What does your Sunday afternoon look like? Hopefully the beach or something sunny for this holiday weekend! #jkinstachallenge#memorialdayweekend#plantlady
It's getting to be that time of year! And the bugs, especially the ticks, have been bad. Put your mind at ease with this easy to make insect repellent! I put 10 drops each of peppermint, thieves, citronella, purification, and Rosemary. Then a pinch of salt to help it dissolve and fill the rest of your glass spray bottle with water! #easypeasy#nomorebugs 🐜 🚫🐜🚫🐜🚫🐜🚫🐜🚫
***head on over to my Facebook group to be entered in a giveaway for a FREE citronella oil! https://www.facebook.com/groups/essentialoilsrockstars/
Something is blooming today that's driving me nuts! Sneezing, itchy nose, the works. And it's putting a damper on my long weekend. Thank god for these two oils! Did you know Lavender acts as a natural antihistamine and can help combat the symptoms of springtime blooms? Yep! And oh work #FAST ! Since I don't have my roller with me I just dabbed a bit of Lavender directly under my nose, and layered it with a dab of Breathe to help clear my sinuses. The relief is literally instant and I feel so much better. The cool thing is, when the symptoms start coming back I do it again, it takes two seconds, and I feel better immediately. I #LOVE having these #allnatural and #chemicalfree tools at my fingertips. #winning ! .

Drinking an iced tea with a drop of Tangerine Vitality™ to give me a bright citrus flavor without any sugar or synthetic flavors.

#weed I don't talk about this stuff enough... But I feel as though it is time! The more hush I am about it, the more "weird" it may seem to you, and I want the people in my life to understand that it's not and shouldn't be.
#marijuana changed my life for the better. I can get through my days without throwing up, shaking uncontrollably, or passing out. I can eat without hesitation. I have motivation to make positive changes. I have confidence in myself as a human... As a woman... As a person. Marijuana didn't GIVE that to me, but it helped me to want to get it for myself.... Different experience for everyone, but I hope you'll at least have a positive outlook on it. I don't think everyone needs to try it or whatever, but I do think that those that do shouldn't be demonized for it. It's a plant, man. I'm also"normal" with a "normal" job as an accountant. I do alright.
And yes, it kills cancer cells and prevents them from emerging in the first place. It's also a great alternative to the shit pharmaceuticals prescribed to many (Xanax, Prozac, Zoloft...etc) for anxiety, stress, and depression. 🙌🙌🍁💨 also, my boyfriend got me this really cute, #nontoxic nail polish 😍 and there's another #cattail
Because it's a beautiful Sunday morning on a holiday weekend! Peppermint is my favorite pick me up oil, the best for cooling off after a day in the heat, or the perfect fix for some occasional head tension!

Getting to know Alexis was very interesting, especially as we had so many things in common. In the first weeks we met every day and discussed and compared things from our worlds. Still, I was wondering how it was possible that only I could see and communicate with her. We only talked when there were no people close by as it must seem weird to see a girl talking to herself in dialogue. However, this beautiful tiny little creature taught me so many interesting things… #asstorytime#fairytaleskincare#natural#skincare#pure#nontoxic 📷: @liz_beinhoff

Happy Sunday, friends! New post is on the blog all about dermarolling and microneedling for scarring and pigmentation! You guys have been asking for this post for a LONG time, but I wanted to wait until I had been using my dermaroller for a long enough time (6 months) to really be able to give an accurate review! Skin changes take months to really show. I always make sure to use a Vitamin C serum like the Beautycounter Rejuvenating Serum and the No. 1 Brightening Oil, as well as a really good nontoxic sunscreen, like the Beautycounter Face Stick, in conjunction with my dermaroller to get the best results. Head to my blog for the full post!

Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends! If you've been on the fence about jumping in to a life of natural wellness, now's your time! 👏🏼

Wat Arun really took #allgoldeverything to a new level, don't you think? 🏆🏵⚜️ A new blog post is up on MSG - the excitotoxin in pretty much all processed food - and it's definitely worth checking out! 📎Link is in my bio!
This is how much waste we would be producing for manicure with gelpolish :(
That's just per client!!
Imagine how much of these would be ending up in a trash can at busy salons in your city..
Busy salon (6 technicians)
5 clients / 1 technician
5 clients x 6 technicians = 30
30 of these will be produced DAILY!
30 x 1year(312days) = 9360
However, we can reduce them dramatically (2nd picture) just by replacing some items
1. Kitchen papers > washable cloth
2. Disposable gaze > baby cloth
3. Facial pad > donated cloth
4. Aluminum foil > silicone reusable cap
5. Hand soaking water > use them for cleaning purpose ( we use baking soda for soak so it's actually perfect for cleaning!)
6. Disposable file > diamond file
7. Disposable buffer > washable buffer
Another good news is after July, thanks for the new technology, our waste per gel service will be what's on the 3rd picture!
Details will be updated soon
One little idea could change a world :)
Wellness and environment should not be compromised for beauty
Diffusion is the easiest and simplest way of putting a fine mist of the whole oil into the air for inhalation is to use a cool air nebulizing diffuser.
When used in this manner, the oils will remain suspended for several hours,to freshen and improve the quality of the air
The antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties of the oils, kill bacteria and help reduce fungus and mold. *1 *1 "Modern Essentials" pg. 60
Essential oils are available from my website:
Kimberly Laird shared this, and my jaw is on the floor with the opening statistic 😢 "Stay at home moms and women who work from home are 54% more likely to die from cancer than women who don't work from home." Let that sink in. This stat has me like 😳🤦🏻♀️😡 We are home working hard cooking, cleaning, taxiing kids, keeping people alive and trying to stay sane. All the while, we're slowly killing ourselves with the toxins we've brought into our homes and the stress that we feel to measure up. Mamas, we have a seriously hard job and SO many choices to make! We are all just doing our best! I know it's easy to 🙄 the whole movement of living "clean" and eating organic, to take aim at the mama who goes to great lengths to avoid toxins and processed foods. She's crazy or paranoid or trying too hard. Hey, maybe you cheer her on but it just isn't your thing! There is no shame in this mama game however it is that you roll, but doing better for our kids needs to be all of our thing.
When they lower their standards for the products that can be sold, we have to raise the bar on educating ourselves and making informed choices! We have to know better and do better for ourselves and our kids.
In one study, over 800 of the nearly 3000 (tested) chemicals we find in our personal care products (that we rub all over ourselves and our kids every. darn. day.) were found to be toxic. This is an uphill battle! These chemicals are straight-up banned in other countries.
Here are just a handful of things these toxic chemicals may cause: + interrupt our hormone production
+ cause acute toxicity + cause biological mutations
+ skin and eye irritations
+ respiratory issues
+ cause cancer
Here are just a few places you'll find these things in your home: + household cleaners + shampoo, conditioner, baby wash + lotions and creams
+ sunscreen and bug spray + scented candles + make up
It's scary how normal it's become to slap buzz words like "clean" or "organic" or "natural" on toxic-soup products just to market them to mamas who are trying to do their best! So what do we do? We educate ourselves!
this is what #breakfast ? looks like this morning lol🤷🏼♀️ I try and feed my body the nutrients it needs to heal, and this is what it was askin for this morning :). also, the protein from the 🍗 & the #drizzy of: olive oil, avo oil, ACV, lemon, & salt provides the healthy fats that help my body to start the day off thriving & satiated🤓 happy #mdw !!!💚 #veggiesforbreakfast#justthewayiyam
