Vanilla Beauty DIYs

Sure it goes well in your cake, ice creams and even mocktails, but vanilla is also packed with super properties so much so it would be a great addition to your beauty bouquet. Try these home remedies…

Vanilla Scrub

The active ingredient in vanilla, vanillin, is an antioxidant, which is useful in helping the body repair damage. Stir together 8 cups of sugar with 2 cups of olive oil, don’t mix lest the sugar dissolves. Add 8 drops of vanilla essential oil and pour the mixture into a large container for storage in the fridge. Perfect for exfoliation, the sugar granules remove dead skin cells and allow the goodness of the antioxidants to sink into the skin.

Vanilla Lip Balm

Mixing 2 tbsp petroleum jelly and 1 tbsp beeswax in a microwavable bowl, zap for 5 minutes on high. Add 1 tsp honey and 1 ts. vanilla extract and stir to mix. Pour the mixture into an old lip balm container or even an old mint box – cool and store in the fridge.  Tastes great and leaves your lips feeling supple and soft.

Vanilla Body Wash

Indulge your mind, body and skin with a homemade vanilla body wash. Mix together 1/2 cup sweet almond oil with 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup liquid soap (you can use any body wash) and 1 tbsp vanilla extract. Pour the liquid in a plastic bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Shake gently before use, pour onto loofah and enjoy the great-smelling moisturising foam.
