3 Ways to Glow like a Bride (Groom Not Required)

June 26th, 2013

Do we hear wedding bells?

 

The summer season of matrimony is here. But you don’t need to be a bona fide bride to radiate like one. Follow these 3 tips to get glowing like a bride — everyday!

1. Great skin starts from within. A healthy lifestyle is a must for gorgeous, glowing skin. Exercise and lots of color-rich fruits and veggies are integral to looking and feeling your best. We recommend 01 Invigorate to help you get moving and 20 Abstain to curb cravings.

2. Fake it. Makeup is magic when it comes to giving your skin a brightening boost. “Bridal makeup is all about creating a natural, fresh-faced look,” says 21 Drops staffer and makeup artist, Elisheva. “A good foundation and concealer are the mainstays of a radiant complexion. Try a highlighter on cheekbones and eyelids, too,” she advises. “For eye makeup, stick to shades close to your natural skin tone; overly dark tones can be too harsh. Finish off with a soft pink lip for a luminous look.” Of course, we all know that the best beauty potion is sleep… we know you’re busy busy busy, but please don’t skimp. Try our 18 Sleep; it quiets an anxious mind, soothes and sedates the body and mind. It’s also anti-oxidant rich to help ensure your most glowing skin for your special day (or for every day!)

3. Don’t Forget to Smile. The main reason brides are so beautiful is because they are simply happy! In the words of the always-beautiful Audrey Hepburn, “I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.” Try our 10 Calm to help keep your cool and 06 Passion engage your most charismatic self.

Natural Migraine Treatment: A Peek Inside Cary’s Medicine Cabinet

June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month.

 

In lieu of popping a pill, try a natural headache remedy to combat that pounding, incessant ache. Our anti-oxidant rich 05 Headache fuses the 100% natural essential oils of Rosewood Wood Oil, Lavender Flower Oil, and Peppermint Leaf Oil to help relieve that dull ache or throbbing pain and stimulate proper blood flow.

Keep this natural treatment in your medicine cabinet, first aid kit, or desk drawer, alongside your remedies. Roll onto temples, inside of wrists, and the sides of your neck at first sign of headache or migraine.

Cary’s Commencement: “Following our dreams is not always easy…”

June 1st, 2013

I’ve always been a nature lover. Growing up, I had an insatiable appetite for the outdoors and a burning curiosity about everything I saw in the natural world. I made it my personal quest to discover how plants can help us live better lives.

But following our dreams is not always easy.

The “green” lifestyle was not trendy like it is now, and I encountered many setbacks. But I always knew I was born for this, soldiered on and followed my calling. Until this day, I never stop pursuing my life’s mission — to bring the healing powers of essential oils to create healthier and more beautiful lives, naturally.

For those of you who have a passion, let it guide you to where you are meant to be.

There will always be those who doubt us. The important thing is to hold on to what captivates you; immerse yourself in what you love. Look into your heart and answer this question – “What gives my life meaning?”. Never stop following that internal compass. It’s what you are here for.

Graduation is a time to rediscover your true calling. Your journey to an inspired life begins now.


I’m so proud of my son, Barron, who graduated this month due to a great amount of diligence, persistence and lots of 09 Focus! My heartiest congratulations to all the season’s graduates and their families. Well done!

-Cary Caster, 21 Drops founder
