A Face Mask & Scrub Set and a Hair Serum with Ingredients from the Cupboards of Dani and Kelly 11

Today I will tackle a few more of the requests from my much smaller pile of requests for our Quick Gifts from Your Cupboard blog post! Let’s go and check out these easy formulas!

Kelly wrote, “Could you come up with a recipe for me for a leave-in hair conditioner? Or some sort of split end treatment product?”

Kelly’s request is easy to make and I found inspiration from Taylor’s Quick Hair Serum post. I made a slight change to include a few extracts, but left the recipe mostly intact. A few drops of this formula will help your hair behave and feel good. Taylor told me that while this formula feels dreamy on hair, you will see a huge difference with application on a fresh hair cut and hair that is pampered instead of abused with heat or harsh brushing.

62% Cyclomethicone
30% Dimethicone
4% Isopropyl Myristate
2% Coconut Oil
1% Horsetail Grass Extract
1% Chamomile Extract

Dani commented “I would like to make my daughter (26 w/oily skin and some t-zone breakouts) a good face scrub and mask. She has been using a sample scrub you guys sent in one of my packages and loves it. However, if it’s not pre-packaged and sitting in her shower she won’t go to the extra effort (hence all those good “foodie” scrubs won’t work for her – it needs to have shelf life of at least a month)”

I think I have the right formulas for you!

45% French Green Clay
35.25% Water
10% Finely Ground Calendula Petals
7% Avocado Oil
2% Liquid Glycerin
0.5% Liquid Germall Plus (Preservative)
0.25% Essential Oil Blend (Use Geranium, Carrot Seed Oil and Myrrh)

If you don’t have the preservative which will help fight against yeast, mold and bacteria, then you can use the recipe below that your daughter can mix right before she plans on using it.

72.5% French Green Clay
16% Finely Ground Calendula Petals
11% Avocado Oil
0.5% Essential Oil Blend (Use Geranium, Carrot Seed Oil and Myrrh)

She can mix 3 tablespoons of the clay mask mixture with 1.5 tablespoons of water.

Here is the face scrub recipe.

25% Apricot Kernel Oil
20% Sweet Almond Oil
10% French Green Clay
45% Sugar, Fine Bakers style

I hope you enjoy the recipes for today!

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    Would you use the mask and scrub in the same treatment, or one or the other?

      I would use a scrub followed by the mask. I would use these no more than 1-2 times a week to prevent irritation of the face.

    Baker’s sugar was a great suggestion. I made a batch of the face scrub and everyone has loved it thus far!
