Pumpkin Oatmeal Face Mask Recipe

This is our last week of summer vacation, so we are enjoying every minute.  We've had quite a packed summer with our trips to Kings Island and Kalahari, the drive in movie theater, movie nights at home, swimming, going to the lake, and more.  Last weekend, we made homemade ice cream to cross another item off of our summer bucket list.  The only thing we have left to do from our list is to make tie dye shirts, so hopefully that will get done this week.  

With the start of school and fall comes pumpkin season.  Even if you aren't a fan of pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin everything, your skin can still benefit from this amazing fruit.  I used pureed pumpkin that I had frozen from my garden last year.  You can use organic pureed pumpkin from the store, but your mask will look darker. 


Green Tea Sugar Scrub Recipe

Today, I have a great recipe for you if you want to start experimenting with different ingredients.  This recipe works wonderfully on its own, but you can very easily adapt it to make it your own scrub.  I chose green tea because of its many skin benefits, but you could use a different kind of tea, including herbal teas.  If you don't have loose green tea, you can cut open a bag of green tea to use.

Keep reading for this green tea sugar scrub recipe and the benefits it has for your skin.

I'm not sure what my favorite part of fall is? The crisp air, the changing leaves, or the pumpkin?  I love pumpkins for both decorating and eating. We grow pumpkins every year, and I roast them, puree them, and freeze them to use in my pumpkin recipes like this flourless pumpkin bread. I like this recipe because it doesn't have flour or white sugar, yet it has a great texture and flavor.  I promise you that you won't even miss them to additions with this recipe.

Solid Essential Oil Carrier Oil Stick Recipe

It's no secret that I love using different carrier oils for their unique properties.  After all, they are the topic of my first book, Carrier Oils: A beginner's guide to using over 40 carrier oils in bath and body recipes.  I use carrier oils in my DIY beauty recipes for their skin and hair benefits.  

Carrier oils are so named because they carry things, like essential oils.  If you use essential oil topically, you need to know how to mix essential oils with carrier oils to use them properly.  The problem with using a carrier oil is that they can spill.  They aren't easy to take with you, and they are difficult to apply on the go without making a mess.  The solution?  This solid essential oil carrier stick recipe.
