Healing Beauty Mist

IMG_3031

One of the biggest and most impactful changes that I made to my health was when I detoxed my beauty products. Through my own personal study of health, I quickly learned how important it was for me to take a look at what I was putting on my skin.

Many of the chemicals found in your over-the-counter beauty elixirs can wreak havoc on your health. Research has shown that there are certain chemicals that may cause long-term, gradual changes to your health with hormonal imbalances being one of them. Repeated exposures can even cause you to develop an allergy.

This recipe calls for Aloe Vera Juice and Witch Hazel. Both are readily available at most health stores and they have the ability to soothe, refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Rose Water is full of antioxidants, decreases inflammation and also has the ability hydrate the skin.

I’m in love with essential oils and I have found pure grade, organic essential oils critical to my beauty care. My three favorites are:

Frankincense, which may help to reduce the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenate the skin. And both geranium and lavender, which have soothing abilities for occasional skin irritations and may reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.

Healing Beauty Mist
2 parts distilled or clean filtered water
1 part medicinal aloe vera juice and/or witch hazel
1 part rose water
2-3 drops of pure essential oils such as lavender, frankincense or geranium

Mix all ingredients in a small, dark glass spray bottle. Spray onto face after freshly washing your skin, after sun exposure or to hydrate your skin throughout the day!

Potpourri

Growing up, my mother would have potpourri all over the house.  In the living room, bedrooms and the bathroom.  I’ll admit, they sure did smell good. But, knowing what I know now, the perfumes were likely synthetic and toxic.
