RECIPE OF THE MONTH | NOVEMBER 2019

Three DIY Beauty Products

For November we thought we’d switch it up a little and share some homemade personal care products! All ingredients are available at Brook Village Grocery.

Enjoy!

This was recommended to me (Schön) at a spa in Toronto by the estheticians working there, so I’m sharing it with you. It also works really well at getting “stuff” off your hands when soap isn’t enough.
