We’re super excited to introduce our latest product! True to our philosophy, we’ve created a candle made of the finest natural ingredients: pure soy and essential oils. These candles are unique because they help protect your indoor air quality by eliminating the toxic hazards found in the synthetic fragrance and parrafin-base of most candles.
As part of our R&D program we did experiment with synthetic fragrances so that we could see for ourselves the difference between synthetic fragrance and natural essential oils. When we were cooking up the synthetic candles, our team got headaches from the concentrated fumes! We did some more research, leveraging sources like the ACS (American Chemical Society), and learned that the synthetic chemicals in the fragrance have been shown to be harmful to breathe in on a regular basis. Candles are supposed to be relaxing and calming, but how can you relax and be calm if you know you are inhaling potential toxins?
If you’re like us, you don’t want to give up romantic candle-lit baths and the warm dinner party glow. So we’re launching the healthiest candles on the market. Totally toxin free. We use only a pure soy base and 100% natural essential oils. Our scent of the season is Cinnamon Orange, which we think you’re going to love. It’s a warm and spicy scent that is going to be perfect for the fall and winter months.
Let us know how you like them! We’ll also be introducing new scents in the future, so we’ll keep you posted.
One of our favorite things is receiving emails from customers who have had positive experiences with our products. We recently received an email from Helen T. from Idaho, who shared with us her experience with our Face Nourish. Here is an excerpt:
I am writing to you to let you know how pleased and amazed I am with my custom skincare blend. I’m 58 years old and have been treated for precancers on my face for about 20 years due to years of too much sun tanning. During the treatment process, I was left with huge, black, blue and red scabs wherever the precancers cells existed.
During the two week period that the scabs were forming and beginning to dry up, my face was so sensitive I couldn’t even stand having hair touch my face. I have been using organic Argan oil for the past three years but when I read an article about you product and the information on your website it got my attention (especially the part about the amount of water in most products).That is when I ordered my custom blend.
As soon as it arrived I was struck by the care that went into the packaging and the handwritten note (and coupon!). It was lovely. I immediately began applying the blend to my face three times a day. I can tell you that three weeks have now gone by and my skin looks BETTER than it has in years. The redness from the scabs has almost completely gone away and I know that with continued use I will have the skin I always wished for. I am now on a mission to continue using your product and spread the word.
In closing, thanks again for your wonderful product and best wishes for continued success.
Thank you Helen for your kind words! We’re so thrilled to be able to help our customers attain healthy, moisturized, glowing skin. If you have had a positive experience with our product and would like to be featured on our blog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re excited to feature a guest post from celebrity stylist Anya Sarre. Having styled for some of Hollywood’s hottest celebs as well as for Shoe Dazzle, Anya is an expert on style, fashion, and trends. Here she shares two of her favorite trends for summer!
Affordable Summer Fashion
By Anya Sarre
Discovering and playing with the new fashion trends of the summer can be fun and help you uncover a new found self-confidence. Pieces that involve bold patterns and colors will make you stand out amongst the crowd, and you shouldn’t be afraid to! Dare to be bold and feel confident in the wardrobe you’re in!
Cotton Blends Cover the Fashion World
Who says cotton can’t be fashionable? One of my favorite looks for summer is the must-have cotton maxi dress. Cotton is easy to maintain and complements the body well. The fabric is ideal because it’s versatile, lightweight, and allows air to flow to the body to keep it cool. I like going bold with a big, dramatic pattern or a bright solid color. It’s summer – the perfect time for a fun, colorful statement!
Comfortable Shoes Are Making a Comeback
Having fashion forward footwear is an important aspect to finishing an outfit. Wedge shoes are a summer favorite. The wedge provides more stability when walking, making it a nice compromise between the traditional heel and flat ballerina shoe. It’s also a must for any parties on grass or the beach, because you’ll actually be able to walk! Wedges can be found in a ton of colors and patterns and the height of the heel will help flatter you in a maxi dress, shorts, or a skirt.
Where does your city rank on this list? Our friends over at the Daily Glow used skin cancer rates, climate data, and more to create a list of the best and worst cities for skin in the US. Remember to use sunscreen, get regular checkups at the dermatologist, and use products that contain antioxidants to help reverse environmental damage.
As summer approaches, it’s time to get serious about sun protection. Here are some of my tips for keeping your skin out of harm’s way this summer.
FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE:
Cover up! Summer accessories not only look great, they also serve an important purpose -protecting your skin from the sun! Always remember to wear a hat, sunglasses, and a cover up. Here are some of our favorites
Warby Parker Sunglasses, $95.
Mara Hoffman Cover Up, $340
Eugenia Kim Straw Hat, $310
If you’re going to be out in the sun for more than a few minutes, it’s best to use an SPF lotion. How can you find your best SPF? Know your skin! People who have very fair skin, a family history of skin cancer, or conditions like lupus that increase sensitivity to sunlight, should consider SPF 30 or higher. Also, since the skin on your face is extremely sensitive and more susceptible to burn, use a higher SPF for your face than you would on your body.
Here’s a list of affordable natural sunscreens from Living Green.
For a pre-sun moisturizer, we recommend using our Face Nourish with Red Raspberry seed oil. Studies have shown that Red Raspberry seed oil has a natural SPF protection of 50! Try using it in combination with an SPF for added protection.
Our Face Nourish is also fabulous for a post-sun remedy. Create a custom blend that best fits your skin type by choosing from any of our available ingredients. All of the ingredients we offer are packed with Vitamin E, which helps repair the skin in the event you do get a sunburn. We’ve heard quite a few stories from customers who have told us that our Face Nourish has helped stopped that awful peeling…
