All Natural, Easy-To-Make Luxury Hand Creams Once Used By Marie Antoinette

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, perfume became a means of seduction and a symbol of wealth and nobility.  Marie Antoinette was the beautifully charming queen of France who applied it to her clothes, body, hair and accessories, as well as bathing in perfumed waters. She inspired many fragrances and floral concoctions from her very own fragrant gardens when they were in bloom.

Along with the discovery of germs in the 1800s, the importance of bathing held much significance. In fact, she carried a elaborate travelling cases called nécessaires de voyage in which the numerous bottles and blends were kept and it is said that Marie-Antoinette carried three vials of her beloved Houbigant fragrance to her execution .

Marie Antoinette wore  customized gloves scented with a very personal fragrance; it was the fashion at this time for ladies to wear perfumed gloves. The scents were of blood-red carnations, hyacinths, violets and musk jonquils to create a natural fragrance for Marie Antoinette’s gloves; the gloves were made from kidskin and were treated with a mix of sweet almond oil, white wax and eau de rose. The gloves were laid on fresh roses and accented with nutmeg, to ensure the gloves would protect Marie Antoinette’s hands from her riding reins, in effect, a “natural restorative beauty treatment”. She had her own perfumer, an innovative expert named Jean-Louis Fargeon.  To keep her hands soft, the Queen slept wearing gloves infused with sweet almond oil, rose water, and wax.

Upon Marie Antoinette’s request, Jean-Louis Fargeon created a signature scent for her called Parfum du Trianon, meant to capture the fresh scent of favorite retreat, Petit Trianon, so that she could carry its essence with her wherever she went.

Body butters are simply pure joy and nourishment for your skin!
The true art of creating body butters has to do with the ratio of butter to oil to wax. To create a chapped skin body butter that’s soft and easy to apply, a 6:1 ratio is ideal. Six parts of butters and oils, to one part beeswax.

It’s very gentle for even the most sensitive skins, and most nurturing for the skin that needs A LITTLE BIT OF  extra care.
I want to share a few hand cream recipes along with a few perfects of scents that will not only offer nourishment to hands and feet and has a history from royalty!
Hand Cream
1 oz (28 g) unscented natural skin cream
4 drops Neroli/Petitgrain co-distill
5 drops Frankincense
1 drop Patchouli
1 drop Ylang Ylang
Make this blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) jar. Put the natural skin cream into the jar, drop the essential oils in, and stir gently with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon. Use your hand cream as often as you like throughout the day.
You can use any natural, unscented cream that you like for this blend. I do suggest making a fresh jar every few weeks, because most natural skin cream is water-based, and is not made with a preservative.

When you have dry, cracked knuckles, it can feel like you’re constantly applying moisturizer but not experiencing much benefit from it.
Here is a recipe for a hand salve that can really help!
You can apply this hand salve as often as you need throughout the day. Some people even apply a thick layer on their hands and feet while they wear hand gloves along with footies while they sleep, so their dry, cracked skin can absorb as much of the healing components as possible.
This recipe makes 7 oz (196 gm) of hand salve. You can make it in an 8 oz (240 ml) glass jar or in two 4 oz (120 ml) jars.

Dry, Cracked Hands and Feet Butter
1 oz (28 gm) Beeswax
1 oz (28 gm) Shea butter
1.5 oz (42 gm) Kpangnan butter
1.5 oz (45 ml) Neroli-infused jojoba
2 oz (60 ml) Argan oil
Directions
Melt your beeswax in a Pyrex measuring cup over the stove. Put the Pyrex in a soup pot that’s a quarter full of water, so the boiling water will warm the Pyrex and melt the butters and oils gently. I like to let the handle of the Pyrex hang over the side of the pot. That way it doesn’t get too hot.
Add the jojoba wax. You can add this before the beeswax is entirely melted.
When the beeswax is melted, add your kpangnan butter. Remelt, stirring gently.
Add the argan oil.
Remove the blend from heat, then add the shea butter, stirring gently.
Once the shea butter is all melted, you can add your essential oils (if you’re going to add them). This blend is very healing even without essential oils, though.
Pour your melted blend carefully into your jar. Let it cool for a few hours (two or three hours should be long enough).
If you’d like to add essential oils, add them just before pouring your salve into the jar.

Here’s a blend that can add so much healing power to your hand and feet butter
30 drops Frankincense
17 drops Lavender
14 drops Helichrysum
7 drops Patchouli
2 drops Ylang Ylang
Give this hand salve a try for a few days and see how your knuckles feel. Cracked feet and nails can take a little longer to heal.
If you would like an all-over body butter that can help dry, chapped skin.

Chapped Skin Butter Blend

A perfect blend that will combine perfectly with any skin butter blend:
-35 drops Ylang Ylang
-60 drops Orange
-45 drops Patchouli
If you want to use Frankincense only, you would need about 140 drops of it – because the butter recipe is for 14 oz of butter. This would be 2% dilution.

This aromatic butter recipe makes a silky, easily-applied chapped skin body butter that moisturizes, soothes, and protects.

Ingredients
2 oz (60 ml) Calendula oil
1 oz (30 ml) Neroli infused jojoba
2 oz (56 gm) Palm Kernel oil
4 oz (112 gm) Coconut oil
2 oz (56 gm) Shea butter
1 oz (28 gm) Cocoa butter
2 oz (56 gm) Beeswax
Directions
Melt the beeswax and Neroli infused jojoba together in a glass Pyrex measuring cup. (Use the double boiler approach in picture above.)
Add the cocoa butter and gently stir until melted. (I use a glass stir rod.)
Add the coconut oil and palm kernel and gently stir until melted.
Add the shea butter, remove from the heat and stir until melted.
Add the calendula oil and stir until combined.
Pour into seven wide-mouth 2 oz (60 ml) glass jars, cover and allow to cool (makes about 14 oz, or almost .5 litres). I keep the ones I’m not using in the refrigerator for longer shelf life. The ones I’m using I leave at room temperature. The shelf life of this butter could be one year if all your ingredients are fresh.

Note: Always Ask your supplier when each butter/oil was produced.

Did you know that it takes 26 seconds for the chemicals to enter into your bloodstream?
The real reality is we are damaging our DNA and we are changing our genetic makeup for future generations. There was a study a few years back that said the umbilical cord of an average American baby has over 200 known chemicals in it. Eighty percent of the common chemicals that are used daily in this country, we know almost nothing about. Our children are being born toxic and we have no idea if these toxins are already doing some sort of damage their brains, their immune system, their reproductive system, and any other developing organs. Are we unknowingly setting ourselves up for failure in the womb, even before birth?
Scientists and researchers are concerned that many of these chemicals may be carcinogenic or wreak havoc with our hormones, our body’s regulating system.
Most products have a warning label that is typed in bold “Keep Out of Reach of Children”. As consumers, we believe that if our children don’t ingest these products they will not be harmed by them. This can be far from the truth. Think about other common methods of exposure are through the skin and our respiratory tract. WE are along with our children are often in contact with the chemical residues housecleaning products do leave behind, by crawling, lying and sitting on the freshly cleaned floor.

Scientists at Norway’s University of Bergen tracked 6,000 people, with an average age of 34 at the time of enrollment in the study, who used the cleaning products over a period of two decades, according to the research published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

It’s not enough to be aware of all the outdoor chemicals that we are exposed to everyday but inside our homes we can have more power and control. We have to be more aware about using chemical cleaners, paints, glues, body lotions, toothpastes, underarm deodorants, hair products and pesticides. Instead start to begin to use products that don’t pollute our very own bodies. We must read labels, make our own products and do our own research. I can’t stress this enough. We must take a stand for our health. Stop using commercial products that are laced with unknown and harmful body damaging products.
you can reduce your exposure to them by eating organic foods, making your own cleaning chemicals and using alternative pest control methods.
You can also find many great recipes for alternative cleaning solutions in my book AWARENESS HAS MAGIC.

Here are a few more recipes that you will find in my book AWARENESS HAS MAGIC.

In most of my shampoo and soap recipes you will find that I like to use Castile Soap.
Castile soap is different than most soaps available today in that it’s made with vegetable oils and lye. Named after the medieval Spanish city of Castile, this kind of soap was  originally made with olive oil. Today, solid and liquid forms are made with vegetable oils like palm, coconut, hemp, jojoba, and olive.
Unlike commercial soaps that rely on SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) to create a soapy lather, castile soap’s bubbles come from saponins in the oils that are released from the reaction of lye and oil.
Castile Soap doesn’t Cause Irritation, its Anti-Bacterial , Promotes Healing, Great for Skin Sensitivities and its Non Toxic.

Homemade Natural Shampoo
Ingredients:
2/3 cup of Castile soap
Two teaspoons of almond or olive oil
10- 15 drops of ( lavender, lemon or grapefruit ) essential oil ( optional)
1/2 cup of full fat canned coconut milk
Method of preparation:
Its preparation is extremely easy. All you need to do is to mix all the ingredients in a bottle, and your natural, toxin- free shampoo is ready!
Use:
Remember to shake the bottle before you use the shampoo. Use it regularly and your hair will be incredibly healthy, shiny and gorgeous!

Homemade Natural Shampoo

Vanilla grapefruit linen spray
2-1/2 cups filtered water
3 drops pink grapefruit essential oil
2 drops vanilla essential oil
1/4 cup vodka
The vodka helps the water dry quickly after you spray it on your linens. Theses essential oils that are used create a beautifully fresh vanilla grapefruit scent that is perfect for a summer pick me up. This spray is very versatile. It can be used on clothing, fabric furniture, or even as a quick air freshener.
If the vodka smell is slightly strong just add another drop or two of essential oil.
Always shake the bottle be before spraying on your linen.

Tub & Tile Cleaner
1 /4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup lemon juice
Or 10 drops of lemon essential oil
3 Tablespoons Epsom salt
3 Tablespoons Sal Suds or Castile liquid soap
1/2 cup white vinegar
Pour the vinegar into the bottle, followed by the baking soda and Epsom salt. Shake the bottle to combine the ingredients. Add the Sal suds gently shaking the bottle to combine. Mix all ingredients in a bottle with a sealable lid.
Scrub and then rinse with water and wet clean rag.

12 Common Food Allergy Triggers

Many people are unaware that certain foods are actually working against their bodies.  If you are allergic to certain foods it will involve your immune system. The immune system controls how your body defends itself.  Your body see’s inflammatory foods as invaders and will kick in autoimmunity responses. For example: If you have a food allergy to cow’s milk, your immune system will see cow’s milk as an invader.   In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system will create antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies then cause certain cells to release chemicals (including histamine) into the bloodstream to defend against the allergen “invader.”

Food isn’t just fuel it also has a major impact on your life. The foods you consume is  information that is being sent  throughout your body and it will adjust accordingly to what is its being fed.  Your GI tract doesn’t just digest and absorb food.  You see the  GI tract has it’s own little powerful city amongst itself. This independently working nervous system (aka the enteric nervous system) has  neurotransmitters, hormones, chemical messengers, enzymes, and bacteria along with being the home to to 70 percent of your body’s entire immune system! The quality of food does matter. Your GI tract also is the boss of your metabolism which it tells your metabolism to burn or store body fat based on the quality of calories. When a person is constantly feeding their body a food that they have an  allergy or sensitivity to this creates a constant inflammatory response that will disrupt your life in many ways. Listening to your body is a great way to see if  your body is having reactions to food sensitivities or a allergy. This is a list of things that can be associated with having a food allergy.

  • chronic pain
  • arthritis
  • asthma
  • nutrient deficiencies
  • mood disorders
  • skin conditions
  • autoimmune disorders
  • cognitive disorders
  • learning disabilities
  • insomnia
  • weight gain
  • migraines
  • kidney and gallbladder problems
  • ADD/ADHD
  • narcolepsy
  • addiction
  • kidney problems

One thing we have learned is each of us are unique and have our very own biochemistry that sets us apart from everyone else. Although we might share the same common traits and perhaps the same overlapping metabolic tendencies. We can’t continue to say that one-size-fits-all when it comes to our very own unique body chemistry. There are over 7 billion people on this planet and we come in all different shapes, colors and sizes. With this being said wouldn’t you think the one-size-fits-all- approach to losing weight wouldn’t work since we are we are all unique.

Your  body adapts to what your feeding it,  the nutrients that are being supplied are being  processed differently and are being sent to where its need. Just like a car, each item has its own function and you can’t run a car efficiently without every part working as it should.  The proteins, fats, and carbs are all converted into fuel using many different metabolic processes.

This list of foods below can be disrupting your life and you are just unaware. Keeping a food journal will allow you to be able to keep track of how these foods affect your body once you start to reintroduce them after a 3 week  grace period from them.

Here is the list of 12 Common Food Allergies soy,  gluten/grains, Legumes, lectins, peanuts, nightshades, dairy, caffeine, corn, eggs, sugar + artificial sweeteners.

SOY

Soy not only disrupts hormones by mimicking estrogen in your body but it also causes  inflammation,  contributes to leaky gut syndrome and most likely has been genetically modified (GMO). Start reading your labels. You will be surprised how companies will sneak in soy.

Brilliant marketing campaigns have lead you to believe that soy products are healthy but in fact it’s completely the opposite. Soy products are not healthy foods. Eating soy frequently can potentially lead to numerous other health issues.

For centuries, Asian people have been consuming fermented soy products such as natto, tempeh, and soy sauce, and enjoying the health benefits. Fermented soy does not wreak havoc on your body like unfermented soy products do.

The issue with soy is most soy today contains something called phytoestrogens, and these phytoestrogens are estrogen mimickers in the body. And so, if you’re a male consuming extra estrogen, it’s going to give you more feminine characteristics.

If you’re a woman consuming foods that increase estrogen levels, it’s going to increase your risk of breast cancer, cervical cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and other hormone imbalance-related disorders.

Many have felt as if they needed a diary substitute since they couldn’t tolerate dairy. Actually your body was doing you an even bigger favor.

For starters, some chemicals such as isoflavones, found in soy products like soy milk or edamame, can intercept your thyroid’s ability to make hormones if you’re not getting enough iodine.

Soybeans are one of the crops that are being genetically modified. Since 1997 GMO soybeans are being used in an increasing number of products.

Dr. Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story, points out thousands of studies linking soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility—even cancer and heart disease. Here is just a sampling of the health effects that have been linked to soy consumption:

Breast cancer

Brain damage

Infant abnormalities

Thyroid disorders

Kidney stones

Immune system impairment

Severe, potentially fatal food allergies

Impaired fertility

Danger during pregnancy and nursing

Final thoughts on Soy: Soy is terrible – contains trypsin inhibitors, is a source of xenoestrogens, even if it’s organic, and if it’s GMO, it also comes with a lot of glyphosate and other pesticide residues. Avoid it like the black plague….

Caffeine

Caffeine adds stress to your adrenal glands and the endocrine system. Caffeine will stimulate you adrenals causing them to adrenaline and cortisol in the exact same way as they do during a ‘fight or flight’ reaction. Caffeine gives you a false boost in energy before the fall to fatigue.

Your thyroid is very sensitive to stimulants. It only confuses your already overworked system.

If you must have coffee, try to limit it to one cup of coffee a day.

As for caffeinated soda, this beverage is a loaded with empty calories, a crazy amount of sugar and then top if off with the caffeine. You can purchase soda water without sodium and squeeze a lemon or lime into it.

Dairy and Gluten

Most people don’t realize that they have a very common food allergies to gluten and dairy. A1 casein is a protein found in cow’s milk. The A1 casein and gluten both can cause Leaky Gut Syndrome. This will increase inflammation and tax your already low hormone producing thyroid gland.  When you have a “Leaky gut” it allows particles to leak from your digestive tract and travel freely through your bloodstream. This puts your immune system on high alert to neutralize all of these threats. After a while of the constant abuse from your leaky gut and eventually puts your body in a state of chronic inflammation and next setting you on the path to develop an autoimmune disease where your immune system becomes so stressed and confused that it begins attacking your own tissue by mistake. So the next time you go to eat that cheeseburger keep in mind that since you have a leaky gut that was originally caused by gluten and dairy consumption, your willingly allowing their proteins to  travel freely into your bloodstream, where they trigger an attack from your immune system.  I use ghee for cooking very frequently. The clarifying process also removes casein.  I also use coconut milk.  In my research, these are a safer way to eat dairy if you must any type of raw dairy – milk, butter, cheese, cream, sour cream, cream cheese, ice cream, heavy cream, yogurt and any type of pasteurized grass-fed dairy of cream, butter, and ghee.

Gluten intolerance is pretty common than previously recognized.  It’s a major trigger for autoimmune conditions. By removing wheat, barley, and rye products, as well as corn, oats, millet, and coffee you are allowing yourself to heal.

Nightshades

If  you have an autoimmune disease, arthritis, gout, osteoporosis and ongoing inflammation eliminating nightshades can help you heal. Nightshades has  Alkaloids, Calcitrol and high in lectins.  Lectins are plants as a natural pesticide.  It is a“sticky” molecules that tend to attach to the walls of the intestine and can exacerbate a leaky gut.  Calcitriol is a  hormone that signals your body that you need more calcium in your blood.  Therefore your body starts to store calcium deposits in soft tissues, such as tendons and ligaments. Last but not least Alkaloids which cause stress and inflammation in  your body.

Nightshades include:

  • Potatoes (not sweet potatoes or yams)
  • Tomatoes
  • Eggplant
  • All peppers (not peppercorn), including hot peppers, chili peppers, sweet peppers and paprika
  • Ashwaganda
  • Gogi berries
  • Cape gooseberries (not normal gooseberries)
  • Ground cherries

 

Sugar and Artificial sweeteners

Refined sugar doesn’t contain any nutritional value . You wont find any fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants , water, fats or proteins but what you will find is inflammation, malnutrition, bad carbohydrates, metabolic syndrome, blood sugar spikes, leptin resistance AND obesity.
Did you know? According to the American Heart Association ( AHA), the maximum amount of sugar you should eat in a day is as follows:
Men: 150 calories per day ( 37.9 grams or 9 teaspoons)
Women: 100 calories per day ( 25 grams or 6 teaspoons)
Children 2-18 years old: 100 calories ( 25 grams or 6 teaspoons)
According to the National Cancer Institute and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, children as young as 1 to 3 years already exceed the daily recommendations and typically consume around 12 teaspoons of added sugar a day. By the time a child is 4 to 8 years old, his sugar intake soars to an average of 21 teaspoons a day.
The National Cancer Institute also found that 14- to 18-year-old children consume the most added sugar on a daily basis, averaging about 34.3 teaspoons. In general, the average American consumes about 355 calories of added sugar a day, or the equivalent of 22.2 teaspoons. That is about triple the recommended amount! A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation states that an excess of sugar on our liver is making our bodies insulin resistance. and is the beginning stages of non alcoholic fatty liver disease.
The excess of sugar fools our metabolism into turning off our bodies appetite-control system. When this happens the body doesn’t stimulate insulin, which in turn fails to suppress ghrelin, or “the hunger hormone,” which then fails to stimulate leptin or “the satiety hormone.” This is what sets us up for insulin resistance, metabolic dysfunction, weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL and increased LDL, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides, high blood pressure and more uric acid which place us in the risk factor for heart and kidney disease. All these things from the over consumption of sugar that is in processed foods.

Legumes, Lectin and  peanuts.

Legumes contain lectins. Peanuts are a legume and it also carries  aflatoxins which is a type of mold. In my book, Beyond the bite, I go into detail explaining why you should avoid Legumes, Lectin and peanuts.

List of legumes

  • Alfalfa
  • Asparagus bean
  • Asparagus pea
  • Baby lima bean
  • Black bean
  • Black-eyed pea
  • Black turtle bean
  • Boston bean
  • Boston navy bean
  • Broad bean

  • Southern pea
  • Sugar snap pea
  • Soybean
  • Wax bean
  • White vlover
  • White kidney bean
  • White pea bean

 

Corn

I bet  you didn’t know that corn is a actually a grain that is full of  Omega 6s that  produce hormones that support inflammation. it is genetically modified food and continues to be re-engineered in more ways that we can imagine. Although corn doesn’t have gluten in it, it can still aggravate auto immune disorders. Corn contains lectins and we can’t digest it. Not to mention its loaded with pesticides.

Eggs 

If you are allergic to eggs your immune system will overreact to the  proteins found in eggs. Many people who are allergic to eggs react to the proteins in the egg whites, but others just simply can’t tolerate the proteins in the yolk. Each time a person with a egg intolerance eat an egg, the body thinks these proteins are harmful invaders.

Your immune system go to work defending your body from this “invader.” This causes an allergic reaction, and chemicals like histamine are released in the body. Did  you know that the  viruses for the flu vaccine are grown in chicken eggs.
The release of these chemicals can cause someone to have the following problems:
wheezing
trouble breathing
coughing
hoarseness
throat tightness
stomachache
vomiting
diarrhea
itchy, watery, or swollen eyes
hives
red spots
swelling
a drop in blood pressure

Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why you have hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, personality changes, leaky gut, depression, an autoimmune disorder, chronic pain, no metabolism and low sex drive, bloating, anxiety, menstrual problems and infertility. It starts with becoming aware and how your health can be influenced by many different circumstances.
How would you define good health? Logically one would define good health as absence of a disease or following some sort of ground rules that avoid developing a disease. This book can help you begin to understand what a Keto Autoimmune protocol is and start guiding you in the redevelopment and healing of your body. You will begin to understand how to fix your gut, strengthen your immunity and fight inflammation with an autoimmune approach. The Keto AIP removes all the common inflammatory food triggers that stimulate a possible autoimmune reaction in the body. Along with helping to reset those adrenals, boosting that energy and doing a little ass kicking to those hormones that have decided to act like a wild college student and pull an all-nighter the day before final exams.
Your health doesn’t have to be a difficult situation but a positive realization that things need to change. This new lifestyle change has many parts to it and I hope you will embrace not only the physical but the spiritual awakening. Common food intolerances that are known to trigger inflammation are eliminated in this Keto AIP protocol are Nightshades, Eggs, Grains (gluten), Dairy, Legumes, Corn, Soy, Dairy and lectins.
