5 Benefits of bulk buying 'Organic' beauty products

obp.jpg

Things generally cost more when you have to piece them out into smaller containers. And there's one industry that benefits from repackaging, you've probably guessed it... our very own BEAUTY industry.

I was introduced to bulk buying organic beauty ingredients from a friend. Her shop was a haven for my imagination and after almost 10 years she closed her doors, but she sparked an interest.

I've been playing with mud since I was a child. And who knew that I would be working with it as an adult.

MY GOAL is to inspire you to bulk buy your organic ingredients and make your own. It's fun and sustainable.  

Beauty is what we discover when we turn off the worlds expectations and listen to ourselves.

1. Less trash when you bulk buy.

I buy my clays in 1lb bags and create smaller (reusable) containers. Rhassoul Clay - high in minerals, great for the entire body with a luxe feeling. Bentonite Clay - is known to absorb toxins from the skin. French Green Clay - it purifies the pores and greatly improves the health of the skin, face & more.

2. Better price for a higher quality.

Quality matters in the world of beauty products. Where the product was sourced and how it was created makes a huge difference. Remember that old saying, "You get what you pay for." Buying in bulk allows you to save in the end.

Sweet Almond Oil - rich in Vitamin E and ah-mazing for the skin. Grapeseed Oil - Keeps your skin looking young, and who doesn't what that.

3. You can create many combinations.

Variety is key, it adds a little pizzaz into your beauty rituals. And we could all use some self-care inspiration in our lives.

"I want a boring beauty routine" said NO one.

Both contain epsom, Himalayan and Dead Sea salt. Except one is infused with rose petals.

4. Many uses from one large product.

For example: This large Himalayan salt rock can be ground down to season food. You could also add it to your bath water or foot soak. The larger rock will take time to dissolve so you can enjoy it over time.

5. Makes gift giving so much easier.

I enjoy blessing my Ohana, family, with gifts that promote their self-care routine and enhance their natural beauty. Buying in bulk is the perfect companion for someone who loves giving signature gifts.

Incense will enhance your entire beauty ritual. It gives you a sense of the sacredness regarding your self-care. You can purchase a bunch of incense sticks and wrap a few to give away. I prefer Shoyeido because I'm sensitive to smells. This brand isn't smoky or dusty, it's actually the best.

I'm going to keep it plain and simple. In fact I'll share the entire point of this blogpost in this first paragraph. You feed/nourish your Mind, Body & Soul through habits & rituals.

The end.

Okay, I'm not really through because I have some pictures and a few videos to share, in fact producing these two minute videos took all of two hours each. [WHY] Because I was in the middle of my habit when I realized, "Geez I should take a picture of this!" 

I'm not going to explain why you need healthy habits or the purpose of a ritual, since I've written about it before. You can click on the highlighted words above.

Habits become a part of your subconscious living. Rituals become a part of your soulful living.

FEED YOUR MIND

I know this might sound cheesy but yo have to nourish your mind with positivity, inspiration, daily motivation. The same way our bodies need hydration your mind requires a healthy heaping of good thoughts. No one, not even Oprah, can exist without connecting, hearing or repeating something positive. What feeds your mind? [comment below]

FEED YOUR SOUL

I do this thing called, "mad art" where I shut out the world and create like MADNESS. I don't stop to take pictures of my creation process and rarely share what I make. [WHY] Because I set apart this time to nourish my soul. Art, for me, is a private moment to feed my soul through colors, textures and art supplies. Come to think of it art and nature share the spotlight in this arena. What feeds your soul? [comment below]

FEED YOUR BODY

We misinterpret this so much but never on purpose. There are industries who thrive upon our misinformed ideas concerning food. "Eat salt, don't eat salt" the list is endless and it will always contradicts itself.  I started a FIT-FOODIE Program to help my fitness members reconnect to FOOD and not fads. It is important to create habits around this area of your life because it will sustain the other two areas. Your mind and soul will excel in rituals of self-respect and self-expression but it is your body that requires a dedicated habit of self-care. What feeds your body? [comment below]

  4. Slowly adapt habits that will improve your BODY. Take time to introduce these habits so that your lifestyle will become accustom to it.
