Mason Jar Monday October 6, 2008

I am going to combine today’s Mason Jar Monday with one of the suggestions given in the giveaway entries- Homemade All Natural Beauty Products.

Mason Jars are great for storage, especially of products that need to be kept air tight.

In Fact, Maureen Morlath, Origins’ packaging development manager, decided to use mason jars as packaging for their body scrubs because, “Origins was looking for innovative packaging, especially a sealed jar, and they found it in mason jars. While looking for a unique profile and a way for consumers to mix the product, the design team thought mason jars would be apropos to evoke a preserve and home spa-like feel.”

Today I am posting a recipe for Rose Petal Facial Scrub. Most of the Ingredients are found in your kitchen. The only thing you might need to run out and grab would be white or green clay. If your husband happens to get romantic and buys you some beautiful roses- Here is another great reason to dry the petals and save them. (Side note- dried petals stored in mason jars are also particularly beautiful.) These also make great Christmas gifts!

Rose Petal Facial Scrub

Equal Parts:

Rolled Oats

White or Green Clay

Oil (Almond or Coconut are my Favorites but Olive would work in a pinch)

Mix Oats, Clay and Oil well and add in crushed, dried Rose Petals as a natural exfoliant.

Let me know how you like it!

    What’s it do? Is it a face wash, a lotion, or what? I never understood all that spa stuff ladies like.

  2. Jen Says:

    It’s a facial scrub, so it exfoliates the skin sloughing off dead skin cells. Kind of like a loofah does only a loofah is tough on facial skin so this exfoliates gently.

    where do you get the clay?

    You could buy it here:

    or call your local nutrition store or wild oats/whole foods. Grocery stores or drug stores might carry it- I’m not positive on that though.
