You Need to CUT that Coconut Oil.

You Need to CUT that Coconut Oil.

So...have you tried coconut oil on your face yet?

Are you moisturizing your entire body with it? Swishing it around in your mouth 20 minutes a day? Remineralizing your teeth with it? Adding it to your Bullet Proof Coffee? Smoothing it onto your hair? Using it for Sunscreen? Killing lice with it? Treating Diaper Rash? Deodorizing your pits? Preventing Alzeheimer's? Treating yeast infections? Replacing WD40? Frying donuts? Shaving? Making it your Bridesmaid?

 

It's true: All of these things are potentially awesome uses for coconut oil...well...maybe minus the bridesmaid part...I'm not ruling it out, though.

Coconut Oil (REAL, RAW) is truly an amazing lipid.

There are deep mysteries, and several quantifiable reasons WHY coconut oil is La Huile du JOUR. 

And I am sure that you have read them all.

Natural Deodorants that Don't Make You Stink

Natural Deodorants that Don't Make You Stink

You guys caught on to Portlandia yet? It's on Netflix. It's my next binge-watch, as soon as I have a whole day to sit on the couch, eat popcorn and dark chocolate, and drink unlimited amounts of whatever I want. (Man, that sounds good!) Meanwhile, check this (hilarious) video out. It's a spoof on natural deodorants and their reputation in the market as ineffective. And know that this is exactly the attitude that most consumers have toward natural deodorants in general. In fact, at every (every) EVERY market that we sell our deodorants, the first question we are always asked is,

The Future Needs a BIG KISS!

The Future Needs a BIG KISS!

Well, friends- It's FINALLY happened: The realization of a DREAM-COME-TRUE! Our Skin Care Foundry and Showroom is now open, running, and already quadrupled in sales from the previous weeks! We hit our 3-month projected sales benchmark the day we opened, accelerated by a HUGE purchase order from one of our private label accounts! They've just sold their company to the second-largest natural health products supplier in America, and guess what went with the sale?

My Experience with Henna Hair {Part 2}

My Experience with Henna Hair {Part 2}

I've warned you. I've scared you to death with stories of melting hair and orange roots till Kingdom come and hair-shaming by your stylists. I've completely excused myself from any liability that may result from using henna on your hair.

ps...my favorite disclaimer: In Layman’s (Lehmann’s) terms, with multicolor: If you mess up your hair with henna, it’s on you. Capiche? Perfect.
And yet you're still here... I guess you ain't skeered. I wasn't either. Now then, Allons-Y! Let's get RED. This is how I do it:

My Experience with Henna Hair {Part 1}

My Experience with Henna Hair {Part 1}

 

Henna for hair coloring is a commitment. If you don't like your particular shade of red achieved with henna, you can correct it by adding other plants, like cassia or indigo, and reapplying it. But in general, you won't be able to completely remove your henna color without time or scissors or bleach. One final note: One of my BFFs is my hairstylist, and she applies my henna for me. She knows my long term desire is to keep it red (auburn), and natural, and she knows we are doing this until I decide to go full-on gray. I love working with her, because our combined knowledge of synthetic dyes and henna allow us to achieve perfect results every time. If you have this type of relationship with your colorist, perhaps he/she would be amiable to a similar agreement. It would be VERY beneficial for you to have professional help with henna application.

10 Things I Learned by Saying

10 Things I Learned by Saying "Yes" in 2014

By nature, I have always been an extremely cautious person. In fact, I've maintained, these past 4 years, that I don't possess the true spirit of "Risk-Taking" that is so commonly inherent among entrepreneurs...I often see an opportunity, assess the risk, begin asking the what-ifs, and then get sick to my stomach. I never enter a challenge that I am not CERTAIN that I can win. And that usually ends the opportunity. But this past year was different: This year, by some strange possession of character, I started saying "YES" in moments I would normally say "No". And it has made ALL the difference in my direction. Who knows- maybe it was because I turned 40 this past year. Or maybe it was because my team declared it the year of the Honey Badger- no more messing around.

Last Week, I Almost Killed Savvy Bohème.

Last Week, I Almost Killed Savvy Bohème.

As I have journeyed down this road with you, I've encountered lots of hardships- launching and running a manufacturing business is MUCH more difficult than I dreamed it would be, back in 2010, when I would lie in my bathtub, imagining the possibilities, dreaming of the glamorous life of a cosmetic mogul! haha!! Thank God I had NO IDEA what awaited me. I would have quit before we began, for sure. This adventure has been surreal for the much of the time- I've formed relationships and partnerships with people I never in my life would have imagined meeting...includingYOU.

Stuff MOMpreneurs Say

Stuff MOMpreneurs Say

I know you already know what it's like:

  • interrupted meetings
  • business and personal issues interwoven into the same moments
  • non-stop, never-ending work
  • successes and failures occurring within seconds of each other
  • the desire to raise your children but maintain a sense of "balance" with work as well...
  • And the forgetfulness...OH, the forgetfulness...I'm sooooo sorry....

Life Interrupted

Life Interrupted

I just wanted to pop in to let you know what YOU have done for others. It makes me so grateful and proud of you all. And very hopeful. When we launched, we KNEW that we had the obligation and pleasure of  sharing our prosperity with others. We get to carry each other, ya know? It's a joy to do so. We chose Family Legacy, a ministry for the orphans in Zambia, as our donation recipient- I have a dear friend who is the Superintendent of all of the schools there, and I knew we would get to experience Zambian life first hand, through her. Zambia is a nation of orphans. The median age is 16, and there are 12 children per each living adult. AIDS, poverty, and violence disallows life to continue into adulthood. Did you catch that part?

10-ish Must-Have Items for Your Makeup Bag

10-ish Must-Have Items for Your Makeup Bag

I am asked regularly, probably daily, which makeup (and) brand I use. So here's a rundown on my makeup cache. And I should start by saying, it's not an actual cache...it's more like a very small bag with 8-10 items that almost never fluctuate. I like to keep things simple. As you can see, I'm a W3LL People girl. I found them on a business trip to Austin last year, and chucked every product in my bag afterward. LOVE them. They are probably (definitely) the cleanest line of cosmetics that I have found. Even their mascara is clean, which is a feat in itself!

So THIS is What a Tipping Point Looks Like?

So THIS is What a Tipping Point Looks Like?

In May, we began a partnership with a national skin care company- we're formulating  and producing deodorants for them with one of their unique ingredients. The great news is that they have sold an entire year's contracted amount in 30 days. The Crazy Great news is that they keep doing that every two weeks, and have congratulated (warned) us that they are about to multiply the orders exponentially. There's also an international distributorship in the works, but we can't say that yet. (Thank you, God, for the increase.)

Everything You Know About Sunscreen Is A Lie {Part 2}

Everything You Know About Sunscreen Is A Lie {Part 2}

Things that seem to have a logical conclusion end up confounding, and the simplest combinations can synergize into life changers! This is what it's like studying nature and the human body, and the combination of the two! Can we say "Controlled Chaos?!?" And I LOVE every second of it! It keeps things spicy, ya know! As promised in the previous article, Today, we're chatting about natural, strategic ways to minimize free radical damage from the sun and environmental factors. We're gonna see a LOT of controlled chaos in this post. Stick with me to the end- it'll all make sense then...sort of...

But before we get to THE FIX, let's sum up the problem.
