This hand cream recipe is easy, however some of the ingredients are not found in the average pantry.
The orange and vanilla scent is gorgeous and it goes with this hand wash, however feel free to use your favourite essentials oils 😊
a sterilised jar to fit 55 ml or 1.9 oz
12 g/0.4 oz cocoa butter 🍫
12g/0.4 oz beeswax or coconut oil 🥥
30ml/1 fl oz almond, grape seed or calendula oil 🍇
10 drops of carrot or borage seed oil 🥕
10 drops orange or tangerine and vanilla essential oils (optional) 🍊
➡️ Melt cocoa butter and beeswax in a bain marie (a bowl sitting in a saucepan of water), stir well, turn off the heat and add the almond, carrot or borage and essential oils.

Calendula is known to help heal your skin, so it makes for the perfect beauty treatment! 💁🏼♀️
🔸️2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt
🔸️1 Teaspoon calendula powder
➡️Mix the yogurt and calendula together until well combined
➡️ Apply the mixture to your clean face and neck area if desired
➡️ Let the mask ‘set’ for 15 minutes before washing off.
Depending on what essential oils you have on hand, it can be any scent. Eucalyptus, orange, rosemary 😍
🔸️ grapeseed oil 🍇
🔸️essential oil 👃
🔸️fresh lavender for wrapping
Good ratio is 3:1, so depending on the size jar you are using you could use 1 cup sugar to 1/3 cup oil, 3 cups sugar to 1 cup oil.
➡️ 1. Go ahead and mix your oil and sugar in a bowl together, and stir thoroughly.
➡️ 2.Once it becomes a slushy consistency, add your drops of essential oil. For a small container best to use 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup oil, and about 8-10 drops of essential oil. You’ll know it’s the right amount when you mix it through and you can smell the fragrance nice and strong 😍
➡️ 3. Next take your fresh lavender and wrap twine around the bottom and then secure with a bow. You can label the top as well if you choose 🤗
What you will Need:
🔸️3 1/2 Tablespoon organic Shea butter
🔸️2 Tablespoons Jojoba oil
🔸️3 Tablespoons of Aloe Leaf Juice
🔸️1 Teaspoon vitamin E oil
🔸️4 drops lavender essential oil of choice
🔸️A pint sized mason jar
🔸️A small glass jar to store your lotion
➡️Add the Shea butter and Jojoba oil to a pint sized mason jar
➡️Place a saucepan on the stove and add a cup of water to it-turn on the heat to medium high
➡️Place the mason jar in the saucepan and stir-slowly melting the Shea butter with the jojoba oil.
➡️Once the Shea butter and jojoba oil is completely melted add the aloe juice to the mason jar-(the aloe should be luke warm)
➡️With a hand held immersion blender or food processor -whip the product for at least 5 minutes
➡️Add in your essential oil and pour into a small jar
➡️Store you face lotion in a sealed glass far and use within 3 months
* This WILL NOT work if you swap out the jojoba oil for another type of oil. Jojoba is actually a wax and it is what helps emulsify the aloe water into the rest of the ingredients. Make sure you whip the product well so that the liquid completely blends into jojoba and shea butter.

Oil cleansing can be a total game changer for just about any skin type and condition 😉. Although it may seem counterintuitive to wash your face with oil, it’s actually brilliant. An oil cleanser dissolves excess oils on your skin, as well as makeup and sunblock—without any of the surfactants, harsh ingredients, or necessary preservatives in foaming cleansers. This means that your face gets a super-deep clean, without any “stripping,” or disruption of the skin’s natural microbiome 🤗
After switching to oil cleansing you’ll notice clearer, softer & brighter skin 🤩
If you’re wearing heavier makeup, start by removing that. This regular oil-cleansing routine is enough to remove light makeup, though 😊
Rinse face with warm water, then pat dry.
Dispense a nickel- to quarter-size amount of oil into palm, spread over both hands, and apply to full face and neck ☺
Massage! Take a full minute to work the oil into your skin. This is an opportunity to give your face some love, dissolve some of the tension of the day, and tend to the deeper layers of your skin by increasing circulation of blood and lymph, as you deep clean your pores 😍
Warm washcloth removal. This step is key to oil cleansing working for you. Wring out your washcloth, drape it over your full face, and press the warmth into the skin. Next, remove all of the oil with the washcloth. This may require multiple passes. Be thorough but not rough.
What kind of oil best to use?
The most common kitchen-cabinet recipe usually includes a mixture of castor oil and extra-virgin olive oil. A standard one-to-one ratio is a good starting point, but you can adjust as needed depending on your skin type 😊
🔸️Normal Skin: 1:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil
🔸️Oily Skin: 3:1 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil
🔸️Dry Skin: 1:3 ratio of castor oil to extra-virgin olive oil
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! 🤗

Homemade Face Scrubs for Every Skin Type 🤩
– sugar or salt of your choice 🍚
– oil of your choice 🍶
– fruit or vegetable of your choice 🍒🍓🍅🥑
– air-tight containers
1. Choose your container, and measure your exfoliant so that the container is 3/4 full.
2. Measure out your oil. You’ll want a 2-to-1 ratio. So, twice as much salt or sugar as oil.
3. Combine oil and salt or sugar in a bowl, and stir until just combined.
4. Add in the fruit or vegetable chopped as finely as you can get it, and muddle the mixture together until just combined. You don’t want to mix it too much or the granules will start to dissolve.
5. Decant into your storage container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
