I love oil but you have to change your pillowcase constantly. I also question how safe it is to apply just before you go out into the sun.

What a great post, something to definitely try. I would love to attempt a DIY with this as well.

If you have really short hair, like a pixie, you still accessorize with hair clips and the wide headbands...

Post image for 5 One-Ingredient Beauty Tips

It’s really interesting to me that so many beauty products out there contain incredibly long lists of potentially harmful synthetic ingredients, when in reality, you can often achieve the same goal with just one ingredient. Read more »

I am loving this. I am a neuroscientist and I have worked a lot with natural products, at the moment in my lab we are actually focussing on the medical properties of turmeric. I think we all need to go back to basics. Thank you for posting this. www.lilyofthevalleybrisbane.com

I love this blog! I was wondering if you could do post on how to naturally treat/remove blackheads? I've been struggling with them a lot lately and don't want to put any chemicals on my skin just yet...thanks!

Natural treatments are always the best choice

I've been using this for my hair and skin for a couple of weeks now and love it! Brown rice works even better than white because of the extra oils and nutrition in the bran. Try blending down the soaked rice - it makes an awesome body scrub!

Post image for 4 Magic Places To Apply Concealer

First of all, I’d like to start this post off with a friendly little reminder that you do not need makeup. You are gorgeous on the inside as well as the outside. There’s nothing that the presence or lack of a little makeup can do to change this about you. Know that. But for those of us who enjoy wearing makeup — especially on those days when we just aren’t feeling as on top of the world as usual… I wanted to share a little tip I came across.

Can you use cocoa powder? Or is it specifically cacao powder? Or is it the same thing? :)
Jaqueline -Mar 16, 2014, 10:49AM
Any ideas how this will last on your skin longer? I love natural ingredients, but from my experience they will not stay on your skin for a full day. Let me know your thoughts!

Post image for Sun Tonic & Moon Tonic

One to make as soon as you wake… to take with the sun and breathe life into your day. The other to sip by the side of the moon… relaxing the soul and preparing the body for a night filled with restful dreams. Read more »

Juli -Apr 14, 2014, 12:52PM
This sounds so amazing. Thank you!
Lucy -Mar 26, 2014, 2:57PM
The night tonic sounds so yummy and wholesome! I am a little bit wary about actually eating the coconut oil though! Coconut oil has so many saturated fat and part of the reason I do not consume animal products is to avoid saturated fat found in red meat and butter. I love coconut oil for oil pulling and skincare but I am not sure I am ready to put it in my body. Are there any alternatives to using oil? Thanks for the recipes! I look forward to trying them.

I have never been able to make my hair do this? One thing you can do to have perfect hair is to use a hair repairing deep conditioning treatment which you can make easy at home. Just watch this tutorial to see how you can make a conditioner + honey + coconut = hair repairing conditioner https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIXvtiYjL2E

Post image for Dyeing Your Hair With Henna

This post comes from our contributor FP Naomi. Read more »

Rachelle -Apr 08, 2014, 3:25AM
I love henna. I have tried Surya, and, while it is not completely harmless or natural, it is certainly preferable (IMO) to many of the commercial stuff you can buy. You can buy a lot of powdered henna online. I've tried Lush henna and it was okay. I got some from Mountain Rose Herbs that I liked, and I also bought some from Amazon. It is VERY cheap and does a great job of covering grey hair. I've never seen a chemical dye color hair as beautifully as henna does. However, like others have said, you can't really go lighter with it. It also smells, kind of like hay or spinach (I think) but that dissipates. I like to use oil with henna on my hair, then it is like a deep-conditioning treatment. I've also used cocoa powder and coffee to color my hair...be warned that the hair will smell like either chocolate or coffee afterwards. :-) Cocoa powder made it a beautiful color but it didn't last long.
Gaby -Mar 14, 2014, 8:33AM
Agree with Jess. Been using Surya for years now, even living in Sweden -whenever friends or family from Uruguay visit me, they bring me loads of packets for storing.
