Oh, Honey Honey!


As a nod to bee-keeping school, which starts this coming Saturday, I thought I might share with you a homemade honey bodycare product I recently whipped up. I read somewhere that Catherine Zeta-Jones keeps her skin so supple and plump-looking by slathering it in a honey and sea salt mixture. I figure, if it's good enough for CZ-J, it's good enough for me. Enjoy, and stay moist!
*In a jar with a lid, mix 1c. honey, 1 c. sea salt, and 1/2c. apricot, grapeseed, or sweet almond oil. Stir. Rub onto your face and body in the shower. Let it stay on for about 1-2 minutes, then rinse off. Be careful, as the bottom of the shower will be slippery from the oil. You'll smell like a big honeypot while you're showering!

Rachel, in answer to your question, my skin is divine, and I've enjoyed the smell so much when I'm showering that I'm guilty of having opened my mouth to lick my arm, only to have received a mouthful of salt....so, enjoy this treat on the skin; the mouth, not so much.
