In winter our lips often get dry so it’s important to do lip scrubs from time to time! 😊
Today lets make honey & cinnamon scrub! 😀
🔸️ 1/4 cup brown sugar (you can use regular sugar here or even salt but brown sugar is tastier!)
🔸️1 Tbsp. coconut oil (this can be substituted with any sort of oil such as almond, olive, etc.)
🔸️1 Tbsp. raw unfiltered honey (that pretend honey just won’t do)
🔸️1 tsp. cinnamon powder (you can even do ginger powder, nutmeg, or cloves.) …
➡️ Combine ingredients in a small bowl using a wooden spoon, mix everything well.
➡️ Transfer to a small glass jar with a lid.
➡️ To use: Rub a small amount onto your lips in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes.
➡️ Rinse (or you could just lick it off if you really wanted too…😃) off with a wet washcloth and feel the difference!…
This homemade honey balm is the perfect antidote for all your dry-skin woes 😊. Just slather on a little bit in the morning and wave goodbye to dry, cracked, irritated hands. For an added boost, apply before bed, cover with cotton gloves, and let this recipe work magic on your hands overnight.
In addition to its calming and healing properties, here are several other ways honey helps combat dry winter skin:
Honey is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, so it can keep skin bacteria in check and help prevent future infections.
Honey has been directly observed to reduce skin inflammation after being applied to wounds
🔸️ Balances skin pH
🔸️ Natural moisturizer
✔ 1/4 cup coconut oil 🥥
✔ 1/4 cup almond oil
✔ 1/4 cup olive oil
✔ 5 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
✔ 1 tablespoon shea butter
✔ 1-1/2 tablespoons raw honey 🍯
✔ Essential oils of your choice
➡️ Combine everything except for the raw honey and essential oils in a microwave safe bowl.
➡️ Microwave in 30-second increments for 1–2 minutes, until the oils and beeswax have completely melted. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler to melt your oils.
➡️ Place the bowl of melted oils in the freezer for about 2 minutes. When you take it out, the mixture should be solid around the edges but still liquid in the middle.
➡️ Stir for about 15 seconds until the mixture comes together almost like a thick batter.
➡️ Add the honey and essential oils. Stir again.
➡️ Spoon the balm into a lidded glass container, and pop it into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to cool completely.Let the balm solidify before using 😚
Damaged hair. We’ve all been there 🤷🏼♀️. Blow dryers, products, and weather take a toll on our locks, so here’s a mask, which is perfect for repairing and moisturizing damaged hair 🤩
What you’ll need:
1 tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil 🥥
1 tbsp. Organic Raw Honey 🍯
Shower Cap (optional)
Step 1: Mix Ingredients Together
Mix the ingredients together and as an extra step to help your hair follicles open up, slightly heat the mixture up on a stovetop in a small sauce pan. Long or extra damaged hair? Just add a bit more of these ingredients.
Step 2: Apply to Hair
The mask can be applied to dry or wet hair, although we’ve found that it’s easier applied to wet hair. Have a towel around your neck to protect your clothes and section your hair off. Apply generously from top to bottom, focusing on the ends where most damage occurs.
Step 3: Relax for 30-40 Minutes While Mask Soaks In
Wrap your hair in a bun and let the mask soak in for 30-40 minutes. While you wait for the mask to do its magic, flip through a magazine, read a book, or paint your nails to pamper yourself some more.
Step 4: Rinse and Voila! 🤗
Will you try it out?
