It is safe to say that you have heard of, and maybe even used, a product or two from companies like Revlon, Maybelline, Aveeno, Dove, Estee Lauder, or L’Oreal. Many of these products have so many unknown ingredients, as opposed to the limited number of known, natural ingredients. They also cost a lot more than you will spend to make your own.

Do you know anyone with cancer? Anyone having trouble getting pregnant? How about children who are behind developmentally? Friends who are exhausted ALL. THE. TIME.? Are you raising your hand yet? Removing toxic chemicals from their daily routine is not a 100% guarantee that they will be free from all these health challenges, as there are a lot of different factors involved in them.

Still, we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to remove toxins and do everything we can to buy one more day with our sons or daughters, one more day with our parents or grandkids, or one more day with our best friends or spouses. Would it be worth it to you to do everything you possibly can to be as healthy as possible?

One really SIMPLE and RELIABLE way to have products that are safe and free from harmful chemicals is to make them yourself! Making your own products and infusing them with Young Living pure essential oils is a COST-EFFECTIVE way to get premium products. BETTER products for a FRACTION of the cost.

Regular cleaning is an important part of healthy, youthful skin; however, you can overdo it. Dermatologists agree that over-washing can lead to irritation and lack of moisture. If you have overly oily skin, you should wash your face in the morning and evening; if your skin is on the drier side, stick to once daily, in the evening.  Always wash your face after workouts to prevent breakouts.

TIPS to get the most out of your cleanser.

1) Take your makeup off before you cleanse. Most cleansers won’t remove all of your makeup, so start with an oil-based makeup remover.

2) Avoid drastic temperature changes while cleansing. According to dermatologists, that whole  “Wash with HOT to open your pores and then finish with COLD to close your pores“ thing is a myth and it can actually cause irritation.

3) It is a good idea to cleanse your face in the shower. Mild steam can help soften hardened oil in pores.

4) Alternate your cleanser three times a week with a gentle face scrub. Do more or less depending on how your skin feels. The Satin Mint Facial Scrub is A-MA-ZING for exfoliation. The exfoliating beads are made of jojoba beads, which are gentle yet effective and refreshing. A total life hack to wake up quickly!  

During the winter months, I know MY skin needs some EXTRA lovin’. Adding Jojoba oil to your cleanser can give it just the love it needs. Oh and by the way, Jojoba is pronounced ho-ho-ba. Who here has been saying that wrong this WHOLE TIME?

Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help to tame chapping, reduce redness caused by drying, ease the effects of eczema and rosacea, and keep skin calm and comfortable. The Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in the Jojoba oil help in skin repair. One other positive feature of Jojoba oil is its similarity to human skin oils, its use can trick the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus will balance oil production without promoting acne or other skin problems.

Essential oil benefits.

Frankincense gives your skin a youthful appearance. 

Lavender essential oil is calming, soothing, and cleansing to the skin.

Essential oil benefits.

Frankincense gives your skin a youthful appearance. 

Tea tree has been used for centuries by the aborigines to cleanse the skin. Caution: this oil can be drying to the skin. 

Cypress supports healthy skin. *Use with caution during pregnancy. 

Geranium promotes healthy, clear, glowing skin.



Do you feel like you’re doing all the right things but your skin is STILL oily!? Using a toner may help.

The biggest argument in favor of using a skin toner is that it restores your skin's pH balance. Due to the alkalinity of soap, it causes our skin to be less acidic after cleansing. When the skin needs to work on overdrive to regain its more acidic natural pH level between five and six, it may overproduce oil. Using a toner can help quickly return your skin to its proper pH level.

An alcohol-based toner strips off natural oils, so it is important to use a gentle alcohol-free toner. Make your own toner with a few easy-to-get, highly beneficial ingredients and essential oils that will transform this average toner into a premium product. Use your toner after cleansing and before moisturizing.

Vitamin E is both a nutrient and an antioxidant. Vitamin E oil prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage. It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production, a connective tissue that keeps skin elastic and supports new skin cell growth and speeds up cell regeneration. If you are more prone to acne, use less or omit this from the recipe, as it is heavy on your skin.

Witch hazel is a plant native to North America and parts of Asia that has been used for centuries for its skin-soothing properties. Its powerful antioxidant and astringent benefits are known to help speed healing, prevent signs of aging, stop the cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer, and eradicate bacteria that lives within the pores of the skin.

Are you dying for a relaxing SPA treatment? Making your own mud mask is an affordable way to feel pampered and treat your skin to what it deserves.

The minerals in mud are highly effective for absorbing oil from deep within the pores as they dry, trapping oil in the mud. Mud is often used to detoxify and tone skin and is used as an anti-inflammatory agent for skin disorders.

Some other benefits of mud include: reducing signs of aging, improving circulation, shrinking large pores, rinsing away blackheads, and helping to clear acne. Please note that the mud will draw out some moisture from your skin as it dries, so it is recommended that you follow up with a moisturizer. ART Light or Intensive Moisturizer are two great moisturizer options from Young Living’s skincare line.

Essential oil benefits.

Spearmint moisturizes and refreshes the skin.

Tea Tree has been used for centuries by the aborigines to cleanse the skin. Caution: this oil can be drying to the skin. 

Lavender has a calm and soothing effect on your skin.

Amazon is a great place to order Dead Sea mud for your mud mask. Search for 100% Dead Sea mud.



What is the goal of an eye serum? To firm your eyes, decrease wrinkles, and reduce bags and dark circles under your eyes. RIGHT!? No one wants to look in the mirror and be reminded of a raccoon or think, “OMG, it looks like I haven’t slept in DAYS!”

NOPE. Not me. Time to say BYE BYE to sad eyes and HELLO to bright eyes.

One celebrity secret is argan oil, but you definitely do not have to be a celebrity to take advantage of this one. It is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturizer to hydrate and soften skin and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. SIGN ME UP! With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is ideal to give skin a natural boost. YES. PLEASE.

Almond oil is very popular in Southeast Asia and in the Mediterranean region where the almond tree was first domesticated. It has gained huge popularity in the beauty industry. Here are two of the main reasons I like to use it: first, it creates smooth skin and second, it reduces dark circles under the eyes. According to an article released by “Natural Living Ideas,” some see reduced dark circles in as little as two weeks after applying under the eyes regularly.

Essential oil benefits.

- Sacred Sandalwood is very similar to Frankincense. Calming and soothing. Provides a youthful appearance to your skin. 

- Blue Tansy is a rare botanical in the chamomile family. It has become celebrated for its use in luxury skin care products. Contains skin-cleansing and moisturizing benefits. 

- Geranium promotes healthy, clear, glowing skin.

- Frankincense is popular for its ability to maintain radiant skin and to smooth the look of healthy skin.

- Lemon contains antioxidants and is refreshing, cleansing, and beneficial to skin.
