DIY Natural Beauty Recipes

Attitude organic is the solution for all the trendy and busy women who wish to be healthier and greener. Doesn’t that sounds awesome!? When Marine, the Founder of Attitude Organic, moved to Asia she found it difficult to find her normal natural skin care. Marine realised it was a tough task to find natural, bio, organic and ethical products in some countries – I think we’ve all felt like that, I know I have! So luckily for us she came up with the fabulous website Attitude Organic, which includes tips, tricks and advise on all things green and ethical.

So I’d like to introduce Marine as my first guest blogger and her fantastic DIY Natural Beauty Recipes…

Have you heard of juniper berry? We use this plant to make the gin you might love drinking but also to prepare an amazing Essential Oil! At Attitude Organic, we use it to fight acne problems and skin aging, to heal and soothe the skin and to enhance our overall body wellness!

Not only amazing to use alone, blending juniper berry essential oil with other aromatherapy essential oil can create a completely new personalised skin care product according to your needs and problems! Today, we would like to share with you some of our favourite DIY natural beauty recipes. Check them out!
