I have been making my own products for years and recently incorporated them into my business, All Things Natural with Michelle! I started using and making my own products because I was tired of reading the long list of ingredients on labels. I have yet to understand why an “all natural” company would use fragrance in their products, as most people who read labels know, this is a big NO NO! Read my article: “The Hidden Dangers of Fragrance” to learn more!
I use all of my products but I do have a few that I use EVERY SINGLE DAY, so I wanted to share those with you here in hopes that you would see how amazing they are and start using them as well. So here it goes:
NUMBER 1: My all time favorite and something that I will always continue to use is my Facial Tightening Serum. It simply has Hyaluronic Acid, Filtered Water and Essential Oils in it…. THAT’S IT! Hyaluronic acid is amazing at tightening skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. I usually add in: Lavender (reduces redness, blotchy patches, and acne scarring) and Frankincense (natural anti-acne and anti-wrinkle remedy) for their amazing skin results but I can also add in Tea Tree (acne prone skin) and/or Ylang Ylang (smells amazing and it helps balance and regulate oil production) upon request.
NUMBER 2: Facial Cleansing Oil. I actually don’t use this everyday but usually every other day because it is amazing! Sometimes I get lazy and skip this but I regret it when I don’t! The Oil Cleansing Method is a great one to follow for any skin type. I was skeptical at first because, just like you, I was thinking wouldn’t it make my face too oily and cause breakouts…. NOPE! This product combined with the other facial care products I use has helped turn my (all the time red face) into a face that I could actually not wear makeup. I do still get red when hot, embarrassed or drinking alcohol but for the most part this has made a huge difference for me. The ingredients are also simple in this and include Rosehip Oil ( that I make myself using organic rosehips, Apricot Oil and Grape Seed Oil) and Essential Oils! Rosehip Oi is amazing because the fatty acids and Vitamin A not only : moisturize the skin, but they also promote skin regeneration, and can improve skin flexibility and permeability. This means that rosehip oil can improve skin texture and even reduce the appearance of acne scars!
NUMBER 3: Anti Aging Face Cream. I absolutely love this facial moisturizer and definitely use it daily after my Skin Tightening Serum! A lot of the same ingredients are used in this with the addition of Shea and Mango Butters! Shea and Mango blend nicely together and help hydrate the skin without leaving it too oily! As you can see I LOVE FRANKINCENSE Essential oil. I do add in Ylang Ylang upon request but typically I will make it with Lavender, Frankincense and Sweet Orange Essential Oils for the amazing benefits but also for the smell!
NUMBER 4: Nail and Cuticle Oil This is another one that I thought “NO WAY WILL THIS WORK” but I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing this products works. When I first started using it, in conjunction with a natural nail polish company, my nails were strong and starting to grow and I was hooked! I originally started just massaging into my cuticles but my hands are extremely dry (from tons of washing) so I started using it on my whole hands and LOVE IT! It sinks right in and doesn’t leave your hands feeling oily! The ingredients are: Castor Oil (strengthens nails), Hemp Seed Oil (Strengthens and moisturizes nails), Grapeseed Oil (Restores dry cracked nails and cuticles) and Essential Oils that help brighten, strengthen and moisturize nails as well!
NUMBER 5: Body Scrub. The way I make my body scrub will leave your skin nourished and moisturized while leaving an oily (not too oily) film on your skin to help you keep moisture in after exfoliating! These are fun to make because I can pretty much use any essential oils for the customized smell you want! The ingredients are: Vegetable Glycerin (locks moisture in), Coconut Oil (cleanses and moisturizes), Grapeseed Oil (moisturizes and reduces scars) and Essential Oils, because they smell amazing and have MULTIPLE skin benefits!
I love to connect with people and teach them or share with them my knowledge of natural living! I have researched ingredients and methods as well as tried them myself with outstanding results! I AM NOT A DOCTOR, simply a mom and woman who wants less toxins in my life and have committed to finding and making the best products! I use 2 companies for my essential oils and have done research on both to make sure they are the best quality! Most of everything highlighted or underlined is a link to purchase my products or affiliate products on amazon!
