DIY Detoxing Facial Mask

 

This detoxing facial mask uses natural ingredients to pull out the impurities from your skin leaving you clean.

Why make your own facial mask?

Going to the spa is expensive. You don’t have to waste your time and money when you can make a simple mixture at home.

You can even throw a Spa Party with your friends and make your own at home spa treatments. It would be a fun way to visit with each other and save money.

This facial mask would be a deep cleaning detox. You probably would want to test it on a small spot before applying to your entire face just in case you may have a reaction. Also this is a pretty deep cleaning detox, I would only do it once a week or every other week. read more

Why I love Mountain Meadow Herbs

and you should too!

I learned about Mountain Meadow Herbs when I was pregnant. I was looking for some natural ways to supplement and I knew that liquid herbs were some of the best ways to increase vitamins and minerals in terms of absorption and safety.

I used Mountain Meadow Herbs’ Gentle birth formula during the last weeks of pregnancy to prepare my body for labor. I had an amazing natural labor. It was fast – only about 2.5 hours. I was only in pain for about 10 minutes during the pushing phase. I highly recommend trying their formula if you are considering a natural labor. read more
