Kissably Soft Lips…Are Seconds Away!

Easy, easy recipe for kissably soft lips. Hey, you men out there…this goes for you too!

Two ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
Olive oil and sugar. This recipe can also be made with grapeseed oil, avocado oil, apricot oil, almond oil… As for the sugar, you can use white or brown sugar.

Mix equal amounts and then gently scrub your lips. Next, find someone to test it out on! ;P

I also use this as a facial scrub/body scrub. I will do this about twice a month and usually at night, as it tends to make my face red. (Though the redness doesn’t last long.) I’m out in the sun a lot and even with sun screen, my lifestyle takes a toll on my skin. This scrub is a great way to exfoliate. Same recipe just obviously make more of it. For the body I will make about 1/2 cup of sugar to 1/2 cup of oil.

You gardeners out there and barefoot enthusiasts, try it on your hands and feet.

So let’s run to our kitchen cupboard!  Kissably soft lips are seconds away!

Do you have a remedy for soft lips you wanna share? Please kiss and tell!

Fresh Garlic Marries Beautifully with Olive Oil In the Oven…

Roasted Garlic in olive oil has many uses; not just for food, but that’s for another post.

Making it, is simple.  Eating it, even simpler.  Garlic breath is a possibility, but the health benefits are well worth it.  I use the infused oil and the roasted garlic, in many of the dishes I make, and you will see the recipes in my future posts, but for now, I’m going to tell you how I make it…

I use a ramekin, and fill it with one to two layers of fresh garlic bulbs.  I then fill the dish with olive oil; enough to cover it; sometimes more if I want more infused oil.  I cover it with foil and set it in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Let cool.  I will sometimes leave it in the ramekin and store it in the refrigerator until I need it, or I pour the garlic and oil in a jar, again storing it in the refrigerator. That’s all there is to that.  It’s simple and inexpensive to make, yet adds so much to a dish.  I love dipping freshly baked French bread in it!  ImageImage
