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. Collagen is reported to be incredible for your skin, hair, ... Read More

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

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 ...
