Grow Your Own Spa

You do everything right.  Pot fresh herbs every season to use in your kitchen.  You place those garden planters next to the kitchen door so that you can get to them easily, or place the decorative pots on the patio so the fragrance can swarm your guests as they relax.  

One thing you have noticed is that the potted herbs are getting overgrown cause you can't use them fast enough.  So you think of clever ways to dry, or freeze them so you have them all year long but there is still an over abundance.  You start giving them to neighbors and friends but even that doesn't help.

Well, here is another suggestion.  Create your own spa goodies.  Try these ideas and see if you love them as much as we think you will. With the holidays coming we think these make wonderful homemade gifts for loved ones!

 9201

Basil infused olive oil for facial -  Fill a 16 oz mason jar with 2 cups of extra-virgin olive oil.  Add 2 or 3 sprigs each of basil and chamomile. Cover with cheesecloth and let infuse for up to a month.  Use as a moisturizing facial by dabbing 1/4 c max on face.  Remove with a dry cloth.  Yummy!

 9199-Sugar-Scrub-Diy

Herb & Honey Body Scrub - Warm 2 Tbs honey.  Stir in 1 Tbs olive oil.  Add 3 Tbs, salt or sugar.  Add fresh herbs - such as 2 Tsp basil and 2 Tsp mint. Add a few drops of essential oil of your choice.  The smellier the better....hummmmm  Next bath, massage over your body and face, then rinse.  Smooth, Silky, Smelly Good time.

 9200-Rose-Petal-Scrub

Flower Petal Sugar Scrub - Mix 1 c brown sugar with 1/4 c honey and 1/4 c almond oil. Stir in 2 Tsp fresh flower petals or 1 Tsp dried petals.  Try a mix of rose, lavender and calendula for a wonderful experience.
Add a few drops of essential oil of your choice.  Use in bath, massage over body and face, then rinse.

So you now have a choice.  You can use up your own grown herbs and potted flowers and create your own spa experience.  You can make these up for wonderful, personalized gifts or you can spend a small fortune to go to a spa to get the same experience. We think you will make the right choice.  Have fun!!!
