One of my favorite homemade skin treatments to make is an Avocado Face Mask.  It really relaxes me and helps me to relieve stress, and it just really feels great on my skin.

You’ve probably heard that an avocado face mask is good for your face, but you may not know why. Avocados are high in monounsaturated, which is a good fat. You’ve probably heard of this fat referred to as omega-3 fatty acids. When your create your homemade avocado mask and apply it to your face it will help to hide wrinkles by plumping the skin.

Homemade Avocado Face MaskNot only does a homemade avocado mask plump your skin, but it also moisturizes your skin with the natural oils from the avocado. The vitamin E and vitamin C within the avocado are also very healthy for your skin.

So, now that we’ve both established how good an avocado face mask can be for you, I think we can also both agree that getting an avocado face mask at your local spa is SUPER DUPER EXPENSIVE. This is why I opt to my my own avocado masks at home. They’re simple and easy to whip up. Here’s what you’ll need for your homemade avocado mask:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 Tbs Water
  • 2 tsp Honey

First, take your avocado and split it. Then remove the pit. Now, chop up the avocado into small pieces and put it into your blender. One its fairly smooth, add the honey and water and blend until creamy. There shouldn’t be any clumps at all. Your homemade avocado mask should be very smooth.

This is just one of dozens and dozens of recipes that you can make.  One of the best things you can do is invest in this product here.  I use it almost every time I make any type of spa product from home.  You can’t go wrong with it at all!

What woman doesn’t love bubble baths? They’re great for relieving stress and relaxing, and they can be very romantic. Luckily, it’s also fairly easy to create your own luxurious bath whether you create homemade bath bombs or you make your own solid bubble bath bars at home. This allows you to customize your bubble bath and save money. Plus, it’s fun!  I know I LOVE making these, and it also just feels so good after a long day of hopping into the tub.

Homemade Bubble Bath

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 3 Cup – Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup – Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Cup – Glycerin Liquid
  • 1 tsp. – Water-Based Soap Colorant
  • 2 Tbs – Fragrance of your Choice

The first thing you must do is make sure to wash your hands very well. You don’t want to be putting dirt or bacteria into your soap as you make it. I also recommend that you wear a pair of thing rubber gloves too when preparing the soap. You don’t want the colorant to dye your skin.

Now, grab a large bowl and mix together all of the dry bubble bath bar ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to do this. Don’t use a kitchen mixer. Make sure you blend everything together well so that there are no lumps.

Next, add your liquid coolant to your bubble bath mixture. Make sure that you don’t use too much dye because you don’t want it to stain your tub!  I usually try to mach the color to the fragrance I’m using. Don’t use a red colorant if you’re using a citrus fragrance.

Now you can add the fragrance. I usually add around 2 Tbs, which is approximately 60 drops from the eye dropper. I think this will depend on how you like your bubble bath to smell. Mix everything together.

You’re now ready to add your homemade bubble bath mixture to a loaf pan. It often takes me two loaf pans here. Let the mixture sit in the loaf pan for about an hour and it should begin to set. Once your bubble bath loaf is firm you can remove it from the pan. Use a sharp knife to cut the loaf. I usually cut them into slices just like I would a pumpkin bread loaf.

After cutting, place the slices on wax paper on cookie sheets. Let them dry overnight and they should harden and cure. Wrap them in cellophane or bag them in plastic baggies. Store them in a cool, dry place. Your homemade bubble bath bars should last you about three months. This is just a beginner recipe and instructions that I put together. If you want to really learn how to make absolutely amazing homemade spa products like solid bubble bath bars, I highly recommend this eBook.

Here is a favorite recipe of mine, and when people use this they just give me so many compliments on the recipe.  It pairs up nicely when you make it with solid bubble bath bars.

There are a number of benefits to making your own homemade whipped body butter. I think the best two benefits of making your own whipped body butter is that it saves money, and you know exactly what’s going into the body butter. Body butter itself generally comes in many forms, including shea body butter, cocoa body butter, aloe body butter and mango body butter.

Whipped Body ButterIf you want to make your own whipped body butter, you need to make sure you have a scale that’s fairly accurate. With most body butter recipes you’ll find that some ingredients are listed by weight (ounces), and others by volume metrics (cups, teaspoons). Below is one of the easiest recipes I’ve found for making easy homemade whipped body butter. Because it’s basic, it also gives you some room to improvise and change anything you want. This recipe requires shea butter, which you can either make or purchase.

Whipped Body Butter Recipe

  • 1.5 Cups of Raw, unrefined Shea Butter
  • 0.5 Cups of Olive Oil
  • 0.5 oz. fragrance of your choice

Start by heating up the Shea butter in a medium sized sauce pan. Once you’ve liquified the Shea butter you can add in the olive oil. Once mixed, take off of the stove and let cool for 30 minutes. Once it starts to thicken, add in your fragrance. The fragrance choice was left open so that you could pick something you prefer.

Now use a hand-held blender to whip your mixture until it appears similar to mousse. This will take about 10 minutes. It helps if your bowl and blender tips are cold (stick them in the freezer for 10 mins prior to use).Once you’ve reached this point you can store your body butter in a container. I have found that I prefer to store my body butter in plastic containers that I buy from the grocery store. This is the easiest. Just make sure the container seals tight.

A great resource that I have used is this book here.  It has tons of great tips and tricks as well as easy recipes for anyone wanting to start making their own spa products.  You can click here to get it now.  It is a great place to get started.

Till next time,
