Health & Skin Care Wednesday


Not only does this Essential oil smell absolutely divine and very costly but it is a gem for problem skin, neroli improves elasticity, reduces thread veins, softens wrinkles and scars. Neroli is one of nature’s most effective antidepressant oils as well. Produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree Neroli is gently uplifting, calming and provides a sense of well-being, rejuvenating effect on the skin and has the ability to stimulate the growth of new and healthy cells. In my eyes this is a power essence with many use and benefits, so the next time your down take a sniff of this fine oil and use it in your skin care from time to time in a hydrosol or a serum. I recommend Nerola Verde to scent the body, Jasmine Neroli Rose Body Oil is lovely one to apply after your bath. Good luck finding Neroli facial oil, Eleeleneetha had one the other day that is a treat for your skin and senses but it’s not listed any more so keep on the lookout.


I am back in the gym yea and it feels very refreshing, am I the only one that likes to apply something uplifting or calming to accompany me to the gym. Yesterdays choice was this Eau De Cologne Spray from eleneetha shop and guess what it has the most zesty lemonade scent that just gets me perky and it also has Neroli in it blink blink. Yesterdays work out was legs 5 reps of 10 for each exercise I call this the burn out mission when you reach your breaking point and you push yourself to the limit. I do 10 min on the uphill before each workout and after each workout and I also stretch. Exercise gets the blood flowing and that’s a good thing and it also make you feel and look good, so I say make time for a little cardio and thanks to SS for the push.

Vireo Part Two


The composition on Hedone is well constructed and illustrates great romance and strength. The story of timeless love that is what Hedone brings to me, as a child watching black and white films the glam of a time unforgotten. A solid foundation of the sacred and very pricey Agarwood that lends a dark resinous and oriental note to this solid perfume cream , this balances perfectly with four different roses and laces well over other notes of frankincense, myrrh, orange, labdanum and vanilla.
The opening of Hedone is somewhat rich and spicy it warms up nicely on my skin, wear this perfume cream when you’re feeling romantic, sultry and like a sex kitten.


A meditative oil home grown, home brew sweet grass infusion, with a lending hand from other essential of lavender, clary sage and vanilla that come alive when applied to skin warm, sweet and relaxing. Other notes of hay and carrot seed on the dry down without reading the ingredient list I smelled oakmoss but I guess hay and carrot seed will give that impression. Wear this when you’re going to meditate, do a little yoga or to bed. HUM

Lapsang Tea
Black Lapsang Tea infusion sets the tone this is a smoky, fruity smell. Mix it with a little vanilla, mix it with a little rose use it on its own. It’s good like that and so very different from anything you've used in the past. Wear this whenever you take your next nature walk to the park and enjoy as the sun warms your skin and the scent of Lapsang Tea sings scented melodies. Enjoy

Hemp Seed

Nutty hemp seed oil is my hairs new love, I eat the nuts with my yogurt and blueberry in the mornings and now i will share with you my hair butter that i made using Hemp oil.

The oil is of high nutritional value because its 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids, which matches the balance required by the human body.In cosmetic and body care products, Hemp Seed Oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, balances dry skin, fights skin inflammations, helps heal skin lesions, has anti-oxidants, and contains moisture balancing properties. The oil is non-greasy, readily absorbs into the pores, is an emollient, and has rejuvenating and moisturizing properties for the skin. Adult users of Hemp Seed Oil have reported softer skin, and stronger nails and hair after only a few weeks of using 1-2 Tablespoons per day. The vitamins and minerals present in Hemp Seed Oil are easily absorbed through the skin, resulting in a more vitamin and mineral enriched body care product.

Hemp Seed Hair Butter
1 oz  Shea Butter
4 table spoon coconut oil
4 table spoon hemp seed oil
Essential oil of choice
I used 6 drops Jane Carter nourishing serum and 3 drops of Euphoria type Essential Oil Blend a jasmine, rose and sandalwood blend from FigLeafSoap
Mix it up and your good to go.

Combo that rock my world

Who would think that cypress would go so nicely with jasmine well it does,  Nyctanthous from Faunfare on ETSY is amazingly feminine and delicate like the petals of a jasmine and violet flower but yet clean with a bit of cypress.

Classic Vetiver Rose Body Oil from Eleneetha, was i missing out on this beauty yet another blend that blew me away. Relaxing vertiver deep and smokey with a hit of sweet delicate rose otto. This body oil is light tenacious, and a must try.
