The Beauty of Lemongrass (Our New Handmade Artisan Soap Bar).

The making of my newest artisan lemongrass essential oil and clay soap was a delight and an accomplishment for me. Essential oil blending not as easy at it may sound. Although I enjoy many phthalate free scents, my true love is blending essential oils. I look forward to my ever growing essential oil spa-bar line. Essential oil bars work best on my skin and most everyone else's too. That's why we create so many varieties, because everyone likes something a little different. We have something for everyone. Over the years we have had requests for lemongrass and citrus scented soap bars but have found those particular oils a bit more challenging...

Great question! So, what do the women who formulate skincare products for a living rely on for gorgeous skin? I started formulating skincare some years back when I couldn't find a strong enough cream that was natural. I wanted a day cream that also worked for my skin type- sensitive! I love natural, but there are some phytonutrients that are more powerful and give better results than others. I like the ones with the highest GLA's. I had researched for many years before I came to the best regimen and formula for skin care that gives that synergistic potent balancing...

Vegan & Vegetarian Thanksgiving Ideas

Okay, so I watched Cowspiracy and decided that I should continue to avoid meat for sure. If you haven't watched it yet- you should. I am naturally not a "milk and eggs person" so the idea of being vegan isn't too far of a stretch for me. I have always liked fruits and veggies. I come from a Spanish and Italian background, and I am not going to lie- that food tastes good! It's true. I agree and let's be honest. You've probably had vegan/vegetarian dishes served up that were "healthy" and "good for you" yet, tasted like door knobs. I...

Water, Your Cells, and Carcinogens

I know we are supposed to drink a lot of water but how much? I decided to read up on our supposed daily water intake and see if I could learn the truth. Turns out our bodies are made up of more than 60% water. Our blood is made up of 92% water. The brain and muscles are 75% water, and our bones are about 22% water. We can't survive more than a few days without water. We need to drink between 8 cups to 2.2 liters a day (9 cups) if you're female and a3 liters ( 13 cups) if you're...
