Spa Day at Casa de Mama Clumps!

*skipping Mascara Monday this time around. Reviews will resume Jan 10, 2010*

This is what a Spa Day looks like at Mama Clumps’ house. She wanted to treat my cousins (l-r: Nikki, BriAna and Corey) to an evening of making products that they could use to pamper themselves. First they made homemade hand sanitizers.

What you’ll need to make this:
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1/4 cup of vodka or EverClear alcohol
10 drops of fragrance oil
1 drop of food coloring (optional)

First you mix up everything…

…then you funnel it in a re-usable bottle. Mama Clumps is eco-friendly.

…lastly, name it whatever you want and label it!

Mommy also made soap petals.

Why didn’t I think about giving these away as gifts? Grated soap with a tad bit of water makes a milky consistency in which loose flower (fake) petals can be dipped it. Toss them in a dish and place them in your bathroom. Way better than pump soap, right?

Mommy and Corey also made shea based body butters.

…and lavender bath soaks.

…and body fragrances

And after everyone soaked their feet in the bath soaks they made, I did nails!

Every time I see Mama Clumps whip up goodies so effortlessly, I wonder why I moved out. I mean, seriously…she can make anything!

‘Twas a wonderful post-Christmas gift for us all.

Do you have ‘spa days’? Or make your own products? Next time I head, I’m going to have Mama Clumps help me make a lip balm. And of course I’ll need another dose of my nettle infused jojoba hair oil.

Mama knows best!

    Great idea! It looks like y'all are having fun. For Mascara Mondays, have you considered getting the Sephora mascara sampler ( It contains travel size versions of 10 department store mascaras for less than the price of two of them, perfect for trying out a bunch without having to invest in the full sized version. I'm currently working my way through them, trying to discover which one I like best.

    Good deal for you ladies to get together. Too bad many men would never do such. Or would we?

    Believe it or not, I actually put a pedicure on my Christmas list. But alas, Santa did not bring me one. I guess my feet look grrrrreat!
