Centuries of Research

on the uses and effectiveness of essential oils helps us to understand what they are and how they work..

Lavender

is calming and soothing. It may be used aromatically, topically, or in some cases, internally.

Most Essential Oils

are safe for the whole family to use. Be sure to dilute oils when used topically, especially for small children and infants.

Essential Oils

are aromatic plant compounds, extracted from the leaves, bark and flowers of specific plants.

Our Lavender

is sourced from France, where it grows indigenously in optimal climate conditions.



DIY Facial Scrub

Did you know that the microbeads inherent in many commercial facial exfoliating products wash down the drain and end up in our environment? Where, they can absorb toxins and even be ingested by fish or other wildlife. Pretty alarming, huh?

Many people are turning to more natural alternatives to commercial beauty and cleaning products specifically because of the environmental impact.  I buy mineral makeup and essential oil based lotions, cleansers and moisturizing beauty creams, and I also like to make my own products, both for my own use and to give as gifts.

Salt and sugar scrubs are great for exfoliating your hands and feet, but may be too harsh to use on delicate facial skin, according to the advice I received from a professional aesthetician that I know and trust.  So if you would like to replace your store-bought facial scrub with something that is better for you and easier on your pocketbook, try making your own DIY facial scrub, using the recipe below.

1 tbsp baking soda

Lightly massage paste onto skin to gently exfoliate the face for a couple of minutes and rinse off.
