Earth Conscious Deodorant

I absolutely love natural, cruelty free deodorants, but I hate when they come wrapped in oodles of plastic.

Hand Made Christmas Gifts

Today I want to focus on a hand-made gift. Something you’ve put a lot of love and effort into. A gift that means more that something purchased from any shop or website. A gift for the minimalist. A gift from someone trying to be a more conscious consumer and less of a slave to rampant…

If you already exfoliate your skin, you’ll know how good it feels, and you’ll be enjoying the benefits. Even skin tone, less spots, an even tan, a close shave, and a bright complexion.

Random Beauty… Discover the Benefits of Moringa Oil

I’d never tried Moringa Oil until recently. Actually, I’d barely heard of it. I was aware it was an oil pressed from the seeds of the¬†Moringa oleifera tree, but that was about it. I knew nothing about how amazing it was for the skin, or indeed that it could be used for cooking. That was…
