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

News About Our Etsy Store

Hello all! ;)

If you follow me on my Social Network sites (I hope you do!), you may have seen that I had a sale on the 12oz Aloe Vera Body Oils. I removed that size from the inventory and I am currently working on new sizes and design. While this process is underway, the Etsy store will be closed.

But no worries - I will be posting DIY ideas and recipes for you all to create all natural and healing body products at home. However, in the meantime, if you desire a custom made product, do not hesitate to contact me via the 'Contact Christa' tab.

Thank you all for your continued support of Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy. As always, until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Remembering Why I Started!

Have you ever had one of those deja vu moments where you sit and remember why you started on the path you are on? That happened to me the other morning sitting in the bath!

Many years ago I started making bath salts with Dead Sea Salts to heal my body. I was ill and I started to do research on natural ways to heal my body in addition to following the doctors orders. I truly believe soaking in Dead Sea Salts and using essential oils helped heal my mind, body, and spirit thus the reason I started making them for others and sharing my story.

Well this week I was feeling sore and tired and instinctly I made a large batch of my Dead Sea Salt Soak with Dead Sea Salts, Tea Tree Oil, and Lavender Oil. Aftering soaking in the tub for about 10 minutes, I immediately felt better and it made me remember why I started making them in the first place.

Natural products, just like natural foods, have an incredible way of healing the body! I love my Salts and I hope, if you haven't already, you have the opportunity to use them and experience what I have experienced.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday beauties!

I hope you all have had a great weekend. As for me, I organized my Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy "lab", had dinner and brunch with friends, and contacted potential hostesses for holiday Stella & Dot Trunk Shows. I accomplished quite a bit so now it's time to relax and prepare for the week. 

Now that my lab is open for business and organized, I will be adding more inventory to my Etsy store. I'll be posting here on the blog and also on Instagram about seasonal scents! I can't wait for you to try what I am making. 

Do you plan your week on Sundays? How do you prep for the week?

Until next time beauties...Be Sweet! xoxo

How To DIY Facial Scrub - Revisited

Good evening beauties!
Wednesday and Sundays are usually my facial days. I try to stay consistent and when I get off schedule, the texture of my skin tells on me! Do you give yourself facials on a schedule?

My facial routine is pretty simple and there are two parts. As a matter of fact, I make my DIY facial scrub myself for the first part of my routine! To create a DIY facial scrub at home, you need:

-        ½ c. Sugar
-        1 tbsp. Olive oil
-        ½ tsp. of Fresh Lemon Juice
-        ¼ c. Skin cleanser (any brand and also optional)
Before using the scrub, I steam my face. The quick method is to place a hot towel on my face for about a minute. The longer version is to actually use my steamer. Most of the time, I use the quick method! ;) Do you all use a steamer when you give yourself a facial? (Please share in the Comment section below).
After steaming (which opens the pores and dampens the skin), I gently rub the scrub on my face in gentle circular motions. I spend a few minutes exfoliating paying a little extra attention to my nose and hairline.
After I rinse the scrub, the second part of my routine is to apply a mask which helps to further pull impurities out of the skin. You can make your own mask using various types of clays. I will review the DIY mask process in a separate blog post. You can also purchase a mask made by your favorite beauty brand.
I let the mask sit until it dries and then I wipe off with a warm towel. I complete my facial by splashing cool water on my face which tightens the pores.
And that’s it! All done! By following this routine mid-week and the end of the week, I keep my skin as clear as possible. I wear makeup every day and put oils in my hair so I find that if I don’t treat my face to TLC, breakouts will appear. 
Do you all use scrubs or masks? Have you ever created one yourself? Leave your Comments in the section below.
Until next time…Be Sweet! xoxo

My Name Change on IG and Twitter and a New Blog!

Good morning beauties!

Did you by chance notice that my name changed on Instagram and Twitter? The name for my personal IG and Twritter pages was @sweet_trinity but now it is @styledbychrista. Let me explain:

I have (2) very strong passions, and for quite some time, I have been contemplating how to separate them or keep them together. One passion is for aromatherapy and natural skincare products. The other is for makeup, hair, accessories, and as I always say, "sparkly pretty things." These passions compliment each other and although I have an audience who is interested in both, I also recognize that I have a distinct and separate audience for aromatherapy/natural skincare, and another audience for hair and makeup. Sooooo....I decided to split the subjects.

This blog will continue to provide information about aromatherapy, natural skincare and ingredients, and inspiration to live a happy and healthy life. And in addition to this blog, I have created a new blog: (currently under construction). The new blog will be the place where I can express all my makeup, hair, and beauty news for those who are interested in those topics. I am also now a Stella & Dot Stylist..yipee ;) the Styled by Christa site will have links to purchase all the sparkly pretty things I am in love with!

So the breakdown is as follows:

I hope this provides some clarity and I hope you find both blogs interesting and informative. I look forward to our ongoing interaction and thank you for being part of my journey.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo
