I detailed on here before how I use olive oil to wash my face, but that’s not the only kind of beauty treatment that’s lying in wait in your kitchen. Find out how to use coconut oil for everything that ails you, what to do with your leftover coffee grounds, a lip scrub for perfectly soft and luscious lips, deodorant that you keep in the fridge, and more! These kitchen beauty secrets shouldn’t be kept locked up.
My friend Susan Powers made a gorgeous blend of coconut oil, almond oil, and shea butter that is whipped together to keep skin nice and soft. I made this a few months ago to use on my son's chronically cracked dry hands, and it worked wonders. Treat Mom to super silky skin with a jar of this body butter.
As someone who avoids aluminum in my underarm care products, making my own deodorant makes that easy. Just a few simple kitchen ingredients and my favorite essential oils and I have a personalized deodorant to use daily. This is one recipe worth sharing, and who better to share with than Mom?
I am obsessed with this body scrub. I even use it on my face. I make one batch a month, save on both shaving cream (I just rinse the sugar off and shave) and face wash, and I get a mini spa treatment in my shower every morning. What better way to pamper Mom?
Okay, so these aren't your everyday kitchen ingredients, but Brooke's recipe for making kiss gloss is a lovely one, and you do need to head into the kitchen to whip it up. With cocoa butter, shea butter and more, Mom's lips will be silky smooth in no time.
Have you seen those lotion bars? No gloppy mess, just a silky smooth bar to soothe your hands and elbows. Did you know you can make your own? It's true! Plus, a cute little parchment bag and a gift tie will dress this up for Mom in no time.
