What you have to know about using essential oils
For most of us kitchen magic refers to our ability to make tasty and nutritious food. We live in such a consumer society but even those of us who have managed to ditch the processed food still trot off to the drugstore or the health food shop to buy out skincare essentials. In this podcast episode Militza Maury talks about the ah ha moment when she realised the outbreaks she was experiencing on her skin were related to her internal thoughts. She shares how she started making lotions and beauty products for her family as she began to realise how questionable the ingredients in the products she was buying. As time went by she began to share the results of her experiments in hugely popular workshops.
In Western cultures we are fed the idea that only expensive ingredients are effective. Militza talks about visiting many different spas in Bali and learning that in the land of relaxation and pampering great pride is taken in recipes for skin handed down through the generations. Learn how some of the best ingredients you can use for your skin are probably already in your kitchen cupboard.
