Fragrance is everywhere and it's not just in your perfume, it's also in your personal care products. Because it's classified as a "trade secret" companies DO NOT have to disclose what's included and usually it's hiding toxic chemicals.
Why use synthetic fragrances that can contain hundreds of toxic chemicals, when you can create your own? I like to put the scent blends that I create in a rollerball for ease of use.
My current favorite coming out of winter and into spring is:
Let me know if you'd like get together to experiment making your own fragrance.
Be an "Ingredient Detective" and check the labels on all your home and personal care products ~ even so-called "green" companies hide behind the word "fragrance"! My previous blog post What to Avoid: Fragrance gives you more information about this. We disclose all our ingredients so you will not see the word "fragrance" used in any of our products. We use unadulterated essential oils, tested for purity, at recommended safe levels in combination with time-tested, beneficial botanical butters, powders, extracts, oils, and waxes, to create our well-loved line of safe products.
Let's gather a few friends together and I can show you a few products you can easily replace with nontoxic alternatives, or I can share a DIY recipe or two 😊
According to this article ~ The Most Toxic Cosmetic? Traditional Lip Glosses, Finds Study, you won’t see heavy metals like arsenic, lead, and mercury listed on your beauty product labels. But that doesn’t mean your skin care and makeup is free of them. A Canadian environmental group recently had 49 popular beauty products tested for heavy metals...Lead was detected in 96 percent of the products, arsenic in 20 percent, and cadmium in 51 percent!
According to What’s In Your Lip Balm? 6 Scary Ingredients To Avoid Did you know that many common lip balms contain several endocrine disruptors (parabens, BHT, and chemical sunscreens), coal tar dyes linked to cancer, artificial fragrance and flavor, and petroleum-derived oils that can lock it all in.
Have you ever looked at the label on your kid’s toothpaste (or yours)? Many are filled with toxic chemicals
Dr. Mercola talks about 7 Toxic Toothpaste Ingredients
2. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
3. Artificial Sweeteners
5. Propylene Glycol
6. Diethanolamine (DEA)
I'd like to add…
Blue and red dyes (you didn’t think there were real blueberries or strawberries in there, did you? ~ linked with many health problems like headaches, ADHD, asthma attacks, nausea & more…oh, and it’s a synthesized petroleum based product (eww!!)
Parabens ~ which effect the endocrine system, disrupt hormones, and are even linked to cancer!
So thankful we offer a safe, clean and effective alternative (and it's yummy orange flavor comes from essential oils!)

Almonds are one of the most heart-healthy foods on the market, packed with vitamin E, magnesium and fiber. Whether you are eating them by themselves, using almond milk, pasta, flour, butter, oil or meal, almonds offer a delicious flavor along with many health benefits.
organic sweet almond oil
Not only are almonds great to eat, but our cold-pressed oil is rich in oils and fatty acids, which provide several benefits for the skin. According to the "Physicians' Desk Reference for Herbal Medicines," sweet almonds contain up to 77% oleic acid, a form of omega-9 fatty acid. In addition to being a moisturizer, it is also an emollient providing softness for skin. It acts as a humectant to help prevent the loss of moisture. The oil is also reputed to relieve dry, flaking and itchy skin due to eczema, psoriasis and rashes. Sweet almond oil is readily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. It's also suitable for all skin types.
Lavender is one of the most beloved of nature’s fragrances and its essential oil is among the most versatile, blending well with many other essential oils.
Here are just a few of the benefits:
🌿 calming, reduces anxiety & emotional stress
🌿 helps heal burns, cuts, wounds
🌿 improves sleep
🌿 reduces inflammation
🌿 prevents scarring
🌿 improves eczema & psoriasis
🌿 cuts down on localized pain
🌿 helps when fighting acne & problem skin
🌿 helps w/ itching & swelling from insect bites
🌿 relieve tension in sore muscles
🌿 slows aging with powerful antioxidants
We usually diffuse our Certified Organic Lavender Essential Oil most nights, but for a change we recently switched to our Tranquility Blend. Both help relax & calm body and mind, as well as aiding in more restful sleep. I especially love using in the Lavender Bath Soak in the tub before bed.
Our Lavender Essential Oil can be found in these products:
