AMBRE BLENDS FEAUTRED IN GLAMOURMAG.COM “12 SECRETS OF WOMEN WHO SWITCHED TO NATURAL BEAUTY ROUTINES”

After a few years of hit-or-miss formulas—and some seriously crunchy packaging—natural beauty products have finally found their spot on the shelf. They’ve become easier to find for a reason: Natural formulas are more effective than ever, and the upgraded Insta-friendly aesthetic doesn’t hurt either. Still, if you’ve been wearing one signature lip color since high school or don’t trust anything besides your go-to serum, you might not have been tempted over to the au naturel side…yet. That’s why we’ve asked women for their best advice on taking your beauty routine to the next, natural level.

“I swear by face oils! The natural face oils available today are incredible and have totally changed my skin for the better. I also love using a simple rose face spritz, and I mix coconut oil with a few drops of essential oils to add shine to my hair. The trick with natural beauty products is to find a product with a scent that you love so you’ll continue to use it regularly. I love Ambre Natural Deodorant ($19) because it smells amazing and really works, which is hard to come by with natural deodorants.” —Tara Sowlaty, cofounder of lifestyle blog How You Glow

Ambre Blends featured in Sarah Life and Style’s “MY TRAVEL ESSENTIALS”

 

I travel. Not as much as the average jet setter, but about every six weeks or so, I’m packing my carry on for another work trip. Over the past three years, I’ve gotten pretty good at learning what stays and what goes. So, I thought it would be fun to share a blog post on my absolute necessities when I fly. Things I double and triple check I haven’t forgotten before I head to the airport.

Here’s everything! My Travel “Bible,” if you will.

  1. My cell phone. Because, duh. But almost as important as my phone itself is my portable charger from Ventev. I don’t know what it is about travel and airports, but I’ll be sitting there sometimes, just watching my battery go from 90% to 35% in a matter of 20 minutes. I mean, why? I’m not even using it! A phone at less than 40% battery sends me into a spiral of anxiety and self-loathing, especially because it’s my connection to my kids and my navigation when I land. My battery can.not.die. This Ventiv portable charger has been a lifesaver! I plug it in at home the night before I leave and stick it in my travel bag in the morning. When my phone needs a little CPR, I just plug it in and turn it on, and it’ll charge my phone so quickly. And then all is right with the world again.

Indy Star – 80 gift ideas from Indy’s creative class

2016: The year of merry minimalism.

This year, we asked 20 Central Indiana creative types to go KonMari on their holiday wish lists. (For those of you not familiar, it’s a method developed by Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo, author of the best-selling “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.”)

They pared their lists to four key items: something they want, something they need, something to wear (or eat), something to read. That’s 80 ideas to make you a holiday hero to the hard-to-impress people in your life.

Nuvo – Run your home or business with Green Power in Indianapolis

Renee,

Does the city use electricity through [IPL’s Green Power Option] program? Does NUVO? What businesses in the IPL area use it?

Richard

Richard,

Great questions! For those who don’t already know, IPL’s Green Power Option allows both residential and commercial/industrial IPL customers to pay a small premium to specify an amount equal to 100%, 50%, or 25% of your monthly electricity use to be generated by a renewable source. The current premium is $0.001 per kilowatt-hour and is used to purchase power from Indiana and Midwestern wind farms.

IPL isn’t able to share which business customers participate without their permission, but some participants promote their enrollment. I found a few online, including Ambre Blends, Indianapolis Zoo, Wild Birds Unlimited, Reverie Estates, LightBound, Harding Poorman, and BioStorage Technologies.

Ambre Blends Featured in Vogue Magazine – “Why You Should Visit Kansas City, Indianapolis, and Oklahoma City”

The vast, middle of our country, known as “America’s Heartland,” appears as an endless patchwork of farmland and snaking rivers, punctuated by the occasional city that often seems so small and inconsequential—especially from an airplane window. To coastal dwellers, these “flyover cities,” a slightly disparaging term, refer mostly to the swath of land making up states like Illinois, Oklahoma, Indiana, and Missouri. Beyond the well-traversed Windy City of Chicago, a few smaller Midwestern cities are luring travelers with their creative cuisine, live tunes, new museums, and serious laid-back charm. Here, a guide to three cities worth landing, and lingering, in.

I STOPPED PUTTING TOXIC CHEMICALS ON MY SKIN, HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

 

Just say no to propylparabens.

 

Michelle_Persad_Portrait-3

Take a look in your medicine cabinet, and think about it—can you name a single ingredient in any of the products you use every day? It turns out that the average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her skin every day, without even knowing.

A little over a month ago I spoke with beauty activist Jessica Assaf about the lack of transparency in the beauty industry. She told me a few upsetting facts, among them that the FDA doesn’t require any pre-market testing or approval before beauty products hit shelves. She also explained how the European Union has banned over 1,300 chemicals found in cosmetics, as scientific studies suggest that they could be linked to cancer, reproductive harm and neurotoxicity. However, the FDA has only banned eight and restricted three.

It got me thinking seriously about the products that I put on my body every day. So I decided to do a complete overhaul of my cosmetics and only use products that contain non-toxic ingredients that I can pronounce.

Elite Daily – Switch Out Your Beauty Staples For All-Natural Products

Let’s face it: It’s time to take care of yourself. But, let’s go beyond eating healthy and exercising three times a week.

Harmful, deadly chemicals are everywhere, including in most of the hygiene products that we use daily. We’re voluntarily putting cancer-causing ingredients on our skin and in our bodies every single day.

If that doesn’t scare you, then I don’t know what will. But fear not: For every chemical-laden product, there is a natural alternative.

Ready to green your beauty routine? Here is an easy, four-step guide for a more natural approach to hygiene:

Organic Spa Magazine – Best Natural Deodorants

It’s a tall order. We want our deodorant to keep us smelling fresh, but most traditional formulations contain aluminum-based compounds, which block the sweat glands. Some studies have linked aluminum, as well as other common ingredients like parabens, triclosan and phthalates, to hormone disruption and even breast cancer. read more...

There was a time when the only scent that wafted through NewBeauty’s hallways was the occasional burnt microwave popcorn smell. But ever since Editor-in-Chief Yolanda Yoh discovered a brand called Ambre Blends at a beauty industry trade show, their organic fragrance oils can be detected throughout the office.

It wasn’t long after Yolanda started wearing Ambre Essence that Managing Editor Liz Ritter took notice and began rolling on Invoke Essence almost every morning. When Senior Online Editor Marci Robin realized her office smelled better every time Liz came by, she starting using Solace Essence.

All three scents are subtle variations of an almost indescribably warm, clean, sensual base oil, which vary further with each wearer’s body chemistry. The addictive aromas become almost undetectable to the person wearing them, but those around her (or him—they’re unisex) are gently aware of a soft, sexy scent.

And once someone smells one of the essences on a friend or coworker, it’s only a matter of time before she tries them herself.

After Marci, Marketing Manager Erin Foy got on the Ambre Blends bandwagon, followed by Receptionist Nicole Battaglini, and Copy Chief Chelsea Greenwood.

No one’s bothered by the popularity, because it smells a little different—and totally lovely—on each person.

What’s that smell?
Leslie Bailey

Is it just me, or do all great things seem to come from basements? The vacuum cleaner was invented in a basement, and who could forget the sexy moves from “Dirty Dancing?” The kids were all doing them in the basements back home.

Cue the latest life-changing concoction, Ambre Blends. Ambre (pronounced Amber) Blends is a line of natural fragrance and beauty products that has taken the city by scented storm and risen to national recognition.

It’s hard to go anywhere in Indianapolis without getting a whiff, which Ambre Blends owner and creator Ambre Ashley-Crockett says she really enjoys.

“I can walk into a restaurant and say to Adam (her husband), ‘someone in here is wearing Ambre Blends,'” she said, smiling proudly. <br />Ashley-Crockett started the Ambre Blends line with one scent, Ambre Essence, which she used on her massage-therapy clients. Her interest in aromatherapy began in 1997 with an apprenticeship with an herbalist in Colorado.

Today, there are more than 12 products in the line, all based around three scents: Ambre Essence, Invoke Essence and Solace Essence. A new scent will be released in April.

The scents have been described as comforting and clean, sexy and sensual. Many wearers (which 8include teenagers to women in their 90s, Ashley-Crockett says), claim the products have a stimulating quality. Ambre oil, the common ingredient in the unisex scents, is said to have both medical and aphrodisiac qualities.

Wearing a sample of Solace, I wonder if it isn’t true. People stopped me on the street to ask what I was wearing – even though I no longer smelled it on my own body. Ashley-Crockett explained that as with any natural fragrance, your sense of smell becomes accustomed to it. And the longer you keep it the better. “It’s like a fine wine, they get stronger with age,” she said.

Since 2009, everything in the Ambre Blends line has been made in the 3,000-square-foot Broad Ripple facility except for soy candles, which are made by local artisan Meggan Delong. Before then, Ashley-Crockett said she and part-owner Stephanie Harris and production manager Rebecca Fox were busting at the seams in 300 square feet of basement.

Today, Ambre Blends is available at 44 locations in Indiana and about 170 locations in the United States and Canada. So call it clean, call it sensual – or just call it a success.

Sweet and Healthy Fragrance
I’ve always been aware of those things that I put on and in my body, but even more so now that I’m growing a little bun in the oven.

Which is why, though I love the romantic thought and smell of perfumes, I steer clear of nearly 100% of the perfumes sold in any traditional beauty or department store.

Thankfully, there are makers of beautifully smelling and wonderfully healthy natural “perfumes”.

AMBRE BLENDS

This was one of the first all-natural, essential oil perfumes I tried because the company is local to me.  And though it initially only launched regionally, Ambre Blends quickly rose to national acclaim.
