“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”


So Beautiful Ministries International is all about Beauty from the inside out!
The idea of Beauty from the inside out is not a new concept. Its all about looking inward and finding the inner voice or awareness. Truthfully, developing your inner life is the key to creating your best life!

Meditation, prayer and gratitude are the building blocks for health And beauty. These practices help alleviate stress which is one of the major risk factors for disease. Stress also ages your body as your nervous system activates the fight or flight response which initiates the release of stress hormones like cortisol-the Fat Producer-among other things!
Studies have proven that meditation can also help sustain focus and improve performance.

However, the benefits of spiritual practice appear to be more than just the result of enhanced focus and concentration. Ken Pargement of Bowling Green State University instructed one group of people who suffer migraines to meditate 20 minutes each day repeating a spiritual affirmation, such as “God is good. God is peace. God is love.” The other group used a nonspiritual mantra: “Grass is green. Sand is soft.” The spiritual meditators had fewer headaches and more tolerance of pain than those who had focused on the neutral phrases(Huffington Post blog March 2012).

Now, for Beauty inside and out-

Early in my career as a beauty specialist, it became obvious that cosmetic ingredients can only go so far into the dermis for beautification and cosmetic surgery has its limitations as well. Later, I began working for an Aveda Salon, which trained their skin care specialists on the use of pure essential oils, by adding them to skin care products to customize treatments for clients. Viola!  The results were amazing.

You see, essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus and fungus cannot live.

Essential oils can help us to raise our body’s frequency=Health!

Fast forward to 2017, I’ve completed Aromatherapy training and earned my certificate as an Aromatherapist. I am so excited to share all that I have learned and still learning with you.

My mission is, as always, to help you Discover Beauty from the Inside Out!

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul. Saint Augustine

There are so many benefits to fasting; however, I feel I should mention some of the unexpected responses in our body. Some may notice a tendency to emotional sensitivity, like crying over a McDonald’s commercial, or being uncharacteristically short-tempered. Our bodies are removing toxins, which can unleash emotions that were previously masked due to medication or other vices that tend to cover our true feelings. This is why many fasting aficionados suggest being very careful with yourself during a fast. Take it easy. Spend time journaling, or music and meditation are helpful activities as your body renews itself.

What about the effect of fasting on the outside?

Fasting tends to weight loss, pretty quickly. It is a smart idea to care for your skin during this time, to avoid slack or sagging skin. However, be sure to avoid over the counter lotions and creams. As cosmetics tend to have chemicals, you do not want to defeat the purpose of cleansing by adding junk through your skin. The skin is the largest organ in our body. It is best to use coconut or olive oil to moisturize. It is also a great way to add healthy fats to our body. Fats = plump skin=smooth and wrinkle free.

A fantastic DIY recipe to assist with the sensitive emotions and moisturization is a Honey and Vanilla Bubble Soak!
This is a fantastic treat for Beauty inside and out!
Olive and Almond Oils have anti-aging benefits. These oils help firm and strengthen skin.
Honey is an anti-bacterial and will help you avoid breakouts as you cleanse your body from the inside via fasting.
Vanilla has anti-aging and healing properties.
Most of all, it makes you feel pretty!
