Self Care Routines & the Products I Use Daily

Well friends, Ive been really excited to write this piece, ever since I decided to be sure that I found some time each day to prioritize myself even if it was just for a brief moment in time.  In this case I wanted to talk about my self care habits, the things that bring me back to an equilibrium, how I care for my core. So to keep this blog not too crazy long, I want to introduce you to my old school notes method of writing.

:) Enjoy


In caring for my body I have an ever evolving skin and body care routine that I am instilling as a daily habit. In establishing my own ideal personal care for what works best with my body I decided to share my blends with you all so you can experience care for your body in the best way possible!  Its hard sometimes to find yourself making time for your body, but without it, none of this that you are living would be an experience you could have. Its a blessing each day that we have a vessel that carries our soul to act on our desires. Its a blessing that it functions to the ability it does no matter how creaky you might be…each day is blissful no matter our hardships.  So with that, care for your self, Physically.

Here's a snippet into my routine :)

At any point during my day or primarily mostly used after a shower whilst my skin is still wet, I lather my body with Nourishment Oil, its been so great for not only keeping my skin supple and smooth but has a scent that grounds me after my showers.

  • Almond Oil - Soothes dry skin. Healthy fats help to maintain skin hydration by keeping the skin barrier intact.  Reduces inflammation, Use almond oil as a natural makeup remover.  Won’t clog pores & may even help with acne. 
  • Coconut Oil - Restores dry/flaking skin, Strengthens skin tissue & Eliminates dead skin cells.  Contains antioxidant Vitamin E = Delays the occurrence of wrinkles & Soothes eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and its antiviral and anti fungal benefits even help to treat bug bites.
  • Chamomile Flowers - Great for sensitive and acne-prone skin types who have inflammation.  Anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antioxidant. Healing abilities to minor skin wounds - disinfectant properties. Helps fight and block out irritants by eliminating free radicals which damage your skin and accelerate the aging process.

  • Jojoba Oil - Deeply-Hydrating. It is lighter than other face oils and easily absorbed into skin. It deeply penetrates to soothe and soften while providing an excellent moisturizing effect and adding a healthy glow. Nutritious for Skin. Jojoba is full of nutrients like Vitamin E and B, as well as antioxidants and minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, which all nourish and protect skin.
  • Myrrh Essential Oil - One of Myrrhs renowned uses is for maintaining healthy skin, as it helps restore the skin cells to help minimize the appearance wrinkles. It also has antibacterial properties that make it helpful against skin conditions like acne, eczema and athletes foot to name a few.
  • Frankincense Essential Oil - Frankincense essential oil helps strengthen your skin. In addition to rejuvenating it, the aroma will sink deep into your skin.  Your skin will be strong and hydrated with this natural treatment.

Each night after I use soap to wash the impurities from the day I Shake & Spritz myself with our Healing Mist to hydrate my skin through the night and allow for any repairs to my skin/pores to be rejuvenated through the night.

  • Argan Oil - balances out your skin's natural oil production, Transforms your skin = Radiance.  Its hydrating properties are also great for wrinkles and help to plump up skin.
  • Witch Hazel - Wards off signs of aging. The polyphenols witch hazel contains may help fight premature aging by helping to make your skin look firmer.  Tightens pores.

The natural tannins that witch hazel contains can temporarily calm the appearance of red, irritated, or blotchy skin.
  • Along with Distilled Water & a glorious fusion of Peppermint, Pink Grapefruit, Sweet Orange, Vanilla & Sandalwood essential oils.

When the day comes that I injure myself, of course likely step on something with my barefoot  I douse it in Soul Salve to help repair and replenish my wounds. Its worked a charm on stinging botanicals to cuts or bug bites.  Its been a great go to whilst living on the road and being outdoors so frequently!

  • Calendula - Antibacterial properties = useful in treating slow-healing cuts.  Stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites and helps to minimize scarring. Anti-inflammatory properties can help soothe rashes, eczema, and sunburns.

  • Plantain - Natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties = Healing wounds, psoriasis, eczema, insect bites, and poison ivy/oak. It is rich in tannin, which helps draw tissues together to stop bleeding and allantoin, a compound that promotes healing of injured skin cells.

Almost daily I apply Moon.Dust to my face as an all natural clay based concealer.  It gives an illusion of perfection all the while taking care of your skin for it to get to its own understanding of perfection.  Its a delicate shimmery powder that I apply with a powder brush after hydrating my skin with oils/balms.

  • Mica Powder - Mica is a silicate mineral used in cosmetics for its brilliant or shimmering appearance. Sheer/Translucent/Skin-hugging properties = Reflects light from the face because of its glittering or shimmering properties.  Can create the illusion of a smoother, softer and more radiant skin tone.
  • White Cosmetic Clay - Mildest of all clays, Suitable for people with sensitive skin.  Stimulates circulation to the skin whilst gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it can be used on dry skin types without negative results.
  • Fuller’s Earth Clay - Number one choice for oily skin, Draws oil from the skin.
  • Arrowroot Powder - Herbal remedy for various skin problems/infections, Reduces the level of infection/itchiness. The light/absorbent/soft texture = prime ingredient in body powders as it helps in treating rashes, sores, wounds & blemishes.  Vitamins/proteins in the powder can help get rid of skin pigmentation, blemishes or irritation and even delay the onset of premature ageing.
  • Roasted Cacao Powder - Rich in antioxidants, protects the body cells from premature destruction or oxidation thus making you look younger and feel active.
  • Wounds can be healed quickly if that portion keeps on meeting the essential nutrients and vitamins regularly. Cacao contain very good proportion of omega-6 fatty acid that help cellular healing. This way, cacao plays an important role in healing wounds and scars quickly.

Though I might not have much, I still have a powerhouse of hair on the top of my head and that’s not to be forgotten as an extension of your physical being!  So Hair Serum, thank you for your super juices post every shower with a wet head :)

  • Coconut Oil - Deep hydration, Hair Growth stimulation, Treats dandruff/lice, Shiny soft, Prevents breakage/split ends.
  • Avocado Oil - Stimulate blood flow and unclog blocked follicles, Help fight hair loss.
  • Shea Olein - Great for dry skin and damaged hair, Nourishing, Protective/Reparative properties.  Excellent massage oil and leaves hair feeling healthier and more manageable.
  • Along with a rejuvenating blend of oils (Tea Tree, Lavender, Rosemary & Lemongrass), that will both ground you, uplift you and make you feel relaxed after a shower, as well as purified! 

Anyhow, with that said, I sure do how that you have enjoyed a little break down of my body care routine, how I apply my products & their ingredients that yes I use almost daily.  Also I wanted to just conclude that whilst these are the products I use, it's not all of them…there are more that I will one day share about when I find the right ones, or when I create a various few other products such as deodorant, toothpaste, body creams etc.  

Nothing is perfect for everyone, as we are all so different and react differently to different routines, products and amounts etc etc, but you never know what could work for you until you try :)

Happy Healing & Until Next time
