Spa-jama Party!

We had such a great turn out at out first Mom’s Night Out — a Spa-jama party! Lots of great finger foods, hand/foot scrub, foot soak, bath salts, and a variety of face masks! If you loved one of the products, or missed the meeting and want to try them out, you can find the recipes below so that you can create your own spa night at home!

 

Hand / Foot Scrub

Ingredients:
1/3 cup virgin Coconut Oil
1/3 cup Coarse Salt
10 – 15 drops Peppermint essential oil

Directions:
1. In a cool room coconut oil will be solid. If necessary, soften it ever so slightly in a small pot over low – medium heat on the stove.  Do not let it melt completely. It should be just soft enough to easily mash with a fork.
2. Combine the softened coconut and salt in a glass bowl or jar. Using a fork, mash the oil and salt until well combined. Add essential oil and stir with the fork until it has been well incorporated.
3. Store your coconut oil foot scrub in a cool dark place. To maintain freshness and hygiene, avoid putting your fingers directly into the scrub. Instead, use a clean spoon to scoop some out as you need it.

Detox Face Mask

Ingredients:
10 tsp Bentonite Clay
10 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
8 drops of Frankincense essential oil
8 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
4 drops of Lavender essential oil

Directions:
1. Mix the bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar together in a bowl. It will foam up and then should form into a paste. If your mixture is too watery, add more bentonite clay. Conversely, if your mixture is too thick, add more apple cider vinegar.
2. Once your bentonite clay has been made into a paste, you’ll need to add essential oils and stir them in really well.
3. Apply the mask to your skin. You’ll want to let it dry for 5-10 minutes if you have delicate skin or 15-20 minutes for normal skin. Because of the bentonite clay, you’ll feel a pulling, tightening, and tingling sensation. You’ll want to remove your the mask by rinsing it off with warm water or a warm, wet washcloth. Your face will have redness due to the deep pore cleansing of the clay, but it will go away within 30 minutes.
