Epsom Salt – An Essential DIY product for every Eco-Beauty Guru
It has been some time since my last DIY essentials post but I am excited to pick up with Epsom Salt today. Epsom salts play a big role in my life and beauty regime. Once a month a deep, detoxifying soak is exactly what the body needs. Whether you have a build up of toxins in the body due to unhealthy eating or from stress, a good soak in the bath can make you feel so much better. Epsom Salt (ES) is not actually a salt, it is a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and ... Continue Reading
3 Alternative Deodorant Options for Sensitive Skin – Ditch the Spray!
Deodorant and I do not go well together. Painful inflammation, rashes, dry flaky skin and skin discolouration are just a few of the symptoms my body displays if I attempt to use a commercial deodorant. I have tried many alternative deodorant options and these three are the most promising! Before I stumbled onto this trio, I would walk around smelling to high heaven! If people commented, I would apologise and always be hyper-aware of myself. It was no way to live! Then I stumbled into a Lush ... Continue Reading
Nourishing Nightly Winter Skincare Routine Using Bee Natural Products
After my last Bee Natural post, I was given the opportunity to try out even more of the product range. This time the focus was on skincare after cleansing. In my parcel, I got 6 amazing items which I shared on my Instagram Stories a while back. It has been about 2 months since the parcel arrived and I can safely give my opinion on them now as I have thoroughly tested each product. I only managed to photograph 4 of the 6 items but that's ok because I can still share my thoughts. As I ... Continue Reading
Coconut Oil – An Essential DIY product for every Eco-Beauty Guru
It has been some time since I shared an Essential DIY product post... Oopsie, time just ran away from me but I thought I would quickly write up some of the best coconut oil tips for you all. I enjoy every form of coconut except when it is dried and sprinkled on cakes... yuck! But for beauty, it is a wonderful ingredient to have in your home, fresh or in oil form. Previously on the blog, I shared info on how to crack a coconut at home using two tools, eating it fresh is so good! Coconut Oil ... Continue Reading
Bee Natural Beauty Products Are Changing My Entire Life!
Natural beauty products are my thing, they have to be because I am allergic to nearly everything these days. I shared my skin story in my very first blog post because it was the catalyst that pushed me into this whole eco-friendly beauty lifestyle. If my skin hadn't flared up all those years ago, I would probably still be one of those carbon-copy beauty bloggers you see online today (no offence). Anyway, I have been using Lush Ultrabland Balm for years but as always, the price tag really ... Continue Reading

It is important to note that bicarbonate soda and ... Continue Reading
Bentonite Clay – An Essential DIY product for every Eco-Beauty Guru
Hello and welcome back to my DIY beauty and health ‘must-have’ product series. Last time we discussed Activated Charcoal so today we will be discussing Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal’s best friend! They pair up really well together as both have very similar qualities but offer a few different perks. Bentonite clay is equally great for drawing out impurities and toxins but what it also does, is add minerals back into the body. Bentonite Clay Powder is made of aged volcanic ash and ...

I have decided to do a series to share some of the wonderful items you can use for DIY beauty and general household chores. Most of the products have multiple uses so they make for a really great purchase.

There are some really useful items to be found on the cheap at your local Dischem or Clicks. Heck, you can even find them online. I will share all the best places to find ... Continue Reading
