With Valentine’s Day fast approaching we thought that it would be very appropriate and fun if this week’s tip focused on the art of pampering and relaxation.

Much too often we put so much time and effort into others on VDay and forget about ourselves; which can unfortunately result in fatigue and frustration. This year it is all about YOU!

Don’t get us wrong, we’re not suggesting that you abandon all of your wonderful plans or turn your back on your efforts, but we are encouraging you to remember how special and amazing you are; and since we all forget from time to time, we are providing you with a few DIY beauty recipes to make sure you never forget.

Pamper Yourself Everyday, Not Just on Valentine's Day

To begin your day or night of pampering you’ll need to begin filling your tub with warm water and add 2 cups of whole milk (or 1 cup of full fat powdered milk) and 1/2 – 3/4 cup of honey, use your hand to stir it around a bit, hop into the tub, close your eyes and mentally go where no woman or man has gone before. Adding loads of candles and great music will definitely enhance your journey.

After your amazing soak, you’ll need to follow it up by hydrating your skin with a beautifully scented body oil. The easiest way to go about creating one is to melt 1/8 cup of Shea Butter and combine it with 1/4 cup of Avocado Oil, 1/4 cup of Castor Oil, and 1/4 cup of Almond or Jojoba Oil. After stirring the oils well, add 20 drops of Rose Essential Oil, 20 drops of Jasmine Essential Oil, and 7 – 10 drops of Vanilla Absolute. Shake well and apply to damp skin.

Now that you have the recipe to start the day off right or end the night on a great note enjoy every moment of every day, not just on Valentine’s Day.
