DIY Lavender Mint Body Scrub


Salt scrubs are a simple and inexpensive way to incorporate herbs and oils into your skin care routine. Salt in itself is a wonderful material to work with – it draws out toxins and negative energy, and fine sea salt makes an excellent exfoliant. This lavender mint salt scrub is perfect for helping you wake up in the morning, after a work out to soothe tired/sore muscles, or in the evening to scrub the day off. If you have sensitive skin, you can also try replacing the salt with sugar, which is less abrasive. Here’s the recipe and instructions —


3/4 C. fine grain sea salt
3 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP honey
2 TBSP dried lavender buds
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil
5 drops rosemary essential oil


Combine your salt, olive oil, and honey in a bowl and mix well.
Measure out your lavender – if you have a mortar and pestle grind it up a bit first to soften it and release more of its fragrance.
Add lavender to the bowl and mix well.
Drop in your essential oils, and mix well.
Spoon the mixture into a jar and cap it until ready for use.

Additional notes:
I don’t recommend using the scrub after shaving, it will sting!
The resulting mixture will be somewhat crumbly – you can add more oil if  you like, just remember that it can make your bath tub/shower floor slippery.
Because lavender is so fragrant, you could make this scrub without essential oils and it will still smell yummy – especially if you grind up the lavender a bit first.
The oil and honey tend to work its way to the bottom of the jar, so I always just set the capped jar upside down when it’s not in use.

This recipe is an excerpt from my zine, DIY Herbal Bath Kit, which you can find here.

DIY Witch’s Brew Bath Soak & Herb Wash

Here is a simple blend of some of my favorite herbs for a bath soak, herb wash, or floor wash. Bathing (including showers) when done with intention, can be a ritual in itself – for purification, grounding, protection, meditation, and dream work, to name a few. Adding herbs to your bathing experience is a wonderful way to set this intention. Here’s an overview of the herbs included in this blend:

Mugwort – lucid dreams, psychic awareness, inner vision, protection *contraindicated during pregnancy*

Lavender – inner calm, peaceful mind, increased awareness, stability, restful sleep

Rosemary – memory, clarity of mind, strength, protection

Juniper berries – good health and energy, purification, protection

Rose petals – love, romance, heart chakra


It smells amazing.

For this particular blend, I find the best times to use it are just before going to bed, or as preparation for sitting meditation or ritual work. Obviously any time that suits you is great. I have found it to be good for dream work, psychic vision, and grounding. If you are feeling particularly toxic by the end of the day, this is a good choice for “cleaning the day off”! And I recommend trying it at least once prior to meditation, see how it affects your experience.

Here is the recipe and instructions:


1/2 C Mugwort
1/2 C Lavender
1/2 C Rosemary
1/4 C Juniper Berries
1/4 C Rose Petals


If you have a mortar and pestle, grind the herbs a bit to release more of their aroma and oils. If not, I recommend at least crushing the juniper berries with the flat side of a knife (similar to crushing garlic). Combine you herbs in a bowl and mix together well. Store in a jar until ready to use – it is enough for 2 baths or one very potent bath!

When you are ready to use your Witch’s Brew, get a large pot of water boiling. As the water heats, prep your blend. You’ll want a large muslin drawstring bag, cheesecloth, or a clean dish towel. Fill the muslin bag with at least 1 cup of the blend, or, if using cheesecloth or dish towel, place it in the center of the cloth and pull up the corners and sides – use string or a rubber band to close. Once your water is boiling, take it off the heat, add your sachet to the water, and cover with a lid. Let steep 10 min. Get your bath water water running, and, once the brew is done steeping, add it along with the sachet to your bath. For extra detoxification, add 4 cups of Epsom salts to your bath as well.

For an herb wash (if you don’t have a bath tub):

Follow the process above, bring the pot of infused water with you to the shower with a bowl or large cup. Take your shower (I recommend exfoliating too) and at the end rinse your body (and hair!) with the brew using your cup or bowl.

For a floor wash: this is a good one for cleaning your house for protection, love, and good energy.

Follow the steeping process above, add brew to your mop water along with your usual cleaner and 1 cup of sea salt.

DIY Rose Face Mist


Mmmm… I love rose. And my favorite extraction of it has to be rose hydrosol (aka rose water). The scent and feel of it is quite etheric, and always uplifts my spirit. So for this reason I’ve chosen to focus my very first DIY article on making a simple, inexpensive rose face mist that I think you will love. It is perfect in the summer time as refreshing way to cool off, and in the winter to hydrate dry skin. What I’m saying is, you can enjoy this year round! Here is the foundational recipe and instructions:

What you’ll need:
4 oz bottle and spray cap
Small funnel – this is helpful for pouring the ingredients into the bottle
Rose hydrosol — 3 oz.
Witch hazel – regular, unscented, or rose scented (if you use regular, you will smell it! I don’t mind the scent but a lot of people don’t like it, so just a heads up) — 1 oz.
Aloe vera gel — 1 tsp
Vitamin E oil — 1/2 tsp

Here’s what you do:
Add your witch hazel, aloe vera, and Vitamin E.
Close the bottle and give it a good shake!
Open bottle and fill to top with rose hydrosol.
Close the bottle, give it another shake, spray on your face, feel like a faery.

Like I said this is foundational, and perfectly wonderful as is. However, if you wanna add a few more things, here’s some ideas:

1/4 tsp of jojoba, olive, grapeseed, avocado, or sesame oil — for extra moisturizing action!

Small gems or marbles — I added a couple little pieces of rose quartz to mine. Water and oil will separate, so this can help mix it all up when you shake the bottle (and you do want to be sure to give it a shake every time before spraying).

A drop of gem or flower essence.

A tbsp of chamomile tea.
