I had so much fun with the STMT Signature Spa Kit!
Hello everyone! My boyfriend purchased a Do It Yourself kit for me last week and I have been making some of the Do It Yourself projects in the kit. So far, I have made a shimmer lotion and a roller perfume. I am going to make the salt scrub soon.
What you need: roller perfume bottle, dried flowers, fragrance droppers, essential oil, and stone
The two essential oils that come with the kit are rose and lavender.
Why are essential oils important:
Essential oils rejuvenate your brain. I especially love lavender and rose. Lavender and rose relieves stress and calms me. Different essential oils will have different effects and I will be talking to you about the therapeutic benefits of lavender and rose.
Lavender is a very popular essential oil. I learned about lavender from my mother. In the past she has introduced me to lavender lotions and soaps. They use lavender in spas and beauty salons all of the time. It’s one of the most fragrant essential oils and it also relieves stress. Lavender also has healing qualities and can cure headaches, help fight against cold and flu. Some of the other therapeutic benefits from lavender are that it can act as an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, decongestant, and deodorant.
What more can you want from an essential oil? Lavender can be used as a massage oil or added to a bath. You can also apply drops to a diffuser or your pillow for a relaxing sleep. For our Do It Yourself project, we will be adding lavender to a roller perfume.
Another one of my favorite essential oil is rose because I personally love the scent of rose flowers and the oil has a calming effect on me. Roses are derived from rose plants. Roses are distilled into essential oils. Rose petals are steam distilled and then you extract the oil.
Rose oil can be used to treat anxiety, depression, and digestion issues. Rose oil can also help those with heart and asthma problems. Rose is also very good for your skin.

Here is another Salt Scrub recipe below. I got this one from the Willow and Sage February 2019 digital issue. I purchased it online today and I thought this was a really cool recipe. Here are the screen shots of the recipe. I am also making a video of me reading to you all the recipe and how to make it.

I made the Shimmer Lotion pretty much right after I got the kit and I did not get a video of the process. It was really easy. Today, I made a video about how I made the Shimmer Kit. Here it is below.
