3 Secret Natural Beauty Remedies (that even Cleopatra used!)

Hi Ladies! While there are hundreds of natural remedies we could talk about, (and we will, eventually!) here are a few of my favorite all natural beauty and health remedies to repair and heal your skin, mental state, and body! Remember, it's all connected!! 

Nothing Funny About Honey

Raw honey is full of nutrients and antioxidants that also contain natural antibacterial agents to help wrinkles, acne and aging. As you may know, my Aloe (Immortality) mask was inspired by Cleopatra, who was also a huge fan of honey and other natural remedies, such as goat milk baths, (we talk more about in a minute!) that she used regularly in her beauty routine. Honey is also a moisturizer and humectant, which means it additionally draws moisture from the air into the skin! Using it alone on the skin can be sticky business, so I’ve created a simple DIY mask for you to do at home, instead!

Restoring DIY Honey Mask

Mix one tablespoon of RAW HONEY with 1-3 drops of Lavender or Chamomile essential oil (both anti-inflammatory agents to help calm skin).

Apply to face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Use a warm washcloth to wipe off.

Radiant Root + Honey Mask

Mix a small amount of our Radiant Root Mask with one tablespoon of RAW HONEY for clarifying and brightening results! 

Apply to face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Use a warm washcloth to wipe off.

Immortality Aloe + Honey Mask

Mix a small amount of our Immortality Mask with one tablespoon of RAW HONEY for calming results! 

Apply to face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Use a warm washcloth to wipe off.

Castor Oil and Lashes

Whether you plunked too much in your 20’s, you had a treatment that made your hair fall out or you’re naturally experiencing thinning hair (you’re not alone!!) Castor oil is all natural and contains a high percentage omega-9 essential fatty acid which can help improve circulation and may also help with hair growth. While there are not a lot of "official" studies to prove it, (as with most natural remedies) my clients have had luck with regrowth after applying castor oil to their brows and lashes.

Apply a small amount of castor oil to the thinning area, avoiding direct contact with eyes, and leave on. Repeat as needed. 

Namaste Away Stress

My favorite fight against aging takes place in the form of a hot bath and deep breathing. For some more than others, even finding quiet time to relax in a bath is a LUXURY. It’s my belief that we are all connected, and that stress will rob you of your youth and health before anything else. So I encourage you to ask for help when you need it and next time you have 10-20 free minutes, try relaxing in an Epson Salt bath and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. It’s inexpensive and effective. Don’t forget to breath deeply and exhale away all the mindless chatter from the day. If you don’t get the negativity out of your system it will carry over to the next day, and that’s a progressive effect we DON’T WANT to feel on our SKIN.

BONUS PRO TIPS

*Honey has been proven to help with Staph Infections as well as the Herpes Virus!!

*Mix your honey with yogurt instead for additional lactic acid benefits that remove dead skin cells!

*Castor Oil can be used as a spot treatment on the lashes, brows AND any bald spots!!

*Goat Milk Baths (that Cleopatra loved!) are another relaxing way to soften skin and gently remove dead skin cells.

Reminder! USE SUNSCREEN!

The first line of defense against age spots and aging skin is always protecting your skin. Use SPF 25-50 for best results and apply every 2 hours.

*SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays and SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays. 

As with everything, do a patch test to determine sensitivity before attempting anything at home.
