Do you buy natural lipstick? Are you concerned with gluten in your lipstick?
Back in the day I sure wasn’t! I used to rock my Cover Girl Lip Slicks. Remember those? They came in these long tubes in great sheer colors. Little did I know what I was exposing myself to back then! Lead, mineral oil and other toxins!
When I went organic in my cosmetics, I switched to natural lipstick but it never occurred to me that my lipstick might contain gluten.
A few years back, I was tested and discovered I was gluten sensitive. Gluten is a protein found in grains which when ingested can cause havoc to the body both internally and externally. Wheat germ oil or gluten based Vitamin E is sometimes added to cosmetics to give it more moisture.
Welcome to the first in what I hope to be a series of natural perfume reviews!
My mom’s birthday was May 4 and Mother’s Day always followed, so I used to tease her that she got me for two gifts. But I really loved getting my mom gifts. My usual gifts for her was jewelry. She had about every piece of jewelry you could think of with “#1 Mom” on it. She always loved what I got her!
Occasionally, I would stray from my normal routine and get her perfume. I remember one of her favorites was Chantilly. Remember that one?
When I think back to the perfumes I got her, I shudder now that I know how toxic conventional perfumes are. They’re loaded with synthetic ingredients which are only tested for their skin effects. Respiratory, neurological, or systemic effects are never tested. This is the industry norm.

Gluten can be a sneaky ingredient in many of your favourite skin care products. For those of us with allergies, the consequences can be painful and more importantly, dangerous.
For those who don’t know much about gluten and Celiac disease, let me give you the 411.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and most oats. All of these items are commonly found in your favorite foods, drinks and even beauty products.

Living in South Florida, I’ve always loved citrus. In fact, before the ole canker hit (and my trees had to be cut down , we had an orange and a grapefruit tree in the backyard. I remember picking the fruit off my tree and juicing it the old fashioned way. Just by squeezing it! That was the best juice I ever had. I miss my tree….
This brings us to today’s review…
