For someone with the soul that close to mother nature and appreciate the art of healing skin problems like acne using true nature’s wonders, I can vouch for today’s topic.
The concept of building and creating your own products from natural raw ingredients are always a very favorite of mine. But don’t you worry, I’m not biased!
Creating products, or just essentially using them alone from natural, raw, organic ingredients are proven to be more healing and therapeutic to some people.
I personally like to create my own skincare products using natural ingredients such as shea butter, essentials oil, apple cider vinegar, or Castille soap.
Not only it is therapeutic, calming and smell incredible, but some people choose the natural route because of allergy, sensitive skin or just simply a personal choice.
For me, it’s because I am a product’s vegan. I prefer to use cruelty-free, non-animal derivatives, fair trade organic products.
Okay, trust me, it is not that complicated.
What I mean is that these type of raw natural ingredients are often from an organic source, that is known and proven hundreds of years before, to be safe to use directly without going through a lot of lab test on our furry friends.
And is also often originated from the mother nature itself like the undeveloped countryside, or exotic forest in an alienated island that is boasted with powerful and beneficial sources.
Now we’ve covered the goodness of natural ingredients, let’s move on to one of my favorite natural products of all.
Essential oil! Essential oil not only is therapeutic and aromatherapy, it is also an amazing and powerful ingredient to treat acne and any problems in your life, including heartbreak!
How do you ask? 20 drops of lavender essential oil in the bathtub, to help you de-stress and relaxed that will instantly make you forget about the monster that just cost you your precious tears earlier. I got you, girl!
