Healthy Living: How Natural Soap Is Made
Pat White's Healthy Living Articles
Written by Pat White of Essential Body Pleasures   
How to Make Natural SoapI am getting ready to make soap this weekend and thought I would share the different ways to make soap. Each process, is wonderful in their own unique way.  The four types of natural soap include:  cold process, hot process, rebatching, and melt and pour. 

Cold Process Soap Making

In this method, oils are melted and combined with a lye and liquid (water, milk, etc) mixture. Mixing these ingredients creates a chemical reaction called saponification. The mixture is then stirred either by hand with a spoon, or by using a stick blender until the soap mixture has thickened (called ‘trace’). There is no cooking (using heat to speed up the saponification process) with cold process soap. The mixture is poured into a mold, covered and left to cool for 24 hours. At that point the soap can be removed from the mold and cut into bars. The bars are then left alone to cure for 4-6 weeks. This ensures a harder and milder bar of soap. I love cold process soap making and use many different types of liquid.  One of my favorite is pulverizing avocado and adding the fresh avocado to the lye.

Safe ShavingIt’s your morning routine, you jump in the shower, wash your face and shave your legs. Or nightly endeavor.  The kids just fell asleep. You hop in the shower, take a few minutes to yourself, and smooth those legs! Whether it’s your morning or nighttime routine, what you’re using to beautify or groom yourself could be…deadly.

The shaving ritual…we’ve all been there. Nothing feels better than smooth, soft skin in our face, pits, legs and the nether regions. Before you reach for your next container of shaving cream, lotion or gel; buyer beware.

Whole Living: The Salad Days Of Summer = Healthy Skin
Shirley Makela's Whole Living Articles
Written by Shirley Makela of Alki Organix   

The Power of Eating Salad!Among the healthiest foods for beautiful skin at any age are all the wonderful colorful veggies, and especially dark leafy greens! All vegetables are incredible sources of the nutrients we need, but dark leafy greens, super loaded with nutrients, are one of the most concentrated sources for those beneficial nutrients that keep your skin beautiful.  Love Caesar Salad as I do?  You’ll be pleased to know that Romaine lettuce is one of the most nutritious of the lettuces. We often think about Kale or Spinach when we think af dark leafy greens, but Romaine is considered the dark leafy greens of the lettuce world. These rich sources of anti-oxidants can also help protect your skin from sun damage, and as our skin really needs dietary fats to help it stay hydrated adding delicious avocados into your salads is a great way to supply your skin with what it needs to reflect the beautiful person you are!

 

Eating the bountiful fresh fruit of summer provides even more benefits to your skin. Rich in vitamin C summertime fruits are a delicious way to feed your skin to keep it youthful and healthy.  A diet rich in vitamin C can also help heal sun damage, discourage wrinkles and keep you looking as young on the outside as you feel on the inside too!

Healthy Living: Best Carrier Oils For Aging Skin
Pat White's Healthy Living Articles
Written by Pat White of Essential Body Pleasures   
Carrier oils, also called base oils, are plant or vegetable oils that are commonly used to carry the benefits of essential oils and other ingredients into the layers of skin.  Carrier oils tend to be better suited for certain skin types. This article will discuss the top carrier oils that are best for mature skin.

Avocado
Avocado oil is an excellent carrier oil because it is easily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep into the skin. It has been shown to significantly increase the amount of collagen, which provides the skin's structural foundation. Avocado oil containes a high amount of sterolins which are known to reduce sun/age spots and help to heal scar tissue. It is a thick and heavy oil, so it is best used in conjunction with lighter feeling oils in products.

Borage
Borage oil is a perfect choice for dry, mature skin. It is rich in the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid, which helps to maintain and replenish moisture in the skin. Additional essential fatty acids help keep cell membranes flexable and slow water loss from skin cells. It also contains tannins, which provide a skin tightening and toning effect. Borage oil also promotes the production of prostaglandin, which is a potent anti-inflammatory that helps calm irritated skin.
