My third grade teacher alway gave us fresh sprigs of rosemary before tests and encouraged us to take a whiff whenever we had trouble remembering answers. I haven't seen a teacher use it since then but I'm hoping to incoporate this herb once I have my liscense. :)

This post is perfectly timed as I was just telling someone yesterday about my huge rosemary bush and how I needed more uses for it. Thank you!

Moisturizers break down into two groups, and they aren't lotions and oils, which in many cases are more similar than different.

Coconut oil works really well as a face, hair, body, and overall moisturizer as well! Coconut oil has some really great health benefits that more people need to know about! Looking for some USDA certified organic coconut oil or other coconut oil products? Check out www.organicfiji.com for some of the best :)

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 »

After using the rice water, do you have to rinse off with clean water?

I tried washing my face with rice water once and will never, ever do it again. The night I first tried it I was visited by the ghosts of dead people I knew.

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.

I made my own makeup with beet root, arrowroot, cacao powder and cinnamon, but these ingredients triggered a candida attack in me. I am very, very sensitive to candida, and my health is not goodI am looking to replace the beet root powder with something non sweet, but I have no idea what to use. Also, I am looking for a replacement for the cacao powder, since the cacao irritates my skin, but I dont know what to replace it with. Ideally the ingredient is healthier than cacao, and does not irritate. The make up I made looked good, but I so very much wish to find make up that works for me, without making me ill. All help is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for this blog. I need blush for doll making and this is perfect. I make so many different colors of skin tones ...depending on colors of fabric I find. I also make ethnic dolls so the darker colors will help with that. Also, I'm of the age that I don't want bright colors on my cheeks so I can make the lighter colors with the arrowroot. Again...thank you.

Are you sure of the safety of these ingredients on the eye lids? Being a pharmacist, I know from my training and dealing with natural products, that the eyelids are very thin and can absorb ingredients through the lid. Also, is there any information on what happens if any of these ingredients get in your eye? Just because it is natural, does not mean it's safe for the eye area.
Sydney -Apr 22, 2014, 4:39PM
Can the spices be dry sautéed rather than microwaved? I don't have a microwave, but would like to try this route. If anyone has done this, how long would you recommend?
