Here is a recipe for a lavender and honey face scrub I used to make when I was studying at University and had an assignment or was feeling a bit worried coming up to exams. The face scrub is made with quite simple ingredients (including lavender flowers, lavender oil, (organic) honey, lemon juice, brown sugar and organic coconut oil) you could hopefully find in your garden and at your local shop 🌸
As the autumn has come in New Zealand (where I am from) and the leaves on the trees have started to change colour turning light brown and to gently fall, the temperatures are also a bit cooler and there are often frosts in the morning. Here are a couple of ways to help to stay a bit warmer in the cooler autumn weather ✨
Here is a recipe for a warm lemon, honey and fresh ginger drink my Mum used to make when we were little and had a cold 🍯 I often make the lemon and honey drink when the weather is cooler in the autumn and winter or if I have a cold, as the lemons in the drink are full of vitamin C and the honey helps to soothe a sore throat.
I was gifted a moringa body mist from the Body Shop by my Uncle and his family for my birthday, and the body mist is so beautiful, feels so lovely to use and comes in a generous and clear glass bottle 🕊 I hadn't tried a body mist from the Body Shop before, or a bath or body care product with the moringa flavour, and I enjoy using the body mist a lot.
I recently bought a caring roll-on deodorant from the Body Shop in Aloe, and just finished using the deodorant. I had been looking for a natural, quite gentle deodorant which was still effective as I often do yoga and go for quite long walks with our puppy, and the caring deodorant in Aloe was so beautiful and felt so lovely to use.
INFPs are one of 16 myers-briggs personality types, and I am an INFP. The four letters in INFP stand for introversion (I), intuition (N), feeling (F) and perception (P) and describe four preferences which are most natural, and feel most comfortable to use, to help to understand and navigate the world. I first took the myers-briggs test when I was 16 and I came up as being an INFP 🕊
