I love to cook. I like to keep it really super simple and I love experimenting with things, feeling into what works with what. I have a knack for creating yummy simple meals that are super nourishing and uncomplicated. I'm always open to recipes suggestions too, hint hint!
I've recently started a new nightly routine of gently cleansing my face with a cleansing beauty balm and a warm face washer. Its a lovely way to finish my day and sets me up for my wind down before bed. Lately I have felt the pull to experiment and play with creating my own beauty products. Its like cooking a gorgeous meal but instead you are cooking up a beautiful concoction for your glorious face, yup it's definitely a super delish cook off!.
If you google homemade 'natural, diy beauty products' you will get a wide variety of recipes. I have singled out a few of my favourite resources and felt to share with you all;
My first foray into handmade beauty products was a success but my favourite recipe so far is this divine "Beauty Balm," from Laura Hoy's delicious website "Essential Oils & You." It was super easy and so nourishing on my skin. Once I have finished this batch, I feel I may play around with some calendula infused almond oil for something a little calmingly different. That's the joy of creating your own products, you can tailor it to your skincare needs and pick what essentials oils you like, to create an array of gorgeous products. Let your creativity soar!

One of the main components of the balm is Sweet Almond Oil. I added my own little twist to the recipe by creating my own rose petal infused oil and using that. It was glorious. If you want to give it a go, you can find the recipe for that here:
So why not have a play and create some gorgeous beauty products of your own and treasure the body you have.
