Organic Foaming Hand Soap DIY


Do It Yourself Organic Foaming Hand Soap

This was my first time making homemade foaming hand soap.  I had no idea how easy and fun it would be to make own. It really felt like I performed a magic trick when I pumped that soap pump and this beautiful billowy white puff of soap filled my hand!


Cove Unscented Pure & Vegan Castile Soap

Made From Certified Organic Plant Oils

 You need to start with a good organic soap base. I am using an unscented Castile soap by Cove.  This Castile soap is vegan, organic and free of detergents, foaming agents,  chemicals, fragrances, and animal products.

Unlike other castile soaps, we don’t use palm kernel oil because its cultivation leads to the destruction of our rainforests. Ours is a simpler soap with a smaller ecological footprint. –Cove


foaming hand soap
This multi-purpose soap is meant to be diluted.

Cove has also added Certified Organic Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil,  Hemp Oil,  Olive Oil,  and Vegetable Glycerin to their Castile soap to make it more moisturizing. I still add a little more V-6 oil because I really want my foaming soap to be extra moisturizing.

Organic Foaming Hand Soap DIY Recipe

Foaming hand wash recipe

Add all your ingredients to your foaming soap dispenser and give a little swish to combine the ingredients. I usually give my dispenser a swish everyday to make sure the ingredients stay combined, because water and oil tends to separate.

Benefits from each of the 3 varieties 

ROSEMARY FOR SOOTHING INFLAMMATION A natural disinfectant; soothes and reduces inflammation and treats bacterial and fungal infections.

LAVENDER FOR GENTLE NOSE CARE A clean, fresh scent and calming, balancing properties; provides ultra-gentle skin care and can be applied to irritated, itchy spots as a healing aid.

PUMPKIN FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE Used to treat burns and wounds; heals environmentally damaged and sensitive skin; high in Vitamin A (restores healthy skin tissue) and C (antioxidants protect skin from free radicals).


Snoutstik Nose Balm For Dogs Review
Zander is 14 yrs old and gets a very dry nose, but after using Snoutstik a few days his nose looks much better.


I was sent the Pumpkin Snoutstik to review. My sweet Zander is getting so old that his nose dries out and becomes crusty and full of dirt. I couldn’t wait to try the Snoutstik Nose Balm out on his sweet little nose. It was very easy to apply since it comes in a tube like lip balm, just twist the bottom of the tube and the balm will advance out the top for easy application. The Pumpkin Snoutstik is good for sensitive skin and contains Vitamins A, C, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil which makes the stick very emollient and just glides on his tender skin.  Zander loves his Snoutstik and his nose feels and looks so much better.

–Azure Naturals


Things I love about the Ultimate Vitamin C Skin Repair Serum 

  • Made in the USA

  • Highest Quality Natural and Organic Ingredients

  • No Alcohol

  • No Parabens

  • Gluten Free

  • Plant Based

  • No GMO’s

  • Cruelty Free and Never Tested On Animals

  • 1 YEAR – 100% Money Back Guarantee


The following statements are from Azure Naturals and used with their permission.

VITAMIN C WORKS! Our serum will increase cellular renewal by boosting the production of collagen and elastin. Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid, and Vitamin E are all powerful anti-oxidants that when combined can provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, 96% reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin. Our serum is intentionally designed to be thin, but not greasy or watery. This is the optimal consistency for a Vitamin C serum and allows the potent ingredients to deeply penetrate your skin to repair sun and other environmental damage, while boosting production of new collagen and elastin.


WHY AZURE NATURALS? Our ULTIMATE VITAMIN C is 100% guaranteed to be the fastest working and most effective Vitamin C Serum on the market today. Compare our ingredients to similar product from Skinceuticals, Obagi, and PerriconeMD. Not only will you find we have superior organic and natural ingredients our Vitamin C serum is $80 to $130 less expensive per bottle! More expensive does not mean it works any better! If you don’t care about wasting money, you should still buy our product because it works better! You can donate $100 you save to charity!


HOW DO YOU RECEIVE OPTIMAL RESULTS? Just like exercise, it is very important to use your skin care products consistently. VITAMIN C serum can be applied twice per day in the morning and at night. If you only use the serum once do so in the morning. Vitamin C serum will help protect you against future sun damage and other environmental stressors, but it is definitely not a substitute for sun screen! Your skin’s texture should start to improve with the first application, but give your skin at least 30 days of consistent use to see the optimal results. Follow with our ULTIMATE HYALURONIC Moisturizer, ULTIMATE RETINOL, or another good moisturizer. Our Vitamin C serum is safe for all skin types and conditions including dry or irritated skin, wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexion, acne, and eczema, etc. You should not experience any dryness, but if you do you are most likely applying too much of the serum. If you have dry skin start slowly, especially around any areas that are prone to dryness. You can begin to apply more serum gradually as your skin adjusts.

UNi 100% Rosehip Seed Oil Review



UNi 100% Rosehip Seed Oil 

USDA Organic and ECO Certified


This is the second product from UNi that I have had a chance to review. The first product was their 100% Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil  which I still use today and enjoy very much. Now I am a fan of UNi’s 100% Rosehip Seed Oil too. Their Rosehip Seed oil is both USDA Organic and ECO Certified by ECOCERT ICO, chemical free, with no additives. The Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed Oil) is imported from Chile and bottled in the U.S.A. 

Rosehips have been used by ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans all because of their healing properties. The beauty industry is starting to see the benefits of these healing ingredients as an alternative to the chemicals they have relied on in the past. Rosehip seed oil is a natural source of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamins C & A which aids in regenerating skin cells and repairing damaged skin tissue.

The oil is a beautiful rich amber color that absorbs quickly into the skin leaving it soft, supple and moisturized. The oil has a light natural scent that quickly fades away. I like to use my Rosehip Seed Oil on my face, neck, hands, and any other dry or trouble spots on my body.  

UNi 100% Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil is Beneficial for the Following:


  • wrinkles

  • scars

  • stretch marks

  • rashes

  • burns

  • dry skin

  • dermatitis

  • age spots

  • psoriasis

  • eczema

  • hyperpigmentation  

  • sun damage

  • brittle nails

  • dry and damaged hair

Freedom Super Foods Organic Raw Cacao Powder Review + Recipe

  • Non fermented beans
  • Antioxidant rich superfood
  • Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Copper & other nutrients 
  • Highly alkalizing 
  • Sourced from small sustainable family farms
  • 60 Day no questions asked guarantee


I couldn’t wait to open up my bag of raw cacao powder from Freedom Super Foods. Inside the bag was this beautiful fine, silky smooth chocolate powder. Yum… It smelled heavenly!

Organic Raw Cacao Powder


I had to taste it right out of the bag. I didn’t know what to expect since it was unsweetened and raw cacao powder. It wasn’t bad. It had a nice dark chocolaty rich flavor.

I thought to myself “I need to make some brownies!”

When you order your bag of raw cacao powder you will also get an e-book with some recipes in it. There is a brownie recipe included but it has gluten in it. I needed a Paleo recipe for brownies, so I researched online and tested a few recipes and came up with my own super moist and chocolaty Paleo gluten-free brownie recipe. I hope you love these brownies as much as I do. I really love the flavor the raw cacao powder gives the brownies plus I feel good about all the nutrients, flavonoids and antioxidants that are  in the cacao powder.

UNi 100% Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil Review


UNi 100% Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil

Cold Pressed, Unroasted, Unrefined

Triple Extra Virgin Grade & Certified


I received a bottle of Uni Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil for review in the mail, and I couldn’t wait to open it up and try it.  I put a few drops in the palm of my hand and briskly rubbed my hands together to warm up the oil.  The oil has a slight nutty scent that dissipates quickly. The oil quickly absorbs into the skin because it has a similar chemical composition to our skin’s own natural sebum. So your skin is not left feeling greasy, just soft and lovely. I have fallen in love with my UNi Organic Pure Moroccan Argan Oil and will definitely incorporated it into my daily routine. My skin feels and looks better than it has for years after using my new UNi Argan oil for the last few weeks.

A little bit goes a long way. I just use a few drops at a time, warm it up in the palms of my hands and pat it on my face and neck after a shower.  I have noticed an improvement in the skin under my eyes, the little fine lines and wrinkles look much more hydrated and less apparent. I warm up a few more drops and gently apply it all over my body focusing on any extra dry areas. While my hair is still wet and my hands still have oil on them I run my hands through my hair to add a little conditioning to my hair and scalp too.

Argan oil is rich with vitamins A, E and D, essential fatty acids, phenols and phenolic acid, antioxidants, squalene, carotene, and sterols. Because of these special ingredients that Moroccan Argan oil possesses and its many benefits, it is also know as “liquid gold.”  Argon oil is a plant-based oil produced from the kernels of the Argon (Argania Spinosa) tree. Argon trees live only in the semi-desert of South-Western Morocco and the Tindouf region of Algeria and can live as long as 250 years. Argan trees need at least 50 years to reach fruiting maturity.

Benefits of Daily Use of Argan Oil


  • improves skins elasticity, firmness and complexion

  • rejuvenate and renew skin cells on your face 

  • help reduce age spots and boost skin tones

  • promotes healthy hair growth and reduces split ends

  • helps with irritated or itchy skin

  • reduce the appearance of acne and reduce acne scars

  • helps to treat psoriasis, inflammation and dry eczema  

  • help minimize stretch marks


I am so glad that I was introduced to 100% pure Moroccan Argan oil by UNi. I know I can trust in the authenticity of their oils. UNi’s Pure Moroccan Argan oil has been graded and tested to be triple extra virgin quality ranking it to be the highest purity and the finest Argan oil in the market. It is USDA organic certified, non diluted with no additives or preservatives. The product is tested and bottled in strict pharmaceutical compliant facilities. Uni guarantees 5 Star Purity on all their Argan oil products.
