How to harvest, prepare, and use dandelion leaf and root for beauty and health
 
06:31
Dandelions are one of the most healing, rejuvenating, and respected herbs in the world. Come with me on a video journey to learn to use them to enhance your health and beauty. I show you when to harvest, how to pick them, what nutrients they have, how that is beneficial, and how to prepare the root for dandelion tea or roast it for "coffee". Dandelion is also used in some great products you can use easily every day if you don't live near an area where you can harvest clean, pesticide free dandelions or just don't have time and energy. The Latin name for dandelion is Taraxacum officinale and they grow wild in all kinds of places. They are a hardy plant that often pops up in sidewalk cracks and anywhere they can find a spare bit of dirt. They concentrate nutrients from the soil and that benefits you when you eat, drink, and apply them to your skin. Traditional Medicinals was kind enough to provide me a sample of their tea to try. I was not paid for my opinion, and their tea is quite tasty. You can purchase it at your local health food or supplement store and at their website: http://traditionalmedicinals.com/products/dandelion-leaf-root/ They sent me the Dandelion Leaf and Root tea which is unroasted. It has a very nice, mild flavor and is incredibly easy to make and drink. For the most vitamins the unroasted variety is best as heat can damage some phytonutrients.

How to do a facial steam with spa results - heal congested, dull, acne, dry skin types
 
16:30
Facial steams are an effective and nearly free way to solve breakouts, blackheads, acne, dullness, and dryness. You can get professional facial quality results if you know what to do. In this video I show you the right steps to getting the best results using steam, essential oils, and green tea or other herbs. You'll also want to have a gentle facial cleanser on hand. The steam will hydrate your skin, increase circulation, flush toxins, and unclog pores to prevent acne breakouts. If you have severe or cystic acne please try this technique for just a few minutes to see how your skin reacts. The warm, moist heat of the steam may cause underlying pimples to come to a head faster. Long term this means they can then be healed but initially it may appear worse. A very short steam (5 minutes or so) would allow you to see if this technique is a good fit for you. Products used in this tutorial: Blissoma Free Rejuvenating Herbal Gel Cleanser: http://www.blissoma.com/Free--Rejuvenating-Herbal-Gel-Cleanser-and-Makeup-Remover_p_45.html Green Tea, 1 tsp (brand of your choice) Frankincense essential oil, 2 drops Juniper Berry essential oil, 2 drops Blissoma Fresh Mild Rice Cleanser: http://www.blissoma.com/Fresh--Mild-Rice-Facial-Cleanser_p_43.html Blissoma Restore Deep Healing Oil Serum: http://www.blissoma.com/Restore--Deep-Healing-Oil-Serum_p_54.html Related video - How to give yourself a facial massage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe1fzySP35E&list=UUax91Y0OU_FiXXzJa4LI8eA Featuring: Julie Longyear, Herbal Chemist for Blissoma Holistic Skincare Music by Boards of Canada on The Campfire Headphase, Peacock Tail and Dayvan Cowboy You can find out oh-so-much more information on Blissoma natural skincare and apothecary products at our home site: http://www.blissoma.com My blog From the Bathtub has lots of indepth natural skincare information, recipes, meditations, and more. http://www.iriefromthetub.blogspot.com Catch me on Twitter @Blissomagirl : http://twitter.com/Blissomagirl And Blisssoma's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/blissoma

Going green? Learn the makeup product you should switch first.
 
15:43
Switching to natural, nontoxic, green beauty products can be an overwhelming process. Let me simplify one of your choices for you as you transition to a healthier beauty routine. I'll discuss the makeup product that I think every woman should switch first to get the most bang for your buck and the best skin and health benefits. Natural beauty has come a long way, and there are makeup products that perform with the best synthetics and give you a myriad of color and texture options with no toxic or irritating chemicals. I've spent the last couple years diving deep into the natural makeup world as I opened a green beauty store in St. Louis, MO and am now stocking natural makeup for our local community. I'm also going through makeup artistry certification. My perspective is still that of a formulator and chemist, though, so if you want behind-the-ingredients knowledge then look to me for the scoop on what's safe and going to work the best with your skin. Some possible names for silicones in your makeup products are: Dimethicone Cyclomethicone Cyclo tri, tetra, penta, or hexasiloxane Polydimethylsiloxane Silanols or Dimethiconols Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone (Carbinol) Dimethicone copolyol My personal twitter @Blissomagirl : http://twitter.com/Blissomagirl Blissoma company twitter @Blissomaskin: http://twitter.com/Blissomaskin Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/blissoma Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/blissoma/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/blissomaskin

How to make Elderberry Extract to boost immunity naturally and stay well
 
17:06
When everyone around you is coming down sick the Elderberry is one of your best natural wellness remedies. It can shorten the time you have the influenza virus and keep you from getting so doggone sick. Syrups are available at the store but you can also make your own homemade version of this immune boosting berry extract at home. Put Elderberry extract (or tincture) in your juices, smoothies, and teas to enjoy it's healthy benefits. It's tasty and great for kids and adults. Add it to orange juice and kids will drink it right up. It's so nice to have something to give them that isn't filled with preservatives, synthetic chemicals, and drugs. This really helps your body in a healthy way! For a precise recipe amended to fit in your quart jar see my complementary blog post: http://www.iriefromthetub.blogspot.com/2013/12/how-to-make-elderberry-extract-boost.html I used a 5:1 ratio which is common for dried berries. You can use pure organic or sustainably distilled vodka straight to soak your berries or you can create a 50/50 blend of 95% pure alcohol and water. I ended up with my dilution a little strong because I forgot to allow for more room for the alcohol since it is lighter. Using straight vodka would of course eliminate that guesswork. Steep your berries for 2 to 6 weeks in a clean glass jar and then strain. Use 15 ml (1 Tablespoon) once a day for general use. Use 1 in the morning and 1 at night if you feel yourself starting to get sick with the flu. I also feature a liquid capsule herbal supplement from one of my favorite companies, Gaia Herbs. Their liquicaps are potent and very good quality extracts. They have an Elderberry capsule, Echinacea, and Echinacea/Goldenseal which is the one I have been using. Make sure you check with your health provider if you are on any medications to ensure there are no complications for you. I am not a doctor, just an herbal enthusiast and my statements are not intended to treat, prevent, diagnose, or cure any disease.

Colorful nutrition in natural skincare - Vitamins and antioxidants you can see
 
01:59
The vitamins and antioxidants in many plants have a natural color to them. This means you can literally see the nutrition in a potent natural skincare product. Vitamin A carotenoid compounds like in Sea Buckthorn oil and Rosehip seed oil are red. Grape seed proanthocyanidins are purple, and pomegranate extract is yellow. When you see color in a truly natural skincare product it is actually because of how pure and true that product is to the original source material. If there's no color you might want to question if there's actually enough nutrition for your skin. With Blissoma skincare products the color is the proof of how authentically potent all our products are.

This makeup tutorial will show you exactly how the pros create the right look so you can do it at home. Products for this look were acquired from The Nature of Beauty at http://www.thenatureofbeauty.com .
