3 Self Care Recipes to Make this Weekend – Bath and Body


Hey everyone!

We’re getting ready to move into a holiday weekend and what is usually considered the unofficial start to summer in the United States! Are you excited? I know I sure am!!!

Long weekends usually mean extra time to craft for me, and I’m hoping you get some extra time to be creative this weekend too. It’s also the perfect opportunity to take a little bit of time to wind down and relax and just enjoy the weekend! To help you get started, I have 3 great self-care recipes you can make this weekend with simple ingredients! Continue reading below for all of the recipes and how to make them!

 

Liquid Lip Gloss

8 mL of vegetable oil of choice (I use a 50/50 mix of jojoba and sweet almond oil for this, but you can choose any oil you like!)

1 mL vegetable glycerine

2 mL agave nectar or honey (to sweeten the gloss up)

2 drops of your favorite essential oil – Some ideas are peppermint, spearmint, sweet orange, and vanilla. Refrain from using citrus oils other than sweet orange if you’re going to be wearing this lip gloss outside, they can cause skin burns when exposed to the sun 😉

10 mL empty roller bottle

Mix vegetable glycerine, vegetable oil, and sweetener in a small bowl or cup until well combined. Empty contents into the empty roller bottle, add your essential oil, cap the roller bottle and gently roll it back and forth in your hands to ensure all ingredients are mixed well, enjoy!

 

Relaxing Bath Salts

4 ounces pink Himalayan salt (if you want, you can also substitute this with 4 ounces of coarse sea salt or Epsom salts)

2 TBSP castile soap (I like to use the lavender-scented, but you can use any that you have on hand)

3 drops Lavender Essential Oil

2 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Empty Jar

Add all ingredients to clean, empty jar, and stir well to make sure all ingredients are mixed together well. Use 1-2 ounces of the mixture in the bath and soak up the relaxation!

Luscious Locks Overnight Hair Treatment

2 tablespoons Castor Oil or vegetable oil of choice

3 drops Lavender Essential Oil

3 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

2 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Empty Glass Bottle

Add all ingredients to an empty glass bottle and shake gently to combine. Apply in hair and on the scalp before bed and let it sit overnight. Wash out in the morning for soft, perfectly moisturized tresses.

After you make one (or more) of these awesome recipes, why not take some time for yourself to relax and pamper yourself a little? After all, you deserve it!

Happy Crafting!
