Lush And Etsy Haul

etsy, beauty, autumn, products, organic,review

Welcome back to my blog! Today I have a fun autumnale etsy and lush haul for you! 

I have found that organic cosmetic lines can be very limiting when it comes to offering variety and they often dont change their products up from season to season.  I  was bored at looking at the same old stuff so I decided to have a look on etsy.  I found PILES AND PILES of lovely handmade options for fall. I just love to be festive so I like to change my products up according to season. 

I am very exited to share some of the lovely goodies I found while browsing etsy. 

etsy, beauty, autumn, products, organic,review, honey perfme

 I was looking for a particular perfume with a true honey aroma as this can be so hard to find. I ended up on a shop called symbolic imports because they offer a perfume called ”Sweet Honey“ They also offer samples so I decided to try a couple more scents along with it.

My thoughts on the perfumes I received:

Sweet Honey

Not what I was looking for in a honey perfume. It is SUPER sweet but the name of the perfume did imply that. I  was looking for that raw sweet but somehow earthy and dirty smell that raw honey has. This perfume smells like it has alot of Vanilla added  to it and vanilla is not my favorite perfume note. I am not saying this is not a nice product, I just think perfume is very personal and its hard to please everyone when it comes to scent.

Oatmilk and Honey

Not for me either. To me this just smelled like straight up marzipan. If that is your thing I highly suggest it! 

Celtic Moon

Oh my goodness! This perfume captures that mysterious and dark yet comforting scent of a chilly walk under the full moon. The notes of this perfume are black tea, jsamine, and sandalwood. The perfume hypnotizes you with the earthy fresh scent of black tea leaves and then comforts and warms you up with the amber floral notes of the sandal wood and jasmine. Much like that feeling of going out for a evening walk and then snuggling up in a cozy cabin. I will be buying this one in full size for sure.

 Last thing I got from symbolic imports is the salted caramel lip balm you see on the top picture. MMMM so good rubbing that caramel goodness on your lips! 

Over all I really enjoyed looking at the fun diverse shop that symbolic imports is!  I am also very happy with the originality and thought put into the products! I would suggest you check this shop out!

While pursuing my search for products in the fall theme I looked for a fall scented lotion.  Every night before I go to bed I moisturize my hands with a lotion and the lotion I was using at the time smelled like citrus and coconut which I thought was to summery for this time of year,  I came across a shop called Green Nymph Gratto and let me just say I fell in love with the name of the shop and the packaging right away! The packaging is very simple yet beautiful. They craft handmade lotions and you can choose any of the scents they have listed which there are some really fun autumn scents available! I chose falling leaves and I LOVE this scent, the scent is a bit more foody than I expected but I loved the warming smell of the cloves and it reminds me of chai tea which I am loving at the moment! The consistency is so nice and rich but not so rich that it can be called a butter or whip. It is just a perfectly crafted hand lotion!

petite threla etsy haul

Before I ended my etsy search I decided to try out some tinted lip balms because they are my favorite lip products for on the go! There are so many options when it comes to lip balms on etsy but the shop Petite Threla stood out to me most. One because the packaging was beautiful and the lip balms looked professionally named and branded. My next reason is the color selection is abundant.  Let me tell you I am so glad I ordered from this shop! The delivery was quick and the shop owner was so lovely and included a free lip balm and left me a note!

The first color I purchased is rose and you can see it on my lips in the picture above. Its a perfect rosy pink. Very delicate and subtly shimmery. The scent of this is of true rose luxury! The pigmentation is also very subtle but you can build on it.

Next I chose Jasmine. This color is a beautiful grape purple with a fairy like sparkle effect! The smell is to die for if you are a jasmine fan like me!

Excuse the blister on my lip I just got over a cold and rubbed tíssues on my skin too many times. Something that really helped with that blister was Threla’s perfectly crafted pomegranate lip balm. Hands down best lip balm I have ever tried. The PERFECT consistency! Not to greasy but softer than a burts bees. Extremely long lasting! I am also obsessed with the bright fruity scent of this lip balm, so cheerful and a little strong for a lip balm but I LOVE that!

Now its time for some LUSH action! I Popped into the shop just to have a look at the Autumn winter selection and two products caught my eye and my nose. I have not shopped at lush in a while because though they keep preservatives and emulsifiers to the minimum they still do put things like parabens and sulfates in a great deal of their products.  My daughter is currently obsessed with bubble baths and natural sulfate free soaps do not give alot of bubbles for a bubble bath. I was like hey my girl wants a fun bubble bath I am going to give her one! Which leads us in to my first purchase.

Lush Sparkle Pumpkin, bubble bar, lush haul, review

When I entered the shop I was  approached by one of the many lovely employees the lush always has. I told him I was looking for a fun Halloween inspired bubble bath experience for my daughter and as soon as he showed me the sparkly pumpkin shaped bubble bar, I was sold! The scent is nothing to special but it gave mountain levels of bubbles and turned the bath into a beautiful orange sparkly soup! My daughter had a wonderful time!

lush, lush review, lush giveaway, yog nog soap

After playing with alot of lush products the friendly salesmen took me to the sink to wash my hands and I used a soap called yog nog which is one of there new Christmas scents! I personally am not ready for Christmas shopping yet but this soap smelled like tofee and burnt sugar! I had to have it! I like to cut pieces off of the big chunk before use. Yog Nog smells so good! It has a great lather too!

That is all the festive purchases I made! I feel so very much in the fall and holiday spirit now. I will probably do a similar haul like this around December. A great thing about shopping on etsy is the prices are so reasonable and everything is handmade. I love helping people turn their hobby into a way to make money!

how to make toothpaste, teeth whitening, diy toothpaste, all natural toothpaste, toothpaste recipe, baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste, essential oils and oral care

Now you get to control the quality of the ingredients you put into your mouth leading  to a happier smile!

Most Toothpaste manufaturers  put cheap ineffective and HARMFUL chemicals  into their products ranging from synthetic alcohols, FD&C blue dye, Sodium lauryl sulfate, Fluoride and much much more!

Ever Wonder Why They Say “Could Be harmful If swallowed?” Id say thats a pretty good indication you should not be putting it into your mouth period!

Alright enough of the scary lets get started on our potent homemade toothpaste!

how to make toothpaste, teeth whitening, diy toothpaste, all natural toothpaste, toothpaste recipe, baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste, essential oils and oral care

Here Is A List Of Our Potent Ingredients & Why We Will Be Using Them!

Coconut oil: The base of our toothpaste! This will help give your product texture! Coconut oil also has many benefits to your oral health. Its antibacterial properties are great for fighting plaque but its also known for healing gum tissue!

Baking Soda: Now here is how your gonna get those pearly whites!

Baking soda is often used as a natural teeth whitener. It is known for removing stains.

*There is a myth that baking soda is to harsh for everyday use. Let me just clear something up, it is PERFECTLY safe for everyday use and it WILL NOT cause harm to your enamel so long as you have healthy alkaline saliva WHICH by the way baking soda helps maintain the alkaline ph balance to your saliva every time you use it!

Essential Oils: This is whats going to make your mouth feel minty fresh! Only instead of using menthol as all tooth paste manufatureres do we are using the real deal! Peppermint and cinnamon essential oils are my favorites for toothpaste. Peppermint for freshness and its anti inflamitory properties and cinnamon for its highly anti microbial properties!

Fun Fact: Essential oils are all anti bacterial, anti fungal, and anti viral. They are also able to penetrate through your gums to promote healing!

Salt: PLEASE do not use table salt that is just plain bad for you! Any natural salt of your choice is great and will help with whitening and in keeping your saliva nice and alkaline!

So here are your exact Measurements. (This makes about 1 months worth of toothpaste)

2 Tablespoons Coconut oil

2 1/2 Tablespoons baking soda

5-15 drops of essential oils (depending on your preference)

Pinch Of Salt

Here is How You Do It

Step 1. Mix essential oils with your coconut oil mashing the oil with a fork to make it easier to work with

Step 2. Mix in the baking soda one tablespoon at a time and mix well until it is identical to a thick toothpaste like consistency!

step 3. Add your salt and package it!

NOW HOW EASY WAS THAT?

I hope You All Have Fun With Your Blissful Beauty Creations As Always!

The Truth On Mascara

Did you know that most of the mascaras on the market contain ingredients that can actually do harm to your lashes?

After a while you may start to notice your lashes become brittle and dry and before you know it….they fall out! This is a good way for manufactures to get consumers to come back for more of their magic eyelash goop! 

 I will teach your how to get real results with YOUR lashes without having to pay for false promises that come in a plastic tube of black goop!

First And Foremost you need to have a healthy diet!

 Key Nutrients For Healthier & Longer Lashes! 

VITAMIN H: Vitamin H is actually a B vitamin and B vitamins are known for having good effects on the hair and lashes. B vitamins help the body metabolize fats and proteins and in result you get faster hair growth! You can buy Supplements at health food stores. Some ways to get this nutrient through your food is by eating things like eggs, beans, and nuts and seeds!

Antioxidants: Antioxidant rich foods like blueberries and believe it or not chocolate are fantastic at protecting your lashes and keeping them strong so eat foods rich in color!

Omega 3 Fatty acids: I cant stress how important it is to have healthy fats in your diet! Healthy fats come from things like fish, avocados, nuts and seeds. These fats are good to maintain your vibrant beauty and overall general health. Omega 3’s help your body absorb nutrients and vitamins to your blood stream.

Only when you are truly healthy from the inside it will exude on the outside.

 How To Condition Your Lashes As Part Of Your Daily Beauty Regime

Olive oil is my favorite natural treatment for lashes. Apply a drop to your finger and apply the oil to your lashes every night before bed.

~Another great oil is vitamin E oil

~A clever choice is Pomegranate oil as it is rich in antioxidants which will stimulate growth

Mascara Your Friend Or Your Enemy?

As I said at the start of this post most mascaras are causing harm to your lashes due to harmful preservatives and chemicals. Why would you want to settle for only temporary results anyways?

I highly suggest reducing the amount of mascara you apply and also reduce how often you apply it. Give your lashes a chance to recover once in a while at the very least.

The Bright Side 

There are healthy alternatives to mascaras one of my favorites is by 100% pure and I have the color blackberry. I have a full review on this mascara on my blog as well. Be sure to check that out!

 Mascaras rich in plant extracts, natural pigments, and  un-harmful  preservatives are a wiser choice. Natural Mascaras are often equally effective as the generic ones though they are harder to find.

I hope you found these tips helpful!

Much Love
