Coconut Oil for Baby’s Skin

Silvi said, ‘I want to use some cream for my baby’s flakey skin.’  I replied, ‘use coconut oil!’ It’s safe and uniquely moisturising and extremely nourishing for babies skin, as well as for the Mamas! Cold-pressed, virgin, unrefined, organic coconut oil is perfect for massaging into your baby’s skin if it appears a little dry or if your baby has cradle-cap. Best used after bath-time on damp skin and/or when your baby is quiet and it’s possible for you to lightly massage a small amount of the coconut oil into the skin to help with dryness.

Organic Hand Love

I have a pile of lemons (and oranges and grapefruits!) in my kitchen from a recent trip to the sunny climes of Murcia in southern Spain, what to do with them all!? Luckily, lemons are probably one of the most versatile citrus fruits and can be used for many purposes from detoxing the body to cleaning your house, you can use their juice or the oil from their zest. PS: they also freeze really well!

Early Spring Clean…

But back to the body – in winter our skin can become like a lizard’s and needs to be sloughed, brushed and buffed back to shiny, smooth perfection! Our circulation too can be sluggish as perhaps we spend more time inside on the sofa or in bed hibernating! The best way to wake up and renew our skin is by  dry body brushing, an old, old technique that really works.

Organic Mascaras

Every girl always says that her most essential makeup item in her makeup bag is mascara…and I have to agree. Although I don’t wear much makeup the one thing I always put on is mascara. It just opens up the eyes, gives some definition and makes one look a little more polished and presentable. There are so many on the market now in varying shapes, sizes and colours and being sold under many different guises. However, most mainstream mascaras contain potential allergens, parabens and irritants and with the eye area being so delicate should we not be more conscious when it comes to what we put on and around them every day?!
