A Few of My Favourite Things – at a discount!
In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been – I’ve been involved in a somewhat David and Goliath struggle to try to keep a mega quarry out of our neighbourhood – so far to no avail unfortunately.
As the end is near, it does mean that I can return my efforts to my own ‘stuff’, like Skincare Naturals! Yayyy!
So to kick off one of my favourite seasons and to welcome everyone back, I’ve extended the store wide discount coupon to Sunday April 21, 2013.
I thought you might enjoy reading about a few of my every day favourite things that I find myself reaching for.
The one thing that they all have in common?
They are all natural, single ingredient items and they are simple to use.
A SUBTLE GLOW
I like to use a little dab of Olive Oil Squalane, LSC Botanical Extract, Organic Golden Jojoba, Kukui Nut or Grapeseed Oil on my face (these are all light and absorb fairly quickly), either as a moisturizer straight out of the shower or under make up if I wear it.
Using just a little in the dry areas gives a subtle glow without clogging the pores. The secret is to use a little and do not glob it onto the entire face. I also give it time to soak in before getting dressed to reduce the chance of oil stains on my clothes and to let it absorb before applying any make up.
Quick Tip: For glowing skin from the inside – one green smoothie per day! It makes a huge difference. Also eating raw fruit or veggies when possible – as a quick snack or with your meal. And walk or work up a sweat once a day!
Cat pee is one of those scents that is hard to get rid of.
Tinosan SDC Antimicrobial works! I am a cat owner myself and have used it often.
It also works on pet odours, to clean your bathroom, garbage odours and as a preservative in your homemade skincare products.
An all around fantastic item to have around the house. (of course, as always – keep out of reach of children!)
IN THE BATH – ON THE LIPS – USE AS IS!
Another favourite for it’s flexibility and ease of use is our old stand by - Unrefined Cocoa Butter!
I love to throw a chunk in the bath for instant bath oil that cleans off of the bath tub fairly easily and I also love to use it as a quick lip balm – it melts at body temperature so applies quite nicely.
Of course, special precautions need to be taken if you are carrying it around in your purse or your car mid summer! Also watch the bath – it will make it slippery.
Another of my all time favourites for the bath (not the lips!) is Monoi de Tahiti – I used to purchase this years before going ‘natural’ as a bath oil. Words cannot describe the luxury of this naturally scented oil in the bath!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
Pure Essential Oils – it could be any one of them depending on the day and my mood!
I love to use a few drops in a spray bottle with some water – give it a quick shake and you can clean with it, deodorize or scent a room quickly and pleasantly.
I also add a few drops to my unscented dish and laundry soap, add a drop or two to my sleeve on my way out the door to perk up my morning or stash a scented cotton ball under my pillow at bedtime for pleasant dreams.
