I have been making my own beauty products for about a year now, and it has made such a difference in my health. My hormones are balanced, my moods are fairly 😉 stable, and my skin is healthier. This didn’t happen overnight. Changing your products to all natural can seem like a daunting task. I worked on changing one product at a time so I wouldn’t get to overwhelmed. One of my first products I switched out was my body lotion. I started making Lavender body butter that only had 2 main ingredients. Doesn’t get to much easier than that!
Jen at Unveiled Wife has been a huge inspiration to bringing awareness as to why it’s important to pay attention to what chemicals are in your personal products. A big part of my healing from my depression struggle, along with my hormone imbalance, has been cutting out the amount of dangerous chemicals I was putting on my skin daily. I’ve been using essential oils on my skin for the past 13 months and I am the most healthy I’ve ever been. It’s hard to believe I am that same girl who struggled so badly only a little over a year ago.
