Face Mask = honey + lemon

  • 4 parts honey
  • 1 part lemon juice (fresh is best, remember to remove the seeds!)
  • TIP: honeys accentuate different notes (floral, nutty, sweet) depending on the types of blossoms the bees visited when searching for nectar)

Eye Care = used tea bags

  • take 2 used tea bags per person and place in refrigerator
  • place 1 cooled tea bag over each puffy eye

Foot Scrub = coffee grounds + olive oil + cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup coffee grounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • dash of cinnamon (optional)
  • other options: add a dash of your favorite extract (peppermint, vanilla, orange, rose)

Foot Moisturizer = coconut oil

  • coconut is light and sinks in quickly
  • natural replacement for lotion
  • a little goes a long ways (try a dime sized amount to begin)
