In my experience many Young Living products have more than 1 way to be used, an Essential Oil never has just 1 use, the Mineral Make-up can be used for more area’s than the one it’s labeled for, thieves cleaning product doubles as a stain removers and many more that I will be sharing on this blog!This little gem is no exception, diaper cream is a product for babies, kids, mommies and daddies! As you know I have 2 big teenagers so I didn’t buy this for them, I have lots of seedlings products because they are amazing for all ages.seedlings obn graphicSeedlings diaper cream can be used as a diaper cream (duh), a concealer depending on your skintype or like I use it (and my husband) as a deodorant! Yes you read it correctly and it’s super easy too.How to:
1. We add some essential oils to our armpit area, my fave is Petit Grain solo or a mix of Purification and Pine my husband likes Mister.
2. Take a pea size of the diaper cream, divide this amount over both armpits. I like to smoothe it out with a few fingers so each hand has a bit and then just apply it.Some more info on the diaper cream ingredients in dutch and english:Seedlings-Diaper-cream-ingredientenseedlings diaper rash cream

Last year this beauty junkie decided to kick it up a notch with more natural beauty products. I started researching, learning and testing new products and today I will share about my current favorite nailpolish. I have been wearing nailpolish since I was 13 years old on hands and feet (even in the winter) and can apply it like a pro on both hands, yes even a french manicure!

Traditional nailpolish has so many chemical nasties in it, I just had to switch from my beloved brands Essie, Herome and my staple top coat Out the Door to a more natural brand. There are plenty of brands that are 5 – 9 or even 10 free I have tried 2 brands; SOPHi by Piggy Paint and Boho Green, my personal favorite is Boho Green.

My findings:
Both nailpolishes are only sold online or through a salon.

Sophi has lovely colors, is a bit thicker but takes more time to apply (you need to blowdry between layers), doesn’t last as long as I am used to (1 week). It has a special remover, but didn’t like the process, alternatively you can peel it off but your nails will not be very happy with that. Sophi is 6-free and the average price in the Netherlands 9.95

Boho Green takes longer to dry so be aware of that when applying all 4 layers and lasts me a week if I’m carefull but definitely longer than Sophi.
Can be removed with any old nailpolish remover, however to keep that chemical free I use Lemongrass Essential oil combined with a paper towel (so not a cotton pad or a tissue). Boho is ? free and the average price in the Netherlands is 6,95 and I’m in luck because my beautician orders me every color I would like to try.

What nailpolish do you currently use? Is it safe? If you are considering getting a less toxic version, good for you there are plenty of options.

Oh and if you would like to use a nontoxic nailpolish remover, just use lemongrass essential oil and a papertowel. I use about 6 drops for all my nails ….
