Guide To Essential Oils. An OIL BREAKDOWN 5 | by The Skinny ConfidentialOIL BREAKDOWN 13 | by The Skinny Confidential

GUYS! Today my younger sister Faye is going to talk about something she lovessss: ESSENTIAL OILS. You may remember Faye from a vintage TSC feature OR from the podcast where she so bravely opened up about her struggle with addiction– either way, my sister knows her shit when it comes to oils. She also knows me better than anyone, so when she recommended I clean my kitchen with Theives & diffuse Tangerine every morning ( like I said, she knows me well! ), I listened. Definitely my two favorites right now.

Anyway, I’m obsessed with essential oils & you should be too. They’re something that sets the ambience, you know? They create a mood. Moods that can be relaxing ( hi Lavender! ), uplifting ( talking to you, Eucalyptus! ), or even invigorating ( why I love Tangerine! ). Mood is so important, in my opinion. A little Bossanova, some candles, a warm cup of tea, & oils diffusing really sets the scene. I love a good scene.

SO! Faye is going to breakdown some of her favorite oils & show you how she uses them. Once you commit to oils, you will never go back!

As you know, …

ARE YOU READY.

BUT REALLY. Are you ready to talk about ESSENTIAL OILS.

I have never gotten so many questions as I have gotten about essential oils via Snapchat & Instagram.

First off, I, Lauryn Evarts am MADLY, OBSESSED, CRAZY, DEEP IN LOVE with essential oils.

But, before I blogged about them, you better bet your ass I did my research.

And wow, GUYS (!!!) they are INSANE.

( By the way, if you think this is sponsored, it’s not. I have never been so obsessed with anything. THESE OILS are MAGIC POTION ).

Sure, I’m like a fucking witch doctor mixing my oils every day but did you know that they’re hundreds of years old with TONS ( AND I MEAN TONS ) of benefits.

Before you think I’m crazy, consider the research:

There are three basic ways you can incorporate essential oils into your life:

♡ Aromatically ( my favorite ): I personally like to use a diffuser. You can also rub 2–3 drops of essential oil between your palms and inhale deeply.

♡ Topically: Rub a few drops on the desired area of your body. Use it as massage oil or simply apply it to …

NEWSFLASH: Is The Way You Sleep Giving You Wrinkles? I’ve Got You Covered

Some people try to act like sleep isn’t a big deal. Well, I disagree.

It’s literally the foundation of youth & effectiveness. We tend to spend 6-8 hours sleeping so your sleep situation should very much be optimized. This means putting some thought into the way you sleep- like the vibes you create while you sleep & how long you sleep.

Personally, I need at least 8 hours- but like 8 & a half if I’m being a greedy bitch. I usually am.

We’ve gone over my whole obnoxious nighttime routine before ( the oil diffuser is on, the salt rock lamp is glowing, my TWO noise machines are going, the lights are dim, the Barefoot Dreams blankets are out, my head is on a silk pillowcase & my books are ready to read ), but recently I’ve started to pay attention to my sleep position.

Then The Daily Mail came out with an article …

Holistic Beauty Tips and Tricks

My sister Faye introduced me to her friend Shalene Bain about a year ago & raved about her & how she created NoSH BoDY. Shalene grew up in a very spiritual household & with a Native American mother who was all about holistic wellness. She is very into Eastern medicine, but her husband is a plastic surgeon & very much into Western medicine. This is so interesting to me!

Anyway, I started using her products a lot when I became pregnant because they’re all natural & I’ve taken more of an interest in what I put on my skin. This post comes at a perfect time & she’s so knowledgeable when it comes to clean beauty. NoSH BoDY is natural, organic, earth friendly, sustainable, kid safe & doctor approved.

Out of all her products my favorite is the apricot oat calm balm. It’s so hydrating & nourishing & feeds your skin all these …

Spray Tan Tips: Keeping It Safe For Pregnancy

organic spray tan

The one thing that really bummed me out when I got pregnant, if we’re being real here, was the fact that I couldn’t get my weekly spray tans anymore.

There’s something about going into a booth & getting sprayed with this suspicious stuff that doesn’t feel right, especially when you’re carrying a baby. My intuition told me it wasn’t good. Sure enough, I went to Google, & Google said HELL NO.

Not being tan for my whole pregnancy was a horrific thought because I like a nice glow. After investigating other options, I found this organic spray solution that some companies use, & it’s totally non toxic.

The one I found has high quality, cruelty free, vegan products. So, here’s the thing. I have yet to find a place that actually uses this sugar spray in a facility. They actually have to come to your house which is a real bitch because it costs more. …
