Good evening, everyone! We are excited to announce that by the end of Spring, we will be launching our Etsy store! This will feature our DIY sugar scrubs, bath salts, and many new creations/collaborations to come. How do we prevent ourselves from exploding from excitement? We do this by discovering new Instagram Superstars – and of course a DIY rose bath salt!
D I Y R O S E B A T H S A L T
Like sugar scrubs, bath salts are extremely easy to make and only require a few ingredients – the essential ones being salt, a dried herb or flower, and flavor (essential oil or other method).
For this DIY, we decided to take a more cleansing approach to our ingredient choices.
I N G R E D I E N T S
⦁ Sea salt and/or pure epsom salt
⦁ Rose petals
⦁ Almond extract
⦁ Rose essential oil, optional
The instructions are simple: combine ingredients and mix until desired consistency is achieved! It’s as simple as that –
Every week, we dedicate one post to our five favorite Instagram users. We do this in hopes to share the blogging spotlight with another equally as deserving (if not more!), and to say “we acknowledge and appreciate all of the hard work that you do”.

Can we just take a moment to express how HAPPY we are that CBD and Hemp are legal in the US? This has been proven to be the most efficient way to treat Fibromyalgia, severe epilepsy, various cancers, and more. Topical CBD solutions are becoming more available, and when in need, look no further than iHeartHempCo! You name it, they’ve probably got it! We would love to do a collaboration with them in the near future. Keep pushing legalization!

About @saraalmen on Instagram:
Pictures are worth a thousand words – does this include Emojis? This Instagram user features everyday photos of her adventures in tropical paradises all over the world (mainly the Maldives). What’s better than having a fellow tropical account as a friend? Being in the Maldives. But until then, allow saraalmen to keep you envious.

Jen’s blog is amazing, and we suggest each of you to check it out and give it a read! We run a similar operation natural beauty wise, and that makes her the perfect collaboration partner – look out in the near future. As a holistic facialist and a massage therapist, she features few videos of her work, which we love! We would honestly love to see more videos, and would help in any way that we can! Keep doing you, girl. Thanks for fighting the fight in Natural Beauty!

One quick glance at their products, and you’ll start adding items to your card without a second guess. Hey, it happens to the best of us. We have a soft spot for handmade, natural products made in California – blame the inner desert rose in me. We cannot wait to try these products, and would love to collaborate with Chen in the near future.
