Shea Butter has natural antibacterial properties and is great for preventing stretch marks, for wound healing, and as an anti-aging treatment for skin.

I make a 2 parts sweet almond oil / 1 part castor oil mix and use it as a cleanser everyday. Castor oil has great anti bacterial properties. This combo calms my psoriasis right down. Second what someone said re baking soda, be really careful with baking sode, not for daily use on teeth and please dont use it on your hair more than a couple of times. Its PH level is akin to bleaching your hair.... Do some research before you start using it. I only wash my hair with water, did the baking soda / apple cider thing for a week or two and then stopped. A great hair cleanser is 2 egg yolks, half a lemon. On cool, towel dried hair for 10 mins and then rinse with cool water (so the eggs dont cook on your head :) ). Hair gets a clean and a protein boost as well. If its dry, just use the yolks, you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil as well for a really deep condition, I dont as you have to then use shampoos to get it out.

Thank you so much for posting this! What a wonderful read. I was diagnosed + medicated for severe anxiety disorder about two years ago. Anti-depressants made me become a zombie so I stopped taking them - and now I'm going to try this recipe. :) Elise

Amy, start off by joining the Facebook group Safe Essential Oil Recipes! They are a great resource. Also, they have a safe dilution chart and you'll find that the tiniest bit of oils go a long way! Start off with the basics, lavender, lemon, and peppermint! Then you can slowly expand your collection once you find out what you like and what you need.

Essential oils can be intimidating at first and even a little pricey. How would you recommend getting started/easing into the world of essential oils in the beauty routine? What oils will provide a good base for future projects and are fundamental for any collection? I'd love to see this broken down and your advice for how to get started.

Post image for Babes With Red Lips

Edit: This post originally ran on January 30, 2014, but we loved it so much we just had to share again!

Red lipstick is a lot of things. It’s classic, it’s sexy, it’s sultry, it’s pretty, it’s provocative. It draws attention, yet at the same time, leaves something to the imagination… It has an air of mystery about it. We have tons of girls at the office who do the red lip so well, so I decided to take a walk around and see who I could capture in their signature shade. Read more »
