Mountain Rose Herb Organic Products for Kitchen, Home and Bath!

Mountain Rose Herbs is quickly becoming my favorite place for easy, organic, and resourceful skin recipes I can make at home.  They have everything I need to make bath bombs, massage oils, body scrubs, bath salts and much more to pamper my winter blues. The best part is their products are all natural and organic, while promoting sustainability and luxury!  Check out their products for cooking and home care too!  Here are a couple recipes to share, one for winter dry skin and the other to make for Valentine gifts...its going to be a good day! 
Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub

A sweet smelling body scrub which will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
1/2 cup + 3 TBSP organic Sunflower oil
1/2 tsp organic Vanilla flavoring extract

Blend sugars together in a bowl, add oil and vanilla extract, and mix well. Package in jars, and enjoy!

Rose & Geranium Bath Bombs

Enjoy taking a bath with these fun and fizzy aromatic bath bombs.
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Epsom Salt
1 TBSP organic Rose Hydrosol or water
1 tsp organic Olive oil
Dried organic Rose petals
20 drops organic Geranium essential oil

Combine dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in Olive Oil and essential oil while stirring to prevent fizzing. Slowly spritz with hydrosol while stirring constantly until the mixture begins to clump together. The blend should be just moist enough to hold when pressed together with your hands, be careful not to add too much moisture. Add rose petals, press into molds, and allow to dry 2-3 hours before unmolding. Let bath bombs cure for one week before using them, then store in an airtight container. You can shape your bath bombs by using a melon baller, ice, candy or soap molds, clear plastic two-sided Christmas ornaments, egg cartons, or anything else you have on hand.
