A couple of weeks ago, I made a fantastic purchase. This book its full of wonderful home beauty treatments that leave you feeling fabulous and wont break the bank!

Here are some of my faves:


  • Take 2 large carrots and 2 tablespoons of honey. Cook carrots slowly, then mash or blend in mixer.
  • Mix honey with carrots.
  • Apply gently to the skin when lukewarm and wait for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse off with cool water.
This secret is jam packed with Vitamin A to remove dead skin cells and hydrating elements which condition and smooth the skin.

  • Take 10 to 12 freas cranberries, 1 tablespoon of alomond oil and 1 teaspoon of honey.
  • Place almond oil and honey in a bowl and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Crush the cranberries in a tea strainer over the honey and almond mixture. Pour into an airtight container.
This secret delivers a potent combination of antioxidants , Omega 3, Omega 6, Vitamin E and essential minerals to condition and protect your lips.

  • Take one cup of avocado paste and the yolk of 2 eggs. Beat the egg and mix in the avocado, adding 1-6 table spoons of olive oil.
  • Apply for half an hour then rinse with lukewarm water.
This secret will enrich the hair with proteins, nurturing oils and vitamins A, B5, C, D, E ,and K

This sounds great! These would work better than many store brands. There are a lot of "natural" products out there, but the vitamins etc. are greatly reduced or even ruined the moment you load it up with preservatives. Just be sure to make small batches...or even single use batches so that way you benefit from all the good stuff ;0)
