    - Mixing bowl and spoon

    - Dried Lavender (optional)

     

    Method....

    1. Using your 125ml jar as a measure, fill the jar to 3/4 full with epson salts then  the last 1/4 with pink salt. 

    2. Tip the salts out of the jar and into the bowl and mix. 

    3. Add the essential oils and dried lavender pieces. 

    4. Mix well and fill your jar with the completed salt mix. Top with extra dried lavender.

  • Sugar Free Guilt Free Mojito Recipe

    If you’re looking for a sugar free alternative for a little Mother's Day treat, this one is one of our favourites (we're still trying to get off the sugar after over indulging over Easter!) It is made with vodka instead of rum and rice malt syrup instead of sugar and is absolutely delicious.

    Ingredients…..
    - ½ Lime cut into quarters
    - 6 to 8 fresh mint leaves
    - Crushed ice
    - 1 teaspoon rice malt syrup
    - 1 nip of Lime flavoured vodka (don't have lime flavoured vodka? Try adding 4 drops of pure lime oil to your 750ml bottle of vodka and shake)
    - Lime flavoured sugar free soda water (we like Schweppes)
    - Berries for garnish

    Method…
    1. Place the quarter cut lime pieces and mint leaves in the bottom of a glass.
    2. Crush the lime and mint 5 times with a muddle or the end of a rolling pin.
    3. Add the teaspoon of rice malt syrup and stir.
    4. Fill the glass 2/3 full with crushed ice and top up with soda. Stir gently.
    5. Fill to the top with more soda.
    Feel free to adjust the recipe according to taste. Like things a little sweeter, add a little more syrup. Enjoy a citrus kick, up the lime and mint.
    Makes one glass.

  • Creamy Hand Wash Recipe with Peppermint and Sweet Fennel

    This recipe has so many great factors. It is made from a soap bar and only uses 7 grams in a 300ml bottle! This means that just one bar of soap goes a really long way! If you are washing hands more often than usual coming into winter it's a cost effective solution. The peppermint and sweet fennel have great antibacterial and antiviral properties but you could substitute any other essential oils you may prefer. 

    Ingredients:

    - 7g of finely grated unscented natural soap. 

    - 300ml distilled or filtered water

    - 14 drops of pure peppermint essential oil

    - 6 drops of pure sweet fennel oil

    - 1 x 300ml amber glass hand wash lotion pump bottle. 

    Method:

    - Add the soap and distilled water to a small saucepan. 

    - Heat on low until the soap has dissolved. 

    - Once cooled to lukewarm, add your essential oils and mix. 

    - Allow to set further in the fridge for about 1 hr and then shake and use. 

    ***This recipe may make a thicker or runnier soap mix depending on the type of soap bar used. If your mix is a little runnier that you would like add a little more soap or if it is too thick some more water. ****
