Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar

Today we’re squishing up a creamy off-white Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar, starring velvety white kaolin clay and a gentle surfactant blend that kicks off dense, rich lather. You don’t need any heat or even a mould to make these—just a bowl, a dust mask, and a pair of gloves! We’ll smoosh and squish seven ingredients together, shape that dough as desired, and leave it to age. And that’s it! Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar, here we come.

Nourishing Lip Mask

Today we’re blending up a simple, all-natural, Nourishing Lip Mask. I’ve called it a lip mask, but honestly, it’s a super versatile salve for all kinds of dry, irritated skin. It stars a short and sweet list of rich, soothing emollients to create a gorgeous ointment that’s brilliant for all kinds of things. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Cocoa Massage Bars

I had a lot of fun creating these deceptively simple Cinnamon Cocoa Massage Bars. They’re silky smooth, cocoa and cinnamon-scented body butter bars that liquify readily on the skin, transforming into massage oil. Inspired by a LUSH product, I had a lot of fun experimenting with different ratios and techniques, as well as testing the bars to make sure they transformed into a gorgeous, slippy, long-lasting massage oil. The technique is really important with this DIY, so make sure you’re taking your time and watching the video so you get it right!

Calendula Rose Foaming Cleansing Powder

Today we’re creating an herb-and-clay-based powder-to-foam facial cleanser. It’s a pretty simple concept, and easy to customize and tweak based on what you have on hand. It’s been quite a while since I shared a cleansing powder—it seems I really liked them in 2016/2017, and then forgot about ’em! A recent YouTube comment got me thinking about them again, though, and here we are.

Sweetgrass Hand Lotion

Today we’re whipping up a softly scented Sweetgrass Hand Lotion as a continuation of our sweetgrass series. In keeping with the theme, this creamy lotion is entirely scented by stunning sweetgrass hydrosol, which reminds me of sunshine on dry prairie grass and honey, with notes of cinnamon and apples. This sweet, warm aroma lingers briefly before fading, making this Sweetgrass Hand Lotion a great choice for low-scent environments like offices, as well as those who prefer gently scented products. It’s also lightweight and fast-absorbing, with some great skin goodies focussed on hydrating and moisturizing the skin, and I think you’re going to love it!
