bath and body

5

I’ve gotten a few asks about body scrubs, so here ya go! More tutorials here. And before I get asked again, the “scary witch lady” is not a scary witch lady but the mascot for my bath & body company, Bath Sabbath, which is Heavy Metal themed… He can be a scary witch lady if you ask politely though.

Let me know if you have any questions or I spelled something wrong k thankssssss.

Exoskeletons - natural perfumes unlike anything else.
Reading about dark arts in a library full of leather-bound books, with traces of cigar smoke and heady resins in the air. Performing a ritual deep in the woods, under the full moon. Drawing your circle on the ground after a rainstorm. Smoke, fire, ashes. Earth, moss, roots. Witchcraft in a bottle.

Homemade Herbal Bath Salts | Henry Happened

Unfortunately, I don’t have a bath in my house. Bummer. But my mum and dad have a hugebath at home and so I like to buy/make things to use when I go back for visits. Bath salts are great because they are cheap to make in bulk so you don’t feel guilty for throwing big handfuls in! You can get Epsom, kosher and sea salt at most health food stores and even sometimes at the supermarket (though it will probably be much more expensive). When adding your scents, be careful not to go too overboard as it can make your bath slippery. And if you’re going to add things like lavender, rose petals, etc. it may be wise to scoop them out before you let your bath out so you don’t clog your system! But back to the nice stuff. Lavender is great for calming, as is chamomile. There is a absolutely amazing chart here on different essential oils, their properties, whether they are uplifting, calming, etc, even the best oils to combine with others. Try making some extra jars for gifts and you’ll be popular forever!

The addition of shea butter makes this scrub extra creamy rather than oily or drippy which is one of my pet peeves. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

In addition it also incorporates less costly ingredients for those who are soaping on a budget.

12. Natural Exfoliating Homemade Foot Scrub Recipe - This all natural homemade foot scrub recipe isn’t a mess of slippery oils, but rather a creamy combination of natural shea and cocoa butters and non-greasy argan and sweet almond oils. Fine ground pumice and walnut shell powder lend their supercharged exfoliating properties, while sea salt and tea tree oil lend their healing qualities. Plus there’s a touch of peppermint for a fresh, cool scent to refresh feet and keep them in tip top shape all season long!

While this last project for creating your own easy DIY light bulb aquariums isn’t a homemade bath and body recipe, it is one of my most popular Pinterest pins and it takes very little time to put together. And they make great homes for tiny Japanese Marimo moss balls. Learn how to make them here.
