Homemade Rose Milk Bath recipe from beauty industry entrepreneur, Lisa Price of Carol’s Daughter

1 quart whole milk
1 fifth of vodka
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
5 roses
50 drops rose fragrance oil
Strawberries, sliced and strained of juice (optional)

Directions:
1. Gently pull the petals off the roses, throwing away the center and stem.

2. Toss the petals into a large mixing bowl, saving some for floating in your bath or in a bowl near your bath.

3. Pour in the milk (smoothes the skin), followed by the vodka (tones the skin), then the vanilla extract (an aphrodisiac). Stir.

4. At this point you have the option of including sliced strawberries to add alpha hydroxyl acids (improves skin texture, cleanses pores)

5. Add rose oil fragrance. Be creative if you dare by adding gardenia (uplifting), honey (attracts and retains moisture) or sandalwood (calming aphrodisiac, aids in meditation).

6. Close the bathroom door, turn the shower on “hot” and allow bathroom to steam up. Shift water to bathtub nozzle, reducing temperature to warm so as not to dry out the skin.

7. Slowly pour the rose mixture into the bath, swirling the ingredients in the water with your hand.

8. Sprinkle rose petals atop the water, stick your big toe in the water to test the temperature, adjust the water as necessary. Slide in!

Product Review- Carol Daughter Loc Butter

Many of you that know me personally, know that I constantly complain about my curly, sometimes frizzy locs. Usually after I re twist my hair looks frizzy after 3 -4 days. I heard about Carols Daughter Loc butter ( http://www.carolsdaughter.com/). I must admit the $15 price tag was a little to steep for my purse. I’d asked many loc wearers about the product they used and to my amazement none of them mentioned Carols Daughter. I cam upon the Carols Daughter store while I was in Jersey City, NJ and the sales person was doing her job that day! She sold me the loc butter, Marguerite magic for my daughter and gave me several samples of the bath oil and body butter. I had the loc butter 2 weeks before I used it- ok the day is here.. I washed my hair as usual, sat down and started to re twist.. I was initially surprised at the light feeling of loc butter. I wasn’t greasy, but provided the right amount of oil. I re twisted all my loc’s, then took the loc and twisted them into bandu knots for a wavy/curly effect. After I my hair dried I un twisted the knots, and I had a beautiful head of wavy loc’s. I styled them as usual ( the front braided back, and the back hanging down) it lasted two weeks!!!!! I was shocked. I thought ok, it was a fluke, lets try this again.. Again, I washed my hair and palm twisted my loc’s, sat under a hooded dryer and the result was BEAUTIFUL!!!!… The second time, I didnt want the wavy effect, so I really got a chance to see my length, and my hair dried in 1 hour. When I use gels, and shea butters usually my hair takes + 1.5 hours to dry…

I highly recommend Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter for loc/natural hair. I thought long and hard about purchasing the product, because I didn’t know anyone who’d personally tried it. I wasn’t thrilled about the $15 price tag- a little goes a long way, I still have practically a whole jar and I’ve used it twice. There’s no residue build up. The product is light, yet functional. Also, I LOVE the aroma!!! Originally, this was another concern. I had no idea what the product would smell like. Carol’s Daughter did not disappoint! I will definitely purchase it again!
