Inner peace promotes outer beauty; enhancing outer beauty fosters an internal sense of well being, which then reflects outward, In other words, when you feel good , you look good and when you look good, your feel good!
Treating yourself to a facial, a massage or rejuvenating eye treatment can help you achieve both.
When you use time honored ancient recipes that incorporate detoxifying natural clays,
invigorating herbs and emotionally balancing remedies, the toxins release, the herbal energy boosts and the homeopathic calming create a magnificent glow of inner and outer rejuvenating tranquility!
The Skin is the largest organ on our body. looking at our skin from a side view you can see it is made of several different layers.The outer layer is exposed to the sun, cosmetics, harsh chemicals and other toxic elements. Your face is truly a reflection of your physical, emotional and spiritual state.
The Color of your skin signals the condition of your circulatory system,
If you are pale or sallow, blood isn’t moving as it should be.
BAGS UNDER THE EYES are not only indications of fatigue but also poor circulation and lymphatic congestion.
Stress is the culprit behind all our less radiating moments.
Stress comes in many forms, whether it’s emotional aggravation and negativity or the body trying to process and eliminate toxins, like too much sugar, alcohol or pesticides.
What you eat and how you metabolize will show up on your face.If you truly want to be radiant and feel great, incorporate healthy eating and exercise and find inner peace through MEDITATION and other spiritual endeavors…and of course treating yourself to a HOME SPA TREATMENT with Sweet Earth !

ALWAYS PERFORM A PATCH TEST TO CHECK FOR ALLERGIC REACTION BEFORE USING ESSENTIAL OILS OR ANY OTHER NATURAL REMEDIES ON YOUR SKIN.
Relieving Insect Bites/Bee Stings
Bees inject a protein in the blood when they sting that can lead to an allergic reaction. To neutralize this protein before the body absorbs it, crush 3-4 Bromelain Tablets, add enough water to make a paste and apply as soon as possible to the affected area.
Please consult with your doctor before taking Bromelain if you have stomach ulcers. Some studies indicate that bromelain can prevent stomach ulcers while other evidence shows that if the stomach is already ulcerated, large amounts of bromelain delays the healing process.
Some people can develop a rash from large doses of bromelain, If you develop a skin irritation, stop using bromelain immediately.
Honey Wound Dressing
Applied Externally, Honey is an excellent wound dressing helping to heal minor cuts and abrasions by drawing the excess water from the tissues and reducing swelling. In addition, honey contains a germ-killing substance called inhibine which helps prevent infections. Spread Honey directly on the wound and cover with a sterile bandage. Manuka Honey is costly, but holds the highest healing properties. See our post for Manuka Honey for more info!
Vinegar Solution for Itchy Skin
Cider Vinegar contains many key vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes, as well as valuable fruit acids. It’s unique properties make cider vinegar superior to other kinds of vinegar. If you are purchasing cider vinegar anywhere other than our shop, please be sure you purchase organic for this is the only cider vinegar that is guaranteed to be pure.
Soak a linen cloth in equal amounts of cider vinegar and water. Wring out the cloth and apply to the affected part of the body.
Vinegar can also be used as a rinse to relieve dry and itchy skin.
To treat dandruff, vinegar can be applied directly to the scalp before shampooing.
Lemon Juice soothes sunburn.
Dilute 1 part Lemon Juice to 1 Part Water . If you have bottled or filtered water, I recommend using this. It is optional. (e.g. 1 Cup Lemon Juice to 1 Cup Water, )
Using a cotton ball gently apply diluted lemon juice to sunburned skin. the Lemon Juice Works as an astringent, relieving pain.
You can also place 4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil PER CUP of water to add more relief. lavender soothes the nerves in the skin, relieving the stinging feeling of sunburn. (external use only)
Lemon Juice can serve as an emergency disinfectant for minor wounds or lesions in the mouth and through such as canker sores. Apply a mixture of water and Lemon juice directly to mouth sores or gargle with mixture several times a day. Do not use Lavender Essential Oil if using in mouth or lips.
1/2 cup dried, powdered Calendula Flowers
