DIY Lip Scrub

Hi all! ;)

If you all are like me, you like to prep your lips for your favorite lipsticks by using lip balms, creams, and also lip scrubs. I exfoliate my skin every week and I like to exfoliate my lips also but I don’t like to use the same mixture on my lips as I do on my skin because of the flavor or scent left behind! I make my own lip scrubs and you can too – it is very easy.

I put approx. 2 tablespoons of sugar in a teacup and mix a little honey and coconut oil. I like coconut oil better than olive oil or sunflower oil on my lips because there is no bad taste left on my lips! I also love sugar on my face and lips moreover than salt because it is very gentle.



I also like to mix a little flavor oil – not to be confused with fragrance oil. Flavor oil is used in lip balms and is safe to use on your lips. Fragrance oils are not safe to use on your lips so if you don’t have flavor oil, you can easily skip this step.


I mix all the ingredients together and gently, in circular motions, exfoliate my lips and surrounding lip area. My lips feel super smooth afterwards and prepares them for long lasting beautiful lip color!

By making your own skin treatments, you avoid the chemicals that are often found in over the counter products. It is also simple to make and most of us have the ingredients we need in our kitchen cabinets. Try for yourself and let me know how this method works for you.



Until next time…Be Sweet! xoxo

The Face of Cancer

Good afternoon beauties!

I'd like to ask you all a question: Do you know someone with cancer or has gone through cancer? More likely than not, you have. Cancer doesn't discriminate and when I think of "the face of cancer" or what someone with cancer looks like, I think of all ethnic backgrounds, gender, ages, etc. Cancer is so widespread and affects so many of us, whether we are going through it, caring for someone, or praying for someone's healing.

Today, I am thinking of everyone I know who is now going through or has gone through and sending special prayers to them! It is difficult going to appointments, taking tests, being stuck by needles, etc. - I know, I have been there. So to those who have experienced or are now experiencing what I described, I pray you will have comfort today. I pray you will stay encouraged and stay positive in the midst of it all. I pray you will lean on a source much bigger than us all and know that same source has a plan for us.

Until next time beauties... Be Strong... and Be Sweet! xoxo

Out on the Town - Ladies Night Out

Long time no "see" friends! 

I don't know about about you but this weather has had me in hibernation mode. You would think that when hibernating, I would write and post more but just the opposite seemed to have happened! ;( The cold weather of February that carried over to this first week of March made me want to curl up on the coach with my blankets and sit still! I didn't want to sit at my desk to type and even the thought of typing on my laptop was too much!

Thankfully, however, warmer weather is on the horizon and we are "springing forward" this weekend. The temps are going up and just thinking about it is making my mood better and I am excited to get back in the groove. 

Warmer weather also means that I will be able to get out to events and summer festivals will be on the calendar as well. Speaking of which, I will be a vendor at the Ladies Night Out event at the Cute Boutique in Richmond, VA on March 14th. Please visit my FB page for the details (http://www.facebook.com/SweetTrinityAromatherapy
I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it and I'll be posting future events here as well. Also, I'll post pics of the event on my IG so be sure to follow me there as well (http://www.instagram.com/SweetTrinityAromatherapy)

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Information About Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Bath Salts

Information about Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Bath Salts
The first product I ever created was the Dead Sea Salt Bath Salts. I created the salt soak at a time when I was in a period of healing my body from the inside out. I researched the benefits of Dead Sea Salts and started soaking many times a week.

There are many benefits to soaking in Dead Sea Salts and I am always happy to hear the reports of how Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Salts have helped people.
For soaking: I recommend bathing three times weekly, soaking for at least 12 minutes.

As a Foot bath: I recommend adding a cup of Salt to a tub of warm water as a balm for aching feet.
The main ingredients of Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Dead Sea Salt Soaks include Dead Sea Salt and Epsom Salt. The benefits of each are described below.
Dead Sea Salt: Salts mined from the Dead Sea in the Middle East, are rich in minerals and help draw impurities out of the skinThe Dead Sea is a popular center for wellness and health today, due to the fact that Dead Sea salts have been reported to have the following benefits:
Rheumatologic Conditions – Dead Sea salts can be effective in therapy of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis. The minerals are absorbed while soaking, stimulating blood circulation.

Common Skin Ailments – Research has demonstrated that skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis are relieved by regular soaking in water with added Dead Sea salt. The National Psoriasis Foundation recommends Dead Sea and Dead Sea salts as effective treatments for psoriasis. One study concluded that the high concentration of magnesium in Dead Sea salt was instrumental in improving skin hydration and reducing inflammation.

Allergies - The high concentration of bromide and magnesium in the Dead Sea salt can relieve allergic reactions by cleansing and detoxifying.

Epsom Salt: Researchers and physicians report that raising your magnesium levels may improve heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.

Epsom Salts flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Epsom Salts also improve nerve function by regulating electrolytes. In addition, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.

Epsom Salts relieve stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
While increasing your magnesium levels, our Soaks also deliver sulfates, which are extremely difficult to get through food but which readily absorb through the skin. Medical research indicates sulfates are needed for the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. Sulfates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and help to detoxify the body's residue of medicines and environmental contaminants.
I encourage you soak your body and/or your feet on a regular basis to experience wonderful benefits inside and out. For a full description of Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy Dead Sea Salts, please visit: www.etsy.com/shop/SweetTrinity.
Until next time…be sweet! ;)

The Benefits of Aloe Vera Oil

Good morning beauties!

I love using Aloe Vera oil because it feels so good on the skin and the substance from the leaf is so good for us. I have done a lot of research about the effectiveness of Aloe Vera and the healing benefits of using it thus the reason it is a primary ingredient in most of my products.


The top 5 reasons you should fall in love with Aloe Vera are:

1. useful in the treatment of wound and burn healing

2. used to treat minor skin infections, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids in humans

3. can be consumed to ease digestive issues such as heartburn and irritable bowel syndrome (pure Aloe Vera and not the oil)

4. is non-toxic with no known side effects

5. studies show that Aloe Vera promotes the rates of healing


This information should not be construed as medical advice and you should always seek the advice of a doctor for serious ailments. However, the use of all natural products can aid in your healing and we have witnessed the wonderful effect of using products made with Aloe Vera.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo
