Soothing Hand Butter

This rich, creamy Soothing Hand Butter is an absolute delight to massage into hands that could use a bit of pampering. It stars some ultra-creamy emollients and beautiful botanical-infused oils to create a stunning, sumptuous skin treat. I’ve used a slightly unorthodox thickening method to ensure the end product isn’t at all a typical salve or balm—it’s a true butter infused with all kinds of goodness, and I think you’ll love it!

Rose Bentonite Clay Facial Mask

Today’s recipe is a super-crunchy, super simple clay mask starring four lovely, natural ingredients. Fragrant rose hydrosol and moisturizing vegetable glycerin team up with creamy French green clay and powerfully absorbent bentonite to create a rich face mask that leaves your skin feeling tightened, brightened, and refreshed.

Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash

This Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash is all about the bubbles—rich cascades of mango-scented, orangey clouds of lather that make hand washing a treat. Nothing needs to be heated so you can just stir everything together and you’re off to the races. I’ve already made over a kilo of this stuff so I can happily wash my hands with something reminiscent of a daiquiri for the foreseeable future. Awww, yeah.

Soothing Under Eye Gel

Today we’re doing a thing that is long overdue—a Soothing Under Eye Gel! It’s part of our soothing series, and it is lovely. It’s also the first recipe I’m sharing using Aristoflex AVC, a very cool cold-process gelling agent and emulsifier that I’ve been working with for over three years now, but for some reason or another nothing has made it to the blog—until now!

Cacti Q10 Ageless Facial Serum

This Cacti Q10 Anti-Aging Facial Serum features a base of beautiful plant oils spiked with some potent Coenzyme Q10. It’s rich in antioxidants, has rejuvenating properties, and leaves your skin positively glowing. It’s also a rather pretty orange colour, and comes together in a flash. Despite the name, you certainly don’t have to be looking for an anti-aging facial serum to enjoy this DIY—its got something lovely and pampering for almost any skin type!

Mango Mango Shampoo Bar

Today’s recipe is definitely long overdue, but I wanted to make sure it was on point before I shared it—it’s a sulphate free shampoo bar. I started working on this back in January 2018 and have been testing and tweaking ever since. About six weeks ago I decided to include this in the Mango Mango series, so here we have a Mango Mango Shampoo Bar!
