Aromatherapy Gift Idea

shea butter giftDecember 30 is my daughter’s birthday. I can’t believe how quickly she grew up. It was just yesterday when I held her in my arms for the first time. It’s really true, the older you get, the faster time flies! I remember when I was 8 years old thinking how I wanted to be grown so I could be on my own. Ha! If I only knew then what I later found out. Oh, well. I never get my gifts off on time so my grandchildren expect them to be late as usual. I tell my grandchildren I’m on CP time – that’s Cool People (not Colored People or, as my friend Jeannette says, Caucausian People) time.

I thought I would help you out if you are like me and need to get a gift out quickly. I make up jars of creamy shea butter to have as gifts for friends and relatives on birthdays and other holidays. I am too lazy to make my own video of myself or my husband making the cream but I have a cool one that I learned a little something from too. We usually just put the cream in the jar but this video has a cute little twist to that part. Have fun making your gifts.

Desert Living

There are pluses and minuses to living in every environment. For me, the pluses of desert living far outweigh the minuses. The sunshine has done wonders for my mood and the native plants do not wreak havoc on my overactive allergy-prone immune system each spring.

One minus is the effect the sunshine and the dry weather have on my skin. To combat negative effects of too much sun, I always wear a hat and plenty of sunscreen when I go out. I also apply skin moisturizer liberally in the morning and before bed each night.


I’ve always preferred to use products that feature natural ingredients rather than products that use manufactured, man-made ingredients. There’s something about natural and organic products that tends to provide a better quality to most items. Obviously, this is something that I always pay attention to when it comes to food, but this idea can also apply to other items.

For instance, I also like to use natural products when it comes to skin care, as well as other natural health-related products. One of the items that I’ve been using most frequently has been a line of natural moisturizers that I think have been working like a charm. I attribute the product’s ability to work so well on its natural ingredients, because they’ve always worked great for me thus far.


When it comes to choosing anti-aging moisturizers, sometimes people make serious mistakes. This can start from the moment they are buying to the point of application. The goal of buying any skin care product is not to get the best and most selling in the market but to buy one that perfectly suits your needs. What is good for your skin is good for your money regardless of the price.

However, finding the cream that best suits you can prove to be a daunting task, that’s why we are providing you with a variety of anti-aging moisturizers at an affordable price and a guide on how to go about buying the best so that you can get most out of your hard earned dollars. Below are tips on selecting the best anti-aging products.

First, you need to do thorough research on all the anti-aging moisturizers you intend to buy. Secondly, once you are informed about the product you can then check customer’s reviews online. This customer review is necessary as you get to know other people’s personal experience with the product. Finally, you get to consider the price, choose what is within your means as you need a consistent application for great results.

Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition characterized by hot dry itchy skin, with symptoms that often vary over the course of the seasons or even days. It is provoked when the subject is exposed to certain triggers, especially allergens, emotional stress, heat, sweating and mechanical irritants (solvents, chemicals, detergents, bleach, woolen clothing, skin care products that contain alcohol, and certain soaps or fragrances.)

Skin with itchy eczema must be kept moisturized throughout the day. You can massage the area twice daily with 10 drops of chamomile essential oil (EO), 5 drops yarrow EO, 5 drops tagetes EO diluted in 2 tablespoons of almond oil, 30 drops of jojoba oil, and 10 drops of evening primrose oil. A natural skin moisturizer like shea butter should also be used after a bath or shower and each time you wash your hands if they are the affected area.

To keep your eczema under control with an alternative to prescription medicine method try the following:

  • Prevention –  Avoid or reduce your exposure to things that can irritate your skin such as household cleaners, detergents, certain soaps and wool clothing.
  • Moisturize – Use a moisturizer like shea butter or mango body butter on your skin every day to help keep it soft and supple.
  • Don’t Scratch – Even when it itches! Scratching irritates the skin and causes it to break and crack, leading to infection.
  • Identify Your Triggers – This can help you to avoid or limit your exposure to the culprit even better. If you believe a food is causing your problems, ask your doctor about an allergy test or try an elimination diet to identify the irritating product on your own.
  • Keep Hands Dry – Be sure to dry your hands completely after you wash them and don’t forget to Moisturize.
  • Wear Protective Gloves – Wear gloves when your hands will be exposed to anything that can irritate them (dish washing, house cleaning.)
  • Stress Management – Learn to manage your stress through regular exercise, breathing techniques, biofeedback, meditation and yoga.

2 skin moisturizerThe key to having super soft skin is to moisturize it. A lot of people I know never use lotions, and as a result, they always have dry and itchy skin that worsens when the weather is dry. But to me, having a moisturizing lotion is so important. I use lotion daily so my skin continues to keep its natural moisture throughout the day.

I think skin moisturizers should be staples in the world of beauty. They are just so important for keeping the youth people desire so much. They’re also important for people with dry skin, as having dry skin is a sign the skin needs more moisture.  People often use abrasive soaps for showering or bathing that can steal the moisture away from the skin. It’s so important to make sure the moisture sticks around by using skin moisturizers.
What’s also great about skin moisturizers is they help relieve skin cracking. When the weather gets dry, sometimes people’s hands crack due to how dry it is. It can be painful, and a great way to avoid it is to make sure your hands and knuckles stay moisturized. There are just so many reasons why you should use skin moisturizers.


banish-breakouts-mainWhen I turned about thirteen, I suddenly got hit by puberty and puberty hit me hard. I was plagued by greasy skin and acne and it became very embarrassing for me. I would wash my face constantly with soap and water when I was at home, but my acne didn’t seem to be going away at all and it really lowered my self-esteem, which is tough enough as it is for a teenager.

In my later teenage years, I started to use some different skin care beauty products that I had heard might help me through my long-lasting acne problems. I began to notice a change almost immediately once I picked the right products. As I grew older and continued using these products, I noticed that my skin started to feel better than it ever had before.


Fighting Signs of Age

I’ve gotten to that age where my skin, weight, and energy levels don’t bounce back like they used to when I was in my early 20s. It seems like every morning I wake up to find a new wrinkle or line that hadn’t been there when I went to bed. To help fight the signs of aging, I’ve started a new skincare regimen.

For starters, I’ve switched to a gentler cleanser. The cleansers and toners I used as a teenager to ban acne are just too harsh for my older, more fragile skin. I’ve also found the best anti-aging skincare moisturizer and eye cream. I slather them on liberally at night so the nutrients can soak in while the skin naturally goes into repair mode. In the morning, I cleanse my face again and put on a lightweight moisturizer with SPF 15 to protect from sun damage.


Have you heard of antiquated misinformation about skin care and moisturizers that you would want to find facts about? Well, there is a wide number of misleading myths that have been peddled through every platform of communication-and probably you must have become worried. Worry less because we are here to deconstruct some of these myths.

One of these myths and most common of all is that if you got oily skin, then you must not apply a skin moisturizer. The truth is that every skin, whether hydrated or dehydrated, must be moisturized. The texture of your skin is not a major factor to consider. The most fundamental thing is to have your skin hydrated either through cream or serum.

Another pervasive myth in the world of beauty is that you only need one lotion for both your face and body. Well, this is misleading because the skin on your face is by far softer and more delicate than the rest of the body. Therefore, facial skin needs a different moisturizer explicitly designed for the face. Whether your skin is acne-infested or not, it must always be moisturized. However, be careful on the kind of skin moisturizer you choose for different parts of your body.


The secret to healthy, youthful, and glowing skin is actually no secret at all. Get enough sleep, exercise regularly, hydrate often, and of course, use natural moisturizer. Healthy skin mirrors your good health, and it doesn’t happen by luck alone, you need to put in the effort. As such, moisturize daily and use only organic and natural brands for your face, hand, and skin.

Skin moisturizers are widely and readily available. It’s just a matter of choosing the right one that works well for you. There are drawbacks to some moisturizer products though, particularly those that contain chemical additives and harmful ingredients that do more harm than good. Avoid the risk of skin irritation and blemishes by using only natural moisturizer for your face and body. Natural lotions and moisturizing products use organic and natural ingredients which are especially great to use on sensitive skin.

Hydrating your skin with natural moisturizer come with therapeutic benefits, in addition to making you feel good and smell great. If you prefer them unscented, you won’t have any trouble finding those type of natural moisturizers, too. Take good care of your face and body, use natural moisturizer to maintain your skin’s healthy and youthful glow.
