DIY HANDSOAP/BODYWASH

DIY HANDSOAP/BODYWASH
There has been many soaps I wished were in a liquid form over the years. I just prefer hand soap and body wash over the bars no matter how yummy they smell.
Awhile back Macee Leigh had a soap called Cotton Candy. When I say I adored this soap, those words don't give enough credit. I just couldn't get enough of it.Sadly, we don't carry hand soap.Which lead to some experimenting that lead to this recipe. 
 I know I cant be alone in my preference or in the fact that they're are many soaps that smell fabulous that I need in my life. With my new found secret I couldn't resist but to share my simple solution to fix this issue. 1. pick your favorite Macee Leigh bar of soap (of course lol)2. shred (used a cheese grater)3. bring water to a boil (about 1oz of water per oz of soap)4. add one tsp of coconut oil (or whatever oil you wish) and soap to water5. let sit (2 to 4 hours)6. stir and put in your fav container.
BAM ML body wash or hand soap.

Menstrual Products Right to Know Act

What's the big deal anyway?
Vaginal tissue is very sensitive, which means we should be extra careful about what’s coming into contact with it. The walls of the vagina are filled with numerous blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, which allows for direct transfer of chemicals in to the circulatory system. In fact, there is considerable interest in vaginal drug delivery systems because the vagina is such an effective site to transfer drugs directly into the blood without being metabolized first.
One study found that a vaginally applied dose of estradiol (an estrogen proxy) resulted in systemic estradiol levels in the body 10 to 80 times greater compared to the same dose given orally. So, you should really know what the heck is in the products you use around the vagina.
The whole truth.Right now, some companies tell you a little bit about what’s in their products. While tampon and pad manufacturers aren’t required to disclose ingredients, many do include some basic information on their p…

What's in your products?

Do you know?Ever wonder what cleaning products are made of? It’s hard to know but should be our right. Have you ever asked yourself these questions? L.et me answer a few of the common onesQ: Why should consumers care what’s in their cleaning products? A: Exposure to cleaning products may cause or exacerbate certain health conditions. Fumes from some cleaning products can induce asthma in otherwise healthy individuals and exacerbate asthma in people who already have the disease. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) “has found that nearly 10% of all work-related asthma cases are caused by exposure to cleaning products.”[i] CDPH is concerned that the use of some cleaning products in schools may contribute to asthma in students and workers.[ii] About 8 percent of adults and children in California have asthma, with almost 200,000 new cases diagnosed each year.[iii] Asthma is much more prevalent in lower income communities.[iv]Children born to women who held cleaning jobs while p…

 I been researching essential oils now for quite some time. It has been a confusing research and was unsure what to believe. Some say safe for animals and children, some say no. Some say not for internal use and then some say it's okay. Luckily, found a solution in Simply Earth and I was even more excited to learn that there was a subscription box that catered to yet another addiction of mine.

Influenster Charm VoxBox Unboxing & Review

Goodies, Goodies, Goodies                                             I received this box free for my unbiased feedback.
I am always excited to get the email that I am receiving a box from Influenster. I eagerly opened and filmed this unboxing for you all and of course my YouTube channel peeps.

As a beauty product hoarder, I am quite sure you all know which item was first to be tested, right? If you guessed the Wet & Wild 1 Step Mani (RV $4.99), then you guessed right. This polish is far better than ANY I have ever used. While I don't have the patience (quit laughing) to sit through multiple coats. This dried super fast. I did have to apply three coats due to some streaking. I don't know about ya'lls experience but that is top notch and a winner for me. I will be getting more of this. Can add Influenster had to been stalking me cause blue is my favorite color. However I have to add that the second experience was not the same, it chipped within hours.
Next, those Peeps (R…
