    Homemade Salt Scrub (from my friend Connie) Without a doubt, one of the best things I ever did for my skin was to start making my own scrubs. The stuff at the store is chock full of stuff that's bad for your skin - all sorts of chemicals and alcohol. Yuck. Do your skin a favor... Go out and buy a mason jar. Add coarse sea salt, olive oil, almond oil, and if you can find it - jojoba oil. Use daily. Love your skin again. I add the olive oil and jojoba oil first to the salt and then add as much almond oil as I need to make it smell great. When you get out of the shower, your skin will be smooth, silky and you shouldn't need lotion. In the summer, you can add a little coconut oil for a tropical smell! ~ Constance :)

olive oil scrub - ideal for all skin types, go easy and scrub light! Use Leonardo Olive oil for this preparation which is ideal for massage as well. You can use sea salt crystals for this as well, to use on rough skin patches like heels, ankles, elbows and knees.

Olive Oil wash for silky hair - A Pinner wrote... i have thin, stringy, oily, weak, flat hair with disgusting, dead ends. No matter how much trimming and special care I give it...it looks awful. I just used this olive oil mask this morning, and my hair feels thick, lucious and silky!! And my natural waves are bounccing beautifully! It really works :)

DIY Exfoliating Facial/Mask--Not for the faint of heart or sensitive of skin. My tough, oily skin loves this. You need: raw honey (not pasteurized), olive oil, plain white sugar, apple cider vinegar. Add a couple of tablespoons of the honey to a tiny bowl, add a teaspoon of the EVOO and a teaspoon of the ACV (not too much liquid or the sugar will dissolve). Mix. Add enough sugar to form a thick paste. Massage gently onto clean skin avoiding the delicate skin around the eyes. You can either rub it around very well and use it as a scrub or you can let it sit for 10 mins or so and use it as a nice mask. Rinse well, wash with gentle cleanser if desired, pat dry, moisturize, go to sleep. Voila--glowy skin that will be more even-toned in the morning. ACV acts as a toner, EVOO moisturizes, sugar scrubs and honey is an antibacterial that gives a wonderful glow.

**scrub for face and hands.- add 1/2C of oats to a food processor. Grind until it's powdery. Add 3/4 C of brown sugar (dark or light is fine). Mix again. Then add 1/2 C of jojoba oil, 1/2 C of sweet almond oil, 1/2 t of vanilla, 1/2 t Vitamin E oil. Mix again

I love using ALMOND oil or JOjoba Oil to cleanse my skin. This is a great write up about how to do it and why. It is all I use now :)

MOISTURIZE dry skin :: two teaspoons of coconut butter and 10 drops of extra virgin olive oil together in a bowl using the back of a spoon. Apply a thin layer anywhere skin feels dry once or twice a week. Use this on my lips, legs, arms, elbows, and hands.
