minimizing wrinkles and other signs of aging - but shhhhhh, we won’t tell if you won’t!
This exquisite natural moisturizer melts at the temperature of the human body allowing it to be quickly absorbed into your skin. (Dry skin say it with us - AHHHHHHHH)
Now we put our birthday suits ‘out there’ everyday, exposing it to goodness knows what in the environment and cocoa butter comes to our rescue with wonderful antioxidants that help protect that one of a kind (you don’t get another ya know) Birthday suit.
Who knew that little cacao bean could be used to soothe our senses in so many ways - Chocolate for our taste buds and cocoa butter for our skin.
