Homemade Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrub is a must have in my shower! With my son and I both having eczema sugar scrub helps a ton! Sugar scrub is a gentle exfoliator and can use it as often as you want. I like my sugar scrub extra oily for added moisture, so, feel free to adjust this recipe to your liking!

Ingredients:

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Oil (olive oil, avocado oil, or almond oil)

Essential Oils  (or pure vanilla extract)

 

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir until sugar is completely coated in oil. Add more cooking oil if you want it more coated or less if you want it more dry and granulated. I like to add frankincense essential oil and lavender essential oil. Store in a container of your choice and keep in bathroom.

Enjoy!

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

3 TBS Baking Soda

Large pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt

Essential Oils (Clove, Peppermint or your choice)

Xylitol (optional)

 

Instructions:

Use semi soft coconut oil and mix all the ingredients together. You may need to use a fork to mash. Add your essential oils for taste. Xylitol is a sweetener that has great benefits to oral health and can make the tooth cream sweeter. This is more of a cream and less of a paste. Store in container of your choice. 

Enjoy!

Home Made Deodorant

I have been making my own homemade deodorant for a little while now and have played around with some different recipes. If you decide to transition to your own homemade product be aware that you may develop a rash under your armpits. When this happens you are detoxing and the PH is trying to adjust. It does take some time to adjust but some people don't have any issues. I did develop a rash and i found that a bentonite clay mask did the trick! Yes, you want to do a armpit detox if you are struggling with a rash and/or odor. The bentonite clay helps removes toxins and rids body odor. You may have to do this every few days for a week or so or maybe only one time. I also found that coconut oil can be drying to my skin and made my under arms dry. I add a few drops of Vitamin E oil and shea butter to my deodorant to help that problem!

Ingredients:

6 TBS Coconut Oil

1 TBS or more of Shea Butter or Shea Cream (optional)

4 TBS of Baking Soda

4 TBS Arrowroot powder or cornstarch

Vitamin E Oil (Optional)

Essential oils (optional) 

 

Instructions:

Melt Coconut oil in microwave or in a double broiler. If using shea butter or lotion add it to the coconut oil and mix.

Mix baking soda and arrowroot in a bowl and add melted coconut oil. 

Add essential oils and vitamin E oil if you desire. 

Pour into a container of your choice.

It will be a liquid at first. Put in refrigerator for a few hours to harden and then remove. I use a popsicle stick to apply it.

 

Enjoy!

Sauerkraut Potatoes with Quinoa

sauerkraut potatoes.jpg

Are you sauerkraut lover?

The hubsters is not a fan of it but Lee and I love it. This dinner was a win for us all though because the sauerkraut taste was very mild!

Here’s a tip...check the ingredients to your sauerkraut! It should just be the cabbage, water and sea salt. If it has vinegar and other added ingredients steer clear!

Recipe:
6 potatoes cubes
1 onion sliced
1.5 cup sauerkraut (add more if you’re a lover) squeeze the excess liquid from sauerkraut using a paper towel. You don’t want it dripping off the sauerkraut

Grease pan, mix it all together and toss with olive oil. Add seasonings of your choice. I added oregano, salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees F and for 25 minutes.

 

Add quinoa to it if this is your main meal. You can opt out of the quinoa and keep the potatoes and sauerkraut as a side dish!
