It's Coming Along- My Own Brand

If you didn't know I started my own natural brand Eco Makes Perfect! I have perfume oils, scrubs and such! I haven't launched my Etsy shop yet but I do have my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram set up!  (I am taking personal/local orders right now though)
It's really coming along and I am so excited about it. I have so many Fall and Winter scents (like Pumpkin Spice Latte, Vanilla Chai, and Peppermint Mocha) 
I have been getting a lot of supplies from Etsy, it makes scents to support others while getting my stuff to get my products up and running. And my experience with Etsy sellers has been nothing but great! Here are some items and shops I'm loving.

Nature's Oil- I got some Coffee and Bergamot essential oils along with some Sweet Almond oil. I am SO impressed with the scents of the essential oils, they are PERFECT! The coffee literally smells like walking into Starbucks (and my sister works at Starbucks and says it smells just like their espresso beans). The Bergamot is a wonderful earthy scent, it's gonna be great for my products. 
OH! And the Almond oil! It's a huge (16 oz bottle) for less than $5!! SUCH a great deal!
And their pricing is wonderful! I plan on buying more from this shop!

MorningStar- Here's where I got my Perfume Oil bottles from, they are priced well and it got here in 3 DAYS! How awesome is that? Very impressed!

DreamsOfCaedryn-And this is the shop I got my perfume sample bottles from! Once again great price and I got it fast! 

I hope you'll check out my shop when it's up! I'll do a post when it is! :)

Face Mask Monday- Oatmeal

I know what you might be thinking...Oatmeal on your face? 
YEP! Oatmeal is very calming and soothing to the skin and is great for inflammation (and acne). 

So what I do is cook a little bit of oatmeal either on the stove or put some oats in a bowl and pour hot water over it. Let it set in the fridge till it isn't cold but cool. Then just carefully rub it on damp skin and let it set for about 15 minutes. This is best done in the shower or bath since it can be messy.
After that just remove gently with a warm rag or wet paper towel. (I think the paper towel works best for more sensitive skin like mine.)

I do this almost every night and my skin has looked so much smoother and clearer. It helps brighten my skin and even it out.

Let me know if you try this!
