DIY natural galaxy gel air freshener 

Hello all, this is post #3 on how to make your home smell amazing naturally. I always like to keep it simple so here is a simple quide for a simple DIY.

DIY galaxy gel air freshener – lavender & lemongrass/orange & cinnamon ✨

You’ll need:

  • Water
  • Salt 1tbsp
  • Vege-gel/gelatine
  • Soap dye/food colouring
  • Essentials oils 
  • Fine edible glitter
  • Containers (I used to coffee jars)
  1. Fill your containers with water, add into a measuring jug. 
  2. One sachet of vege-gel is sufficient to set one pint (570 ml) of liquid. Mine measured around 500ml.
  3. Add the vege-gel and salt into the water and stir well with a fork until dissolved.
  4. Heat the liquid until boiling, remove from the heat and work quickly. 
  5. Pour the liquid into the containers, add essential oils, desired colours and stir well.
  6. Sprinkle edible glitter on the top and carefully stir to spread the glitter. 

Some edible glitters are in sugar form, these won’t be of any use as they’ll dissolve. Powdered, fine edible glitter will work fine. I used silver and bronze from Poundland. 

The close ups look so mesmerising. Enjoy. Love always x


DIY pot pourri 

Hello all, yet another post on how to make your home smell amazing, cheaply and cheerfully.

DIY pot pourri 


There are several ways of making pot pourri from scratch, either buy dried flowers on eBay or dry your own, the sky is the limit with what goes in.

Or a quicker way (as seen in the picture) buy a cheap pack of pourri (Tesco £2) and throw in household ingredients, add a few drops of your desired essential oil/s and violà. 

What I used:

  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Bay leaves
  • Star anise
  • Cloves
  • Cardamom seeds

It smells lovely, it fills the room and gives an autumnal feel. Be experimental with different scents – herbs, spices, flowers, essential oils and dried fruits (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit) 

Slice fruit, place them on a lined baking tray, bake them slowly in the oven on a low temperature for 2-3 hours.

Look in charity shops for interesting bowls for the pourri, I used a snack bowl which I had been saving for specifically this.

DIY homemade coffee neutraliser 

Hello all, I’m going to all lengths to make my home smell amazing and I’ll be posting every step! Coffee has a strong, enticing aroma which will make your home smell great, for best results place by a vent.

DIY natural coffee air freshener

  • Coffee grounds
  • Small bag or sock/tights

You can use fresh or used coffee grounds, if used spread on a plate and wait until dry. Add enough grounds to fill the bottom of the sock, tie securely and snip, use ribbon anything to make it look pretty. I used some old jewellery bags, you can find them on eBay for next to nothing.

Homemade natural matte finishing powder

Hello all, I’d like to say thank you to those who have followed and liked my posts. I have yet another secret for all of you…

DIY matte finishing powder

  • Cornflour 1tbsp
  • Baby powder 1tsp
  • Ground cinnamon and ginger

Add the cornflour and baby powder into a pot and mix evenly. Sprinkle in the ground cinnamon and ginger, a little at a time until desired tone. You don’t need to add a lot, you’re simply adding gentle tones.

The cinnamon will add tanned tones and the ginger will add yellow, golden hues (you can also use turmeric which is much darker) You could add highlighter for a shimmer, perfect the upcoming summer months, a bronzed, glowing look.

I made this beautiful DIY today and it really works. Matte finish, evens out complexion and skin tone and it smells divine!

The eco tools brush is a duo, the right end is for blush and the left is for powder. I recommend a good powder brush to distribute it evenly on the face.

DIY bath salts 

DIY Epsom lavender & Himalayan rose bath salts

  • Epsom salt helps tired, aching muscles it’s reviving and energising.
  • Lavender is great for rejuvenation and relaxation, perfect alongside Epsom salt.
  • Himalayan salt is also detoxifying it leaves skin smooth, radiant and healthy.
  • Rose is a natural skin toner so it works perfectly with Himalayan salt for radiant, healthy skin.

I used dried lavender and rose petals. You can also use green tea, cut open a green tea bag and use the leaves.

  • Green tea detoxifies skin, treats and prevents acne, improves psoriasis, firms and balances skin tone and delays skin cell ageing.

Household all natural beauty tips

Household beauty hacks out of this world!

DIY dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is a girls bestfriend, sadly it doesn’t last very long and it isn’t exactly cheap… Cornflour! Yes cornflour, I no longer buy dry shampoo and feel guilty for spending nearly £4 on a bottle. I use a small amount in my hands and rub them together, smooth it into my hair focusing on the roots with my finger tips, I usually repeat around 2-3 times.

DIY translucent powder

Baby powder is the ultimate alternative! I apply it with an angled sponge, under my eyes, above my cheekbones and under to create a sharp edge. Leave for a few moments, maybe do your eyeshadow? Then brush away and violà.

DIY hair serum

Both extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil are great for hair you can use them for hair masks or apply the oil to the ends of your hair for instant repair.
