Hi! I'm making lip balms for a school market day and was wondering if I can substitute the tea tree oil for say vanilla and the texture would still be the same?

Post image for How To Bring Holistic Beauty Into Your Life

I’ve always been intrigued by the holistic way of living and I try and practice it as much as I can. I always get tied up with the thoughts of “are my work outs enough,” “Do I need to run more,” “do I need to be working out every day in order to be healthy,” then I came across the holistic approach.

Post image for DIY Dry Shampoo For Dark Or Light Hair

Update: This post originally ran on September 6th 2012 but we can’t get enough of this awesome homemade remedy so we wanted to share it again!

I don’t know about you but when I discovered dry shampoo it was like a whole new world… just a quick spray and your hair looks clean and fresh. It’s a live saver if you’re short on time or traveling, but as we all know it can be pretty pricey! Read More

I use cocoa powder, but I apply it with an old blush brush for better control of where it goes. It helps keep it off of my scalp to avoid coloring and gives better coverage.

,) energies are capable of treating the surface of the skin and the deep dermis, but do not treat the middle layer of the dermis and thus cannot achieve complete non-surgical rejuvenation or a non-surgical face-lift. Better and quicker results are more achievable even with difficult noses (due to severe trauma or in asymmetrical faces). By changing the size & shape of the nose, this cosmetic nose can positively influence the balance of facial features.

The "Dark Side of the Moon" tutorial reminded me so much of a "Witchy Woman" black and white editorial I saw in Vogue or something several years ago. It was wonderful, I wish I could find it again. Thanks for making the video.

Why are people looking into the meaning of these jewels so deeply? Has no one ever seen pretty jewels wore simply for a fun purpose? Theyre not trying to take something "sacred" and make it playful. Its body art---like temporary tattoos. Its not that serious

Post image for 4 Ways To Beat Hard Water Hair

UPDATE: This post originally ran August 1, 2012, but we wanted to share these helpful tips with you again! As the weather gets colder and drier, you may notice your hair drying out along with it, so make sure you follow these tips if you’re a victim of hard water hair!

When I first moved to Philadelphia, I anticipated a lot of things. I was ready to start a completely new life; to start my first “real” job; to move into an apartment on my own; to make an entirely new group of friends. But there was one thing for which I wasn’t prepared:  hard water.Read More

Chlorine and other water impurities can have a negative effect on the person’s health. It can cause dry skin, dandruff, and even allergies. The solution to this problem is getting a shower head water filter. The built-in filters will protect your health and provide fresher, cleaner and healthier water. There are different options available that will suit different preferences. I have Culligan shower filter . I've had this for over a year now. We do not have soft water, and I recommend this if you have the same problem. I replace the filter every 6 month. I can tell a big difference with my hair (color) and skin. Highly recommend it!I got great reviews about it from . It was very informational and was helpful for my decision.
