Well, making a homemade foaming cleanser it’s easy and does not require you too many ingredients, but the thing I most like about making homemade cosmetics it’s to be able to personalize them to my personal needs.

Are Homemade Cosmetics Safe? Yes, If You Preserve Them Properly!

conservanti

If you’ve been following my blog or my youtube tutorials for a while, well, you know that I am deeply convinced that our skin is the one and only measure of our health. But in order to keep our skin looking healthy we have to make sure that our homemade cosmetics are safe for our skin and in order to be sure they are safe for our skin, we have to make sure to preserve them properly. Every single day we have at hand so many vegetables, fruit, herbs, oils and many other foods that not only may nourish our insides, but also may hydrate, moisturize and beautify us on the outside. There are still so many people out there not realizing the benefits of natural skin care ingredients, ingredients that one has in his own kitchen or may find at the nearest market. Our ancestors used natural remedies for skin care for centuries to effectively treat and cure so many skin problems and to slow down the aging process. Unfortunately, year after year we entrusted ourselves to the cosmetic industry which doesn’t always have our best interest at heart. If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you ‚Ķ Continue reading

Herbal infused oil: Organic Coconut Oil infused with Lavender & Vanilla – DIY Solid Perfume Stick & Balm

SOLID PERFUME LAVENDER VANILLA COCONUT OIL

I’ve been waiting for this moment for the past 40 days and I can finally share with you this amazing, marvelously scented herbal infused coconut oil with lavender and vanilla beans. Why did I have to wait for 40 days? ūüėČ ¬†Keep reading and you’ll understand why ūüôā If you are new to the herbal infused oil concept, well, herbal oils are obtained by soaking dried or fresh herbs in a pure vegetable-based oil such as sunflower, olive or almond oil or a mix of vegetable oils which will allow the fat-soluble parts of the herb to be extracted. The result you’ll get may be used externally as a massage oil, or as bases for creams, ointments, salves and balms or as you will see, if you keep reading, as a handmade 100% natural solid perfume stick ūüėČ There are various methods to make herb infused oils, the¬†hot¬†infusion method (which is also pretty quick, around 4 hours) and the¬†cold¬†infusion method, which I fully recommend and use. It’s good for exercising your patience ūüėõ as it requires up to 30 – 40 days to extract the active principles from the plant. Some herbs work better with one type of infusion than ‚Ķ Continue reading

DIY Lip Scrubs, Parabens free, for Smooth and Kissable lips

DIY EDIBLE LIP SCRUBS

I thought it was high time, as seen that autumn is almost here, I shared with you some easy and yummy lip scrubs, skin safe and totally free from parabens, mineral oils and other chemical stuff that most of the commercial lip scrubs and balms contain. If you’ve already read the “About me” page, you probably already know that I encourage you to stop poisoning yourself with all the chemicals, silicons, parabens & preservatives most of the conventional cosmetics contain and to learn how to read the labels in order to become an aware and empowered consumer. To my full disappointment, I still see on the internet and on youtube DIYs containing pure petroleum jelly or vaseline, ¬†a¬†fossil fuel product that you are “advised” to apply on your lips and skin! :/ What?!? Well, if you did ¬†not know, petroleum jelly or vaseline is not really a skin moisturizer. It only acts as a barrier when applied on the skin reinforcing the moisture that is already present in the skin by trapping it within. Did you know that The European Union’s Dangerous Substances Directive (UNECE 2004) lists petrolatum as a “probable human carcinogen” and is banned for all personal care ‚Ķ Continue reading

Raw Vegan Broccoli salad with dried raisins and goji berries for a healthy looking skin!

raw broccoli salad

Are you in love with broccoli? Well, I am ūüėČ ! Especially now that thanks to this delicious raw vegan broccoli salad I’ve discovered that I can eat it either cooked or raw! This tasty vegetable is¬†rich in dozens of nutrients, like¬†vitamin C,¬†vitamin A¬†(mostly as beta-carotene),¬†folic acid,¬†calcium, and in dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, anti-oxidants and phyto- chemicals and has so¬†many health benefits for us among which: ¬†cancer prevention, cholesterol reduction,¬†a less acidic body,¬†aid in digestion, prevention of constipation, maintaining a low blood sugar, promoting bone and heart health and so many other health benefits. Just to give a short example, already a good amount of years ago, the¬†Johns Hopkins University published a cancer study showing that broccoli prevented the development of tumors by 60 percent and helped reduce the size of the tumor by 75 percent. I strongly believe that eating healthy foods can help me & you fight acne, minimize wrinkles¬†and get back to a¬†glowing, healthy, and radiant skin. That’s why I’m trying day by day to find a balance in my diet and to eat as much raw foods as possible. Well, the day I discovered that I like raw broccoli¬†as much as cooked broccoli, was a happy ‚Ķ Continue reading
