Natural Beauty

I see you have found the lady's chambers. Here you will find my beauty secrets. Natural recipes for body, skin and hair care. Did you know that alot of the creams you buy contain mineral oil?? The skin doesn't absorb mineral oil, it just covers it. There are so many other oils on the market that are healthier for the skin. One of my personal favorites is apricot kernal oil. It is very nourishing for the skin and also a very light oil.

Below you will find my beauty secrets. I am also going to include an aromatherapy recipe or two. But to find out about aromatherapy you will need to visit my garden labratory.. I hope you will enjoy some of these recipes.

Milk Bath

1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon Sweet Almond oil
A few drops of your favorite
essential oil or blend. (optional)

Put all the ingredients in a jar, seal the jar well with a lid and shake vigorously. Let sit for a day or two.
To use: You will only need 2-3 tablespoons per bath. Add last, after tub is full of water.

Bath Salts

1 cup epsom salts
1/4 cup concentrated sea salts
1 teaspoon sweet almond oil

A few drops of essential oil or blend

Put all the ingredients in a jar, seal the jar well with a lid and shake vigorously. Let sit for a day or two.

Bath Vinegar

i.e.,lavender, roses, rosemary,chamomile
mint leaves, lemongrass.

Mix vinegar and water; then add flowers and place the mixture in a glass bottle with a screw top. Shake bottle and store in a cool dark place for one month (shaking every week). After one month shake one last time; strain out the flowers. Put the bath vinegar into a decorative glass jar.

Moisturizing Cream

1/4 cup cocoa butter
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
1/4 cup olive oil
5 to 6 drops essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a double boiler and warm them until the cocoa butter is completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir until the mixture is cool and stars to gel; then allow it to rest as it finishes setting up. When it's cool, the mixture should be creamy. If it separates, then use a hand mixer n low speed and beat until it's smooth. Store in a decorative container.
