My dad recently made a trip to the hospital only to discover he had several clogged arteries. Two arteries were partially blocked, while a third was blocked completely. Lucky for him medicine is advancing.
The doctors were able to clear out the two partially blocked arteries at our local hospital without surgery. However, my dad is headed to UVA later this month to have the fully blocked artery handled. Roto-rooter style. Seriously. Apparently doctors are now able to clear out clogged arteries completely. So bypass surgery, for my dad at least, won’t be needed.
With my own set of health issues along with some recent weight gain, I thought it was time I scheduled a doctor visit as well. So yesterday I visited my physician to have my thyroid checked along with a panel of blood work to check my cholesterol and basically everything else.
As I’m already a few years into my forties, it seemed like a good idea regardless of the weight gain. I mean if there are changes I can make now to avoid being in my dad’s shoes when I’m 70, then I’m all for it.
Of course my doctor had questions for me. As he’d prescribed medication for anxiety the last time I’d been there, and I’d recently gone off that medication on my own, he got the mini life spiel. This included the divorce and of course my current financial struggles.
Being a single woman – especially a divorced single women – can be hard. We are often at a financial disadvantage. Men are often the breadwinners in a marriage. While this isn’t true in all cases, it was in mine.
Not only had I recently ventured into full time self-employment, but while married I racked up a bit of debt to furnish the house and so forth. So when my husband and I split I lost his share of income. I not only had substantially more debt than I did going into the marriage, my expenses also tripled. After all, I needed a place to live.
I’m sure there are many of you who have gone through similar situations. Even if you’ve never been married, women’s wages still tend to be lower than men’s. And I can’t even imagine the staggering amount of student loan debt many of you have if nothing else.
As a DIY blogger my lack of disposable income of course becomes an issue. Gone are the days of wine induced online supply shopping. Instead I’ve been slowly using up my dwindling supply of bath and beauty ingredients.
My natural soap and skin care recipes have started to become simpler with a nod back to some of the more common ingredients used in skin care. And I’ve become more conscious that there is a need for quality, budget friendly recipes. This simple 3-ingredient matcha all over moisture stick recipe is just that.
Simple & Affordable Natural Skin Care
Inspired by the MYMATCHA All-Over Moisture Stick from cocokind, my matcha all over stick recipe contains the same three ingredients as the original – organic virgin coconut oil, organic cosmetic beeswax and organic matcha green tea powder.
Packaged in eco-friendly, biodegradable paperboard push up tubes, my matcha all over moisture stick works great as a spot treatment for dry hands, feet and elbows. It can also be used as a moisturizing lip balm, an eyeshadow primer, an under eye balm and a dark circle corrector.
If you’re allergic to coconut oil, you can still make my matcha all over moisture stick recipe. Simply substitute the coconut oil with organic babassu oil. (For more information on making substitutions in your homemade natural skin care recipes, I recommend the book, Carrier Oils: A beginner’s guide to using over 40 carrier oils in bath and beauty recipes, by Cari Dunn.)
Following you’ll find my recipe for making your own natural matcha all over moisture stick. I hope you enjoy it as a much as I do. Don’t stop there however. Keep reading after the recipe to learn where you can buy the MYMATCHA All-Over Moisture Stick from cocokind at a discounted price.
I also share more natural skin care recipes that use just two, three and four simple ingredients to help you stay on budget at the end of this article.
Matcha All Over Moisture Stick Recipe
3 oz. organic virgin coconut oil
1 oz. organic cosmetic beeswax
.05 oz. organic matcha green tea powder
Weigh out the ingredients.
Using a digital scale weigh out the coconut oil, beeswax and matcha green tea powder.
Combine and melt the beeswax and coconut oil.
Combine the coconut oil and beeswax in a universal double boiler and heat until melted.
Mix in the matcha green tea powder.
Once melted, remove from heat and stir in the matcha green tea powder.
Pour into your containers.
Pour the liquid matcha all over moisture stick into your containers of choice.
If doubled, my recipe fills five biodegradable 1.5 oz. paperboard push up tubes. Alternately, you can also half my matcha all over moisture stick recipe and fill around six smaller .3 oz. paperboard tubes. Or simply use empty lip balm containers.
Label or decorate your packaging.
Once the ingredients for your matcha all over moisture stick have solidified, cap the product containers and label as desired for personal use or gifting.
I diagonally wrapped patterned washi tape around my paperboard push up tubes, then trimmed off the excess with an X-ACTO knife.
