Why I use a natural body moisturiser…

I am horrified by the number of chemicals in shop bought skincare products. Since discovering lots of amazing recipes on Pinterest, I have developed my own moisturiser, using a blend of various carrier and essential oils. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils, as essential oils are too concentrated to use directly on the skin.

 My favourite oils for the body moisturiser are Shea butter, Coconut oil, Almond oil, Avacado oil, Frankincense and Lavender (Amazing for the skin!) I do not recommend this moisturiser for your face. Coconut oil has a high comedogenic rating,which refers to the oil’s ability to clog pores.

I also make the following blends to add to the carrier oils:

  •  Patchouli and Grapefruit (Great for achy muscles)
  •  Lavender and Helichrysum ( The benefits are numerous)
  • Peppermint and Eucalyptus ( A must when you have a cold)
  • Custom made blend made to order

Food, Fibromyalgia and Me

Changing my life 1 day at a time. Welcome everybody to my Food and Fibromyalgia blog, a page about my life trying to overcome Fibromyalgia and how much I love food. My name is Jess Smith. I am young professional in her early 20s, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I have decided it's time for me to take my life in my own hands and take a months sick leave, I will spend my time trying to heal myself both physically and mentally. Using this blog I would like to take you on this journey with me, I will be writing a short post everyday, whether anyone reads it or not, about what I'm doing, how I'm feeling, my progress and what I've eaten. I am stuck in a rut and I need to knock myself out of it, it's hard to explain to those that don't have this condition about how it feels but I will try my best to educate those that are unfamiliar and provide some comfort for those that are also sufferers.
