LFB's favorite DIYs - lovefromberlin.net

001: Homemade Almond and Floral Body Scrub (from Lia Griffith) | 002: DIY: Cranberry Coconut Lip Gloss + Cheek Stain (from hello natural) | 003: DIY Lavender Bath Bombs (from A Pumpkin and a Princess)
DIY is a series featuring my favorite DIYs created by me or my favorite DIYers.

Part of conscious living is about self care, and self care includes both fixing our minds and our insides as well as keeping our outsides happy. So what better way to calm the mind and nurture the body with natural homemade pamper products? Besides, I don’t know about you but there is something about the colder weather that makes me want to spend most week nights and Sunday nights having a quiet evening with netflix or a relaxing bath. Check out the above DIYS to create a relaxing bath, scrub away old skin and add some rosiness to those lips and cheeks. I promise you’ll be feeling like a new women in no time.

    These look so fun and easy to make!


    • rae

      RIght? I def. want to try to make some of these soon, especially the bath bombs.

  • Ooo, I love the idea of DIY, but I’m always way too lazy to actually do it, haha. Thank goodness for store bought goodies!

    • rae

      I tend to be the same. I always think they are such good ideas but never get around to actually making them myself. Still it’s the intention that counts?!

  • These look amazing, I would love those bath bombs



    • rae

      Do let me know if you end up making them and how they turn out!

  • Did you look through my internet history? XD Because I swear I’ve been searching for DIY bath bombs this week :D I like natural and diy things so much,so thanks for this! :D

    • rae

      How funny! Glad this post came at a good time!

  • Thanks for sharing! That floral body scrub looks amazing

      No worries, and doesn’t it?!

  • For some reason, today I’ve been searching for ways to make bath bombs because for some odd reason, they don’t sell them. I’ll definitely have to check out how to make those Lavender Bath Bombs!

      How funny, I can’t believe they do not sell them where you are – and yeah I guess a lot of people are looking into bathbombs right now as it’s that season!

  • The floral body scrub looks so good, and ahh, so does the lavender bath bomb! I’ve neve used a bath bomb in my life. Perhaps now’s the time to make my own!

      Hope you get to make them and enjoy them, May!

  • So this is a bit of an epic post! Haha, I adore stuff like this – totally trying the lip gloss and cheek stain ASAP!


    • rae

      Do let me know how it turns out!

  • I wouldn’t have the patience to make these products (aside from not owning a bathtub, since the hubby and I prefer to shower), but they sure look gorgeous! Just looking at these photos helps me relax ;-)

    • rae

      Really? I love taking baths, actually that was the selling point on deciding to rent the current flat I am in, lol.

  • That lip gloss is calling my name I always like the idea of making my own lip glosses and I’ve been looking into making my own bath bombs and experimenting with it! I really love this roundup!

    • rae

      Do let me know how it turns out if you make it, Zaire!

  • Beautiful! I would love to DIY more of my products, it’s just so hard to find the time and resources sometimes. Definitely will keep this in mind though!

      So true – which is why I usually do not get around to doing so many DIYs :(

  • Ahhh these look amazing! Nothing is greater than homemade things :D they make such thoughtful, creative presents and I’d love to try giving these a go! xx

      Loved the photos too, thanks Christina!

  • I really want to try out that body scrub actually; adding it to my list! I’ve been all about almond scented washes and soaps lately but it’s surprisingly harder to find than I thought. Whomp.


    • rae

      Oh do let me know how it turns out if you end up making the body scrub, Jen!

  • This is such a pretty post hun, all of those look so beautiful – the photography is gorgeous too!

  • Monique | WritingMonique

    This is a lovely post! The scrub looks incredible, definitely wanna try that one!


    • rae

      I know, me too!

  • I love the lip gloss and cheek stain! Thanks for sharing :)

    Pop over to my blog!


    • rae

      No worries, Sarah!

  • ah yes! i used a lemon, olive oil, sugar and raw honey facial mask for the past two summers and they have actually helped brighten some acne scars :) i also have tried apple cider vinegar toner and scalp cleaner as well. that was a bit harder since i had to get used to the smell. so great what we can make with products found right in our own home.

    • rae

      Oh nice! Yes lemon is supposed to brighten, I have heard. And interesting, I really could use a scalp cleaner, so I might just have to try that! Thanks for the tip, Jane!

  • OMG yes I am all about this! Conscious living is so important and I think people forget about it when it comes to beauty sometimes! Love this post and your blog!

    • rae

      So true! I really try to push conscious living in every aspect of life, as it is really the best way to live responsibly but still enjoy life! Thank you so much, Annie!
