On our family's journey for optimal brain + gut health, we were surprised to discover... optimal brain + gut health wasn't just about nutrition (which is vital) but also included WHAT you place on your body!!! Here's a few 'greenish' beauty recipes I have discovered along our journey... hope you enjoy + share + drop any recipes You may have in your cupboard.
The more you know, the more you can grow... right?
Here's a sweet DIY all-natural blush recipe... it made sense to try it, since beets always leave a nice subtle hue to my skin when handling + beet root powder is used in the culinary world to "pink" dishes up!
So. Here you go, love!
DRY SHAMPOO RECIPE
I always joke how I am "held together with Jesus, coffee + dry shampoo"!
And let's be completely real... it's no joke! Here's an über simple way to make your own dry shampoo (+ bonus it actually works!).

CRACKED HEEL SALVE RECIPE
Now. I don't like to waste bananas... for some reason, it's different than a wee bit of honey or a lemon or even an egg. I have no idea why. Maybe it's because a WHOLE banana is a snack for the Gillies, our 4yr old twins.
Anywho. Here's a recipe I found to help smooth those cracked heels
BERRY BODY SCRUB
Here's a sweet DIY all-natural body scrub recipe... it made sense to try it, since blueberries are known for being loaded with antioxidants which is great for the skin + the sugar is an excellent exfoliator. I like to add a wee bit of lavender essential oil to give it a relaxing-spa-like vibe.
EYE MAKE REMOVER RECIPE
Honestly. When writing this blog, I almost "skipped" this question. Seriously, though... "almonds in my beauty regimen, how in the heck?" Buttttttttttt... then I realized, I do use almonds in my beauty regimen. Well, it's almond oil. That counts, right? Almond oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the sweet almond tree (thank you, Essential Oils book!). Almond oil is suitable for most skin types... it's gentle enough for sensitive skin!
