  • Lavender Oil: Ear health, healing, calming. Use to calm during separation anxiety. Rub on paws or apply to your hands and rub on pet. Apply directly to wounds.
  • Peppermint Oil: Add a couple drops to water dish to reduce ‘bad breath.’ Good for arthritis and strains.
  • Lemon Oil: Helps blood coagulate, so apply to any bleeding wounds.
  • Organic Castor Oil: Shines coat, reduces anxiety. Used on 4H animals before show.

Here are some other great essential oil recipes for your pets:

    Perfect Pedicure How-To:

    Start by removing any old polish with a gentle and conditioning nail polish remover. Fill your soaking tub with warm water and the Peppermint Foot Crystals and soak your feet for 15-20 minutes.
    2. Clip & File
    After a long soak, it’s time to clip and shape your nails. Clip each nail straight across, and then use a nail file to gently shape and smooth each nail.
    3. Cuticles
    Now’s the time to take care of those pesky cuticles. Use a cuticle pusher or orange stick to push back excess cuticle growth. Optionally, you can also trim any super excessive growth — but always be sure to stay away from any cuticle still connected to your nail bed, it helps to protect your nails from infection. Add a few drops of our essential oils to your cuticles to heal and protect.
    4. Scrub

    5. Massage & Moisturize
    After a good scrub down with the Peppermint Foot Scrub, wash down your feet with some fresh water and then grab a dime-size amount Peppermint Foot Butter and massage out those feet! They deserve a good rub down. Focus on the arches of the feet and gently stretching and lightly pulling on the toes and work up the calves a bit. Give those tired muscles some loving. Use a pea-size amount of the Shea Butter Healing Balm for those hard to moisturize areas. (Your feet are you BASE — it’s importance to stretch and massage them, and even roll them out. They are literally the base of your health — I’ll do a whole post on it soon)!

What You Didn’t Know About Mascara

Prolonged chemically-laden makeup use causes cellular deficiency. In other words, the longer you wear a chemically-laden mascara, the worse the damage will be to your eye and surrounding tissue.

Do you know what else happens?

The follicles of the eyelashes are associated with a number of glands.  When the follicle and sebaceous glands clog, your body goes into overload to try and ‘fix’ the clog.  If your body cannot clear it, a stye can form.  This is certainly a BIG HINT that whatever has been on your eyelashes is not good!  Your mucous membranes are trying to keep the chemicals from most mascaras OUT of your body & bloodstream by keeping the follicles clear and healthy.

And this occurs too!  

Damaged follicles will make your lashes grow stubby and in weird directions.  Many typical allergens and irritants are hidden in the ingredients in most mascaras, which can cause this damage.  Even mascaras labeled ‘natural’, ‘hypo-allergenic’, and ‘organic’ will more than likely have these ingredients.

Here are the MAIN OFFENDERS to avoid in mascara:

Acrylate Copolymer, and Polyvinylalcohol (PVA): MAN-MADE CHEMICAL PLASTIC. Typically created using acrylic acid (Dow chemical) and a pre-polymer.

Tromethamine:  This is an anti-inflammatory, used in the drug Toradol.

Ehtylhexylglycerin, Parabens, and Phenoxyethanol:  ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVE.  Irritant.  Synthetic preservative.

DimethiconePetrolatumPropylene glycol, and Polybutene:  petroleum by-products that clog the eyelash and skin pores.  Irritant.

We make it easy for you to find and use a mascara you can not only feel good about, but one that will actually make your eyelashes fuller, and healthier!  Our Natural Mascara contains NO HARSH CHEMICALS.  Check out our ingredient listing below:

Water (aqua), *Chamomile hydrosol, Carnauba Wax, Mica, * Coffee Powder, *Rice Powder, *Sunflower Oil, *Corn Starch, Lecithin, Vitamin E, Oregano, Thyme, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Goldenseal, *Lemon Peel Extract, * Grapefruit Seed Extract, Vanilla Plantifolia (Orchid) Extract, Iron Oxide, and Titanium Dioxide.
