Holistic Beauty Made Easy

Holistic health through conscious living!

One simple way to combat dry hair is Coconut oil.

I'm talking organic virgin coconut oil that is fresh-pressed and unrefined.  

Coconut oil is rich in medium chain fatty acids (MCFA).

  1. ferric acid
  2. p-coumaric acid
  3. auric acid
  4. caprylic and caprice acid

Ferulic and p-coumaric acids help fight free radical damage, while lauric acid boosts immunity and helps fight infection. Capriylic and caprice acids are anti-fungal and antibacterial.

Using coconut oil for hair health results in shiny thick hair.

This oil also helps fight dandruff and stimulates hair growth.

Got gray hair? It's said that it also provides an environment where the hair is nourished, so those grays are less apparent and also slows hair loss.

To give yourself a conditioning hair pack, start with warmed coconut oil, apply to scalp and comb through to ends. You can leave it on for overnight, or do a 30 min. treatment.  The longer you leave it on the hair, the better, since the hair shafts actually absorb the oil into the what is essentially a hollow environment.  This treatment will give the hair volume, shine, and manageability.  

Don't forget that Coconut oil is also good taken internally.  If you cook with it, make sure you note whether it says for medium-high heat cooking.  I add it to smoothies for the omegas and fatty acids that provide the above protections. This oil also helps boost metabolism, so if you're struggling with those last 10 pounds, give it a try.  

Know What's In Your Beauty Product

Holistic Beauty Compass is about healthy beauty from the inside out.

Take a look inside and you'll find Information on organic make-up, alternatives in hair and body care, exercise, nutrition, eco-friendly fashion and environments, spas, and natural healing.

It's not easy to make change.  Living in a chemical free world is impossible.  But if your desire is to try, let's do it together.  Having a partner will make it easy.

This is a WOW!

The reviews are in and Baby Foot is the latest exfoliation for feet!  Five stars says Baby Foot is worth a try if you favor smooth, soft beautiful skin from heal to toe.

This product contains at leat 17 types of natural fruit extracts like Orange, Grapefruit and lemon and also has Calendula, Chamomile and Clematis leaf.

The process that begins with a foot soak, then putting your feet into little booties, requires patience. The end result can take up to two weeks and wearing socks and shoes during that time is recommended. This is because your feet will continue to shed skin.

So don't use the night before you jet off to your beach vacation.  It's best done after the warm weather months or as an early beauty spring clean in preparation for sandal weather.  The $25.00 cost is a savings if you do weekly pedicures.

Holistic or Caustic?

The Environmental Working Group has a cosmetics website called SKIN DEEP: Cosmetic Safety Reviews.

Find information on the products you use.  If you don't see your product, you can request a review. This resource is invaluable if you really want to know what you're putting on your body.

Holistic Shopping

Health food stores and Farmers markets make it easier to get fresh organically grown produce. These days, some people are even choosing to grow their own fruits and veggies, because they want a more organic source for their families as well as a way to save money on their food bills.  More and more the world's population is looking to alternatives in food, medicine, and energy.  We as a planet are slowly adopting a more organic lifestyle. Click on Farmers Markets for a convenient directory to find a market in your area.

Taking a holistic approach to health and beauty is exciting because it puts the power to heal in your hands and creates balance and a radiance that shines outward so that your beauty is evident even when you're not wearing make-up.

Walk in beauty.

Are the beauty products you're using healthy for your body? Do they give you peace of mind in terms of safety? 

If there are a ton of artificial ingredients jammed together in one beautifully designed package, chances are you are paying too much for too little.

What you get are chemicals that temporarily affect the outer layers of your skin, but with daily use put undue strain on your liver.

The cells in the human body regenerate every 7 years (except for bone which takes around 10 years).  That's the good news

The bad news is that our newly generated cells are of a lesser quality than those we were born with. 

Our bodies are being assaulted daily by “free radicals”, a major cause of aging.  Having that information alone should mean that the way we care for our skin should be less radical and more harmonious.

Holistic means emphasizing the organic or functional relation between parts and the whole.

In the case of this website, the parts are mind, body, spirit. 

See the connection? 

The chemicals in a single product may not cause a major problem for your body over time, but put that product in the groups of product you use daily and your organs will most likely have to work overtime to rid the body of them.

This will in time show up on your skin as rashes or other conditions that then add even more stress to your body.  

So, Hurray for Holistic!
