DIY Sea Salt Spray for Beachy Waves
Make a splash! Get sexy beach hair even when you are not at the beach with this simple DIY Sea Salt recipe. Eco-friendly, quick, cost-effective, and easy too! Honestly, I am a lavender girl so I have to include all natural lavender essential oils and I cannot forget Organic argan oil by john masters organics, which is a must-have product for Summer 2015. Grab a small 4 to 8 oz. empty, clean, and preferably glass spritz bottle and follow these three simple steps.

  • Uno.) Use room temperature distilled water and fill the bottle halfway.
  • Dos.) A few drops of argan oil(coconut or olive oil would be a good substitute), 1/2 tbsp of sea salt, 1/2 of a lemon's juice, and a few drops of lavender essential oil into the bottle. If you have fresh ingredients feel free to take fresh lavender buds and peppermint leaves and muddle them together with a mortar and pestle. Be sure to remove most of the big pieces before including them in your spray bottle.
  • Tres.) Fill the bottle to the top with your distilled. Replace the cap and agitate before every use. Do not refrigerate. Discard or renew after a month.

The argan oil will give your locks necessary moisture during these hot and humid summer days. The lemon juice will help to gradually lighten your hair while playing in the sun. The lavender essential oils will keep you feeling relaxed and will also assist in keeping the summer bugs at bay. Finally, the sea salt works to create those textured beauteous waves. I also found some sweet sea salt spray printable tags too! This is a great gift for the girlfriends this summer or perhaps for your "beach babe" bridesmaids.

Catch a wave and embrace your Summer wanderlust. See you next time!


The Best "Bug Off" Spray #DIY

The Best "Bug Off" Spray #DIY
Rosemary, lavender, peppermint, & coconut "Bug Off" Spray!  Sounds like tropical decadence to me, but the bugs abhor all of these previously listed ingredients. Especially peppermint. Peppermint is the most amazing and invasive plant ever. You can cut it and put it in a vase and it will keep on growing! It has been keeping the ants and bugs away in our home since early Spring.

Coconut oil is another truly amazing ingredient. It is known for its moisturizing and antibacterial qualities. I am using it as my carrier oil for my essential oils. Note: you need a carrier oil. You could use jojoba oil, Organic olive oil, or almond oil as a substitute. The coconut oil will solidify at cooler temperatures. That is why I added a pinch of salt and citric acid. I will not be refrigerating this lovely concoction and I wanted to ensure a stable shelf life for the entirety of Summer.

Things you will need:
  • 8 oz. Spray Bottle(clean & chemical-free. I bought mine at our local health food store)
  • Distilled, bottled water, or lavender/aloe witch hazel.
  • 1 tsp citric acid(optional)
  • Pinch of sea salt(optional)
  • 1 oz. coconut oil(catnip oil is a great alternative).
  • Rosemary essential oil 5 drops(cedarwood, tea tree, citronella, and lemongrass essential oils are great alternatives).
  • Peppermint essential oil 5 drops
  • Lavender essential oil 10 drops
The Best "Bug Off" Spray #DIY
Important tip: Shake your bottle prior to every use. The oils and essential oils need to be distributed evenly with agitation to get the full "bug off" benefits. Feel free to use this "Bug Off" concoction as a light moisturizer and boo-boo spray for the kids, but do note that the salt will sting a minor abrasion. I do love a multipurpose product! You are saving so much money by making this yourself. Most of these ingredients you probably already have at home in your cabinet, so really it is just about finding the time to whip it up.

Have a restful and relaxing Memorial Day weekend everyone! Please take the time to reflect on those men, women, and families that have made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. You are never forgotten....always in our hearts.

Kəvən Craft Rituals: Natural Skincare Giveaway
Kəvən Craft Rituals is a rising Brooklyn, NY based natural skincare company! Eco skincare enthusiasts be warned....you are about to fall in love. Erika Fortner, the owner of Kəvən Craft Rituals, has been making herbal creations ever since she was a young tot and I believe all her practice has paid off in great dividends. Kəvən Craft Rituals sent me a mini(0.65 oz.) Crescent oil bar to review. Now, I am normally skeptical of coconut oil based lotion bars, but this one rocks! The highest praise(as always) is, "I would definitely buy this again!"

What do I love about the Crescent oil bar? It has a light woodsy, earthy, floral scent with a touch of spice. All made with an essential oil blend....no fragrance oils here. Also, the texture is incredible. It is NOT easy to melt, which means it lasts a lot longer. And, it is not greasy. Not even during the application process. They also use essential oil combinations that are soothing to the body, mind, and soul. The Crescent oil bar also has essential oils that work to keep the dastardly bugs away, which is a huge plus during this time of the year!

Kəvən Craft Rituals: Natural Skincare Giveaway
Kəvən Craft Rituals oil bars would be great for anyone in a "hands on" profession. We are talking nurses, firefighters, moms, gardeners, construction workers, etc... My hands not only feel moisturized, but protected from the harsh elements that be during the Summer. Legs, feet, even a few dabs to dry patches on my face. I also used the Crescent oil bar for shaving. This oil bar is versatile and perfect for your Summer travels. As always, keep out of hot cars and direct sunlight, but I anticipate that it will travel well!

What other natural skincare wonders does Kəvən Craft Rituals have? Okay, my eager beavers they have many other natural apothecary goodies too! Their libation perfume oils with Organic jojoba oil and their "energy cleansing" match sticks sound crazy-good, but you will have to try them yourself as I have not had the pleasure....yet. Who is ready for a metaphysical Kəvən Craft Rituals giveaway experience? One US winner will receive a mini(0.65 oz) Crescent oil bar.
