1. Hot Oil Treatment

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup boiling water

To make this hot oil treatment for your hair, combine ingredients in a large glass jar (make sure it has a lid!) Vigorously shake the jar until the oil has emulsified and gently massage into hair. Wrap a warm towel around your hair and leave treatment in for about 30 minutes. Shampoo as usual.

2. Face Mask

1 medium banana

Oatmeal

For an exfoliating face mask that can’t be beat, mash a ripe banana and combine with oatmeal. The banana will help soften and soothe your skin while the oatmeal will slough away dead skin cells for a naturally glowing complexion. Gently massage the mask over your face and throat and rinse with lukewarm water.

3. Foot Scrub

Strawberries

2 tablespoons olive oil

Naturally exfoliating, this strawberry foot scrub will help slough away dull, dry skin and leave your feet pedicure-ready. Gently mash the strawberries and olive oil together until it forms a paste. Smooth the mixture all over your feet, leave on for a few moments, and rinse with warm water. Voila! Beautiful feet — naturally!

4. Body Scrub

2 Tbsp. ground oats

2 tsp. brown sugar

2 Tbsp. aloe vera

1 tsp. lemon juice

This naturally exfoliating body scrub is simple to make and will make your skin positively glow. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until you have a paste. Massage over damp skin and rinse with warm water.

5. Skin Toner

Witch Hazel (3 cups)

Dried rose petals (A handful)

Rosemary (about 5 sprigs)

This natural toner helps clarify and cleanse skin of every trace of impurities. Combine all ingredients together and strain. Apply mixture to cleansed face for a radiant complexion.

6. Body Lotion

1 cup chamomile, dried

4 tbsp. honey

1 cup milk

Steep the dried chamomile in milk for about 3 hours. Strain, but make sure to keep the liquid. Combine liquid mixture with honey and blend thoroughly. Use as a body lotion to soften and smooth skin, and refrigerate any unused portion. This natural lotion will keep for about a week in the fridge.

7. Lip Gloss

1 tsp. aloe vera gel

1/2 tsp. coconut oil

1 tsp. petroleum jelly

Forget store-bought lip gloss; this natural version will leave lips smooth, soft and glossy without harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients.
