Make At Home SPA Recipes
Nothing is more satisfying than being able to make your own spa beauty products at home. There are thriving communities around the World Wide Web that encourage people to make their own beauty products using tried and tested natural ingredients such as honey, aloe vera, hazelnut, and more.
You probably found our page precisely for this reason: you are interested in creating your very own spa products at home. Now, you may be wondering: what is really our motivation for creating spa products instead of just buying them?
I don’t know about you, but my personal reason is quite simple: I believe that manufacturers of spa products and beauty products in general do not have the public’s safety as their number one priority.
There are countless reports and studies that show that the ingredients (primarily the preservatives) being added to commercial beauty products are not safe for the skin, and may cause severe, long-term problems.
Instead of exposing myself to such risks, I have decided to make my own spa recipe items, and I have never looked back. You will be surprised as to how effective natural, DIY recipes can be! We owe it all to Mother Nature and now you too can begin enjoying great spa products at home without worrying about hidden toxic ingredients. Here are some recipes to get you started:
Honey Skin Scrub
Who doesn’t adore a great scrub when they are at the spa? The Honey Skin Scrub is capable of exfoliating and hydrating the skin at the same time. If you want an all-natural scrub that doesn’t take forever to prepare, try this recipe.
For this recipe you will need:
- One US cup of coarse salt or fine salt
- Half a cup of fresh honey
- Half a cup of extra virgin olive oil
- Any fragrant base oil that you like. The scent of the Honey Skin Scrub is completely up to you.
You can also opt for the scentless route if you don’t care much for the scrub’s scent.
To create the scrub, simply combine all of the ingredients in a glass bowl or beaker, and mix well until you have been able to work the honey and oil into the salt.
This might take some time and patience, as salt can sometimes be resistant to mixing. Once the honey and extra virgin olive oil has been worked into one cup of salt, the concoction is ready to be used. Feel free to apply generous amounts of the Honey Skin Scrub to your arms, chest, and even on your face (avoid the eyes of course). Gently scrub your skin and rinse with water.
Natural Citrus Moisturizer
This is a simple and fabulous recipe with a few ingredients:
- One third cup of beeswax
- One third cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
- Any fragrant base oil that you like. The scent of the Citrus Moisturizer is completely up to you. Feel free to use scentless oils if you fancy.
Simply melt beeswax in a hot pan, and combine with your base oil of choice. Pour in freshly squeezed lime juice when the beeswax has been melted. Pour the solution into a glass container, and let it cool for half an hour before using it.
Create Homemade SPA Recipes Quickly and Easily in Your Home
Spa products have proliferated so much on the world market that it’s impossible not to find some in your town or city.
However, the question still remains whether it’s actually practical to keep buying spa products, since more and more chemicals are being added to them every year. There is a high demand for these products, but they still need to preserved for long shelf life.
This means that even the manufacturers of “natural” spa products are adding stuff that isn’t necessarily natural (or even good for the skin). If the thought of these artificial additives horrifies you, then it’s time to try out natural spa recipes that you can easily make at home.
Of course, homemade spa products will have a shorter shelf life because they won’t contain potentially harmful preservatives. But no matter – you can always make more! That’s the great thing about homemade spa products; once you have the basic ingredients at home, you can continue producing just the right amount of moisturizers and toners for daily use.
Here are some natural spa recipes to get you started on your journey to using safe, homemade spa products that your skin will surely love.
Natural Lip Gloss
Don't be shocked... to make this lip gloss you will need fresh beet juice that you can get some by running beets through a juicing machine. Here is what else you need:
- 2 ½ tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of castor oil
- One 1/4 cup of natural beeswax
- Any diluted fragrant oil that you would like to add.
To make the lip gloss, first place the beeswax in a pan and melt using low heat. Once the beeswax has been melted, turn off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients.
Mix using a spatula or any other non-reactive stirrer until a fine, equal consistency is achieved. Add as much beet juice as you want to get the desirable hue. Some people like their natural lip gloss really reddish; if you feel the same, then just add more beet juice to the mixture.
Natural Lip Moisturizer
Tired of lip moisturizers that cost too much? Now you can make your own without breaking the bank! Here is what you will need this fast and easy natural recipe to make at home:
- 4 tablespoons of colorless beeswax
- 4 tablespoons of fragrant oil
- ½ teaspoon of lime oil
- 1 tablespoon of fresh honey
This recipe is very easy to complete – begin by combining the colorless beeswax and four tablespoons of fragrant oil in a pan. Turn up the heat so that the beeswax begins to melt. Stir both ingredients together until they are mixed well.
Turn off the heat, and add the lime oil and fresh honey to the pan. Mix all of the ingredients until a pasty consistency is achieved. Pour the contents of the pan to a clean glass container, and let the mixture cool down and set.
You will need to wait at least thirty minutes for the mixture to set completely. Once the natural lip moisturizer has set and hardened in its glass container, take a small amount and apply to your lips.
You can also use coconut oil as a natural lip moisturizer. Read more about coconut oil here.
