Hair Masks/Body Scrubs💕

These are my personal favorite recipes that I use on a regular basis!

Sugar Body Scrub- Mix a ½ cup of white sugar, ¾ cup of brown sugar, a couple of tablespoons of olive oil (or whatever oil you have in your house, and vanilla extract or essence! Smells great and exfoliates while also moisturizing!!

Salt Scrub- Mix 1 cup of salt with ¼ cup of coconut oil, and add a few drops of essential oil if desired! More abrasive than sugar for people with tougher skin- good for exfoliating feet!

All Purpose hair mask- Mix ½ cup of olive oil (I find it works the best on the widest variety of hair types, my own included) with ¼ cup of honey. Heat and stir until combined, but don’t boil. Pour into a container and let cool until it is warm to the touch. Apply the warm mixture to dry hair and put on a shower cap. Leave for 15-20 minutes, then rinse out. BE CAREFUL, the oil will make your tub/shower VERY SLIPPERY. Use shampoo to get the excess oil out of your hair, and clean the tub or shower so nobody falls!!!

-Liddell’s Royal Sugar Scrub Recipe-
Here’s a wonderful scrub that’s great for self care or a lovely witchy gift that’s perfect for someone who needs a pick-me-up.

- 1 Part Olive oil
- 2-3 Parts Sugar
- 1 Black Tea bag (or 2 tablespoons of a tea of your choice)
- 1 Spoonful of Honey

Combine all of the ingredients in the order listed. Remember to stir well! When you’re done it should be thick like wet sand, but not too watery.
It leaves a wonderful silky feeling after you wash it off. It’s great for feet, hands, and even armpits~! Just be sure to be gentle if you have sensitive skin!

Autumn Purification Scrub

Because Samhain is approaching and with it comes the Wiccan new year for many, now is the perfect time for physical and spiritual cleansing. This spell recipe is tailored to fall-themed ingredients to really get you in the magical October mood.

You will need:
- salt for cleansing yourself of negative energy
- sugar for attracting sweet things
- cinnamon for health, success, love and power
- ground up pinecone (find one, wash it, grind w/ mortar and pestle) for grounding and new beginnings
- orange zest cleansing, purification and luck
- olive or coconut oil to soften the mixture

Combine the ingredients. I tend to do mostly salt and oil, with smaller proportions of the other ingredients. Store in a glass jar. For added power, moon charge it. Use in a bath or shower. Rub counterclockwise over your body while visualizing the baggage of the past few months rubbing off of you and rinsing away. Rub clockwise and picture the positive new things you’d like to draw into your life. Make sure you are gentle especially if you have dry skin because the mixture can be quite abrasive.

DIY Lip Scrub

My daughter and I made this lip scrub today that we came across on Pinterest! This is perfect to use before applying your lip stain or even any of your lip products! Exfoliating your lips helps the lip stain go on much easier and much more evenly!

We did use the Vanilla extract in ours and coconut oil instead of Olive oil because for no other reason except that I just love coconut oil :)


WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

small bowl
1 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP honey
1 tsp olive oil or coconut oil
1 small container (I save my eye cream, pigment etc containers and wash them out)
Optional: Vanilla or peppermint extract
Optional: Food coloring (I did pink - pick a practical color as it may stain lips a little)


DIRECTIONS:

Combine honey & sugar in a small bowl.
Add olive or coconut oil & mix well.
If you want it flavored add in a drop of vanilla or peppermint extract
If you’re feeling creative, add 1-2 drops of food coloring (go light on this or it may stain lips)
Put your scrub into a container.


HOW TO USE:

Before bed, rub a small amount of the scrub onto your lips.
Rinse off with water.
Apply lip balm.
Use twice a week for super soft lips!

Beauty Scrub

This is a little beauty scrub. It’s super simple to make: You use 1 part sugar to 1 part oil (so like ½ cup of sugar to ½ cup of oil). You can fiddle around with this base depending on your skin-type, preference, etc.*

I wanted this one to have magickal properties specifically for beauty and love. 

Base: Sugar and a blend of Coconut and Avocado oil

Scents: Jasmine, Gardenia, and Rose


*Note - Please only use food-grade or essential oils specifically blended for soap/cosmetics. Do not use this if you have sensitive skin, as it is an exfoliating scrub. I added about a tablespoon of crushed oats to make it a little gentler, but it can still be a bit rough on your skin. Also, do not use an exfoliating scrub like this more than once a week. Be sure to wash your face with a gentle soap and warm water. Don’t forget to moisturize!

Citrus Nectarine Body Scrub.

Here’s how it goes down in the Diamond household: I get home after a long day of running around LA; I look in my fridge; I consider what I can slather on my body in the form of a DIY spa treatment. I peruse the wilted kale, the dangling carrots, the tired parsley, and my eyes linger on the bag of bruised fruit I got for pie and jam on Monday at the farmers market.

That? Should I slather my body with that?! Why not?! I hear my inner apothecary mixtress reply—the fruit acids will condition your skin and the pectin will act as an antioxidant!

The textures here are everything: Granular sugar, silky coconut oil, piquant orange zest, and tender nectarine pulp. Together, they’re guaranteed to scrub away the detritus of even the roughest of days.

Enjoy the ultimate summer glow! Recipe here.

Super Simple Sugar Scrub: Made with Wholesome Sweeteners

1 tablespoon of sugar (I used Evaporated Cane Juice Organic Sugar from Wholesome Sweeteners)

about a 1 tablespoon of of cold-pressed olive oil

Mix the sugar and oil together. You just need enough oil to completely combine with the sugar. This will make enough for a one time use on your hands and arms. It is a great, natural exfoliant and brightens up your skin!

So easy to do. Love it!
