How to find small business boards on Pinterest.

There's definitely something to be said
about becoming an entrepreneur/small business owner.

They say you start with a dream...a vision of what life could be

through offering a product or service and succeeding on this endeavor.
My journey, however, did not start that way.
As I told y'all a while back in
Holistic Herbalist and Homesteading meets organic hair removal and skin care,
I'm an avid gardener, love digging in the soil and compost, planting seeds and watching them grow,
and making the skin and hair products my family uses in lieu of
buying into all the commercialized chemical filled products on the market today.

I mean think about it...the ladies that lived 200
some odd years ago had beautiful locks and skin.
They didn't use products filled with chemicals

(most of which did not exist in their time).
My start began in my garden as I contemplated a better method of removing the hairs on my legs.
(Sounds a little odd, I know. I do my best thinking in the garden)
I was as shaver from "way back", and on this particular beautiful day
2 years and 2 months ago, I decided to take a good shower, exfoliate, shave and get my bikini on
to go out in the garden and start transplanting flowers and herbs
that had been waiting patiently for me in the greenhouse.
I proceeded with my shower/shave routine when the hubby came into the bathroom
(as he often does) and got ready for work.
When he was done, he exited the bathroom

without closing the door behind him,


I got out of the shower and immediately got mad
because I got the goosebumps.

I felt my legs and could feel the stubble
already trying to peek through the skin. Grrrr.

Along with the preceding events, the mission, the "Sugaring Revolution",
the quest for organic hair removal, my business was born.
Since then I have had countless great days, events, craft shows, parties
and have grown my business slowly but surely day by day.

There has also been:
1. Exhaustion comes to mind.
2. So does perseverance.
3. Determination.
4. Endless recipes for herbs
5. Constant learning.
6. Endless research.
7. Hours of editing.
8. Pounds upon POUNDS of sugar
9. Sore hands and knuckles from
squeezing lemons.
10. Countless almost all-nighters
bed comes usually around 1 am
11. Ideas and concerns running
through your head 24 hours a day
12...yes...even when you're sleeping.
13. And the never ending drive to grow and
spread the word about sugaring!

Fear

...yes...Although there's a fire in your belly to succeed
and do right by your own mind's creation,
there always seems to be that

Fear

that you will not.
It's a "dog eat dog" world out there, they say, after all.
But isn't it that

Fear

of failure at your small business that keeps that same fire alive?
To prove to everyone that you CAN make something of yourself and your knowledge
that you have acquired throughout your life thus far.
Or are you proving it to yourself? This doesn't have to be geared towards small businesses.
Take a moment and think about this for a moment...
is there anything that you strive to do well at in order to prove to yourself
or someone you respect, look up to or admire that
you can succeed in your vision of the future? I've had the pleasure of becoming part of the ever growing small business community
and I absolutely adore this aspect of being a small business owner.
There are countless others just like me who are trying to build a business
and make a better life for their family.

So how does the hair come out when you use sugaring?

I get asked this question a lot. Many people I've spoken to ask me the question
"What in the world are you talking about? Remove my hair with SUGAR?
What kinda kinky s**t are you talkin' about Jen?"

So how does the hair come out?


As the sugar is spread in the opposite direction of hair growth
(toward your knee, spreading 3 times),
the pores are being opened and relaxed.
This allows the sugar to seep into your pores and essentially
lube up the hair to be able to glide right out.

The Result?


There are differences between sugaring and waxing.


  • Wax (often with resin and chemical) is usually spread in the
    SAME direction of your hair growth.
    (Toward your ankles, right?)
  • Then, they apply the muslin strip.
    They rub it and yank it off in the opposite
    direction of hair growth (towards your knee).
    They do it fast, though it is often quite painful.
  • The result? You get red skin, bumps, and ingrown hairs.
    Most experience sensitivity, irritation, sometimes
    even raw skin if the wax was too hot

There are two different methods to sugaring.
It is a personal preference about which one
you choose to embark on.

Sugaring:


  1. Not as painful as waxing.
    The sugar seeps into pores ensuring a smooth extraction.
  2. You don't experience the ingrowns and
    razor burn associated with shaving.
  3. Eco- friendly (refer to)
  4. Earth safe and friendly
  5. Skin friendly

Sugaring Paste: Cooked to a consistency much like a thick taffy.


  • ​Organic Raw Sugar, Lemons, a smidgen of water.
  • If you are a beginner or your hairs are thick by nature, start off with sugaring paste.
  • Hairs will begin to grow back thinner and sparser ( Read the "Science of Sugaring Hair Removal". Refer to Anagen Stage of Hair Growth - 1/8" growth.) This will be a fine time to "graduate" to Sugaring Gel if you wish.

The traditional (ancient) method of sugaring:


    1. You rub a thick ball of sugar in the
      OPPOSITE direction of hair growth.
      You do this three times.
      Then real real quick, in a "flicking" motion,
      remove the sugar in the SAME direction as hair growth.
      The "flicking" motion is with your wrist and fingers.
    2. This can be performed with an applicator or your fingers.
      I provide and applicator because it makes sense.
      The heat does not transfer between your fingers and the sugar.
      The heat will melt the sugar faster. I prefer the applicator method.
    3. You are removing the hairs in the SAME direction of hair growth,
      you won't experience as much pain as waxing.
    4. You don't experience the ingrowns and razor burn
      associated with shaving and waxing.

Sugaring Gel is a lot like thick honey.


  • ​​Organic Raw Sugar, Lemons, a smidgen of water.
  • Great when your hairs are already thin from previous waxing or natural.
  • You can still use sugaring paste as well.

The Sugaring Gel (adapted through time) method of sugaring:


    1. Spread a thin layer on the desired area in the
      SAME direction of hair growth.
      Tip: Smaller the area, smaller amount.
    2. Set your applicator down and grab a thick denim strip.
      Apply it on top of the thin layer of sugar, rub
      (applying friction and transferring heat).
    3. Grab the end of the denim and remove in the OPPOSITE
      direction of hair growth. Remember to stay parallel to the skin.
      Do not pull up.
    4. Some people prefer applying in the opposite direction and
      removing in the same direction.
      I do not recommend this method.
      Hairs are more likely to
      break off rather than removed completely.
Always exfoliate 2 days before sugaring.
Regular exfoliation after sugaring is recommended to keep
your skin as smooth as possible in between sugaring.
Results the first time you sugar should last up to
two weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.
Even after the first sugaring, you should see a
noticeable difference in the new growth:
ie thinner, finer, sparser.

How to find Natural Beauty Boards on Pinterest.

To tell you the truth, I don't wear make up, except on the rare occasion.
The rare date night out, social events and family dinners
we participate in are the only times I put on makeup.

I used to use CoverGirl years ago. Now remember, I've been living
the homesteading country lifestyle for almost 7 years now.
I have since stopped wearing much make up, as mentioned a moment ago,
but I have also started to make my own from natural herbs and plants
I find on the land and in our organic gardens.


In my quest for recipes, ideas, "will this herb work for ____ (blank)"
and the research I do almost on a daily basis I have certainly found myself on Pinterest.
Not only do I base my business on natural skin care, it also what,
I believe, has become an obsession...if you've read any of my other posts,
you'll know that organic gardening and herbology are my therapy of sorts.
I feel at one with myself and nature when I am creating something I can
use to better my own and my family's health, skin and well being.
My only "make up" needs are foundation and powder.
I hate the look of blush, eye liner, eye shadow, lipstick,
and I feel like I'm painted when I have that stuff on.
I'm not myself. I much prefer looking like me.
I won’t get into it all here but I will say that
makeup is one of the biggest offenders for chemical nasties.
As Ms. Scratch Mommy Said,

I have been using a foundation that I thought was good quality
(Lord knows it sure is CRAZY expensive $45 for just over 1 oz / 30 ml.)
Honestly, though I bought it a while ago because it was
mineral based and because it did not have colophoony in it
(a random contact allergy I have).
(Beige Ivory): Cyclopentasiloxane, Water (Aqua), Phenyl Trimethicone,
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, PEG-12 Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Butylene Glycol,
Silica Dimethicone Silylate, Isononyl Isononanoate Polysilicone-11, Dimethicone Glycerin,
Sodium Chloride, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Phenoxyethanol, Trihydroxystearin,
Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Ethylhexyl Hydroxstearate,
C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer,
Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben,
Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Silk Powder (Serica),
Saccharomyces/Xylinum Black Tea Ferment, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxyethylcellulose,
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Potassium Sorbate,
Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019).
I am almost embarrassed to show you this list,
but it does feel good to finally know the horrific product I’ve been using for a year.
I can now move on and make better choices.
Today, I am sharing that better choice with all of you,
because I know that you want to make better choices, too.



Chemicals In Your Beauty/
Skincare Products to Avoid:


Imidazolidinyl Urea


The concern: According to the EU, imidazolidinyl urea is one of several "formaldehyde releasers", which have been shown to induce dermatitis from short-term use. Found in: body wash, eye liner, eye shadow, eye cream, lotion, cleanser, face powder and moisturizer

Diazolidinyl Urea


The concern: Diazolidinyl urea is also a formaldehyde releaser and thus has been shown to potentially induce skin irritations. Found in: acne treatment, shampoo, conditioner, lubricant, moisturizer, hand cream, eye cream, makeup remover, body wash, cleanser, toner, face masks, eye liner, sunscreen, hair gel, exfoliants, scrubs, deodorant, powder, bronzer, foot cream, bath oils/salts/soaks, toner, blush, sunless tanning, foundation, body powder, eye makeup, hair dye, concealer, lipstick, shaving cream, hairspray, tanning oil, hand sanitizer, after shave, detangler, hair relaxers and mousse

Talc


The concern: The main issue with talc is asbestos -- there is talc that contains asbestiform fibers and talc that does not. Case studies have shown an association between asbestiform fibers and the development of mesothelioma. However, the talc in makeup generally does not contain asbestiform fibers. Found in: soap, concealer, deodorant, blush, bronzer, eye shadow, lip liner, foundation, face powder and nail polish

BHA


The concern: BHA can increase sensitivity to the sun's damaging rays. According to the National Toxicology Program from the Department of Health and Human Services, BHA is "reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen" but only when in high concentrations -- most makeup does not include enough to be dangerous.Found in: eye liner, nail polish, blush, mascara, eye shadow, lip gloss, concealer, moisturizer, diaper cream, moisturizer, acne treatment, conditioner, shave gel, lipstick, body oil, shaving cream, wax, hand cream, eye cream, body wash, cleanser, fragrances, scrubs, shampoo and hair dye

Stearalkonium chloride


The concern: Studies have shown this chemical to be "moderately toxic by ingestion", but it has not been proven dangerous at low concentrations in cosmetics. Found in: conditioner, hair dye, hand cream and hair gel

Isopropyl alcohol


The concern: Isopropyl alcohol is used in antifreeze, and it can be twice as toxic as ethanol. But the real dangers are in ingesting it directly, whereas its minimal presence in cosmetic products is less dangerous. It can also give products that alcoholic smell. Found in: nail polish, acne treatment, pore strips, hair dye, blush, conditioner

DMDM Hydantoin


The concern: DMDM hydantoin is also a formaldehyde releaser, which can cause dermatitis. According to one study, "An increase in the use of DMDM hydantoin in cosmetic products will also increase the risk of cosmetic dermatitis in consumers allergic to formaldehyde." Found in: shaving cream, eye cream, bath salts/oils/soaks, eye makeup, body wash, cleanser, moisturizer and shampoo

Mineral oil


The concern: Mineral oil is produced from petroleum, so if it's not purified, one study explains, "Chronic exposure to poorly refined base oils has the potential to cause skin cancer." Ingesting too much mineral oil can also lead to diarrhea and nausea, according to the NIH. But the amounts found in makeup haven't been conclusively proven as dangerous. Found in: bubble bath, eye makeup remover, baby oil, concealer, lotion, diaper cream, lip gloss

PEG


The concern: PEG, or polyethylene glycol, is often used as a laxative ingredient, as it increases the amount of water in the intestinal tract to stimulate bowel movement. But when used as a cosmetic ingredient at low concentrations, PEGs have not been conclusively deemed harmful. Found in: cleanser, concealer, eye cream, tooth whitening, face masks, foot cream and lip balm

Phthalates


The concern: Phthalates are found in lots of plastics and are also used as solvents. According to the CDC, "some types of phthalates have affected the reproductive system of laboratory animals," where they have endocrine-disrupting effects. However, according to the 2002 Cosmetic Ingredient Review panel, cosmetics expose humans to phthalates in much lower levels than would cause the adverse effects in animals. One study found phthalates to increase risk of diabetes. Found in: deodorant, fragrance, hair gel, mousse, hair spray, nail polish, hand and body lotion

Triclosan


The concern: The FDA states that "animal studies have shown that triclosan alters hormone regulation" and therefore it requested a test of triclosan's dermal toxicity, dermal carcinogenicity and phototoxicity. It is currently doing research and is still reviewing the ingredient. Found in: after shave, shaving cream, moisturizer, acne treatment, deodorant and toothpaste

Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate


The concern: Sodium lauryl sulfate has been shown to cause irritation and inflammation on the skin. Found in: makeup remover, shampoo, conditioner, cleanser, detangler and soap

The recipe she (Ms. Scratch Mommy) uses which is how I learned how to make my own foundation can be found here:

Why am I obsessed with the secrets of hollyhocks for skin care? Part 2

Skin Benefits of Hollyhock Infusion:


In my last post, we discussed that hollyhocks are notorious for their moisturizing and hydrating properties.
The extract of this plant (which is what the infusion is) is known to
hydrate the skin, lock in moisture and keep the skin supple and soft.
The non-greasy emollient is known for its softening and smoothening properties,
making it a welcome home remedy for dry skin. The extract is also known to give the skin added
pliability and elasticity, keeping it young and radiant.
On top of all that, hollyhocks are known to be a natural astringent,
thus, making the perfect botanical ingredient for a facial toner!


My beautiful hollyhock flowers are (were) growing so healthy
(Picture taken by me on Thursday, ‎June ‎04, ‎2015)

The hollyhocks will be used in the hollyhock
facial toner and hollyhock aloe facial mask.
We faithfully use Organic mushroom compost.
It's the best soil we've ever used, highly recommend.

They grew quite tall this year.
The stalks are now about the diameter of a quarter.
I'm 4'10" and they were already taller than me on the last day of May.

On June 28, 2015, I inspected the hollyhocks after a good rain
and decided it was time to pinch the tops and make the hollyhock infusion.
There are a variety of colors growing in the garden:
White, pale pink, pale yellow and this beautiful rich almost
fuschia pink (not quite red).


Rinsing blossoms

Now I must cook them very slowly

What's amazing to me as I am watching the flowers cook,
is that while the hollyhock blossoms and a bit of root are cooking,
the color slowly starts to fade out of the petals

A lil while later and the petals are even whiter.
And I must add at this point that my house smelled
AH-MAY-ZING at this point.
The aroma of the blossoms slowly simmering was heavenly.

Notice that the fluid is now a shade of pink and
the petals are now almost white.
This is the result of "extracting" the nutrients
from the flower into the infusion.

Lavender is credited with being anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, antispasmodic, balancing, energizing, soothing, healing, toning and stimulating (Michalun & Michalun, 2010). Pure Aloe balances out the skin’s natural tone, while shrinking large pores and restoring an even texture. Aloe Vera can help to clear up acne, reduce facial scarring, and bring relief to red, irritated skin. I grow my #hollyhocks, lavender and aloe in my organic garden on my 180 acre homestead in Northern TN. We use organic mushroom compost in all of our gardens. The buds, leaves and roots are all utilized from the botanical and herbal gardens.
