DIY Easy Three Ingredient Solid Perfume Tutorial from SIncerely, Kinsey here. For a more detailed recipe and how to mix essential oils for the right scent I posted another solid perfume recipe that you can put in a locket here.
DIY Easy and Inexpensive Bath Salts from Happy Hour Projects here. I’ve been shying away from posting beauty and bath products because some of them require expensive or only available online ingredients. But not this one - even the $1.49 sea salt was from the market. I’m filing this under cheap gifts and holiday gifts. *Tip: if you have sensitive skin or are giving this as a gift, check out the types of essential oils they have. Some are specially made for bath and beauty products.
DIY Diptyque Inspired Candles. Super easy tutorial from a pair & a spare here. If you’d like to make candles here are two other easy ones I’ve posted: DIY Beautiful Teacup candles with pink wax here. DIY Simple Beeswax candles here.
DIY Shoe Sachets or Goodbye to Stinky Shoes. Love this tutorial because I’ve given those really strong horrible smelling plastic ball shaped “sneaker fresheners” as stocking stuffers. These are a good alternative and use cheap baking soda and specific essential oils found everywhere. Tutorial at Small Good Things here: Part I (making simple fabric pouch) Part II (making stuff to go inside).
As many of you may know I used to be a make up artist and esthetician and worked in some of the fanciest spa’s in the Metro Vancouver area. Although I don’t do cosmetology for a living anymore I still love to play around with different products and use the knowledge I learned from working in the industry for myself.
When I worked at one particular day spa we used Kerstin Florian products and when ever I used the Spirulina Mask on a client they always looked AMAZING afterwards.
DIY Solid Perfume Pocket Watch Locket from Mandy Aftel and Design Sponge here. This is a great idea! Design sponge writes:
This DIY solid perfume locket from artisanal perfumer Mandy Aftel is something I can definitely stand behind, though. Mandy only uses pure and natural ingredients to create her perfumes, and this solid scent can be easily applied with no risk of over-dousing.
