Post Christmas greetings to you all!
Hope you all had a lovely time, ate too much and Santa was kind to you. And that you are making sure you use up all your leftovers 🙂
I thought I would share with you one of my less succesful makes from this Christmas, to give you a giggle….
I decided to be clever and try and make hubby a homemade version of some face salt scrub he got from Lush last year.
So I duly googled, and found a recipe that sounded good, and that I had all the ingredients for, whipped some up and sat back feeling smug.
This is the recipe, if you want to have a go BUT do read to the end of the post for the disclaimer…!
This is what you need:
- 40ml liquid castille soap
- 10ml almond oil
- 80ml sunflower oil
- 10 drops essential oil of your choice
- 250g salt-I used a combination of coarse sea salt, table salt, and epsom salts, but whatever you have is good
This is what you do:
- Mix it all together
It looked ok, but didn’t smell very essential oil-y, but was v.v.easy, and I was really pleased with it.
Until I tried it….
It is uber-oily (why this is surprising given that oil is one of the main ingredients, I am not sure…).
It would probably be quite nice used as a body scrub, but leaves one’s face resembling an oil slick-DOH!!
Hey ho, back to the drawing board….
