Honey Facial Massage

This Honey Massage Facial Mask has been a go-to beauty treatment for me for years. It's just one simple ingredient, but there are so many benefits. It's a case of the sum being more than the parts. Honey is a humectant, which means that it draws water to itself, helping to keep your skin moisturized. It's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral ... Read More

Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are a life saver for my skin year round, so I'm always experimenting with different scents. This Lemon Sugar Scrub has been my official scent of this summer. It smells lightly of Girl Scout lemon cookies, and leave my skin perfectly moisturized and glowing. I might be exceptionally lazy about keeping up my skin, but I love sugar ... Read More

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. ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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, ... Read More

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 ... Read More
