3 Luscious Floral Skin-Care Recipes

1. Flower-Filled Soap

Project originally featured in Willow and Sage Summer 2019

You Will Need:

-Knife/Soap cutter

-Glycerin melt-and-pour soap base

-Glass measuring cup

-Molds: assorted

-Dried flowers & herbs

-Toothpick

To Make:

Cut the glycerin melt-and-pour soap base into 1-inch cubes, and place in a glass measuring cup. Melt the soap base in the microwave for 15-second increments until just melted. Stir to combine throughly. Pour the soap base into assorted molds, filling only halfway. Gently place dried wildflowers and herbs into the molds, and use a toothpick to arrange them as desired. Finish filling the molds with the remaining soap base. Use a toothpick to move the dried elements as needed and to remove any unwanted air bubbles. Let harden for a few hours before removing from the molds.

*Note: Instead of filling the mold all the way to the top after placing the elements, let harden at three-fourths full for 15 minutes before pouring the remaining soap base. This will help keep the elements suspended in the middle of the soap. 

2. Rose Petal Plumping Lip Mask

Project originally featured in Willow and Sage Summer 2019

Exfoliating Sugar Scrub

You Will Need:

-1 tsp. organic sugar, fine

-10-12 drops olive/avocado oil

-Bowl

To Make:

To prepare a quick sugar scrub, mix together fine organic sugar and olive or avocado oil in a bowl. Gently rub the mixture onto your lips, and rinse off.

Rose Petal Lip Mask

You Will Need:

-3 TB. dried rose petals/rose petal powder

-Blender

-Fine-mesh strainer

-1 TB. plain yogurt, unsweetened

-2 TB. raw organic honey, unfiltered

-Bowl: small

-Cayenne pepper (optional)

-Glass jar: small

To Make:

Grind the dried rose petals in a blender until very fine, and strain out larger petal pieces with a fine-mesh strainer. Alternatively, you can use rose petal powder. Combine the yogurt, honey, and ground rose petals in a small bowl, and mix thoroughly. Add a dash of cayenne pepper to plump your lips, if desired. Store the lip mask in a small glass container in the fridge, and use within three days. To use, apply the mask to your lips and let sit for 15-20 minutes while relaxing in a bathtub while lying down. Rinse off, and follow with a natural lip balm to seal in moisture.

*Note: do a patch test before using cayenne pepper (or any spice) on your lips. Do not use cayenne pepper on chapped lips, and do not rub in a product containing cayenne pepper.
