DIY Spa Products

Who doesn't love a great facial? But really, as a busy woman with a full-time job and an even more hectic Mommy schedule, who has the time for the spa? Now you don't have to sacrifice time you don't have!

Here's a few products I plan on whipping up to pamper myself:

Strawberry Foot Scrub

8 - 10 Strawberries
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Sea Salt or Rock Salt

Mix everything in the food processor or mash it by hand. Massage into feet, about 5 minutes, then let it sit for another 5. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite lotion and finish with a clean pair of cotton socks to retain the moisture.

Cucumber Hair Drench

1 Egg
Half Eggshell of Olive Oil
1/4 of a peeled Cucumber

Blend ingredients in food processor until smooth. Spread evenly over your hair and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Coffee Facial Scrub

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup Coffee Beans
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Ground Cloves

Grind coffee, cloves and brown sugar together into a coarse grind. Place into an empty container and add the vanilla and olive oil and mix. Adjust more or less olive oil to make a coarser or smooth scrub. This scrub can be used on your entire body, not just your face!

Avocado Foot & Hand Mask

1/4 - 1/2 Fresh Mashed Avocado
1 Egg Yolk
1 Tsp Honey
1 Tsp Rice Bran
10 Drops Oil of Evening Primrose

Blend ingredients and apply to hands and feet. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse.
