They say the eyes are the window to your soul – and for good reason. Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes and got an intuitive feeling about that person? If they’re kind, if they are angry, sad, happy…. The eyes share what the rest of our body has been trained by society not to. Shakira says that “hips don’t lie” but Bobbie-jo says “eyes don’t lie” 🙂 – you simply have to know how to read them. As a psychotherapist, I have been trained to do a lot of body language detecting.
As the Mason-Dixon DIY Diva, I want to help you keep those eyes and the rest of your body as healthy as possible by avoiding the junk in typical cosmetics that have a lot of controversy and debatable ingredients around them. Without naming names or companies, I will share about one I recently saw on the news, where Asbestos was reportedly found in makeup for kids. The report went so far as to say that if kids continued to use that makeup, they could be facing serious health problems (actually the researcher said death) by the ages of 30 and 40. Wow. Now that’s a problem.
So what I do in my DIY segments on TV, my blog, and at my local and international classes online, is show people how to make thier own natural products.
In the latest T.V. segment, I was asked to show how to make a natural makeup. So of course I went with the eyes- the window to the soul. ❤
Here is the recipe that I use when making my own Natural Eyeliner/Mascara.
I personally use ingredients in my natural DIY products that are organic, non-GMO and as close to toxin-free as physically possible 🙂
3/4 tsp Beeswax
1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp Shea Butter
2 tsp Aloe Vera gel
*Melt ingredients with a double boiler slowly under low heat (caution: heat means hot. So be sure to keep away from children, pets, yourself etc). Once liquified, add 1/4tsp activated charcoal. Blend gently. If you want to use as a mascara, add to an empty, new tube using a funnel. To use as an eyeliner, add to container and use an eyeliner brush to apply.
**as always, use at your own risk and don’t get it in your eyes. **
Have a great Sunday you all!! 💙 If you like this recipe and found this blog helpful, share it with your friends. We can live healthier- together 🙂
