Benefits of Exfoliation

April 2014 Title 1
The natural rhythms of the spring season are definitely upon us and just like spring cleaning our homes, our skin can benefit from proper exfoliation. As we transition from the cold drying winter months to springtime and warmer weather, we all want our skin to have a healthy glow. After all, that is part of putting your best face forward for all to see. Pollution, smoke, dryness, UV rays, stress and more are all contributing factors that accelerate the aging process for both men and women. The benefits of exfoliation will be noticable right away and should be part of your daily or weekly facial/body cleansing routine.

This is simply the process of removing dead skin cells to make way for younger cells while unclogging pores. Comes from the latin word “exfoliare”, which means “to remove leaves.” Our skin is constantly generating new skin cells and as cells start to pile up, they give the skin a rough, dry and dull appearance. Used weekly, exfoliation helps keep the skin renewed by smoothing the epidermis and helps to minimize fine lines. It also boosts circulation to your face and gives your complexion a radiant glow. Your skin will look softer and healthier.

There are a myriad of products on the market and choose one best suited for your skin type. For the face always use a “gentle” exfoliation product. Never use body scrubs on the face as they are way too harsh. Like most good things, the key is moderation. You can over-exfoliate and increase dryness, especially for sensitive skin types. Weekly exfoliation and daily moisturizing are two important treatments that if carried out regularly, maintain the epidermis for a supple and youthful appearance. Always moisturize after exfoliation. Water is also vital for your skin’s overall appearance, so drink plenty daily.

Essential oils help regulate sebum production, reduce inflammation and stimulate the growth of new cells. Whether you have normal, dry, oily, mature or combination skin, you will benefit from their use. You will notice that many essential oils have crossover benefits for each skin type.

Happy St. Patricks Day March 2014

IrelandCastlePic1March2014We continue with the St. Patty’s Day festivities through March 17, 2014 ~

Happy St. Patty’s Day to all our friends and family!

The enchanting visit we enjoyed in Ireland was filled with their vibrant heritage, rich with music, powerful imagination and deep spirituality.  The Kylemore Abbey pictured above was just one of the many treasures found there.  It seemed everywhere we looked, a wee leprechan, fairy or elf could appear at any moment.

A dash of whimsy here, a bit of mystery there, and a smidgeon of fun is added to a “fanciful magickal potion” of aromatics below for your enjoyment.

St. Patty’s Day Fun – Dance of the Leprechans Diffuser Synergy

Making a synergy Pic March 2014
St. Patty’s Day festivities started here in Fort Lauderdale yesterday and the merriment will continue through March 17th.  I decided to embrace the lively spirit and make a few new aromatic synergies with some fun, uplifting citrus oils like Blood Orange, Wild Orange, Lime, Lemon and more.  These cheerful synergies are good for the diffuser and pocket inhaler diffuser.
