DIY Facial and Body Products

One of the very best parts about my job here at Gathered From the Garden is trying out new bath and body recipes. While the following are not recipes that I could use in my products to sell, they still sounded like fun to try. I thought I would share them with you. For more fun bath and body recipes go to 

Fruit Salad Facial 
1 Ripe banana 
1 pineapple ring 
3 strawberries 

Mash the fruit together in a bowl or use a food processor. Take the fruit paste and apply it to your face and allow it to soak in for 20-30mins for a soft, refreshed, revived and cleansed facial. This mix will last 2-3 days in the fridge.

 Apple Hair Rinse 
2 cups of water 
 2 tbs of apple cider 
 1 red apple 

Place all the ingredients into a blender and process, pour the mix into a bottle and apply it to your hair after you shampoo. Allow it to sit a few minutes and then rinse well. Do not apply conditioner. This will give your hair a lovely shine!! 

Monkey Banana Hair Mask 
1 ripe banana 
3 tbs of whole egg mayonaise 
 1 tbs of olive oil 

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and apply to the hair, place a shower cap on and leave for 20-30 min. This hair mask will store for around 1-2 days. Your hair is going to love this Monkey hair mask, the banana soothes your hair and fills it back with potassium and loads of shine. 

Red Wine Sugar Scrub 
5 tbsp raw sugar 
5 tbsp mascavado sugar/ brown sugar 
3-4 tsp honey 
 2 tbsp red wine

 Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl until sugar turns like a sticky paste form. Mixture is ready to use and can be stored in the fridge for 2 days. The measurement above is enough for a one time usage. 

Have you ever tried to make your own facial/body products?
