1. Hot Oil Treatment

Hot Oil Treatment

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

To make this hot oil treatment for your hair, combine ingredients in a
large glass jar (make sure it has a lid!) Vigorously shake the jar
until the oil has emulsified and gently massage into hair. Wrap a warm
towel around your hair and leave treatment in for about 30 minutes.
Shampoo as usual.

2. Face Mask

Face Mask

  • 1 medium banana
  • Oatmeal

For an exfoliating face mask that can’t be beat, mash a ripe banana
and combine with oatmeal. The banana will help soften and soothe your
skin while the oatmeal will slough away dead skin cells for a naturally
glowing complexion. Gently massage the mask over your face and throat
and rinse with lukewarm water.

3. Foot Scrub

Foot Scrub

  • Strawberries (about 8)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Naturally exfoliating, this strawberry foot scrub will help slough
away dull, dry skin and leave your feet pedicure-ready. Gently mash the
strawberries and olive oil together until it forms a paste. Smooth the
mixture all over your feet, leave on for a few moments, and rinse with
warm water. Voila! Beautiful feet — naturally!

4. Body Scrub

Body Scrub

  • 2 Tbsp. ground oats
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. aloe vera
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

This naturally exfoliating body scrub is simple to make and will make
your skin positively glow. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing
bowl until you have a paste. Massage over damp skin and rinse with warm
water.

5. Skin Toner

Skin Toner

  • Witch Hazel (3 cups)
  • Dried rose petals (A handful)
  • Rosemary (about 5 sprigs)

This natural toner helps clarify and cleanse skin of every trace of
impurities. Combine all ingredients together and strain. Apply mixture
to cleansed face for a radiant.

6. Body Lotion

Body Lotion

  • 1 cup chamomile, dried
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup milk

Steep the dried chamomile in milk for about 3 hours. Strain, but make
sure to keep the liquid. Combine liquid mixture with honey and blend
thoroughly. Use as a body lotion to soften and smooth skin, and
refrigerate any unused portion. This natural lotion will keep for about a
week in the fridge.

7. Lip Gloss

Lip Gloss

  • 1 tsp. aloe vera gel
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. petroleum jelly

ingredients. Combine all ingredients in a small mixing well and heat in
the microwave for about two minutes. Blend well, and store in an
air-tight container. Cool completely before use.
