How to Do a DIY At-Home Facial

For many years I was super dedicated to a weekly at home facial, and my skin definitely thanked me for it. However life does get crazy at times, and I’ve fallen out of this weekly habit. But ‘now’ is always a good time to jump back on the wagon so to speak, and I’ve been working on taking better care … Read More

DIY Linen Spray

I have never bought linen spray, the price tag has always been a little high. Not too long ago a good friend bought a bottle for me, (extravagant spoiling presents are great). But now I’m hooked on the stuff, it just smells so good. So, I set out to make my own. Instead of costing somewhere around $18 it only costs only $2.58 to make your own (prices based off of a 4oz bottle of lavender essential oil).

Recharge Your Towels

I first came across this idea on Pinterest and I knew I had to try it! There comes a point in the life of every towel when it’s just not smelling quite right. No matter how much Clorox for colors I’ve used, there was still an ‘off’ smell. (My latest updated tips for this method are located at the end … Read More

Homemade Honey Lavender Lip Balm

I love making lip balms because they’re the perfect balance between a chapstick and a lip gloss. Don’t get me wrong there’s definitely a place and use for all 3, but lip balms are my most used lip product.

Pineapple Mojito Body Sugar Scrub

I’ve been using my Pineapple Facial as an extremely effective treatment for my face for about 8 years now. It naturally exfoliates due to the high content of an enzyme called bromelain. It’s also anti-inflammatory and works wonders evening out my skin tone.

Cucumber Collagen Facial Mask

I just got done rinsing this mask off in the shower, and I love how smooth my skin feels right now. I’ve been putting collagen into my green smoothies for the last few months. But it was just recently I thought of putting it into a facial mask as well.

Homemade Lemon Lotion Bars

I’m not sure why I’ve never made lotion bars before, but I’m making up for lost time now! They’re even easier to make than homemade lotion because there’s no need to be emulsifying liquid together with oil. Lotion bars are solid, with no liquid ingredients at all, which also makes them incredibly shelf stable.

Soothing Calendula Honey Facial Mask

This recipe actually started out as a turmeric face mask, but that didn’t end very well. I’d been seeing recipes for turmeric face masks everywhere, and they all said something along the lines of ‘try it and see how your face just glows’. Hmmm… try it they said – you’ll glow they said – well let me tell you what, … Read More

Creamsicle Calendula Body Lotion

I’ve always loved the smell of orange and vanilla together. It must go back to my childhood love of creamsicle popsicles and orange sherbet. So I knew I wanted to create a body lotion with those poignant smells in mind. I was also thinking of natural ways to make it a nice golden color, when I finally came up with … Read More
