I have always enjoyed products that are natural, but resently I have become more aware of my environment. Right now I'm switching over to natural and organic cosmetics after learning about companies that test on animals.
I just replaced my lipstick with a Burt's Bees lip crayon, color Napa Vineyard, I love it! You can shop online or at your local drug store, walmart and target have them too.
Yeasterday my hand got swollen from the whole being pregnant. I noticed it because my ring on my right hand was getting really tight and starting to hurt. I tried a few methods I found on YouTube to get it off but in the end my husband had to cut it off for me. I immediately pulled my wedding ring off which was slightly larger and still lose enough to with effort pull off. So I guess they are hanging on a chain around my neck till baby Brook gets here in about 4 weeks or so now.
Smelling the roses has taken on a new meaning to me as of the last month or so. Being pregnant has made me feel well like crap really. I went through food not tasting right and every smell in the world (including perfume) bothering me. One night I was on Pintrest and I had an urge to look at and smell roses a smell that could never make me feel sick. Next thing I was searching online for a pure rose oil to wear as a perfume. I would compare it to a food craving almost, I had an urage to smell roses. Well I then started reading about rose oil and rose water and discovered its a mood booster. Perfect for a moody pregnant woman right?
We moved about a month ago to a new appartment and guess what the place has two or three large rose bushes with red and yellow roses. I remembered I use to make rose water as a kid playing in my moms roses. I never made it right though. So I went on line and found how to boil distiled water, turn it off pop some washed rose petals in let them set over night pour the water in a jar pop it in the fridge and bam I had a wonderful smelling rose water that I use daily for everything from a body spray to a makeup setting spray, face toner, hair spray and room spray.
I also added fresh roses to my room and bathroom and I have to say I have noticed such a marked difference in my mood.
It's hard to stay grumpy for too long if you wake up to a room that smells like roses or fist thing when you open your eyes in the morning you see a pretty rose in your window.
So while I won't say roses will cure depression or moodiness I will say they will help, and when you find something that makes you happy that won't harm you surround yourself with it. For me it's roses right now for you it might be another thing. Just find something you can use to smell the roses.
