The average woman puts over 40 different avoidable carcinogenic ingredients onto her body daily. This results in over 14,600 carcinogenic exposures annually!

These concoctions come in the form of soap, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant, facial products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer), hair products (gel, mud, mousse, spray), and cosmetics (foundation, eyeshadow, blush, mascara, face powder, lipstick).

In the spa and wellness industry we believe if you can’t pronounce it then you shouldn’t eat it or put it anywhere on your body.

I’ve pulled together some of my favorite DIY beauty treatments that not only incorporate fresh florals, but they’re affordable for keeping that budget in check.

Try these at-home DIY botanical beauty treatments designed to treat skin-care concerns, from blemishes to dehydrated complexions.

For spots: Gently dab a few drops of pure essential lavender oil on any pesky spots to reduce redness and inflammation.

For uplifting your complexion: Combine cleaned marigold petals with honey and milk for a soothing DIY spa facial mask at home. This mixture supports and plumps up thinning and aging skin.




For puffy eyes: Moisten two organic chamomile tea bags in cold water and let them sit in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes. Once removed, place over your eyes for 20-30 minutes to reduce puffiness. Rinse your eyes.




To restore hydration: To hydrate dry, irritated or cracked skin, infuse water with cleaned rose petals and lemon juice to use as a facial mist or skin toner.
