I’m thrilled to present the first “natural beauty buff” feature of 2014 to you: Welcome Hollow & Ridge founder Issa Dixon to the lineup of amazing beauties featured on since 2012!

Issa is the wizard behind Hollow & Ridge’s line of essential oil fragrances, toners (lavender and rose — review coming soon!) and balm that I’m especially eager to try.

Issa’s green beauty story echoes many we’ve heard from other inspiring founders; she was raised by conscientious parents and appreciated the great outdoors and the amazing healing gifts Mother Nature brings us.

The West Virginia-born beauty became captivated by herbs, which lead to her fascination with aromatherapy and eventually the launch of her company rooted in beneficial essential oils.

As much as she loves essential oils and aromatherapy, Issa also, like the rest of us, indulges in other beauty products. Here’s what she uses regularly.

As usual, I’ve starred what I also use and love!

Lush BIG Sea Salt Shampoo

“I have thick unruly hair. This stuff tames my flyways while giving me a fresh beach hair look. I don’t need any additional products for my hair when I use this stuff. I love the scalp exfoliation you get from the sea salt.”

Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue

I have recently acquired all kinds of seasonal allergies. I have tried 100’s of eye creams. This cream reduces the dark puffy skin under my eyes like no other. Morning circles and bags are gone.”

Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum

“This was my first fancy attempt at pushing back Mother Nature. If you need a quick, fix this stuff works. It immediately tightens the skin making wrinkles and pores less prominent. Instead of makeup I wear this much of the time.”

Organic Puna Body Butter by Island Flower Alchemy

Handmade Puna body butter is what my entire family uses for dry cracked winter skin. It is a mixture of raw Hawaiian beeswax, organic cocoa butter, and a secret mix of local botanical extracts and flower essences. I love to mix a few drops of our Hollow & Ridge blends with my Puna Butter for an all over body rub. The Balance Blend mixes the best.”

*Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps

“Always a great choice. I use Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Lavender soap all summer long. It’s great for camping. You can use this multipurpose soap for washing out clothes, washing dishes; in a pinch I’ve even brushed my teeth with it. Smell goods, leaves skin clean and feeling fresh.” may include affiliate links to featured products. Not all product links are affiliate links.
