Soap Free Face Routine

Here’s a million dollar question : How do your wash your face… with NO soap?

Faced with skin stripping soaps and a pressing question, Triiinity was determined to solve the riddle. We already opted for mild soaps and natural/well sourced soaps but even those can be a overly stripping of the natural oils in delicate face skin. They were even beginning to cause Triiini small dry patches and we couldn’t have that. So thus began the journey to find a gentler, more natural face washing method. After lengthy research and experimentation, we came to a combination and established a face routine that I plan to keep for a while to come.

Tools Needed:

Bentonite Clay

Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar

Face Pads/ Cotton pads

Natural oil

 

What to do?

Step 1: Bring bentonite clay and honey into a viscous paste like mixture {you may use a bowl or just mix it in your hand. For this I like to use Garner’s Garden Bentonite Clay. More honey than bentonite clay will give you the best ratio of ingredients to allow for proper spreading}

Step 2: Open your facial pores using a hot towel

Step 3: Spread mixture all over your face, massaging as you spread & allow it to sit {2 to 5 minutes is more than sufficient, though if you decide to let it sit longer it won’t hurt}

Step 4: Rinse with warm water until face is fully free of substance.

Step 5: Use cotton face pad to apply apple cider vinegar to your face {this step closes your pores while adding the skin benefits of acv}

Step 6: Finish by applying a dime sized amount of natural oil to your face. {I use a homemade mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, & rosemary} . Let the oil soak in before applying any makeup.

Honey, Bentonite Clay, & ACV are 100% natural ingredients with natural detoxifying effects and amazing skin benefits! Together they make the perfect facial cleanser. Keeping the skin at the proper oil balance {especially using oils that boasts their own skin benefits} aids in anti aging effects, so once youve applied your natural oil…you’re unstoppable!

In the past few months of doing this routine, I have seen such an increase in the quality & lusterous smoothness of my skin. It’s always glowing & it feels like I’ve snapped every pore into prime position! Now I might look like a monster every morning when I was my face, but the end result is well worth it.

Liquid Gold & Yoni Power : Goddess Body Yoni Oil Review

{Yoni: Sanskrit for vagina or womb. It is a sacred space & the source of all life }

Power to the Pussy! All Hail to the V!

The Yoni is both sacred & divine and should be treated as such for maximum health & joy. This power-packed organ is highly resilient, but also sensitive, and must be properly cared for to flourish at its full capacity.

I am very careful what I allow on or in my Yoni. I eat healthily, I do not wear tampons, I wear yoni eggs for spiritual & physical yoni maintenance, and I’m sure to do my kegals to keep my yoni operating in its proper perfection.

As stringent as I am a about what goes near my sacred space, you know that any product I use down there must be to a high standard. And Goddess Body Yoni Oil is so quality it not only meets but, dare I say, exceeds this standard.

{Yoni Oil: A combination of 100% natural herbs & oils that provide preventative maintenance & ultimate feminine healing}

Benefits:

Anti microbial
Restores balance to feminine pH
Strengthens vaginal muscles
Regulates feminine cycles
Increases natural lubrication
Prevents excess of bacteria & rids infection

Usage: This oil can be used externally or internally for daily maintenance & minor infections.

-daily maintenance- using your fingers, apply 1/2 – 1 teaspoon internally via the vaginal opening as well as on the vulva. Apply right after your bath or shower, or as needed.
-minor infections- apply internally to the vaginal opening as well as externally on the vulva 2-3 times a day until the infection no longer persists. A sterile syringe or dropped may be used.

It also makes a great lubricant & massage oil.

I have been using this product for the past year now and I swear by it. Not only does it smell beyond delicious, but it does all it boasts! I have a very regulated menstrual cycle that operates like clockwork. I also used to have much more painful periods. Thanks to this liquid gold, now my menstrual cycle is practically painless. My vaginal walls are strong & tight. Natural lubrication is no problem, as she is the juiciest of fruit. Goddess Body’s Yoni Oil definitely amplifies my divine feminine essence by keeping my yoni running in exquisite perfection.

P.S. With its perfect consistency and anti microbial properties, I also find use for yoni oil as a sealant on my facial skin and in small quantities mixed into a homemade spray for my scalp. This stuff is amazing!

Visit GoddessBody to get your yoni popping on some of this liquid gold!

Goddess Rising Facial Appreciation

Hello My Lovelies!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know Triiinity & I are in the midst of our Goddess Rising Yoga Challenge! It’s been a blast growing in love & light with my fellow Goddesses and I know we shall continue to grow and ascend in positivity and self-love together. For Day 10 of the challenge, our self-loving task was to give yourself a facial. So I wanted to share my facial process with you all.

Ingredients :
Urban Oreganics Facial Mask (100% vegan)
Honey
Instant Coffee
Water

image image

SN: Did you know honey & coffee are both naturally occurring substances that are good for your skin? Coffee has anti-aging properties as it tightens and tones the skin while mutually stimulating the skin, bringing increased circulation. Honey is humectant, so it is perfect for bringing natural moisturization. It also has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties that are perfect for fighting acne. You can mix these ingredients without the use of a store bought facial mask or in addition to one and follow the steps below for amazing skin benefits!

Step 1: Mix Ingredients
{stir until mixture becomes a fine paste}

Step 2: Apply Mixture
{It is best to do this while laying down, over a towel to avoid any drippy carnage. Feel free to use your hands for application but I found this application best done with a utensil liken to a Popsicle stick shape. So a mixing stick or even the flat side of a butter knife would work fine to apply the proper spreading. I like it best when I apply a coating, let it dry for a minute or two, and then go back and apply another for a nice thick facial layer.}

Step 3: Wear Facial
{Relax and let the properties take hold. I recommend you let the mixture sit on your face for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing, for maximum benefits.}

Step 4: Rinse

{Rinse mixture away with warm water. Then rinse with cool to lock the amazing effects into your pores}

Step 5: Moisturize & Enjoy Your Glow!
{Seal your skin with a light moisturizer. Enjoy the glowing effects of your after-facial radiance!}

Goddess BodTEA: Goddess Body Herbal Blends

 Hello Spiiirits!

Time for a quick review of amazing holistic products!

(Don’t those always make you happy? They sure put a smile on my face 🙂 )

Specifically we’ll be talking about the Herbal Blends that Goddess Body sent to our home. Anybody who knows me, KNOWS how much I LOVE tea!! So tasty, medicinal, & relaxing! The lovely Angela Elizabeth sent two kinds: The Mind & Spirit Herbal Blend and the Hair, Skin, & Nails Herbal Blend.

TEAms

Mind & Spirit: This blend contains natural  ingredients that are great for the nervous system like Gotu Kola & Yerba Mate. The intention of this blend is to enhance energy, focus, & concentration/attention, while also stimulating and strengthening ones third eye (consequently enhancing ones level of enlightenment). This tea definitely does what it boasts. After drinking it, I find my mind filled with clarity & deepened perspective. Triiin has even said she feels increased energy radiating from my crown, after ingesting this blend (sort of like a giant, well charged crystal). This blend is delicious hot or cold. I think this is a great blend to drink before you have to do anything that requires mental attention or stimulation. I think this blend is also perfect for those days when you are feeling so well.

TEAhsn

Hair Skin & Nails: This fragrant  blend contains one of my favorite flowers! Hibiscus! Hibiscus is great for the cardiovascular system & has blood cleansing properties. Featuring Rosemary, Mullen & plenty other health & beauty enhancing ingredients, I love the texture the blend has to it. And the benefits are AH-mazing, blessing its user with a nourished scalp, stronger roots, sustained growth, stronger nails, reduced blemishes, detoxified skin, for all around healthy hair, skin, and nails from inside out. This blend is delicious hot or cold as well, and (in my opinion) has a good flavor to be blended into fruity smoothies.

(Tea comes in 4oz packs with a tea ball infuser, Both blends are 100% natural & 100% vegan)

I truly can’t choose my favorite out of the two! That tea ball infuser that comes with each blend is a Godsend as well! I love it so much. It makes making using blends or fresh herbs/roots, etc. for teas a WORLD easier.

Angela Elizabeth of Goddess Body has a MS in Biology and her holistic blends are the TRUTH. Not only Mind & Spirit and Hair, Skin & Nails herbal blends are available, but Yoni Goddess blend, Fibroid & Cyst blend, and many more delicious, holistic, healing blends!

Check out GoddessBody.org to try these, or any of the amazing blends available for purchase!

B.A.R.S : A Kwithy Kat x Free Spiiirit Production

{Excerpt from FreeSpiiiritLife}
***Apologies for the lack of posts, but I got something from the past couple weeks that will hopefully insight & excite ya! ENJOY!***

 

Greetings Spiiirits!
So much love & light to you all!

 

About 2 weeks ago, Kwithy Kat & Free Spiiirit conjoined to create a piece of art that would speak to the people in a way words alone, could not. Something that would activate thought, inspire, and empower.

 

We thought a short film would be the perfect thing and for it, we had the perfect concept. When particles collide…sometimes they create something that is truly magic. And that’s what we feel we have manifested here.

 

Here are a couple of Behind the Scenes Sneak-Peeks into the process

Here a couple shots from the impromptu Photoshoot that took place

And HERE…is the short film that came of it…

OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!

THE DAY

Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂
