So much love still being shared here! I'm glad this info still proves useful and interesting to everyone. I've decided to still share the usual recipes, styles and ingredient info but I want to expand into talking about small business as that's what my life has been for the last six months. I am now the super proud owner of a brick & mortar shop and I'll occasionally share behind the scene adventures and mis-adventures. Until then, enjoy this amazing and refreshing pre-poo with FRESH aloe vera leaves from +Naptural85. The leaves are big and are about $2/per leaf. I used two slice (4 halves) for my shoulder length hair (I did scalp and hair) and for my oil mix I used sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. You can find these items at a Whole Foods or the like. Happy pre-pooing!! #naturalhair #prepoo #aloevera #aloeveragel #aloeverajuice #naptural85

HEAT BABY FOOD QUICKLY WITHOUT MICROWAVING IT

So this tip does use a microwave BUT you will avoid nuking the food.

1) Use a small mug/tea cup with handle and fill it with water to nearly the top
2) Microwave until boiling for several seconds
3) Pour out water and immediately add baby food and stir along sides of mug vigorously
4) BE VERY CAREFUL AND DO NOT LET BABY TOUCH MUG. Hold by handle away from baby. Test heat with heat spoon and feed.

THE BEST NATURAL FOOT SOAK AND MOISTURIZER

You know I like to get the extra mile with all my natural products from my hair to my feet! Just because you won't be showing off your feet that much as we approach winter does not mean they don't need #TLC. So this weekend give this amazing foot soak and moisturizer routine a try:

1) Use container deep enough to cover entire feet.
2) Start to fill with hot water till half way full.
3) Add 1 TB of epsom salt, 1/2 TB of Apple Cider Vinegar, 10 drops of Dr. Bronner Liquid Castile Soap Tea Tree.
4) Soak for 15 minutes then use wash cloth to rub and exfoliate skin
5) Pat dry then rub feet with avocado oil and finish with your favorite lotion

Done! Now you'll have soft, moisturized feet ready for hibernation in all your stylish boot wear! *Add flowers for fun visual effect :P

HOW TO ACHIEVE GLOWING SKIN WITH NATURAL PRODUCTS

If there is anything to be learned from JLo it is to always glow! Here's how to achieve glowy, dewy skin with natural products:

1) Use Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Pure-Castile Liquid Soap to wash face. This will help your face produce more natural oil
2) Pat dry and apply a thin layer of avocado oil all over face
3) Finish with rubbing sensitive skin/baby lotion all over face
4) If you wear a coverup, use a tinted moisturizer

Your skin will be all a glow using these steps each day. This is especially great during fall because skin needs the extra protection from crisp and cool tempretaures.
