Wear Your Rice!

I Tried some Rice Bran Oil on my body this morning instead of my favorite lotion…I really like the way it feels on my skin. It’s not heavy and absorbs pretty easily. A plus is that it will not clog pores and it’s high in antioxidants and tocotrienols (the good stuff in vitamin E).

From what I’ve read it has properties that help to protect your skin from harmful UVB rays. I’m trying it for a month to see how it treats my skin. I’m looking for it to keep me soft and smooth which attributes to younger looking skin.

This one has the potential to become a favorite of mine right along with grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and evoo.

What are some oils that you use and what do you like best about them?

I posted “Naturally Good” about one of our products that we create with all natural ingredients. We created this product to not only moisturize the skin, but to actually have skin renewal capabilities and softening properties.

I’m doing this post because I myself had a moment where I needed something to help with a special little rash that I developed on top of both my hands. I had my hands in some water with a few cleaning products for a couple days straight and paid the price with the skin on my hands becoming irritated.
When it first started I just dealt with it by putting some really good lotion on it, but that just wasn’t working for me. So, one day I sat down to the computer and began doing some research on some natural ways to heal the rash and make my skin smooth again.
I think I…

A good thing.

The tamanu nut-tree comes form the plant species Calopyllum inophyllm, which s commonly found along the shores of Southeast Asia, and grows to approximately three meters in length. Calopyllum means, “beautiful leaf” in Greek and the Polynesians tamanu is their tamanu is their “green gold” known for safely and effectively regenerating damaged skin.  Beautiful, fragrant, orange blossom like flowers bloom on the tamanu twice a year, and produce 100 kilograms of apricot sized fruit annually, translating to 5 kg of mature nut oil, which is deep green in color and carries a luxuriously pleasant aroma.

Tamanu, also known as kamani among Hawaiians, has historically been used as a topical agent for th relief of pain from sciatica,, shingles, neuraligia, rheumatism and many other skin issues, including burns, scrapes, insect bites, sores and blisters. Its use has been very popular among the Southeast Asian natives in Thailand, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. Historically, one of…

Product Review-Alba Botanica

Hello, Every now and then I like to share information on things that I use in my daily life. Whether it be perfume, perfume oils, household cleaners or items, décor ideas, skin care, etc. I just like to share information when I find out about a good thing or a great thing just to maybe shed some light on things to others, or give them another look at something that they may already know about.
Earlier this year I bought some Alba Botanic Extra Emollient Body Lotion. Since I always wear perfume oils, I bought the unscented. I have been using this for the last 3 months and I absolutely love it. The feel of the lotion itself and the effect it has on my skin is great. I find that after a shower I don’t have to reapply latter in the day as with most commercial products, but the moisture lasts all day. I just like the way it feels on my skin so sometimes I apply more just because.
I also find that it is great for massage. I used it to give my hubby a massage and it doesn’t leave that greasy feel on the skin. The ingredients in this lotion treat my skin to the TLC that I like to give it every day. I must say that this is the best lotion I have used in a long time. I recommend it to everyone. It’s vegetarian, and all natural.

Naturally Good Part 2

I posted “Naturally Good” about one of our products that we create with all natural ingredients. We created this product to not only moisturize the skin, but to actually have skin renewal capabilities and softening properties.

I’m doing this post because I myself had a moment where I needed something to help with a special little rash that I developed on top of both my hands. I had my hands in some water with a few cleaning products for a couple days straight and paid the price with the skin on my hands becoming irritated.
When it first started I just dealt with it by putting some really good lotion on it, but that just wasn’t working for me. So, one day I sat down to the computer and began doing some research on some natural ways to heal the rash and make my skin smooth again.
I think I was about 10 minutes in when it dawned on me “Oh my God, The Body Balm!” So, I went into the stock box and pulled out a jar. I remembered that when I created this product I wanted something that would not only be good FOR a person’s skin, but good TO the skin as well.
I smacked myself in the head as I took time to read the ingredients out loud to myself, with my chastising voice, and then unscrewed the top and liberally applied the balm to my hands.
INSTANT RELIEF from the itching that I was experiencing at the time and that all by itself was reason enough for me to keep using it. Over the next couple days I applied the balm to my hands maybe three times a day and especially after I washed my hands after a task.
I began to not only notice the softness of my hands after each use, but the discolorization from my scratching began to get lighter and lighter. Within 3 days the discolorization was gone, the itching had completely stopped, and the skin on the top of my hands was much, much, softer than it was before I had used it for the rash.
I felt so silly because in the past I kept a jar of this stuff on my coffee table to use every now and then and for clients when they come over and want to instantly try something. Turns out that I really “needed” to use it and I was so pleased with the results that now I mention to people daily on our facebook page (Fragrance Cafe’)and anytime the subject of good body products comes up in a conversation. I’m proud of this little jar of goodness….LOL…maybe I should call it that! For now I’ll stick with “Naturally Good Body Balm” because it’s made with all natural ingredients and it really is good for and to my skin. Now I must make enough to keep on stock since I talk about it so much.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to comment.
