Beauty

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? 

BLUSH RECIPE

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!).  

Hashtag:  You are welcome. 

 

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!
