Organic Apple Pie Scrub


Apple Pie came out with a perfect fall pie scent. Not overwhelming, just a subtle nod to the American Favorite. The grit doesn’t make you feel like you’ve used a sandpaper block to exfoliate, and with the blend of EVOO, honey and coconut oil your hands are left feeling nourished and soft! No need for lotion after!

Testing some scrubs for my October Launch. If you get a manicure in the next 2 weeks ask about my Organic Apple Pie Scrub.

Ingredients:

Organic EVOO

Organic Coconut Oil

Organic Raw Cane Sugar

Sugar in the Raw

Pure Honey

Ginger, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil,

Organic Vanilla Extract

My Own Oasis.Β 


I had the pleasure of having my first massage and a Deluxe Pedicure at Oasis Day Spa & Salon in Kill Devil Hills, NC.  I opted for a deep tissue massage because I have so many trigger points in my neck and shoulders. We started with a questionnaire and my goals. I asked the lovely blonde to target my neck shoulders and hips. She had amazing pressure;  at times I wanted to yell stop, but I pushed through. The oils she used smelled amazing and were calming. I felt great after we finished she gave me a water and I began my deluxe pedi. I have super ticklish feet and I’m a nail tech so I didn’t have high expectations; but was pleasantly surprised. I already had gel polish and design done before I left so she didn’t do any of my toe services (at my request- she complimented my art immediately). I enjoyed the deep exfoliation, foot mask with towel wrap,  and quite enjoyed the paraffin wax, and who wouldn’t love a mimosa at 10:30 am? She gave a decent massage on my feet and legs,  overall I would go back if I was in OBX again. I would try other services, mixed with the same services. This was the best start to my birthday I could have asked for!

Attempt 1: Unscented Aloe ScrubΒ 


Aloe Scrub

I’m taking on a new project creating a line of high quality natural products incorporating high quality essential oils.  

Today I wanted to make a soothing and moisturizing gentle scrub. It ended up more of a shave gel, but with some tweaks and fine tuning I think we will be ready by October stay tuned for progress. 

Today’s batch was:

half of an aloe leaf 

1 tbls. organic coconut oil 

1 1/4 c. granulated sugar. 

Next time I will blend it and it needed more sugar! Practice makes perfect! 

Easter Sunday. 🐣🐰


Today was very lowkey,  woke up leisurely got ready and visited with my mother-in-law & sister- in-law exchanged epic Easter baskets and laughed awhile. Went to Wegmans got tulips 🌷,  dinner 🍴,  and beer 🍻! Enjoying some libations and music with my love! Enjoy the small things in life in the end its all we have. So stop and smell the flowers!  πŸ’–πŸ’—

Sunday January 29 2017

This is my journey, I’ve committed I’m not washing my hair with shampoo for 3 weeks. I’m not wetting it until I absolutely have to then I’m only using a conditioner.

Chels colored and styled it Monday then the weather turned and slushmageddon descended upon State College (I wasn’t prepared for it to get so bad so early) but luckily for me I was wearing my gold Calvin Klein raincoat πŸ’πŸ’ 

So since that day I’ve oiled it and had the curls refreshed and locked in with the hairspray then I combed it meticulously because my scalp sheds from coloring 😬 and have only finger brushed it and put some oil in. 
The plan wash it February 13th like a good scrub, I’m going to have bad hair days but going to document the whole process!
