"The average woman uses 12 products, containing 168 different ingredients daily." -EWG .. ^^Facts like this continue to inspire my mission to simplify healthy hair and skincare and to expose which of these ingredients belong no where near your body! .. Ok...off my soap box and on to Post #6 :) This is part of a series I've been doing on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. .. #6 in this series is DEODORANT (including antiperspirants, cologne and perfume) Here is the list of ingredients to avoid: .. -1- PARABENS . -2- FRAGRANCES OR PARFUM . -3- NITROSAMINES DEA, TEA OR MEA . -4- QUENTERIUM 15, DMDM HYDRANTOIN, GERMALL AND SUTTOCIDE . -5- POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG) . -6- SILOXANES AND SILICONES . -7- TRICLOSAN . -8- ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, SD ALCOHOL 40 AND ETHYL ALCOHOL . -9- ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM CHLORIDE, ALUMINUM CHLORHYDRATE ..

Hey y'all Happy Monday! How was your ACL weekend?? •• Today we're am so excited to share with y'all a new skin smoothing recipe we've been experimenting with - it's called Jojoba Coffee Scrub! 🌿☕️ •• INGREDIENTS • ( 1 ) ½ cup coffee grounds (can be previously brewed. If using previously brewed grounds, allow to dry completely before mixing) • ( 2 ) 1 cup fine white sugar or salt • ( 3 ) ½ cup JOJOBA OIL 👉LINK IN @bajabasics BIO👈 • ( 3 ) 16 oz. Mason jar or similar jar with lid • ( 4 ) Optional: 1 tsp cinnamon •• STEP 1 Combine coffee grounds, sugar, and cinnamon in the jar, add lid, and shake to combine. • STEP 2 Remove the lid from the jar and add the Jojoba oil. Use a spoon to stir so the coffee ground mixture is saturated. If it’s too oily, add more sugar until it’s the consistency you desire. • TO USE This scrub is messy, so I recommend standing in your tub while you scrub or on newspaper. Dampen skin, then use small amounts of the scrub and scrub in circular motions on arms, legs and torso (Pro tip: it’s also great for your bum!). Rinse well! •• What are your skin smoothing tips?? Please do share 😊 •• Hope you all have a great start to your week! ☀️ •• #smoothskin #scrub #coffee #recipe #coffeescrub #skinscrub #naturalbeauty #naturallynourishing #bajabasics #jojoba #jojobaoil #organiclife #holistic #holistichealth #healthyhair #diy #happymonday #acl #austin #atx #healthyskin

Hey heyyy, how was your weekend??! ... Today on this beautiful Monday I present you with post #4 - In case you missed the last few, this is a series on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products! .. #4 is FACIAL MOISTURIZERS (including anti-aging cream and lotions. For this post, I'm just going to list the ingredients. If you want ALL the details on WHY YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE THESE ON YOUR SKIN, check out my last post on facial cleansers. .. Without further ado, Here's the list of ingredients in moisturizers to avoid: .. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) . Parabens . Fragrances or parfum . Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA . Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) . PETROLATUM, PETROLEUM, MINERAL OILS, FARAFFIN OIL OR LIQUID PARAFIN (Stay tuned, I'll cover these in detail in a future post) . Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) . Triclosan . Siloxanes & Silicones (cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethinicone) . Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Butylated hydroxytoulene (BHA or BHT) .. **If you have sensitive skin, I'd recommend reducing the # of times/day you wash your face and use a very gentle cleanser or use the oil cleaning method with @bajabasics Jojoba oil** .. Also avoid frequent long hot showers or baths and use only lukewarm water on your face. You might also want to consider a chlorine filter for your shower! .. What are you using to moisturize your face these days?? Is it working for you or are you looking to try something new??! .. Let me know, I love hearing from y'all :) .. #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #moisturizers #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #atx #cleanproducts #healthandwellness #checklist #dirtydozen #personalcare #selfcare

Hey y'all! Here is post #2 on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. I'm doing a NEW POST SERIES covering everything from cosmetics to deodorant to moisturizers 😊 •• Today's focus is SHAMPOO & CONDITIONERS (including anti-dandruff shampoos) Here is a list of chemicals to avoid in the shower: •• [ 1 ] Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) • [ 2 ] Parabens (Including - Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben and Butylparaben) • [ 3 ] Fragrances or parfum • [ 4 ] Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA • [ 5 ] Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) • [ 6 ] Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) ••• ^^I covered these in detail in my last post on body washes^^ ••• [ 7 ] Isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol 40 and ethyl alcohol - These unnecessary alcohols have no nourishing qualities and can lead to dry, flaky skin while exacerbating acne • [ 8 ] Triclosan - Linked to abnormal endocrine system/thyroid hormone signaling and weakening of the immune system. Children exposed at an early age have an increased chance of developing allergies, asthma and eczema. • [ 9 ] Coal Tar - Effective treatment for psoriasis and eczema, but it contains potentially carcinogenic compounds • [ 10 ] Siloxanes & Silicones (cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethinicone) - Some types of silicones (siloxanes) may be harmful to the environment and can cause acne and congestion. They can also interfere with cell renewal and block nutritious ingredients from absorbing. •• **Consider these alternatives: Primal Life Organics, 100% Pure, Bentonite Clay, Goats Milk Soap and Castile Soap + Coconut Milk.** •• **Mild detergent alternatives to SLS and SLES are: Yucca Extract, Decyl Glucoside and Decyl Polyglucose** •• WHAT ALTERNATIVES DO YOU SUGGEST in place of mainstream shampoos and conditioners??!! I'd LOVE to hear from y'all 😊 •• #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #atx #cleanproducts #healthandwellness #checklist #dirtydozen #personalcare #selfcare

Thank you @kristenbrasseaux for sharing your story with us and revealing (through your own journey) the importance of investing in clean alternatives when it comes to hair and skincare and all other household products: •• "For me, two years of questionable health problems came to a head the night I lost my vision for more than an hour—which led to MRIs and test after test. I had some of the best doctors telling me they were positive it was a pituitary tumor, as that diagnosis would have lined up with all of my symptoms. It ended up being inflammation disguised as a tumor, and I suddenly started down the road of research. I became aware of how poorly America regulates what we put in and on our bodies, and my body finally told me it had had enough. I’m so thankful I was put in situation where I was forced to educate myself. Once I realized how detrimental streamlined brands were to my wellbeing, there was no going back for me. • I have transformed all skincare, hair care, household cleaning products and more to clean alternatives that I’m so happy to say are safe for my family’s health. • I love not having to worry about what I’m using when I put my jojoba oil on my face every night. I see a difference in my skin tone and have smoother, healthier skin than I’ve ever had. In one day I have two separate compliments about my “glowing” skin and know the difference is my oil. I can’t wait to add the rose water to my routine as well!" • - Kristen Brasseaux •• #testimonial #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #cleanproducts #anti -inflammatory #happythursday #preachit #healthandwellness

Hey y'all...HAPPY FRIDAY! My recipe for this week is a Moisturizing Jojoba Coconut Shampoo! •• What you'll need is: >> 1 Cup Shampoo Base - I recommend Desert Organics Fragrance Free >> 1/2 Cup Canned Coconut Milk - Yes! Believe it or not, coconut milk is perfect for adding moisture and restoring dry and damaged hair. •• >> 2 Teaspoons Jojoba Oil - I recommend @bajabasics NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON! (link in bio) This is my favorite oil for moisturizing the hair and skin because it absorbs easily and is non-greasy. •• >> 20 drops Orange EO >> 20 drops Tea Trea EO >> 20 Drops Essential Oils of your choice! Optional, but I'd recommend any of the following: Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Tangerine and Jasmine. •• Any combination of these oils is great for skin and hair. I like these oils because they are cleansing and full of antioxidants that fight against damage. This shampoo blend will be great for cleaning and nourishing your hair and scalp! •• Combine all ingredients in a 14oz squeeze bottle and voilà! Let me know once you've tried it, would love your feedback! :) •• HOW DO YOU SHAMPOO? I would be curious to know what, if anything you mix into your shampoo already! •• Hope to hear from you soon, have a WONDERFUL weekend! •• 📸: @danieljrigdon •• #naturalbeauty #naturallynourishing #bajabasics #jojoba #jojobaoil #organiclife #holistic #holistichealth #healthyhair #shampoo #diy #coconut #coconutmilk

HEY FRIENDS! How's Tuesday treatin' ya? 😊 •• So I did a post on the OIL CLEANSING METHOD a while back and I wanted to tell y'all that as I've been further experimenting (and researching this method) I definitely have not been doing it the most optimal way! •• I was literally just throwing together some oil and hot water and splashing it on my face and trying to "suds" up my face as I would with a cleanser. No WONDER THIS METHOD WASN'T WORKING FOR ME! •• I want to share with you today a SUPER SIMPLE WAY to CLEANSE YOUR FACE using Jojoba Oil (link in bio) 🌿 •• 1.) Don't worry about wetting your face beforehand, even if you have makeup on. 2.) Apply a quarter size amount of Jojoba oil to your palm with a dropper, rub on your fingers and then rub into your dry skin using circular motions. Make sure you really massage the oil deep into your face. Remember - oil cuts oil so you want to really give the good, clean Jojoba oil to break down all the dirty oil that has accumulated on your face. 3.) Wet a wash cloth with hot water and press the damp cloth to your face. Then begin to remove the oil and dirt, by sweeping the cloth across your face using circular motions. Really massage deep into your skin for a proper cleanse. 4.) Repeat the above steps if necessary for an even deeper cleanse. •• AND THAT's IT! I think y'all are going to enjoy this method, it's super relaxing and feels you're like taking a mini trip to the spa. •• What's your experience with the oil cleansing method?? I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY TIPS OR TRICKS 👍🏻 •• Please to share any insights you have! Thanks and hope you all have a wonderful evening 💫✨ •• PC: @danieljrigdon •• #oilcleansing #oilcleansingmethod #skin #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #hairandskincare #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #cleanproducts #happytuesday

HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS! •• I am SUPER EXCITED to share with you all a new blend I've been experimenting with to use as a face moisturizer 😊 •• The recipe is simple. I recommend using this serum after cleansing your face at night, either using the oil cleansing method or a natural face wash with simple ingredients. Try applying in the morning after showering as well! •• All you need is: -- 30 drops Frankincense -- 10 drops Melaleuca -- 10 drops Lavender -- 50 drops Jojoba Oil - I recommend @bajabasics •• Combine in a glass container (not plastic, as it can break down your essential oils). I love to recycle my old jojoba and EO bottles and re-use them for blends. •• AND THAT'S IT!!! •• I hope you like the blend and please reach out anytime, I'd love to hear from you all :) Which oils have you been experimenting with??? •• Hope y'all have a beautiful weekend! ☀️ •• #oilblends #oilrecipe #diyblends #diy #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #hairandskincare #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #cleanproducts #happyfriday

Hello BEAUTIFUL people! I hope you are all doing well on this FINE Tuesday 😊 •• Today I want to share a PODCAST with you that I stumbled upon a few days ago. It's called BREAKING BEAUTY: breakingbeautypodcast.com •• ^^Although not all the products they cover are what I would consider clean, I found this one episode interesting as they dive into an oil that has been selling off the charts. It's called Squalane. •• This particular Squalane oil by Biossannce is certified "Clean at Sephora." What does this mean? Well, according to Sephora's website all certified clean products are free from: •• "Sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclocarban. All skincare, hair, and makeup brands with the Clean Seal have less than one percent of synthetic fragrances." •• Pretty good, although I prefer products with 0% synthetic fragrances :) •• I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU ALL about the product. Have any of you tried Squalane oil??? If so, please enlighten us! 🙏 •• Hope you all have the BEST day! ☀️ •• #atxskincare #naturallynourishing #hairandskincare #sephora #squalane #squalaneoil #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #organiclife #naturalbeauty #cleanproducts #skincare

Happy Monday, y'all! Hope you are all having a fun + relaxing Labor Day! •• I don't mean to freak anyone out by sharing this article 😂 so please don't take it too seriously! The likelihood of an infection reaching your brain is VERY unlikely. BUT that being said, this article just reminded me how important it is to properly handle breakouts by allowing them to run their course and resisting the urge to pop them! •• There are better methods to try like applying a drop of pure, organic tea tree oil as a spot treatment. @sophie_kwok mentioned to me the other day that Thieves @younglivingeo also works well for treating breakouts. Thieves is a blend of blend of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary EOs! •• I have also been using @bajabasics Jojoba oil to protect open skin because it has anti-bacterial properties. The other day I got really scratched up at the greenbelt and applied Jojoba oil to keep my skin protected and to heal faster. It worked for me! •• Big thanks @trinitystennfeld for sharing this article! 🙏🏻😊💜☀️ •• nypost.com/2018/08/14/popping-a-pimple-in-the-triangle-of-death-could-kill-you/ •• #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #jojoba #jojobaoil #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare #healthyglow #naturalproducts #simpleingredients #100 %pure #pureproducts #triangleofdeath #organiclife #eo #essentialoils #theives #organicskincare

AND THAT'S A WRAP! .. We've completed the SKIN MAPPING series. I hope you all enjoyed learning about the various areas (“zones”) of the face and how they correlate to specific organs and reveal their condition :) .. Here's a short recap of the areas we discussed: .. 1) The FOREHEAD is a window to the liver and gallbladder. Excessive fat consumption and/or too much alcohol may cause breakouts in this area. Balance your system by minimizing rich foods and alcoholic beverages and drinking plenty of herbal tea and fresh water. Milk thistle and burdock root are often used to help support liver and gallbladder health .. 2) BETWEEN THE EYEBROWS The space between your eyebrows is also known as the “third eye.” It is said to be connected to your stomach and liver. Poor digestion and toxic buildup can lead to blemishes here. Try an elimination diet to rule out allergies/intolerances and consider doing a cleanse. Reducing caffeine, alcohol, and sugar to help improve digestive health. .. 3) UNDER THE EYES The area under your eyes represents the condition of your stomach, kidneys, and liver. If you are experiencing puffiness or dark circles under your eyes, consider reducing or removing alcohol, caffeine, and sugar from your diet. Drink plenty of water and detoxifying tea. Quality sleep is key as well! .. 4) TEMPLES AND BROW LINE Temples & brow line correlate to the kidneys. Issues in this region may indicate dehydration and/or overworked kidneys. Low back pain typically goes hand-in-hand with these symptoms. Try drinking more water and including superfoods in your diet, such as kale, spinach, berries, and algae!... .. JOIN OUR FB GROUP (LINK IN BIO) TO READ ABOUT THE NEXT SIX AREAS! -- #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #meditation #jojoba #jojobaoil #ayurveda #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare #healthyglow #selfcare #balanceddiet

B | A | L | A | N | C | E •• “As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve it. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from it. We deserve something better. We deserve the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity... •• ..A much more interesting, kind, adventurous, and joyful approach to life is to begin to develop our curiosity, not caring whether the object of our inquisitiveness is bitter or sweet.

Dear friends - yesterday I attended an event/yoga class organized by American Chiropractic Clinic. One of the wonderful women I met there shared part of her story with me. She said a few years ago she had a SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION to a preservative called methylisothiazolinone. This woman is healthy, eats well, exercises regularly and had no previous allergy issues. •• SO WHAT THE HECK IS METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE?!?! •• Well, it's probably in most of your hair and skincare products as well as your makeup. You've probably seen it many ingredient lists under names such as: •• 2-METHYL- 3 (2H) -ISOTHIAZOLONE; 2-METHYL-2H-ISOTHIAZOL-3-ONE; 2-METHYL-3 (2H) -ISOTHIAZOLONE; 2-METHYL-4-ISOTHIAZOLIN-3-ONE; 3 (2H) -ISOTHIAZOLONE, 2-METHYL-; 3 (2H) ISOTHIAZOLONE, 2METHYL; METHYLCHLOROISOTHIAZOLINONE225METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE SOLUTION; 2-METHYL-3 (2H) -ISOTHIAZOLONE; 2-METHYL-4-ISOTHIAZOLIN-3-ONE •• SO IS METHYL-manynamesattached BAD FOR YOU?!? •• Well...it's banned in Europe and is considered a "known human immune toxicant and allergen." You can read more about it on EWG's website. •• SO WHAT'S THE MORAL TO THE STORY??? •• Know what's in your products. You shouldn't have to Google the ingredients you are putting on your body. Allergic reactions can come out of nowhere, even if you don't have a history of allergies. •• That's why I am SUCH A FAN of single ingredient products like pure oils and waters that are cold pressed and distilled from plants. For example, you can use 100% pure argan oil as a leave in hair product. Or 100% jojoba oil as a face cleanser and/or moisturizer. Try pure rose water as a facial toner or perfume substitute. •• WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SINGLE INGREDIENT PRODUCTS?? •• Would love to hear from you all 😊 •• Hope you have a super Thursday ☀️ •• #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #allergicreactions #jojoba #jojobaoil #ayurveda #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare #healthyglow #naturalproducts #simpleingredients #100 %pure #pureproducts

Happy Monday, y'all! We hope you had a SUPER START to your week! •• We are on the LAST PART of the SKIN MAPPING series! •• Skin mapping (or "face mapping") is a technique originally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The idea is that YOUR FACE IS A MIRROR OF YOUR HEALTH. The various areas (“zones”) of the face correlate to specific organs and reveal their condition. •• #10 in the series is the LYMPH NODES •• The lymph nodes tell us a lot about stress levels and can sometimes determine if the body is trying to fight off sickness. Our glands get swollen when they are fighting off an illness - a good sign that our bodies are working hard to process out the bad bacteria. •• If your glands are irritated or swollen, take some time to rest and chill out by practicing self-care. Try getting extra rest, eating a balanced diet, practicing yoga, breathing exercises and meditation. Focusing on self-care can help reduce the emotional and physical stress that interferes with your body's natural healing process. •• HOW DO YOU PRACTICE SELF CARE?? •• Be kind to yourself this evening - I hope you have some fun and get some rest! •• Lotsa love to you all 💜🌿🌎🌻🌱 •• #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #lymphnodes #meditation #jojoba #jojobaoil #ayurveda #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare #healthyglow #selfcare #balanceddiet

Happy Thursday, friends ☀️ LET'S TALK ABOUT THE ART OF OIL PULLING! * Oil pulling is a very old Ayurvedic technique which has recently resurfaced. Oil pulls out bacteria and fungus when swished around in the mouth. This may help alleviate things like inflammation, congestion, allergies and can CLEAR SKIN BREAKOUTS. * DOES SWISHING OIL AROUND IN YOUR MOUTH FOR 20 MINS EVERY MORNING SOUND FUN?!? Well...it might take some getting used to, but other benefits include improvement in oral hygiene and whiter teeth! * Oil pulling also helps with: •• Bad breath •• Bleeding gums •• Cavities •• Gingivitis •• Plaque •• Sensitive teeth •• Moistening the mouth, * INSTRUCTIONS 1) Put 1-2 tsps of oil in your mouth. Coconut, sunflower, jojoba, or oil of your choice. 2) Swish around your mouth and between your teeth. Start with 5 minutes and work up to 20 or more! 3) Spit in the garbage to avoid clogging your pipes with contaminated oil. 4) Rinse your mouth with salt water or water/apple cider vinegar to get all the oil out of your mouth 5) Brush your teeth! 6) Smile in the mirror and thank yourself for taking the time to take care of yourself so that you can show up for the world in a big way! 😁 * #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #oilpulling #oilswishing #coconutoiluses #coconutoil #jojoba #jojobaoil #ayurveda #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you are all having a FANTABULOUS day so far ☀️🌿🌻🌎 • We are on part 9 of the SKIN MAPPING series! • Skin mapping (or "face mapping") is a technique originally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The idea is that YOUR FACE IS A MIRROR OF YOUR HEALTH. The various areas (“zones”) of the face correlate to specific organs and reveal their condition. • #9 in the series is JAWLINE • The jawline is considered to be connected to the ovaries and colon. Breakouts here can be triggered by hormonal stress. A regular menstrual cycle can help keep hormones and circulation healthy. • During menstruation, women should try including more greens and hydrating foods. A balanced, low-glycemic diet of lean protein, fruits, veggies and healthy fats is ideal. Quality sleep also helps as well as keeping stress levels under control. Try incorporating 10 minutes of meditation into your morning routine or practicing yoga at least once a week. • #naturallynourishing #naturalbeauty #organicskincare #holistic #holistichealth #bajabasics #bajabasicsbeauty #beautyoils #jawline #practiceyoga #meditation #jojoba #jojobaoil #ayurveda #organicoils #atx #atxorganic #atxskincare
