  • It is very hard to find pure and potent essential oils. You have to really research the company and the owners of the brand you choose. They are not FDA regulated and can say "100% pure" "organic" and not be at all. It's crazy. All this to say I love my oils but be careful. Never order from amazon! You can buy replacement caps for 25 cents and anyone can sell on there and adulterate them easily. Just my input!

    Seems it would be cheaper to purchase one of the many products already made commercially.
  • I’ve been a certified cosmetician and beauty advisor for over 20 years. Even though I sell more traditional luxury and dermatologist recommended products I don’t have a problem with home made stuff as long as people are aware of its limitations. Keep in mind that products produced in the lab are specially engineered to be small enough to penetrate fully into the skin. For example, in the 1970’s people would put collagen on their skin to stop wrinkles. Natural collagen is too large to penetrate into the skin so does nothing for wrinkles. The colleges of today is actually called microcollagen or matrixal (a peptide) which is an active portion of the collagen that is small enough to penetrate into the skin and stimulate your own collagen to produce itself. I’m not putting down natural skincare just want you to be aware that in some cases natural is “better” in some cases not. I’m also glad to see that they’ve put time limits on the shelf life of these natural products. After all you wouldn’t put old food in your body, you shouldn’t be putting it on your face either.
  • WOW...good to know....thanks!!!

    I am allergic to many "essential" oils, be careful of them......
  • Wish someone had a good home remedy for the bags under my eyes; it's pretty bad when your BAGS are getting bags! (and yes, I've tried placing cucumber slices or used teabags over them; doesn't do anything, except that they looked somewhat WORSE afterwards.)

    I have skin allergies and can't seem to use fancy soaps. Thank goodness for Octagon soap! It gets the job done without all the dryness and itching! It is hard to find though.

    I recently began buying Dr. Bonner's soaps again after a lapse of many years and love it. It looks expensive when you see it on the shelf but I find it's extremely concentrated. I use it as an everyday body wash diluted two parts soap to one part water; one little squeeze on a bath poof provides lots of luxurious suds.

    If you go online, you'll find a hundred different ways people use Dr. Bonner's. I personally have found that, full strength, it's the ONLY thing that gets my pesky smooth cooktop clean. Go figure: gentle enough to wash dry skin but somehow strong enough to get off cooked-on gunk.
  • Truly organic. Thanks for the homemade facial tips.
  • Just got my Xmas gift ideas for the Aunts! Thanks!!!

    My skin feels dry and I'm glad I can make my own.
  • I love seeing all these homemade facial treatments made with natural products. About 12 years ago i got really into making all my own hair,skin,body products using all natual unscented base products and adding my own selection of essental ouls and other stuff to them. I created so many I wrote the best ones down into a small notebook. A few years ago I came across the notebook which I had forgotten all about. I see some of the combinations of ingerdients I used then now being touted by celebrities/televsion as the "newest skin treatment" fad and it makes me laugh...Many of us have been using a lot of those products for numerous years, and our mothers, and grandmothers before us. I guess all that fame & money makes some peoples brains stop working!!!!
  • My college A&P Professor when I was in nursing school told us that our skin cells are dead on the outside and putting expensive creams and lotions on them wouldn't do anything but waste our money. I've never forgotten that. LOL
