Eco Living: Autumn And Winter Skin Care Ingredients
Li Wong's Eco Living Articles
Written by Li Wong   

As the seasons change, you may be noticing changes in your skin too.  During the cooler seasons, skin is usually more prone to dryness, irritation, and dehydration.  Here are some of my favorite skin care ingredients to use during the fall and winter months.

When I think of the autumn and winter, I think of juicy pears!  Pears are excellent to use in skin care.  They are mildly exfoliating, but gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.  Pears leave the skin soft and smooth, and hydrated. I like to use pears in masks and scrubs.  For a super easy mask, mash a small slice of pear and apply it onto your facial skin.   Leave it on for 10 minutes, and then rinse well.  It’s super simple, but your skin will look and feel fabulous!  You could add other ingredients to your pear mask like oatmeal, clay, honey, or yogurt: the possibilities are endless!

Avocado oil is a great oil to use during the cooler months.  It is suitable for dry, dehydrated, normal, and combination skin, though some people with oily skin love it too!  It is also great for sensitive skin.  Avocado oil is a rich, heavy weight oil.  However, unlike other heavy oils, it is very fast absorbing.  It is very effective at helping the skin retain moisture.  Avocado oil is rich in vitamin D and lecithin.  It is highly recommended for scars and inflamed skin issues like eczema or dermatitis.

Inspired Living: The Best Antibacterial Essential Oils for Clear Skin

One of the top properties of essential oils happens to be that they are often a wonderful natural antiseptic and anti-bacterial agent. This makes them the perfect alternative to the often-toxic antibacterial agents we find in so many commercial soaps, washes, hand sanitizers, and cleaners. 


As someone who suffered all throughout my teens with acne, as well as many of the years between my twenties and thirties, I was always looking for something that would clean my skin and kill acne-causing bacteria without drying it out or irritating it.


Here is what I found are some of the best naturally antibacterial essential oils for clear skin. 


Lavender – Lavender may be an even more potent antibacterial agent than the more well known “acne killing oil” – tea tree oil.  Lavender is more expensive typically, but it really does have some excellent properties for killing acne bacteria. In addition, it possesses calming properties since it is also anti-inflammatory. This aids in the redness and irritation that often goes hand in hand with acne prone skin.

Rosemary is a common but much loved herb that is used in food, medicine, cosmetics, and for spiritual uses.  One of my favorite uses of rosemary is using it in skin and hair care.  Here is my recipe for rosemary infusion. 


8 ounces of distilled or spring water

1 teaspoon of rosemary



Boil the water.  Take the pot off the heat, add the rosemary, and cover.  Let it infuse for at least 15 minutes to an hour or longer.  Strain and cool.



Rosemary infusion can be used in skin or hair care.  It is an excellent skin toner.  Rosemary infusion helps hydrate the skin, improves skin clarity, and it is great for acne.  You can

Written by Li Wong of Earth Alkemie   

I love the summer time, but I hate bug bites!  I often use all natural, aromatherapy insect repellents, which prevent most bites.  However, I don’t use them daily, and sometimes I will get an insect bite doing simple outdoor tasks, like getting the mail!  So when I get bug bites I use my soothing insect bite gel or oil to reduce itchiness, redness, and inflammation.



1 oz of carrier oil or aloe gel

9 drops of lavender essential oil

9 drops of german chamomile essential oil



Add the carrier oil or aloe gel to a 1 oz bottle.  Add the essential oils, cap, and shake well before use.
