Plant-Based Face and Body Ritual

Plant-Based Face and Body Ritual

Updated May 17, 2019

Disclosure: I only highlight companies and products that align with Empower Palette’s values and/or I personally use. This blog receives a commission from purchases through some of the links in this post (affiliate links). To see a full list of the brands I earn commissions from, check out the shop page.


Empower Palette supports lifestyle changes instead of diets or health fads. Why? Because you deserve better, your body deserves better than a one week fling with the paleo diet or a one time honey mask. Make a commitment to yourself, your health and wellness by committing to a routine or using only clean beauty products.

Committing doesn’t mean you can’t try new foods or new skincare products. It means that the foods you choose to eat, the products you choose to try ALIGN with your lifestyle VALUES.

Today, I’m shouting out a brand that is clean, plant-based, cruelty-free and SUPER affordable! With clean packaging and simple ingredients, Natural Mixologist will undoubtedly nourish and heal your skin.

“My journey into organic apothecary began when I started to formulate skincare that was toxin free for my family.  I began to create plant-based skincare that utilized the healing power of herbs, plants, flowers and vitamin-rich plant oils.

I  approach skin care as nutrition for the skin, to heal and renew the skin. Every product in our line is touched and handled with care by me. The end result is a luxurious and effective skin care, gentle enough for your baby or even the most sensitive skin types.”

— Donica L. Johns, Founder
