de-stress by diy

the beginning of a new semester, a long week at work, running children all over the town, & the endless to do list which never seems to be completed: these all spike the start of stress in the body. so with your crazy busy life, why not find some ways to treat yourself to inexpensive at home spa minutes. I'm telling you.. it takes just minutes to make & apply these. Too hard to pass up!

Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg. The mask should feel like a thick paste. After it’s all mixed, apply the mask to your face and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wash it off with warm water, scrubbing softly in a circular motion for exfoliation.

For this Super Sweet Sugar Scrub combine 1 cup of brown sugar with a 1/2 cup of mashed avocado & top it off with 1 cup of olive oil. Use for a hot soak in the tub & you're set!

Just looking at this picture makes me feel relaxed already. This is a honey homemade hair conditioning treatment meant to soothe your hair & your mind (ok maybe I made the last part of that up, but it makes sense that it would! Just try it out..).       Mix a 1/2 cup of honey with a 1/4 cup of olive oil (use 2 tablespoons for normal to oily hair), add 4 drops of rosemary essential oil & 1 teaspoon of Xanthum gum (sold in health stores or on Amazon). You won't regret purchasing these not often heard of supplies!

I hope you get the chance to try some of these out.. or maybe just make time to do them! I promise it will be worth it. If you aren't pleased with the outcome, then I'll even let you give me the rest of your concoctions!

Haha, so thanks for joining me once again & I truly hope to see your beautifully relaxed faces coming into Soel soon. Let's not forget that shopping is a huge help to decreasing stress as well :)

Happy Saturday to you all,
