My personal recipe for ORGANIC After Bath Oil
Use organic and good quality ingredients. There is a cost to obtaining the ingredients but well worth the investment. I already use the supplements listed therefore the only additional expense was the oils.
1 C Grapeseed Oil
3 Vitamin A & D Soft Gel Caps
5 Vitamin E Soft Gel Caps
1 Astaxanthin Gel Cap (Anti-oxidant)
1 Co Q-10 Soft Gel Cap
1 1/2 Dropper full Argan Oil
1 1/2 Droppers full Squaline oil
2 Tbs. Castor oil
8 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil – Optional
This recipe can be tweaked to fit your age and your needs. I use Grapeseed Oil because it is fairly light and is skin friendly. Apricot seed oil, Almond Oil etc can also be used for base oil. I do not recommend Olive oil as it goes rancid too quickly. Use your imagination and intuition to create what is just right for you.
Organic Spa Recipe Hair Spray – Flexible Hold
This recipe is used in high end health spas. (No it is not sticky!) 😉 It is NOT a 80’s stiff starchy max hold formula, just a natural comfortable hold and smells yum!
For brunettes use orange and blondes use lemons.
1 whole orange or lemon
2 C distilled water
3 tablespoons of vodka
10 drops of Lavender essential oil or oil of your choice
Cut lemon or orange into sections and boil until the liquid reduces to 1/2 then cool and strain through cheese cloth.
Mix the vodka and essential oil in separate bowl then add to the 1 cup of fruit juice. If you are short on 1 cup of fruit mixture add distilled water until it equals 1 cup.
Pour into spray bottle and refrigerate between uses.
Zero Chemical Hair Styling Gel – Flex Hold Formula
1/4 tsp. natural unflavored gelatin
1/2 Cup hot distilled water

DIY Cucumber Facial Toner
1/3 C Fresh Organic Cucumber Juice Well strained and without visible fibers.

Epsom Salt Hair Volumizer
Dissolve 1 tablespoon epsom salt in enough water to dissolve, appx. 2 tablespoons. Mix with equal amount of non toxic hair conditioner. Leave in 20 minutes before rinsing.
Antioxidant Facial Tomato Scrub
Tomatoes contain beneficial properties for the skin. They are slightly acidic and therefore loosen dead skin cells. Great for your face but can be used all over on the body.
Slice a tomato and dip in organic granulated sugar or Turbinado sugar. Rub on the area you are exfoliating.
Citrus and Sea Salt Sugar Body Scrub
1/2 C Sea Salt ex. Himalayan or – Epsom Salt works too but run in coffee grinder to reduce the size of crystals but do NOT powder.
1/4 C Grape Seed Oil
1/4 C Almond Oil
1 Tablespoon Grated rind from an orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit
Mix and keep in shower. Rub on and to exfoliate and conditions skin without soap. Rinse off, of course!
