Neck Scrubs

Filed under: Oil Blends For Beauty, Skincare — Administrator @ 9:17 am

Stumble it!

Anyone at anytime get a little extra buildup of excessive dead skin cells around the neck.

When I was a kid growing up, it was a common advertisement to hear – “Ring a Round the Collar, Ring around the collar”. Of course, it was geared to men wearing those ‘white collared’ stiffly pressed shirts. And trying to remove the stains from the clothing. But then again, where did the stains come from? You got it the dead skins sloughing off your skin around the neck.

This simple scrub can be used by both men, women, children and anyone that has a neck!!

Take one tablespoon oatmeal (quick cooking is best or you should run the other kinds through a blender) and add 1-2 teaspoons Jojoba . Mix and stir together until you get sort of a paste. Use this to rub onto your neck. Using an upward stroke. Be sure to protect your clothing or wear an old tee shirt while ‘scrubbing’ or scrub your neck while in the shower. This is a very gentle way to rid your skin of dead cells.

So, if your neck looks grubby after your tan has worn off, and you’re tired of always wearing turtle necks. Maybe it’s time for a good neck scrubbing. After rinsing this scrub off, be sure to apply a light Moisturizer or other lotion.

To your neck scrub you can add a drop or two of Essential Oil of your choice. The skin of the neck though may respond best to the following: Rose Otto , Palmarosa, Geranium , Clary-Sage, <Petitgrain, Lemon, Lemongrass, Carrotseed , or Orange .

The above Essential Oils can be added to your regular night cleansing cream (remember you can use any lotion as a cleansing cream or our Sorbolene Cream is also great from cleansing – just dilute with a little distilled water).

Just wipe off the excess creams or lotions after a few minutes.

Royal Jelly Face Lift

Filed under: Oil Blends For Beauty, Skincare — Administrator @ 12:34 am

Stumble it!

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999).

I once bought active royal bee jelly for a Skincare formula I was making, and decided to feel what it felt like on my face, so I massaged a small amount into my skin.

In a few minutes I noticed my skin tightening. I decided to go look in the mirror, and low and behold I looked like I had just had a face lift! While putting royal jelly on straight is too tightening to wear comfortably for very long, I formulated a royal jelly face lift cream that feels good and gives the look of a face lift too! Here is the formula:

The Royal Jelly Facelift Cream

This easy skin cream only takes 25 minutes to make! Use active royal jelly available in health food stores.

  • 2 1/2 ounces blended oils (see “What are the Best Oils for Your Skin,” below)
  • 1 1/2 ounces coconut oil or cocoa butter
  • 1/2 ounce Beeswax
  • 4 ounces distilled or purified water
  • 2-3 teaspoon active royal jelly
  • 30 drops Grapefruit seed extract (available in health food stores)
  • Essential Oils of choice (optional)

Weigh the coconut oil and Beeswax on a scale. Combine the oils and Beeswax in a double boiler, and melt over a low heat, stirring occasionally. This step takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the melted oils and Beeswax from the stove and add the water. Mix with an electric mixer until creamy and thick. Stir in the Grapefruit seed extract and Essential Oils (if using). Store in glass jars with screw-on tops. Makes 8 ounces of cream.

Note: This cream should last for 4 months or so, but if you see mold growing, discard. When you make kitchen cosmetics, cleanliness is really important so bacteria doesn’t grow. Purified or distilled water is used in this recipe because bacteria has been filtered out.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes

What are the Best Oils for Your Skin? The only way to find the best oils for your skin is to go to a health food store and buy a variety and see how they feel. Your skin will “tell” you when you have found the best ones for you. Join with some friends for this experiment, and share the cost.

Here are some suggested oils to try: Almond oil; Apricot Kernel oil (great for sensitive and older skin); Avocado oil (one of the most moisturizing oils and good for older skin); cocoa butter (protective and water repellent); Grapeseed oil (a dry oil, good so the cream isn’t too greasy); Jojoba (actually a liquid wax and good to use so the cream isn’t too greasy); peanut oil (good for all skin types); Sesame oil (natural sunscreen); Shea butter (natural sunscreen); and wheat germ oil (high in Vitamins and Minerals).

Testimonials

‘I just wanted to let you know how much I love your StretchEasy Massage Oil. Not only is my skin looking better than ever but I love the smell of the oil so much that I’m going to keep using it long after I’m back at my pre-Pregnancy weight!’ Debbie.

‘Thank you for your excellent Stretch Mark remedies! I have been prone to Stretch Marks since I was a teenager and seemed to get new ones every time I lost or gained even a few pounds. I was worried that after my Pregnancy I would end up completely covered in these unsightly stripes so I used the Natural Eco StretchEasy Formula and StretchEasy Massage Oil religiously. Not only is my belly still relatively free of Stretch Marks after almost the full 9 months, but even those Stretch Marks that I already had have faded and look much better than before I was Pregnant!’ Theresa, NC

What else is important?

There are a number of things you can do to maintain the integrity and health of your skin and prevent Stretch Marks that are so common in Pregnancy.

1. The first step is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. You should not diet at all during Pregnancy but remember you don’t really need to eat for two either! It is best to monitor your weight gain and try not to exceed the recommendations that your doctor will have discussed with you. You should gain weight steadily throughout the 9 months of Pregnancy- a total of between 25 and 35 pounds. This way, you will not only ensure optimal nutritional health but your skin will also have a chance to stretch gradually rather than suddenly increasing in size thereby creating Stretch Marks.

2. It is also important to drink plenty of water to keep your skin and whole body well-hydrated. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to all types of damage and scarring.

3. Remember that once you have given birth you are still at risk for getting Stretch Marks due to the rapid loss of weight. Keep up with all your good habits at least until you are back at your approximate pre-Pregnancy weight and do not try to Lose Weight too suddenly by crash Dieting. Breastfeeding is a good way to Lose Weight steadily and, contrary to what some people tell you, will not cause Stretch Marks!

4. Use StretchEasy Massage Oil in combination with our internal StretchEasy Formula for optimum skin health and maximum protection from Stretch Marks.

StretchEasy Massage Oil is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. Individual ingredients are well-researched, natural, safe and effective.

StretchEasy Massage Oil is backed by our 60-day money-back guarantee so you can experience relief risk-free.

Make Your Own Bubble Bath

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health, Body Care — Administrator @ 1:52 pm

Stumble it!

By Abigail Beal (PioneerThinking.com)

Indulge yourself and make your own bubble bath. Wouldnt it be nice to relax into a bubble bath that youd created? Making bubble bath is simple & fun. They can also make wonderful gifts for friends and loved ones for the holidays or other special occasions.

The ingredients used to make bubble bath can be found in most large grocery stores or health food stores. You can also find all of the ingredients online. They are inexpensive.

One of the benefits of making your own bubble bath is that you know exactly what is in it. If you are allergic to anything, you can be certain it is not in your bubble bath.

Another benefit to making your own bubble bath is that you know all of the ingredients are fresh and natural. There is no concern about a product that was left on the shelf for months. Another benefit is that you can be certain that your product is environmentally conscious and that it does not promote animal testing.

Bubble bath is a wonderful inexpensive way to treat yourself. Supplies are easy to find and you can create a bubble bath suited exactly to your personal tastes and needs.

An important ingredient in bubble bath is Essential Oil. Essential Oils add the scent to your bubble bath. Use these sparingly, as you only need to use several drops to get a pleasant effect. Many Essential Oils should not be ingested orally, so be sure to read the directions. There are also some Essential Oils such as Marjoram that should never be used by Pregnant women. You can research any Essential Oil at the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy www.naha.org. Also look in aromatherapy books and ask questions at the health food store when buying Essential Oils.

Some Essential Oils are known to be relaxing and soothing. The most popular include Lavender, Sandalwood, Marjoram, Frankincense, Myrrh, Rosewood and Chamomile. These Essential Oils will calm you down, relax you and help you go to sleep.

Other Essential Oils will Uplift and energize you. Peppermint, Spearmint, Eucalyptus and Lemon oil are all oils that will brighten your day and are good to use during the day. Eucalyptus oil is especially good if you have a cold because it will break up your Colds congestion.

To soften your skin, consider adding either coconut or Almond oil to your bubble bath concoctions. Coconut oil has a wonderful nutty and floral fragrance to it. Almond oil is virtually unscented. Adding a half a cup of either Almond oil or coconut oil to your bubble bath will soften your skin tremendously. This is a great addition for your bubble baths for the winter months.

Store your bubble baths in a nonbreakable container. The materials you use to make bubble baths can keep for awhile. You can store your bubble bath on a shelf in your bathroom or bedroom for easy access.

Personalized bubble baths make an excellent gift. You can find many decorative plastic containers at your local art store. For decorative effect you can add either marbles or seashells to the bottom of the container. If you are giving bubble bath to a child or teenager, consider adding a small amount of glitter. Do not add food coloring because it can stain people temporarily. Tie your container with a pretty bow or even a piece of tulle.

When giving bubble bath as a gift, consider adding some other bath related items. Give bath mitts or a big yellow rubber duck. Your friend or loved one will appreciate such a thoughtful and personalized gift.

Whether you are making your bubble bath for yourself or for someone special your bubble bath is really a treat to enjoy. Here are some recipes for bubble baths to inspire you and to get your started:
