Why You Need Lip Scrubs (plus 4 recipes)


chocolatelipscrub2

I always used to think that lip scrubs sounded a little silly.

They seemed like something you would only use on a rare occasion when you want to pamper yourself, not as a regular addition to your beauty routine. But that was before I realized how many benefits they offered, especially if you are trying to transition into a more natural beauty routine.

  • Lip scrubs eliminate the need to use chapstick or other toxin filled products. This is because they help your lips retain moisture, which leads to the healing and even prevention of chapped or cracked lips.
  • Lip scrubs make your lips look prettier. They remove the dead and flaky skin, which allows the soft, smooth skin hiding underneath to show.
  • Because lip scrubs smooth out your skin, the cosmetics you apply will last longer
  • Lip scrubs bring out your natural lip color, giving you the option of skipping cosmetics completely on days you want to go more natural.

So to sum up, they make lips look better, feel better, help you avoid toxins, and save you a lot of money on beauty products. That’s a win win win win! I’ve been using them regularly for the past few months, and I can see a huge difference in the health and appearance of the skin on my lips!  (more…)

Garage Soup (Bone Broth for Leaky Gut)

Every member of my immediate family has an autoimmune disease, including me.
There are quite a few things that probably caused our health problems, but I suspect that the biggest one is something called leaky gut syndrome. Sounds icky right….its not something I usually proclaim to the whole world that I have, even though it is very common (you probably have it too!) Basically, if you have any kind of autoimmune disease, you have leaky gut. And if you have any other physical health problem, you probably have leaky gut. Hippocrates was right when he said “all disease begins in the gut.”
If you haven’t heard of leaky gut, it simply means that the lining of my intestines aren’t doing a very good job at holding everything in, and some of the substances passing through them LEAK OUT into my bloodstream. AHHHH!!!! Then my body says, what the heck is this stuff?! and starts attacking the substances, and my healthy tissues! If you want to do your own research and get a much more professional explanation (as well as a list of symptoms that might indicate you have leaky gut) this is a great place to start!

35 Uses for Coconut Oil

The last time I went to the grocery store, I bought three giant tubs of coconut oil. As I was setting them down at the checkout line, the lady behind me tapped me on the shoulder and asked “So….what do you use coconut oil FOR?” She had never heard of it before, and had no clue why I would need so much. I didn’t even know where to begin. I couldn’t even think where to start so I finally replied “Ummm…everything.”

I’m not kidding when I say its good for everything. Calling this stuff versatile would be a huge understatement. When I discover things like this it blows my mind that God could create something so useful for so many different things.

The best thing about essential oils is how beneficial they are to our bodies. We apply them to our skin every day to support different body systems like immune, digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, circulatory….I could go on and on, but basically any part of your body can benefit from the use of essential oils.

I have also used essential oils to make our home free from chemicals that can harm our health. I am on a mission to replace all of my home cleaners and personal care products with safe, natural alternatives that work just as well, if not better, than store bought products.
