What we put on our skin matters! Have you ever noticed the woman shopping in the organic produce section just after having her hair and nails done? She walks around in a cloud of toxins while trying to eat a non-toxic diet. The baby in her stroller is also doused in toxic chemicals. She doesn’t realize that the skin is not so much a barrier as it is an organ that absorbs whatever she puts on it. She thinks that she has to use dangerous personal care products to look and feel good. It doesn’t have to be this way!
Roxanne, The Holistic Mama, has created a wonderful resource for those of you wanting to learn how to make your own non-toxic skincare products. She has recipes for shampoo, scrubs, facial cleansing oils, face masks, lotions, lip balms, body butters and more! Many of her recipes are very similar to ones that I have been using for a long time with excellent results. Rather than being packed full of toxic chemicals, her recipes are made of nourishing and healing ingredients that will actually improve skin!
The recipes in The Holistic Mama’s Guide to Homemade Skin Care are clear and easy enough for a beginner to follow. Along with oils, butters and beeswax, she also includes ideas for essential oils to add to the recipes. Unlike toxic perfumes, pure essential oils smell lovely with the added benefit of each of them having their own healing properties.
If you’ve been around my blog for awhile, then you’re probably aware that I am very passionate about not putting toxic products on my children. I love Roxanne’s section just for kids, which includes salves, ointments, insect repellent and hand sanitizer! I have been looking for a good recipe for a natural hand sanitizer, so I plan to make up a batch of the recipe in this ebook, soon!
Along with all of these amazing recipes, Roxanne also explains why to avoid processed food, what to eat and how to have a less toxic lifestyle. If you are brand new to the idea of trying to reduce the amount of toxins you put on or in yourself, this ebook will help you on your way. If, like me, you’ve been making your own natural skin care products for a long time, you’ll still find a lot of new ideas and recipes to add to your repetiore!
In addition to The Holistic Mama’s Guide to Homemade Skin Care, Roxanne also has one-on-one health coaching programs, lip balm, body butter, facial serum and ointments available for purchase! If you would like to learn more about this eBook or even go ahead and place an order, click here!
