Remarkable herbal remedies for your

personalized skincare regimen

There's quite a few reasons why you may have ended up on this page, be it concern about what you put on your skin, specific research regarding herbal remedies or herbal skincare, holistic and botanical skin remedies. Either way, I'm glad you are here. That means you are seriously thinking about what goes on your skin and how you can get the skin care benefits that nature provides so abundantly. You are researching, learning and growing in your natural lifestyle choices and I am proud of you!

In this post, we are going to discuss the ingredients Mother Nature provides for creating your own personalized skin care based on your skin care needs.

If you’re just tuning in, be sure to take a moment to check the Skin Care Wish List here:

At one point in time, I bet every single one of us has had to deal with acne in one form or another in our lifetime at one point, so we can all relate. (Unlike psoriasis, eczema, and similar skin conditions that we cannot all relate to.)

Let’s say you've got a son who is in his teens, puberty, football team, great kid, but embarrassed in the locker room because of the acne on his back.

Or a daughter who is struggling to accept that she really is beautiful… under the acne on her cheeks, chin, and forehead. We can consider a lady in her twenties, thirties, even forties who is on birth control. The testosterone in the birth control gives her a hormonal imbalance which is causing acne. There are many reasons/causes/embarrassing stories!

So, go to the Skin Care Wish List and find the items that match your needs. If it feels like I’m giving you homework, I apologize. I sincerely hope that you do not feel that way, with me giving you an “assignment”.

Here's a snippet of the Skin Care Wish List:

Check which benefits on the following list you WISH to gain from your skin care routine. Be honest with yourself and your answers. It doesn’t matter how old you are, in your twenties or your eighties.

Here’s what I got for Acne Natural Skin Care Needs:
Tea Tree Oil; Grape Seed Oil; Sunflower Oil
Ground by hand Rolled Whole Oatmeal;
St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum); Dried Nettles; Dried Lavender; Thyme; Lemon Balm

Oil Infusions are an excellent starting point in creating your own personalized skincare regimen. Below are examples of some of the infusions I make as key ingredients in my skincare products available in the store. Each infusion address different skincare needs. Read on.

Now that you've gotten a grasp of what herbs and or botanical ingredients would address your skin care concerns, let's talk about infusions.

I make natural herbal and flower infusions as specialized ingredients in my some of my skin care products. What is an infusion?

Infusion is the process of extracting chemical compounds or flavors from plant material in a solvent such as water, oil or alcohol, by allowing the material to remain suspended in the solvent over time (a process often called steeping). An infusion is also the name for the resultant liquid.
