Get the scoop on Aloe Vera.
So there is a lot of hype about Aloe…
Estheticians and Beauty Professionals everywhere recommend aloe for treatments of hair, skin and nails. And if you google ‘aloe’ in your search bar, there are over a million results with endless claims of Aloe’s healing powers. And if you have incorporated it into your beauty ritual, you can testify the there are some pretty immediate and very real results. Aloe has been dated back to the time of Egypt, they believed that is was a sort of “elixir of the gods” when paired with honey, orange juice, turmeric and cinnamon. But this post is not about to gut aloe or “how to make your own” anything…More of that in future post. If were are to learn of aloe, we need to understand them term ‘delivery systems’ and what that mean in the beauty industry…because lets face it, you can’t escape using some type of beauty product…and you might as well be informed, Right? Right. A delivery system is how the product will b absorbed by the body on a molecular level. Every delivery system has what is referred to as a host or carrier. Aloe Vera Gel is a one of the top carriers because the inner gel matches the molecular compound to our own human cells, which makes it readily absorbed in the body and adds to whatever cells are missing hydration.
The Aloe Gel is the same composition as our human cells….it becomes what your skin, hair and nails need.
Oils that are thick, such as Castor or Olive feel greasy on skin because the molecules are too big to penetrate between skin cells. The Aloe breaks down the thickness of the oils so that they may be delivered deeper into the and more readily adsorbed by the body. Aloe is great on it own, but its ability to safely carry oils to deep into the epidermis makes it one of the best natural remedies you can use regularly or in between going to get a facial. Hence the term ‘delivery systems’.
Aloe has been around for centuries and had been know to help heal and manage skin conditions such as dandruff, eczema, reduce the look of stretch marks, oral health…the list goes on and on.

People are always complementing my skin and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shared this D.Y.I. detox face mask recipe…so here it goes:
- Baking soda
- Bentonite Clay
- Activated Charcoal
- Manuka Honey
- Castor oil
- Frankincense oil
- Rose Water
- Non-Metallic Mixing bowl
- Spoon or Facial Spatula
- Cotton Balls
Wet face with warm water or use facial steamer to open pores. Next, mix paste with 1 tbsp. of water and 1 tbsp of water and add 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil. Apply baking soda paste mixture to face and scrub gently to remove sweat and skin residue. Finish this step by swiping away all left over paste with a Rose Water moistened cotton ball.
Be sure to clean and dry bowl for use in the next step.
Detox Face + Clean pores
Now mix together 1 tbsp. of Bentonite Clay, 1 tsp. of Turmeric along with 1/2 tsp. of Activated Charcoal. Add 1 tbsp or 2 tbsp of water to the dry ingredients and mix with spoon or facial spatula until smooth and apply directly to face and neck.
Here is “how to” vid on making this mask: NailMUA: Charmeric Facemask
Let air dry and rinse off completely.
Pro tip: Re-wet mask with fingertips for easier and faster removal.
This is the point where you want to extract any pimples or remove black heads/white heads now that the mask has pulled them out your face.
Swipe again with Rose Water, this helps the skin calm down after the extraction process.
Hydrate + Moisturize
Apply Manuka Honey all over face and neck. Let stand for 15 mins. Rinse and swipe with Rose Water once more. This is ultra relaxing and replenished elasticity and hydrates your skin.
Mix a dime sized amount of Castro oil together with 5 drops of Frankincense. Emulsify and fuse oils together by rubbing the mixture between your hands for 20 seconds.
Smooth over face and neck in upwards motion to feed that new amazing layer of polish skin you have just revealed! Enjoy the aromatherapy while you admire your glowing skin!

I love tea!…Today I boiled some ginger root and steeped it with some parsley, tumeric and sweetened it with maple syrup. People always stop me and ask me how I keep my abs looking great after birthing 3 children so I thought I’d share one of the things I incorporate into my everyday life.

I use this mix as detox-flat-belly-womb-health-magic-elixir!
