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.

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

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 ... Read More

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. ... Read More

Easy Buttercream Lotion

This is my favorite all-purpose lotion! It's a mid-weight lotion that works well throughout the seasons, and it really moisturizes my skin without being greasy! I've been using it for many years (at least 10!) since I first discovered that my skin hates almost any product I've ever purchased. Out of desperation I developed my own lotion recipe, which might ... Read More

Grapefruit Ginger Body Wash

Do you ever look at the label on the back of your bathroom products? I feel like my strategy has been mostly along the lines of 'if is says natural or organic, I'm probably alright'! I mean... when it says 99.3% natural - how bad can it be? The answer to that question will likely go unanswered in our lifetime, ... Read More

20 Ways to Love Fall

Fall is hands down, my favorite season! Even so, when the leaves first start to turn and there's a chill in the air, I get a bit grumpy. Something about the end of summer makes it really hard to embrace fall, and I'm always dragging my feet because winter around here is like 8....months.....long....! I'm only exaggerating about the winter ... Read More

Sunflower Seed Scrub

This Sunflower Seed Scrub is one of the only scrubs I can use on my face without causing irritation! It's not my original idea by any means, in fact I've seen it in every DIY product book I've ever picked up! It's super simple, and can be made in minutes with a food processor or blender. My favorite thing about ... Read More
