Honey Face Scrub
Honey Face Scrub
Your face needs moisture, just like the rest of your body. Did you know dead skin cells can build up on your face, preventing moisture from breaking through the barrier? You need to exfoliate one or two times a week to prevent this build up from keeping your face dry. No one wants a dry, flakey face! Being able to properly moisturize your face will protect it from free radicals and premature aging. This means that the exfoliation process is very important. We have a very easy Honey Face Scrub recipe that can be made in a few minutes! It gently exfoliates your skin, and doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients. Without further ado, here is the recipe.
What you’ll need
To make this recipe, you simply combine all ingredients in a bowl, until they are well blended. If you choose to add essential oils, we recommend a gentle essential oil such as lavender. Store your face scrub in a small glass or BPA-free plastic jar. It will last you a very long time, and the honey will help to keep it preserved for up to one year.
To use your face scrub, put a quarter size amount in your hands after cleansing your face. Apply in an upward circular motion. Avoid the eye area, as the skin around your eyes is very sensitive. When you are done, use a warm and wet wash cloth and let it sit on your face for several seconds, to loosen the scrub. Then, very gently wipe away. Pat away the excess using the same cloth, and then you are ready to apply your moisturizer! Once you see how your skin looks and feels after using this scrub weekly, you won’t want to go back. Enjoy a fresh and exfoliated face!

DIY Wrinkle Serum
Wrinkles, we all get them eventually! These fine lines can be aggravating, especially when they show up sooner than expected. When this happens, it is caused by premature aging. Premature aging can be caused by several different factors.
Sun damage and prolonged exposure can cause premature aging and wrinkles. To prevent sun damage from causing wrinkles, make sure to apply sunscreen regularly. Chemicals in makeup and other skin care products can cause wrinkles as well. Did you know even the chemicals found in over the counter wrinkle serums can actually cause premature fine lines? A chemical-filled serum may seem like it works, but the effects are only temporary. Over time, these chemicals can cause some serious damage to your epidermis.
A better solution
Natural is always better. There is no question about it! Why use ingredients that can cause short and long term damage to your skin, when you can use effective natural products which nourish and replenish skin? A DIY wrinkle serum is a much better solution than chemicals and store bought creams. Each one of these natural ingredients in our DIY wrinkle serum prevent free radicals and other root causes from aging the skin. They also nourish the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
Hair can become damaged after brushing, dying, bleaching, or being exposed to heat. Even blow-drying your hair can cause damage and split ends. Hair damage is essentially a loss of nutrients in your hair. To replace these lost nutrients, you need a coconut oil hair treatment which will replenish nutrients and moisture to dry, damaged hair. It’s an easy recipe that you can make at home using a handful of natural ingredients.
What You Need
- Pump Lotion Bottles to store your treatment in
- 1 cup Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1/3 cup Raw Shea Butter
- 1.5 cups Almond Oil
- 2 tbsp Vitamin E Oil
- 2 tbsp Jojoba Oil
- 20 drops Lavender Oil or gentle essential oil of your choice
How to Make it
- Using a double boiler, melt together your Virgin Coconut Oil and Raw Shea Butter on low-medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat, and let sit in room temperature for about half an hour.
- Add in your other ingredients, and mix well.
- Let your mixture sit overnight in room temperature, and then whip together in the morning.
- Using a wooden spoon and a funnel, put your ingredients into your pump lotion bottle.
- Replace the cap, and shake well.
To use this wonderful coconut oil hair treatment, shake well and then apply it from the roots to the tips on all of your hair. Put your hair in a shower cap, and let it sit for about two hours. You can even let it sit over night, if you prefer! Rinse your hair out using a gentle shampoo and then let hair dry naturally, or use a hair dryer. Your hair will feel soft, smooth, and revitalized! It will have more shine than ever before, showing off those healthy locks.
You can use your coconut oil hair treatment once per week to maintain healthy hair. Make sure if you bleach your hair or dye it, use this treatment the day after.
