Perfumer's Lab: What is an accord? Fragrance Oils Accords Perhaps thinking about it in terms of music could help. Believe it or not, there are a great many similarities between the creation of fragrances and the composition of music. In fact, many of the same terms are used in both. A fragrance masterpiece is as complex, sensual, harmonizing and alluring as an opus, carefully comprised of notes and tones, as little or as many as it takes to capture its creator's vision. Like a chord in music, a fragrance contains a top note, mid or heart note, and base note. In future articles, we will explore these terms among other fragrance related topics, but these first set of articles will center around the term 'accord' and some common accords used in fragrances today. What is an accord? Common Accords: Amber Ambreine Aquatic Aromatic Balsam Chypre Citrus Cologne Floral Fresh Fougere Fruit Gourmand Green Herbal Mellis Oriental Spice Wood So, you too can make your own fragrance compositions. Next up: THE CHYPRE ACCORD.
Soap Making Instructions | Soap Making Recipes and Tutorials | Teach Soap Non-Comedogenic Oils: Here’s a list! — The Classy Anarchist If you haven’t figured it out yet, I will let you know that I can be an extremely opinionated bitch when it comes to skin care, makeup, and what I think. But it doesn’t hurt to do a little bit of research here and there to back a lot of my nonsense up. I have been researching different oils; their comedogenicity, in particular. Comedogenicity basically refers to a product / ingredient’s ability to produce comedones aka cause you to break out. I have researched a variety of sources online, and some of the results have been rather contradictory. I wanted to organize the different oils and present them in as simple a way possible to show how likely or unlikely it is that they will break you out.

Here, then is the full tutorial: Make Your Own Mineral Makeup I have used mineral makeup for at least a decade now. When Bare Minerals came out, I was amazed at how well it covered and that it was actually good for my skin. Now, a decade later, I realize how simple it is to make! This recipe is just as good as a commercial mineral make up if not better. This ingredient is a white powder that gives an opaque finish. Titanium dioxide provides even more sun protection and helps with coverage. Mica gives your powder a “slip” so it can be applied with ease. Iron Oxides come in yellow, red and brown. This ingredient is optional. Kaolin is another optional ingredient. Essential oils can actually be added to your mineral make up to make your powder more beneficial to your skin. 8 tsp Titanium Dioxide (find it HERE) 3 tsp. 4 tsp. 1/2-1 tsp Yellow Iron Oxide (find it HERE) 1/16 tsp. Pinch Red Iron Oxide (find it HERE) 2 tsp. 5 drops of Essential Oil (optional) (find it HERE) 1 tsp. Add all ingredients to a jar and shake. You May Also Like:

Homemade Body Wash - Keep Scary Out Of Your Shower - To Be A Farmer - Little Seed Farm Our Homemade Lavender-Lemongrass Body WashWhat do you put on your body every day? By the time I’ve finished my morning routine I’ve used shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen for my face, and lotion for my body. Somehow, it took me close to a year before I started wondering what the heck was actually in those bottles in my shower. Isn't it odd that we’ve become so conscious of what we put inside our bodies, and somehow managed not to give any thought about what we were putting on them? All of that changed a few weeks ago when a friend recommended The Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database which rates products according to the chemicals they contain and how harmful they are. I decided to replace some of the items in our routine with safer, natural products - preferably something homemade (well, yeah!). Scrapple and I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and will never go back! Give it a try! 1. 2. 3. 4.

February 25, 2011 Facebook is in the process of rolling out three new features that you should know about. Facebook is where your customers are -- as well as your competitors. Here's what's new: New design for profilesRolling out Facebook MessagesOffering deals Let's take a look at what you need to do right now. 1. All business pages will automatically upgrade to include this new feature on March 11, although Facebook has let businesses manually upgrade ahead of that. This feature gives your page visual interest -- but if you don't take the time to post photos, Facebook will automatically grab elements from your page and leave the rest of the squares blank. Be imaginative and play with this. 2. People can now opt for an e-mail address @Facebook.com. Facebook began offering Messages to all users on February 11.

A Simple Guide for a Mindful Digital Life | zen habits ‘Two thoughts cannot coexist at once: if the clear light of mindfulness is present, there is no room for mental twilight.’ ~ Nyanaponika There Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Tyler Tervooren of Advanced Riskology. Ever feel like you’re two different people? You get up in the morning, eat your breakfast, and go to work. Of course, between all these experiences, you also exist online writing emails, browsing the web, updating your blog, and ordering pizza. Two worlds that once existed exclusively have serendipitously collided. But what about the spaces and gaps? So how do we, as mindful humans, bridge these gaps? Connect the dots between our worlds in a way that propels us forward without overwhelming us with technology? I say the simplest answer is to find the bonds that already exist and focus on them until they define us, ignoring the rest. Step 1: Pick Your Avatar There’s the argument that you simply are who you are, but I reject that idea. Step 2: Construct Your Digital Home
