Many of our products began in Ole's kitchen. Now you can get inspired to create your own. These simple, effective and inexpensive recipes are perfect for creating a spa experience at home.

Ole's Facial Scrub with Eucalyptus

Ingredients

  • 2 oz of powdered brown sugar
  • 2 oz sesame oil
  • 15 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

Directions

Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Transfer into a tupperware container and store in your refrigerator. Use three to four times a week at night.

Benefits

Brown sugar deeply cleanses, tightens pores and improves skin texture. Sesame oil allows the scrub to glide on smoothly and adds hydration. Eucalyptus oil is a natural antiseptic and oxygenates the skin.

Ole's Facial Mist with Rose Hips Tea

Ingredients

  • 3.5 oz of strongly brewed rose hips tea
  • 3.5 oz of strongly brewed chamomile tea
  • 2 oz of aloe vera juice

Directions

Shake the ingredients together until blended and pour into a mister bottle. Use morning and night after cleansing. Mist generously and leave to absorb. Can be misted on top of makeup for a dewy look.

Benefits

This face mist is great as a skin brighter after shaving and before applying moisturizer. It can also be used as a quick pick me up at night before going out, due to the cooling impact from having been stored in the refrigerator. Rose hips contain nature's highest concentration of vitamin C, which strengthens the skins collagen. Chamomile is calming a soothing, while aloe vera is lightly hydrating and eliminates redness from the skin.

Ole's Coffee Bean Body Scrub

Ingredients

  • 150 ml finely ground coffee beans (you can use the left over grind after having made coffee)
  • 150ml finely powdered brown sugar
  • Sesame oil

Directions

Mix the ingredients with enough sesame oil to create a thick, yet soft paste that will allow for an easy application. Moisten your skin and then turn off your showerhead and massage the scrub from your feet upward in long firm circular motions. Rinse thoroughly. Next, apply a thin layer of honey across your entire body. After 5 minutes, rinse the honey off and follow with the application of your favorite body oil or lotion.

Benefits

Both coffee and sugar work to cleanse, sooth and improve skin texture. Sugar is an excellent exfoliator and coffee reduces the appearance of cellulite.

Ole's Honey Nourishment Mask

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp of plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of finely ground oatmeal
  • 1 vitamin A capsule
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil

Directions

Create a smooth paste with the above ingredients. Apply on clean skin and leave on for 20-30 minutes and lie down and relax. This mask can be used once a week.

Benefits

This mask will calm, soothe, nourish and renew the skin.

Ole's Milk and Lemon Skin Polisher

Ingredients

  • Juice from one whole lemon
  • Equal parts whole milk

Directions

Mix ingredients and pour into a small bowl. Soak a flat round complexion sponge in the mixture until moist. Massage the moist sponge into clean skin in gentle, circular motions. Polish the skin like this for 1-2 minutes. Do this 2-3 times a week before bedtime and leave overnight.

Benefits

The lactic acid contained in the milk will remove excess oil and exfoliate, removing dead skin cells that can clog the pores. Milk is also very calming on the skin. The lemon juice will firm, tighten and purify the skin, while gradually fading uneven pigmentation.

Ole's Exfoliating Oatmeal Cleanser

Ingredients

  • 12 heaping Tbs oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup witch hazel
  • 2 heaping Tbs plain yogurt

Directions

Shred the oats in a blender for a few seconds. Stop the blender for a moment, shake the oats from the bottom to the top, and restart for another few seconds. Put the shredded oats in a mixing bowl. Add the witch hazel and yogurt and mix well. Cut six pieces of cheesecloth about seven by eight inches each. Place three pieces on top of one another. Put the oatmeal mix on top of the layered cheesecloth. Make a sachet by tying a string around the cheesecloth (not so tight that the content is squeezed out). Repeat with the rest of the cheesecloth and remaining oatmeal mix. Place the two sachets in a tight container and store in the refrigerator. The oatmeal sachet has the consistency of a soft soap, but it is much purer and soothing than soap.

This cleanser is best used in the shower, where the face can be rinsed more effectively. If the oatmeal sachet is a little hard from the refrigerator, soften it by applying a bit of warm water. The first step is to splash the face with lots of warm water to open the pores. Cleanse by pressing the sachet against the skin. Move the oatmeal sachet over the face, massaging in firm upward and outward circular motions, squeezing gently to release the cleansing extracts. Pay special attention to the nose area where blackheads tend to form. Massage the cleanser into the skin for at least one to two minutes. Rinse well with warm water when finished. Each sachet will last one week used morning and night.

Benefits

The raw oats act as a gentle exfoliant, helping to remove dead surface skin cells. Dirt particles and excess oil are removed through the interaction of the oatmeal, yogurt and witch hazel. Oatmeal is extraordinary in its calming properties.
