Natural Perfume & Anti Aging Roller Giveaway


While working on a music video recently, I found myself enthralled in discussion with one of the coolest chicks I had ever met. Tali Elizabeth of Dolife LA is equal parts beautiful hippie and grounded intellectual. An avid devotee of using natural oils in both health and beauty, Tali sat down to give me the 411 on natural oils and how fab they are in beauty products (as opposed to all those common chemicals), which is something we at Séchoir are firm believers in!

I personally have been intrigued by natural oils ever since my sister, Tanya cured my aching stomach by making me swallow a shot-glass of water filled with a mixture of ginger, peppermint and fennel seed. I instantly felt better and knew for myself that there was something to it. After talking with Tali about my own experience and seeing the radiating glow of her skin (I mean, not fair) I had to know her secrets.

So I convinced her to sit down with me and answer some questions. (Yay for us!)


1. How did your love affair with oils start?

It all started one day when I was hiking with my friend Kelly Ann. Knowing my issues with respiratory issues. she brought me a sample of a special oil blend for respiratory support. I was skeptical at first and thought it was definitely a hippie trend, but I tried it and noticed the results. A week later, I went to her oil class to learn about every oil possible, and have been obsessed ever since.

2. What’s the best oil to use on your face in conjunction with your skincare and why?

My favorite oil to use on my face is a combination of Frankincense Resin, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lavender Flower, Myrrh Resin, Helichrysum Flower, and Rose Flower essential oils, also known as my secret weapon ~ the anti-aging blend. It helps to keep my skin looking healthy and young. I use this oil on my face without worry because it doesn’t have any harmful chemicals in it.

3. Have you made your own toner or mask with essential oils?

Yes, it’s super easy to make! This is my go-to toner recipe:

Use a 2oz glass spray bottle and fill half of the bottle with filtered water and the other half with witch hazel {alcohol free}. Then add 6 drops of Lavender and 6 drops of Frankincense. You can switch up this simple recipe depending on your skin type. Other great oils to add are Geranium and Tea Tree oil.

4. What’s your favorite oil for overall health?

Frankincense without a doubt! Frankincense is the swiss-army knife of essential oils as it has incredible health benefits. It supports healthy cellular function and it helps the body to stay young at the physiological level. When inhaled or diffused, it promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, and overall wellness. It’s hard not to be obsessed with this oil!

5. If our readers had to choose one oil, what would it be? And why?

Lavender is a must-have oil and a great place to start for people who are new to essential oils. Not only is Lavender calming and cost effective, it also has other benefits including soothing occasional skin irritations, reducing anxious feelings and supports restful sleep.

6. Why do u find essential oils so interesting and important for your health?

Essential oils are so interesting to me because it’s so different from the medicine my family used growing up. In fact, I was a “gold member” at Rite Aid which meant I got 20% off all products. Im proud to say I lost my discount last year!

Essential oils have the ability to empower people to take care of their health naturally in ways they never thought possible.


7. What would you tell someone who is a non-believer in the oil movement?

I would tell them that everyone has their own journey to find what works for them. The first step is trying oils and seeing if they make a difference. I am so grateful that I was able to find a natural alternative for my health.

8. What finally made you a believer?

There was a point where I just thought to myself, what do I have to lose? Sometimes when you are having these reoccurring issues, you will try anything for relief. I am so lucky that this worked and I feel better in my life because of it.
