Fast Absorbing Body Butter w/ Hibiscus

Summer is here and I don't know about you but I'm in need of some serious moisture!  Winter has left my skin ashy and dull so after finding out mango butter and sesame oil are fast absorbing, it made me think about how great it would be to make an effective body moisturizer that would actually soak in rather then setting on top of the skin.  I decided to make a body butter rather then a body cream in order to make the most effective product.  Since creams contain about 80% water, a body butter … [Read more...]

I LOVE shea butter.  It's in my top 5 DIY ingredient must-haves but I actually don't always end up putting it in a recipe.  I like to use it all on it's own!  Shea butter has so many amazing properties.  Basically, you get a lot of bang for your buck with shea butter.   Shea butter has tons of uses and offers so many benefits for not only the skin but also the hair!

DIY Rosemary Smoothing Body Oil

I just recently did a post on a facial oil, explaining how potent and pure an oil is compared to a lotion.  I probably don't need to mention how incredibly easy it is to prepare an oil for the skin.  It can be as simple as opening a bottle!  But, today we should make something decadent for our loved ones-something that will suit many needs including poor circulation, cellulite and dry skin. I think everyone could use extra circulation.  The more circulation, the healthier the skin.  When … [Read more...]

Homemade Apricot Myrrh Dry Skin Stick!

I'm on a dry skin kick this week!  My skin is dryer than it has ever been.  People who suffer from dry skin also battle with premature aging.  I am at the age that I am trying to slow the aging process down!  As our skin ages, dry skin becomes more common.  Oil production usually slows as we get older.  Oil is what lubricates the skin and allows gravity to not wreak havoc on the skin.  The more you can quench your skin, the less your wrinkles will take center stage!   This lovely recipe has … [Read more...]
