More DIY Bath and Body Recipes!

DIY: Not only is it cheaper, it's cleaner. Why spend loads of money on products with long lists of unbeautiful ingredients you likely can't pronounce? Especially since those chemicals often end up doing the opposite of what you want them to do, drying things up. Get the best ingredients by mixing them yourself. And plus, there's a lot of leeway here to play around with different oil bases and organic essential oils. Consider this recipe as a launch pad into the world of do-it-yourself body oils for a smooth and supple you.


For minor acne flare ups, look to honey for help!
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pure honey

1. Mix together warm water and salt and stir well until salt dissolves. Apply a cotton ball soaked in the solution directly to blemish and maintain pressure with cotton ball for several minutes.
2. To use: Use a cotton swab to dab pure honey on blemish. Leave honey on for 10 minutes and rinse well with warm water. Honey also makes an excellent weekly facial mask; simply spread on your face and leave on for 20 minutes.
