Let's Pamper ourselves...after all, we deserve it!



There is nothing better at the end of the day than to unwind...and pamper yourself!

Relaxation is key after dealing with the daily stresses...life...work...home...kids...spouses...pets!  


Here are a few Homemade Beauty Recipes and some great products to spoil yourself!



How about a Reviving Face Mask?

Yes please!

Here's what you need:

1/3 cup oatmeal
1/3 avocado
1/2 tbsp honey

To make:
1. In a food processor, grind up the oatmeal; move to a small bowl.
2. Puree avocado and honey; mix with oats until combined.
3. Apply a thin layer to your face and neck; let sit for 15 minutes.
4. Cover your face with a warm washcloth for five (5) minutes so that the avocado oil can penetrate the skin; use cloth to gently remove the mask.



Don't forget your hydrating hair salve which leaves your hair soft for up to four (4) weeks!
*for short hair, half this recipe

Here's what you need:

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup olive oil
1 splash apple cider vinegar
1 jar baby food bananas


To make:
1. Mix all ingredients; divide dry hair into four (4) sections.
2. Apply treatment to each section, starting with hair at nape of neck.
3. Cover hair with shower cap for one (1) hour.  Rinse out of hair; wash and condition hair as usual.





Who doesn't need a great Energizing Body Scrub to help brighten and firm dull skin?

Here's what you need:

1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp ground coffee
1/2 cup sugar
5 drops grapefruit essential oil

To make:
1. Mix ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl; transfer to a waterproof container.
2. In the shower, rub scrub on dray areas, then rinse. Leftovers can be stored in the bathroom; the mixture will not go bad! (Great to give as a gift too!)
