Playing With Clay

Lise

Pictured: illite clay in 2 colors. It is quite common to confuse the different types of cosmetics clays, and it’s quite understandable. Clays are not always correctly labelled and even a distributor can be (unintentionally) misinformed by a supplier.

After a fair bit of research and digging, I’ve procured some real Brazilian clay and will be adding it to the collection on this mini-guide to cosmetic clays. as soon as I finish testing (read: playing around with) it.

Meantime, there will be quite a bit of clay playing going on at the Essential Formulation course I am currently teaching at Tisserand Institute. Creating facial masks is lesson 7 and I am looking forward to it immensely.

Let the clay begin!

The All Natural Deodorant Plant

Lise

J-cleavers.jpg

This is an amazing little slice of nature. Not only do these herbs grow wild around the globe, but they provide numerous other benefits. Cleavers (Galium aparine) are useful in several ways. The fruits (those round growths you see up there) can be dried, roasted and used to make a drink that is quite similar to coffee - complete with natural content of caffeine.

Among many other benefits, Cleavers is said to even offer anti-aging properties. And although the anti-aging bit has my interest, it is the all-natural deodorizing capabilities of this humble herb that has captured my full attention.

If you’re interested in learning more about cleavers (and the numerous other wonderful herbs and plants that surround us and provide health benefits), visit Medical Herbalist Vivienne Campbell at The Herbal Hub.

And if you want to try making your own all-natural and preservative-free deodorant with cleavers, there are 3 different formulas to choose from in this E-book. They are pictured below to the right of the book.

No Soap Cleansing - A Different Solution

Lise

Ever since I developed and started blogging about my no soap cleansing bars several years ago, the idea has caught on and spread around the globe. It has been a thrill to see how many people have taken to the concept of no soap facial cleansing. The many comments and emails I have received from people who have tried my formulas have not only warmed my heart, but confirmed to me that no soap cleansing works.

The idea of cleansing the face without soap may seem odd, but for many folks with sensitive, troubled, dry or mature skin, it seems to be a very effective and gentle solution.

If you want to give a single formula a try, there’s one in the shop for a very modest price.

Learn How to Make This Facial Serum

Lise

LisaLisedecadentserum.jpg

This powerful facial serum was developed for a very special purpose. It is part of a course I have been working on since late last year. I can reveal that it not only smells heavenly but works like a charm on my (sensitive) skin.

I’m extremely proud to have been asked by Tisserand Institute to create and teach a course in formulating natural skincare for aromatherapists (and anyone interested in working with essential oils in cosmetics). This facial serum is part of the course. The blend of essential oils in this formula was developed by Robert Tisserand himself.

As a matter of fact, he developed an entire series of fabulous essential oil blends that I have incorporated into the different products you’ll learn how to make if you sign up.

Minimalist Excellence

Lise

I am often asked if it is really possible to create excellent skincare (or even skincare that is ‘good enough’) with a bare minimum of ingredients. My answer is always the same: yes, it is.

There is, of course, a little more to it than that, but here are the headlines:

Working with quality ingredients gives you a far better chance of acheiving a quality end result.

Knowing and understanding the ingredients you are working with allows you to tweak, change, customize and make substitutions.

Yes, there is a lot of trial and testing, research and study involved, but if you are working with something you are passionate about, all of that is a labor of love and excellence becomes a natural result.
