Cleansing Oil


Growing up in a household that encouraged “back in the old country” solutions,  my life is peppered with hundreds of uses for castor oil,  avocado and cod liver oil to name a few. Our “Mima” solutions were a delicate (and sometimes marked with olfactory offensiveness) creations from the garden, the produce section, or the shelves of ethnic markets around Los Angeles. 

While I am a firm believer in the oil cleansing method, I can assure you that my experiences have not been without trauma and multifarious inquiry.  What is the oil cleansing method? Is it possible that using something with the viscosity of an enchanted balsamic reduction actually purifies and cleanses?

What is the oil cleansing method?  It is a cleansing method that uses oil to purify, cleanse and decontaminate.  How can oil do this? Oil dissolves Oil…. All skin types (even acne-prone) need your natural oils to lubricate and protect.  Cleansing oils use the “good oils” to eradicate the unwanted, bad oils. In addition to its purifying effects, essential oils are antibacterial, thus making it an ideal option for even oily or acne-prone skins.  

When you use the oil cleansing method, the cleansing oil binds with the impurities on the surface of your skin.  The scientific, differing properties between the cleansing oil and your natural oils allows for a natural removal of impurities and will not clog your pores.  Imagine for a moment you are driving with the windows rolled down on a well-earned road trip and your all-time favorite song is playing… the connection between that moment in time and your happy place is synonymous to the reaction between the cleansing oils and daily contamination on your skin.

Many oil-free cleansers can eradicate the natural oils that our skin embraces and needs to reach the utopian state of natural pH balance and glow.  And who does not want to glow and be balanced??? We are thrilled to introduce our first ever cleansing oil that embraces the astounding benefits of the oil cleansing method.

Are Organic Skin Care Products Effective?


Are Organic Skin Care Products Effective?

Are organic skin care products effective? A legit question to ask for those of us who have been raised on products containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Though these chemical-based skin solutions can produce results, they can also irritate delicate facial skin, engender skin allergies, and disrupt the natural balance of your skin. Not to mention whatever you put on your skin is also going into your body. Kind of a scary thought when you take a look at the unfamiliar ingredients listed on the back of many drug store products.

The Power of Antioxidants

So what is the alternative? Can organic skin care products deliver real results? The answer is YES! HollyBeth’s organic skin care products are made with pure, natural oils. Natural oils derived from plants, flowers, and fruits are packed full of powerful antioxidants that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Antioxidants counteract destructive free radicals that age the skin by repairing and preventing cell damage. Mother Nature’s anti-aging serum!

Organic Skin Care Solutions

HollyBeth Organics utilizes various natural oils known for their skin-healing abilities, such as camellia, calendula, and jojoba combined with essential oils like rose geranium, clary sage, lavender, and grapefruit to create luxuriously effective skin care solutions that counteract the signs of aging and promote youthful, healthy skin.  Skin is nourished, balanced, and protected without the damaging effects of chemicals and artificial ingredients.

Fighting the Signs of Aging



Fighting the signs of aging seems to be a battle that will never end. Getting older is inevitable, which means wrinkles are, too.  I love the wisdom and experience I gain with each passing birthday – the fine lines and dulling skin, not so much. I’ve noticed it most in my eye area. I can’t get away with late nights and little sleep anymore unless I want to wake up with dark circles and huge bags under my eyes. Even with a good eight hour slumber, the dull area under my eyes reminds me that my skin is not as supple as it used to be. HollyBeth Organics’ Eye Serum to the rescue!

HollyBeth Organics’ Eye Serum

HollyBeth Organics’ highly concentrated Eye Serum is the cure-all for the aging eye area. Black cumin seed oil fades dark circles, while carrot seed oil brings dull skin back to life with the powers of Vitamin A and C.

This powerful serum packs one heck of a punch to the delicate eye area, soothing, hydrating, de-puffing, nourishing, and protecting while fading the signs of aging and brightening the skin.  Seriously, what more could you ask for? Use this miracle serum both day and night to combat the signs of aging to keep your eye are looking alive and your skin refreshed – and no one will be able to tell how many hours of sleep you didn’t get ;).

Happy Leap Day!


Happy Leap Day!

Happy leap day! Tis that extra lucky day (or believed to be extra unlucky by some) that comes every four years to keep us in sync with the solar / seasonal year. It actually takes the Earth 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds to complete its orbit (around 365.25 days), so an extra day is added to the calendar to keep us in tune with that additional time.

Spring Inspiration

And who doesn’t appreciate additional time? No matter what your superstitions about today may be, an extra day on the calendar gives us all a little bit more life to live! And with spring just around the corner, what better time to be inspired by the beauty of the Earth. The flowers will be blooming, the trees will be in color again, and nature will be in full swing as everything comes back to life.

Happy Weekend – Let’s Go to Arabia Mountain



It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon here in Atlanta. The sun is shining, the sky is clear, and rumor has it the temperature is going to reach 64 degrees today. What a delightful surprise for the last weekend in January, especially since there was snow on the ground only a week ago.

Arabia Mountain

Time to take advantage of this fortuitous break from the cold and head outside!  And a day like today is perfect for a trip to Arabia Mountain. About 25 minutes outside of downtown Atlanta, this rock mountain’s unique topography hosts beautiful plant life, water formations, and landscapes that make you feel like you’re on another planet. This little piece of outer space has both bike and hiking trails, perfect for a full day of outdoor fun (and dogs are welcome, too!).

Wash Away the Dirt

After a day of navigating rocks, water, and hiking trails, you may be feeling a little sweaty and grimy. For those of us who are acne prone or have sensitive skin, sweat and oil can lead to a rash or breakouts. Wash the dirt away with HollyBeth Organics’ Cleansing Oil. Made with camellia, avocado, and lavender oils, this natural cleanser is antiseptic and antioxidant rich, healing and soothing while hydrating the skin. Calm skin irritations and knock out bacteria while infusing your skin with moisture.

No matter what you get into this weekend, make sure to give your skin some much-needed rest and relaxation. Every part of us – including our skin! – needs some time to unwind and regroup.

Have a great weekend!
