Keeping summer cool all over.
Minty facial astringent
To a small bottle of witch hazel add a tsp of peppermint essential oil and place in the fridge. It will give you a cool refreshing vigor and a wonderful fresh scent. Just apply with a cotton ball to your face as desired
For a revitalizing body spray using the face astringent above make this and place in a spray bottle you get from the travel sample isle.
½ of the bottle full with the witch hazel peppermint combo and ½ distilled water adding 3 drops of lemon verbena essential oil and mix by shaking before each use. Also keep in fridge for a cool all over spray on a hot day.
Beyond this night spray
To make a night time sensual spray that will leave him praying you adorn his bed always try this light and hypnotic recipe
1 spray bottle from the travel isle section (2 oz)
1 tsp absolute vodka
8 drops lavender Essential oil
2 drops orange blossom essential oil
Shake before spraying all over your body and can be sprayed to the sheets and pillow cases as well.
A wonderful summer spin on the Avon sample lit stick-lets. Turn them into a lip balm and have a whole summers worth of silky smoothness while shining through the day.
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa butter solid
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
1 sample lip stick-let or the part you can't get out of your favorite and now gone lipstick, dug out with a toothpick.
Place all the cocoa butter solid, the lip stick-let, and the solid coconut oil in a small microwave safe bowl or small glass jar and mic until just dissolved stir well and pour into a screw top sample travel sized lip balm jar
A refreshing remake of baby oil
Take baby oil and add any essential oil to it for a uniquely personal blend of moisturizer.
For each 1 oz add 5-8 drops of essential oil in any combo or simply use your favorite.
Mine is lemon verbena and orange blossom or lily of the valley and a bit of peppermint.
Although for just a scented blend Coconut fragrance oil and pineapple fragrance oil blended together makes a mouth watering Pina Colada. Or orange essential oil and cream soda makes an inviting orange cream.
Note: Bees might not believe you are not a flower so do not wear outside.
