Emollient-rich cocoa butter has a delicious chocolate scent. Combined with mint, this light lotion is great for the body and senses. Got this from the book, Drop-Dead Gorgeous. It's good to use all natural products when possible. Many of the ingredients found in modern cosmetics have been identified as hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency! Cook time includes first cooling time.
Nice cleanser for face, body and hair. May have a mild bleaching effect on your hair if used over a period of time!!! Honey contains many vital vitamins and minerals and has a very high potassium content, which makes it almost impossible for bacteria to survive in it. Honey is one of the best known humectants (materials that hold moisture.) This is from the book, Natural Beauty at Home.
Adapted from The Seasonal Detox Diet, by Carrie L’Esperance. There has been a lot in the news lately about the amazing healing properties of turmeric, a free-radical-fighting antioxidant-rich spice that has been hailed as a defense against both cancer and Alzheimer’s.
This toner smells beautiful and will help you get beautiful skin too. This uses common ingredients found around the house and costs very little to make. We have a rose bush outside and a rosemary bush. Making this cost pennies! However this does require refridgeration since there are not any preservatives in it. Which also makes this a great choice for sensitive skin.
This DOES work - makes you feel relaxed. Your feet carry you everywhere and do deserve as much love as you give your soul when you read a good book or your stomach when you eat your best food dish. This bath works very well after a jet lag as well. I just threw in the ingredients together this afternoon, and I feel really good after this simple soak. Hope you enjoy it as much!
I have named this scrub after the Zaar member/chef who gave me the idea and inspiration to make this. There was a topic about nuts and their "use by date" I had a look in my kitchen cupboard and found ground almonds which had passed their date. I use almonds in the soaps I make, but at the moment I am into the salt scrubs. The vitamin E is in there for your skin and as an extra preservative. You can use different oil; choose any vegetable oil you like. I used almond fragrance oil for this scrub, and for the grated soap a cream bar. So Chia... here it is!
Treat yourself or your friends with this body scrub, it removes dead and flaky skin cells. Instead of the orange you can turn this into a lemon or lime scrub. The essential oil is optional but it does give it a nice smell. The salt will settle, shake the jar before use.
