It’s been a long week so this morning looked like a great start to open up a box of goodies I got the other day in the mail (DIY skincare ingredients). And so I made a soothing spirulina face mask to ease my way into Friday and the upcoming hectic weekend that’s still ahead. Why the green powder? Because spirulina skin benefits are amazing and because I had it lying around. I love an antioxidant kick every now and again.
Wild and purple morning to you all! This weekend calls for some lavender and lavender essential oil benefits, incorporated in a few recipes I gathered: very simple and practically not time-consuming at all. And, they’re also all vegan. In case you also (like me) have a large jar of dried lavender at home but have no idea what to do with it, have a look!
Hey, guys! Do you want to know how to make your own herbal tea blend? Have a look at this guide, because there is nothing better than having a nice fragrant cup of homemade herbal tea blend, right? Yes, I’ve gotten into my autumn mood already, and have just checked all the herbs that I’ve stored and dried during the summer. Even though my favorite is still green tea, I am a sucker for anything tasty and tea-like.
Chia seed popularity took off in Europe only in the late 90s’ but for a lot of us (me included) living without the tiny seeds nowadays seems unimaginable. Even though most of us consider chia as a kitchen staple and a must-have, its’ use has managed to spread well beyond that.

Wild morning, pretties! Autumn is here and what can be better than drinking a relaxing tea in the chilly evening? Chamomile is one of the oldest plants in the world and one of the healthiest there are. Also known as a flower of sun, we’re all familiar with the plant of small white and yellow blossoms, that have a tranquil yet aromatic fragrance.
Wild morning to you! Experimenting is always a fun pastime especially when it’s too hot to go outside. I’ve made my own tanning oil (that could serve as a mild sunscreen) and I prepared a list of natural oils with SPF levels that can serve as ingredients for a homemade sunscreen. Do natural oils contain an SPF level high enough to protect our skin sufficiently? Can natural oils substitute your usual sunscreen?
Wild morning, pretties! Dry brushing is on the rise and I figured it would be a high time to try it. Do you have a brush? Do you have 5 minutes a day for yourself? Yes, it’s just that simple.

Wild morning to you! Luminous lanterns made out of recycled old tin cans? Let’s get to it! I’ve been in a serious DIY mood for the whole week already (if not more), so I’m presenting to you another project: a DIY guide on how to recycle tin cans.
