Rose Rose I Love You! (And why not?..)

I have been using only Rose Damask hydrosol as my facial toner for more than a decade! Long gone are the days of choosing the various toners for my skin, comparing brands and prices and finally, after many unused bottles … Continue reading

Elly’s wholesome birthday presents!

Hey folks!
This is kinda overdue, I know..

My bestie Elly had her big-new-digit-at-the-front birthday on 29th Jan so instead of scrambling to the malls and cracking my head to think of birthday presents, I made some natural and organic products for her. Less headache for me really, as I often feel the need to give my 2 best friends at least 2 presents each. She is a workaholic chef, and running a kitchen’s working conditions are not surprisingly taking a toll on her skin. That and she needs to STOP drinking Red Bull and have ample sleep.

So here they are:

1. 15ml AromaDynamic face elixir made from: organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, jojoba, wheatgerm, lemon, frankincense, lavender, geranium and few other essential oils. I forgot to snap a shot of the ingredients list, sorry. Anyway, it smells so dynamic! Just like her.. Hence the name. Beneficial for tired and devitalized skin like we all have from time to time especially tanned and darker skin like ours.

2. 30ml AromaDynamic face lotion: has almost the same essential oils and more but on a premium lotion base with cocoa butter, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, jojoba and Vitamin E. Its aim is to energize and rejuvenate the skin, moisturizing it amply but lightly. Excellent for fine lines and in providing radiance to the skin too.

3. 5ml Relief Roll On: She likes my Breathe Again™ Essential Oil Roll-On  from Young Living, so I made her a simpler one consisting of: organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, jojoba, eucalyptus radiata, eucalyptus globulus, peppermint and lavender. This ought to ward off her headaches and stuffy nose issues. I suspect too that she will be finishing this faster than the facial products. Pffft.

Elly and her 3 new friends. 🙂

 

When I am feeling like a (good) witch, I stir and stir and create these!

Its barely the end of January and I am all pumped up with a renewed passion. Truth is, I know I should’ve pick this up again some time ago already but oh well, the Horse year favors the movers and shakers and the get-up-and-out individuals so it is never too late.
I am truly humbled by the requests I am getting to whip up some more handcrafted skincare and personal care items from my very own cute little island kitchen. It all started with a body lotion, then a facial oil and then my son had a stubborn cough and I simply refused to use chest balms that has turpentine and other too hideous to mention ingredients on him.
So I made my own. I made a small batch enough for my son, my nephew and niece. I have yet to name it, but my cousin is adamant about calling it “sniffles balm”. He he. So it shall be, for now. The above pic is courtesy of my cousin’s order and it is a trio of blended face oil elixir, Dead Sea Mud mask with gorgeous extracts and essential oils, and the little round jar is a sample of my sniffles balm that I gave away. All these products were blended with much love and Reiki-ed too. 🙂
So it turned out my aunt kidnapped the balm away from my cousin to nurse her respiratory issues. So that worked out well! Ha ha.
I am receiving a few interested enquiries too, from other circle of acquaintances on Facebook so I am really psyched. A colleague is requesting 1 kilo worth of the sniffles balm because her whole family is dependent on chest balms from the popular company that begins with the letter ‘V’! A kilo! Yikes. 🙂
Coming up, a special batch for one of my bestie’s (I have 2 Aquarian best buds) *20th* birthday! (No, she is not 20 years old, I am just being kind) Woohooo. She doesn’t know this yet, will meet her later. It IS her birthday today, and she deserve some goodness gracious lovely products! Hope to get good pics and testimonials from her later!

Toodles!
