I have always been one of those people that would watch a commercial or hear about a great product and would look for it at the supermarket.  Then I would try it and realize it didn’t work.  I was baffled why these products didn’t work so I started to study the ingredients and realized that MOST of the stuff that I was buying was full of chemicals, toxins Parabens, artificial fragrances and other nasty ingredients let alone be able to say half of them.  Darn those marketing people for being so good and sell me on the ways that it would help, but the only thing it did was cause more frustration, NO results and money spent.

I then started to wonder if all these products weren’t working for me because of all the fake ingredients and so I started to look into more natural products and ways that I could make my own soaps, scrubs and other products that I could use daily as well as get other benefits from it.  So I started to use Essential Oils to make some wonderful products and started to see a Positive change in my skin, my wallet and mental health.  Not only was I saving money and reaping tons of benefits from these natural recipes, I was having fun making these myself!
