Whether you’re ready to RELAX or RE-ENERGIZE…

We’ve got you covered!

Step 1

Start with your Favorite Beverage

Treat yourself to your favorite beverage and get ready for some life-changing self care!

Need to RELAX?

Did you know that chamomile tea can help you relax and rest? Rest is one of the #1 factors that contributes to healthy, glowing skin.

Step 2

Give Your Skin a Deep Cleansing

Tip: It is usually recommended to avoid using cleansers containing essential oils directly on your eye area, nostrils, and lips. Use natural coconut oil and very warm water to remove eye and lip makeup.
These all-natural cleansing ‘Warsh’ bars are handcrafted in the U.S.A. with essential oils.
Every purchase supports women survivors of poverty, addiction, trafficking, trauma, and abuse.
Not sure which all-natural cleanser with essential oils is right for you?

Click on each ‘Warsh’ bar below to explore its unique benefits!

Tea Tree & Charcoal 

Recommended for Deep Cleansing, Oil Control, Treatment of Acne, Psoriasis

This all-natural cleansing bar with tea tree essential oil and activated charcoal will give your skin a deep cleansing and help remove impurities – reducing inflammation due to acne and the appearance of your pores.

Invigorating ‘Warsh’ Bar

Recommended for Soothing Relief of Aching Muscles, Treatment of Acne

This all-natural cleansing bar with  rosemary, and lavender essential oils and will invigorate tired and aching muscles while rejuvenating dull skin. The citrus based bergamot essential oils will help unclog pores and balance sebum levels.

Rosemary Fir ‘Warsh’ Bar

Recommended for Smoothing & Balancing Skin Tone, Itch Relief

This all-natural cleansing bar with rosemary and fir needle essential oils smooths skin with its astringent properties that help decongest pores and prevent future breakouts. It helps relieve  itching due to eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

Lather your favorite cleanser on your face and body and allow it to cleanse your skin for 30 seconds to 1 minute for dry to normal skin and 1 – 2 minutes for oily skin.
Rinse well.
Tip: If you’re new to deep skin cleansing or it’s been a while since you’ve taken some time to give your skin some self care, you may experience some initial “breakout” for several days, as your pores become unclogged and your skin is finally able to expel impurities that have been trapped.
A compress of very warm water and oatmeal – food grade – used as a homemade mask can help draw out the impurities and clear up possible breakouts faster.
As always, avoid using drying ingredients like oatmeal around your sensitive eye, nostril, and lip areas.

Step 3

Gently Steam Your Face Using a Cosmetic Steamer or Enjoy a Hot Shower

Carefully steaming your face for up to 10 minutes, using a cosmetic steamer, a bowl of hot water, or enjoying a hot shower helps prepare your skin for exfoliation by softening or “melting” hardened oils that clog your pores.

Leaning 8 – 10 inches above a cosmetic steamer or bowl of hot water while draping or “tenting” a towel over your head can help concentrate the steam around your face. If the steam feels uncomfortably hot, then allow more space between the heat source and your skin to prevent burning.

Use caution when handling hot water or steam to prevent injury from burns.

Step 4

Follow Up with Your Favorite Scrub

Step 5

Use a Skin Toner to Balance Your Skin’s PH Levels

Every woman’s body is totally unique with her own signature body chemistry.
Use a skin toner that is specially formulated for your unique skin PH levels. Balancing your skin PH levels will help prevent irritation, itching, and redness.

Don’t have a skin toner?

Step 6

Moisturize Your Skin – Even if it’s Oily!

Tip: All skin types benefit from moisturizer.
If your skin is oily, then use a moisturizer specially made for oily skin.
Many women with different skin types find pure natural coconut oil – food grade – to be a very effective and inexpensive natural skin moisturizer.
But you’ll want to allow it to fully absorb into your skin before applying makeup, clothes, or coming into contact with furniture or bedding.
You will need to experiment for yourself to discover which moisturizer is best for your skin.

Again, every woman’s body is totally unique with her own signature body chemistry. Whenever possible, try to use natural body products to protect your skin from the damaging effects of chemicals and free radicals that contribute to skin disease and premature aging.
