D.i.y Lemony lip scrub

Winters almost here & I'm stoked because I love everything about it, but I really could do without the chapped/cracked lips. Don't even think about cracking a smile, cause they literally will. So rather than buying myself a lip scrub I decided to make it. I love the way organic products feel, perhaps its the fact that I made it at home, but I really do feel a difference than store bought. Not only that but they are so simple to make at home. If you have a kitchen then you'll have the ingredients. 


#1. A small container. 
I used a leftover product container.
#2. 1/4th tsp of Lemon or lime
#3. 3 tsp of white sugar or brown sugar 
#4. 3 tsp Unfiltered/Raw honey
#4. 1/4th tsp olive oil
#5. 15 minutes of your time

Step one: Add your honey and Suga. I used a chopstick to mix the ingredients because seeing as I am a klutz this is the safest alternative for me. In other words no mess. 

Step two: Now add the olive oil and lemon juice. If you find the lip scrub to be a little bit to liquidy, you can always add more sugar. 

When you apply this delicious edible lip scrub you will move your finger in a circular motion for about 1-2 minutes. You could either wipe it off with a damp washcloth or eat it all up. Remember that Keeping this lip scrub in the fridge will make it last longer (about two weeks). There you have it a lip scrub to fight against those nasty chapped lips.

D.I.Y Honey face mask

Lately I've been completely obsessed with natural products, home remedies, and really anything organic. Im that person that has tried everything and saw little or really no results. But since I've changed my face regimen its really improved my crappy skin. When it comes down to face masks this is my go to! Super easy and perfect for those still undergoing puberty (pimples). Seriously, when does it end? Also please, before you try this mask make sure that your skin isn't allergic to honey. 
Alright! Its time to get au-naturel. 


#1. Container for your mask

#2. One teaspoon of Nutmeg

#3. One teaspoon of Cinnamon

#4. Two tablespoon of Unfiltered/Raw honey

Things you should know:
- You can use the face mask 2-3 times a week.
-You get better results when applying on after a shower.
- Wear a shirt you don't care dirtying 

Step one: Pour honey into container

Step two: Add nutmeg and cinnamon

Step three: Stir  all of the ingredients until it has gone from chalky to gooey.
 I personally like using a chopstick for this step. I find that whenever I use a spoon
 I make a bigger mess.

Step four: You dont even have to wait! You can use it this second. Make sure that
 you apply the mask to a clean and patient face because you will be leaving this 
mask on for 30 minutes. I love applying this right before i shower. It saves me time
 having to wash it off over the sink, and then have to clean the sink.


D.I.Y citrus body scrub

I'm so sad to see summer leave. Yet I am jumping with joy that I'm going to be able to wear sweaters, splash in rain puddles, eat 10x more than I already do, and everything else that comes with fall/winter.  This scrub is my way of holding on to summer by a string. 

1. 1 cup of white pure cane sugar
2. 1/2 a cup of coconut oil / olive oil
3. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
4. 1 lemon

1. Place sugar in a bowl along with vanilla, zest 
of one whole lemon, and the juice of half the lemon.
 **Remember to zest first then cut the lemon.

2. Slowly pour in the coconut oil/ olive oil and stir. That
way you can see how liquidy you'll want your scrub. 

3. Place in a container or jar, tie a string with a label and voila!

Now your ready to use it in the shower! I love to scrub it all over my legs, then lather on my shaving cream. You will not believe how clean of a shave you'll get. OH and a helpful tip is to shower 6 mins after you've entered the shower. It prevents ingrown hairs.

The days I feel like sharing I make double the amount. I like to place them in the fridge, that way when a birthday comes along I'm prepared at all times! Did I mention it smells delicious? Im not going to lie, I've had a taste or two. Believe me you'll get curious too.
