Virtual Retreat: Homemade Beauty Products


This post is part of the Virtual Retreat series. If you can’t be there, you can be here!

Making homemade beauty products is often a side addiction to the soap addiction (see how I warn you?). I’m still a relative novice at homemade beauty products, but I’ve been diving in lately and already have a few faithful favorites in my arsenal, including Brown Sugar Scrub.

Chocolate Cream Facial Mask.

Homemade Body Sprays.

And my very favorite, anything to do with beeswax. See all my beeswax recipes here.

At CITR Retreat 2011, CindyP will be leading the homemade beauty products classes, teaching attendees how to mix and match ingredients at home to make lotions and creams, and how to read the ingredient labels on bottles to figure out how to duplicate store-bought products. It’s going to be a hands-on, fun class, and I’ll be sorely tempted to sneak out of the candlemaking class I’m leading to learn more from CindyP myself! Luckily, if you (or I) can’t be in the class, we can learn at home.

Here is a link to CindyP’s recipes and tutorials on her Our Life Simplified site: Homemade Beauty Products.

Get beautiful! We are!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
