DIY Homemade Deodorant

This recipe has changed my life. I’m sure you’ve heard something like that before, but it’s true and it could change yours as well. I have tried so many different deodorants from the commercial ones containing aluminum to almost every natural brand that exists. Each one worked, sort of, to one degree (no pun intended) or another for awhile. I was never happy with what I was using until I found this recipe on Crunchy Betty’s site.

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

This Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub smells like pumpkin pie, and it's definitely my favorite fall homemade beauty product! Lately, we've been in Canada celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving, (chasing the Northern Lights) and I've been embracing all things fall! With the weather turning cold and frosty at night, it's time to bring out the sugar scrubs again to keep my skin well hydrated. ...

Cooling Aloe-Mint Body Lotion

This lotion is perfect for summertime because of the 'cooling effect' of the aloe and mint. It's particularly awesome after a long day on your feet, and I really love it massaged into my legs and feet after a day hiking in the mountains. With the the warmer temperatures of summer I like to use a light moisturizer, and the cooling ...

Lavender Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are the best way to break into making your own bath and body products because they're so easy to make. They just require a mixing bowl and at sturdy spoon, with only 10 minutes from start to finish! They're a favorite of mine because they simultaneously exfoliate your skin while deeply moisturizing it at the same time. They're ...

Strawberry Honey Facial Treatment

Strawberries and honey together make an amazing and easy facial treatment! Strawberries contain multiple acids that help to get rid of dead skin cells and tighten your pores, while honey is antibacterial, cleanses, and helps your skin stay properly moisturized. And if that wasn't enough already, there's a little gelatin in there which also helps to tighten and smooth your ...

Refreshing Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite remedies to rough/dry winter skin. I always have the best of intentions going into winter that I'm actually going to moisturize everyday. But life gets busy, and it ends up being more like once a month instead of everyday. After a few months of this negligence, the cold weather really takes it's toll, ...

Lemon Cream Body Butter

I posted this recipe almost 3 years ago, and it's still my favorite body butter, (I often use it in place of lotion during the really cold, dry months). Usually body butters take forever to sink in and leave my skin semi oily, but this body butter absorbs quickly and leaves my skin super soft. I've updated the photos for ...

Homemade Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm

I love all things grapefruit, the taste... the smell... you name it! I ended up developing this lip balm out of necessity, you see I've gotten spoiled over the last few years with a local company that made the best grapefruit lip balm out of completely natural ingredients. However all of sudden I can't find it anywhere, so I did ...

Lemon Mint Spa Water

The combination of lemon and mint is incredibly refreshing, especially on a hot day. We've been making pitcher after pitcher of this spa water all summer long. But... even though the weather has been cooling a bit, we're still making it all the time. It took me awhile, but I finally wrote down the measurements for what we've been using. ...
