Today, Stephanie and Kristin from Minnesota From Scratch are taking over the blog for a guest post. They are two urban mother's that write about organic, made from scratch recipes, canning escapades, diy projects, fun things they do with their kids, gardening and anything else that catches their interest. A couple of my favorite posts they have written about are how to make your own chemical-free lotion and how to make your own organic lip butter. They believe that organic skin care is important for the whole family. Stephanie wrote, "Our skin is our largest organ, and it soaks up a lot of what we put on it. The dangerous ingredients are spread throughout our organs and can eventually cause damaging side effects. It is crucial to consider the poisonous chemicals we are introducing to our bodies and our children’s bodies – we have a choice, they don’t. That is why organic skin care products are so important to me." Take it away Stephanie and Kristin!Hello Walking in Memphis in High Heels readers! We are so thankful to be guest blogging today. As Laura mentioned above, we believe that being proactive about your beauty products is very important for the long term health of your body. Healthy is beautiful! Be aware of the ingredients that are in your lotions, deodorants, shampoos and even mascara. There are a lot of great, natural options out there. Here are just a few of the ingredients that you should be sure to avoid: added fragrance, sulfates, pthalates, parabens and petrolatum.
