Fran Drescher—the actress you probably know from her iconic role in The Nanny—doesn’t skimp when it comes to her health. The cancer-surviving comedian is all about the all-natural life and eating as wholesome as possible, and that sentiment extends to her beauty products, too—so much so that she makes her own fragrances.

Instead of simply buying a signature scent, Drescher loves creating her own with the help of some trusty essential oils. “Chaé Organics oils are the best because they’re completely made with things that occur in nature,” she told The Strategist. “Artificial fragrances are almost always toxic. Manufacturers don’t even have to disclose the ingredients. They just put the word ‘fragrance’ on the label. If you see that, run!”

That’s not the only healthy habit she revealed, though. Drescher also only eats organic, pasture-raised eggs, uses chemical- and toxin-free laundry detergent, and loves cold-processed hemp protein, which she says is great for treating PMS and menopause symptoms.

“I’ll blend Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein with organic juice or milk and organic fruit because hemp has tons of nutrients and healthy fats. Nutiva’s is also cold-processed, so you’re not losing any of those good antioxidants and omega-3 to heating,” she said. “It helps reduce heart disease, improves your skin, and helps reduce symptoms of PMS and menopause. It’s like a little miracle shake!”

And if you can’t take healthy-living beauty advice from the star of the oft-overlooked ’90s classic The Beautician and the Beast, really, who can you trust?
