Yesterday, I shared a bit about activated charcoal and its uses, and today wanted to pass along some of my favorite products.
I love using essential oils, whether to fight illness or wind down after a long day. So when my friend Shiva Rose introduced me to H. Gillerman Organics, a line of the purist essential oil blends, I was hooked.
As I have become increasingly aware of the potentially harmful chemicals and additives in beauty products – often ones we use each and every day – identifying safe options has become a priority. And when these options are not only beneficial, but also also work beautiful wonders, it’s a match made in heaven. One of my favorite instances: my friend Shiva Rose’s incredible all-natural face and body oils.
Lately, I’ve been sharing some of my favorite natural remedies, but one that is at the very top of my list, both for internal and external purposes, is rose. Here, some of its wonderful benefits, as well as my picks for the best in rose-infused products.
I’m always on the lookout for the perfect natural deodorant – one that is free of harmful chemicals, and that actually works.
I discovered Laurel Whole Plant Organics through my friend Shiva Rose, and fell completely in love.
I recently shared my favorite rose-infused products, but lavender-based products are at the top of my list as well.
When I began hearing about bee venom as a natural alternative to Botox and similar anti-aging therapies, I was intrigued, and of course wanted to learn more.
From facial cleansers to candles, our picks for beautiful, beneficial rose-infused products.
I first discovered Frazer Parfum on Heidi Swanson’s online shop, Quitokeeto, and fell in love with the packaging. Further investigation revealed that the perfume was just as great as the packaging – in fact, incredible – and I simply had to have it for my Montecito store.
I am a big fan of Tammy Fender’s entire skin care collection – all pure, organic, based in holistic medicine and prepared in small batches, it’s easy to see why – but of all her amazing products, the Epi-Peel is definitely a standout. Basically a mini-facial in a jar, this wonderful product delivers smooth, radiant skin in about five minutes – the perfect pick-me-up and addition to your skincare routine.
Founded on the idea that getting a manicure and pedicure should be “downright lovely,” brand-new Beverly Hills nail salon Olive & June has already amassed a long list of devotees by dwelling on the details. Their menu includes everything from completely organic to pregnancy-safe services, your preferences – from coffee to color to cuticles – are kept on file, and complementary iPads are only an arm’s length away.
As you know, I’m a big fan on Santa Maria Novella products and I keep their Rosewater on my nightstand and use it constantly! XXJKE
To round out my beauty product recommendations, I wanted to finish off with my favorite body products. This is the one area that I need to work on to be a little more dedicated to all-natural and clean products. These are my favorite brands that are on rotation in my bathroom.
Building on my recent hair care post, I want to continue filling in my Rip+Tan beauty suggestions with my favorite face products. Since I found out I was pregnant with Tanner, I’ve tried to limit the number of chemicals I put in and on my body. I’m increasingly aware of how important it is to know what we are putting on our bodies – that being said, I’m not perfect, but I really to make a conscience effort to use organic, paraben-free, natural products whenever possible.
