Thanks for checking out my blog!

Today, I decided to try making these Lush-inspired White Chocolate Massage Bars (Lotion Bars). These massage bars smell so delicious. I think the Monoi Tiki Tahiti Vanilla Oil is becoming my favorite product to use when making anything now. 😛

So, I got this recipe from beauty guru Pink So Foxy. You can view her video here: Pink So Foxy DIY Lush Massage Bars

Here’s kind of a quick overview of how I made these massage bars (but you can watch the video she made as well). 🙂

Ingredients:

1&1/2 tbsp of beeswax (or 15 grams…)

1 tbsp of cocoa butter

1/2 tbsp of whipped shea butter

1 tbsp of Monoi Tiki Tahiti Vanilla Oil (vanilla infused coconut oil)

1/2 tbsp of kukui nut oil

any kind of mold to make the massage bar

glass container to melt the wax/butter/oils

cacao nibs (optional)

 

Directions:

1) Melt 15 grams of beeswax. I estimated about that much or a little more since I didn’t feel like cutting or grating the beeswax.

2) Add 1 tbsp of cocoa butter.

3) Add 1/2 tbsp whipped shea butter.

4) Add 1 tbsp of the vanilla infused coconut oil.

5) Add 1/2 tbsp of kukui nut oil.

6) Mix and make sure everything is melted and well blended.

7) Add cacao nibs to silicon mold prior to pouring contents (optional). Can use other ingredients like rose petals or coconut too, or leave plain.

8) Pour contents into silicon mold and let massage soap sit for a few hours before removing.

9) Put in fridge overnight in ziplock bag to make sure the massage bars are completely finished. 😀 (Note: This is a recipe for a 2 oz bar).

Not bad for my 1st try! :3 I like that all products used were natural and/or organic. Awesome stuff!!!

Enjoy everyone!

DIY Sugar Cookie Body Scrub

Image

Posted this a few days ago on my Instagram: WushuQT

Found this recipe from beauty guru Pink So Foxy. 

This body scrub has got to be the most delicious smelling body scrub I’ve ever come across! It makes me want to eat sugar cookies. It’s crazy! XD I must say that this recipe is easy to follow. The only downside is getting the Monoi Tiki Tahiti Vanilla Oil is slightly difficult since I don’t know where they sell it in my area, so I have to buy it online. I tried this body scrub the other day and I must say that it does leave my skin smooth. 1 little tip would be don’t scrub too hard when exfoliating, and another tip is a little goes a long way. 🙂

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup monoi oil (vanilla)

2 cups cane sugar

Just mix all the ingredients together & then put it in a container of your choice! I used a glass jar I had around the house.

Maybe with Spring in the air, many of ya’ll will want to try this tasty treat for your body. Enjoy!

My 1st Batch of DIY Natural Honey Chocolate Beeswax Lip Balm

Image

Hello Lovelies!

I’m back with another DIY post!!! 😀 I recently found a few natural lip balm recipes on Youtube & decided to try it out. 

 

Original video where I got this recipe (Youtube user: OnTheCheapTip): http://youtu.be/gEtGtMc2mLQ

 

Ingredients:

1 tbsp of Beeswax (purchased from local Farmer’s Market)

2 tbsp of (Extra Virgin) Olive Oil 

1 tbsp of Honey (used organic one from mom’s friend who owns a bee farm)

2 dropperfuls of Vitamin E (original recipe used inside contents of 2-3 capsules of Vitamin E)

1 & 1/2 tsp of Dark Cocoa Powder (I used an organic one) – This step is optional, but that’s what makes this recipe have chocolate flavor. :3

Few containers to put lip balm in (I used a few old eyeshadow containers that I cleaned & a new contact lens case that I cut in half because it had a cute elephant on it)

Directions:

1) Add the beeswax, olive oil, honey, & vitamin E into a glass container that you can microwave & put it in the microwave for a minute, take it out & stir. I actually only put it in for 40 seconds one time & took it out & stirred cuz it looked like it was going to boil, and the guy said not to let it boil because the honey will get hard. This step is supposed to be done 3x, but I just did it once since it felt pretty hot already & everything was melted.

2) Add the dark cocoa powder into the glass container & mix until the contents are well blended.

3) Pour the contents into your lip balm containers, and put the containers in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

4) Tada!!! Your lip balm(s) are done!!!!!

 

Why use these ingredients?

Beeswax – protectant from Earth’s elements, antibacterial for lips, heal & soften the skin.

Olive Oil – cleanses & moisturizes the skin.

Honey – natural antimicrobial, moisturizes, high in antioxidants, acts as SPF.

Vitamin E- heal & repair skin.

Dark Cocoa Powder – contains Vitamin A, B, D, & E, high in antioxidants & minerals, & it tastes amazing!
