Listen up, beauty DIY-ers! Shannon Buck and the Fresh-Picked Beauty team are all about sharing the magic of natural beauty products. But, before you start slathering yourself in homemade lotions and potions, there are a few house rules to keep in mind. It's like a game of Monopoly; you can't just start building hotels without reading the rules first!

Just like you wouldn't blindly follow a cake recipe without knowing if you're allergic to any ingredients, you shouldn't solely rely on the information presented on this website. Do your homework! Research, read labels, heed warnings, and follow directions before using or consuming any type of product.

Before you go full-on mad scientist with your natural beauty experiments, get some professional advice. Chat with a medical professional who can help you weigh the pros and cons of using natural ingredients. And don't forget to check out all the safety data for each ingredient. Remember, knowledge is power!

Even though herbs and natural ingredients have been used successfully for centuries, it's always a good idea to consult with a naturopathic doctor, licensed herbalist, or holistic health practitioner. They're like your personal beauty guidance counselors.

Despite our best efforts to ensure that product information is as accurate as a dart on a bullseye, manufacturers and companies might occasionally tweak their ingredient lists. So, the actual product packaging and materials may contain more or different information than shown on Fresh-Picked Beauty.

And remember, this site is like a reference book, not a substitute for professional advice. So, if you suspect you have a health problem, don't play doctor—reach out to a medical professional immediately. Please note that information and statements regarding dietary supplements and personal care products haven't been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and aren't intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition.

Lastly, Shannon Buck and the Fresh-Picked Beauty team can't be held responsible for any inaccuracies or misstatements about products and/or ingredients. So, read, research, and consult before you create. Happy DIY-ing!
