Hey Lovely, Coronavirus. It's all over the news and everyone is talking about it. I'm going to share with you a few natural alternatives and health building measures you can do to build your immune system, your family and help keep you safe...naturally. But first, we need to take a look at the conventional methods being used. A lot of people are freaking out about the Coronavirus. Stores are out of hand sanitizers, sanitizing wipes, antibacterial soaps, isopropyl alcohol, and even aloe vera gel (I'll tell you more about aloe vera gel in a bit). The scary part about...
Hi Lovely, EMBR•AGING™. Embrace aging and the changes that can happen to your skin. Skin sensitivity is a problem you can be born with or can crop up as you get older. Why does this happen? Everyone’s biological system is unique and some are more sensitive than others. I fit in the category of more sensitive than others since I was a kid. I suffered skin rashes, acne, horrible sinus problems from diesel fumes, sneezing fits from perfumes, headaches, and more throughout my life until I got into the world of natural skincare in 1999. When I started making natural...
What a mild winter we’ve been having here in the Northeast.
We’ve had days close to 50 degrees which seems to confuse the bugs.
I'm always mystified that one day bees or flies will be buzzing around the rafters in the studio on a warm day and then the next day when it’s below 40 degrees, they’re gone.
How does that happen? Where do they go when it gets cold? Do they die? How do they just appear when it warms up?
A great question and answer for Google.
This morning I noticed the tips of the daffodils and crocuses poking out of the ground, about 1/4 inch! It's not even March yet so is it because of the mild winter? Don't know but it’s something I’m excited to see!!
Soon there will be color galore to wash over my eyes that are bored with all the browns and greys of winter. No snow on the ground so no white.
The poking of the daffodils made me think about the topic of this week's blog. Stuff that’s poking out of my skin that’s driving me nuts!
Hey Lovely, I've shared this story often. At bath time when I was a little kid. As soon as I stepped out of the tub my mother would slather me down with Nivea. From my head down to my toes! My sister got this kind of taking care of too. I thought everyone’s mom slathered them down with some kind of moisturizer when they got out of the bath. I learned this experience wasn't common when I was a vendor at craft shows or teaching about the health benefits of using natural skincare products like Made With Love products...
Hey Lovely, I wanted to share with you THIS problem brought up by a client. She told me she was having a problem with her eye. Out of the blue, her eyeball felt inflamed. The next day it was blood-shot red, hard to see and it hurt. She went to urgent care and they sent her to an ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologist diagnosed her with a virus of the cornea. WTF??? I had no idea you could get a viral infection in your eyeball! She had to stop wearing contacts and use steroidal eye drops. And it was suggested to get rid of her...
