Salt of the Earth Spa Event

Salt of the Earth 1

I had the opportunity last week to attend the Salt of the Earth spa event. It was so much fun to meet other bloggers and to find out what Salt of the Earth was all about.

Salt of the Earth creates fresh, down-to-earth spa treatments and products for every occasion. They hand mix natural ingredients & 72 trace organic minerals from the Great Salt Lake with essential scents to create bath and body connections, and they manufacture these spa products for luxury resorts and spas such as Stein Eriksen Lodge, Sego Lilly, and The Grand America Hotel, as well as other resorts and spas.

When I first arrived at the event, I headed over to the table where we could choose to mix my own full-size salt scrub, sugar scrub, or body creme.

I chose to make my own salt scrub. There were more than 50 scents to choose from, so it was difficult to decide on just one fragrance, but I decided on the Mango Ginger fragrance. It smells so good!  And this salt scrub will be perfect for my dry feet that I neglected when I was pregnant.

I then headed back where people were eating and mingling. Whole Foods provided the delicious food. I had a chance to try the Caramelized Leek and Smoked Gouda Mac ‘n Cheese, Orange Zest Creme Brulee with Raspberry Sauce, and Cajun Fig Cake with Made in House Ice Cream and Fig Sauce. All of it tasted so good! I just kept going back to try more.

Next, I headed upstairs where estheticians were giving out relaxing hand massages. I chose the White Ginger scent to add to the salt scrub and lotion because I really liked the smell. I exfoliated my hands with a salt scrub, and then an esthetician moisturized my hands with a special lotion. The hand massage was so nice and relaxing! And I loved that my hands were so soft afterwards.

Before I headed out, I was given a swag bag, which included a white robe from IKEA. This was such a fun event with good food and friends. I’m glad that I went and had a great experience, and I look forward to using the delicious smelling Salt of the Earth salt scrub this week.

How to Clean a Curling Iron With a Product You Wouldn’t Think to Use

 How to Clean a Curling Iron How to Clean a Curling Iron Final

My curling iron hasn’t been working as well lately, and obviously from the photos above, you can tell why. Yuck! I can’t believe that I even let my curling iron get that bad. The products I use on my hair have just crusted onto it. I thought about throwing it out and replacing it with a new one, but I decided that I should at least try to clean it first. After doing some research, I came across an unusual cleaning product that you wouldn’t even think to use–Liquid Fabric Softener! I know, I couldn’t believe it either! This is one of the least expensive, but most effective ways to clean a curling iron.

Now, keep in mind that cleaning a curling iron takes elbow grease to get it looking new again. But it will save you money because you won’t have to purchase a new one. Plus, if you clean it regularly, your curling iron will probably last longer. Here’s how I made my curling iron look new again:

1) Heat up the curling iron to where it’s warm, then turn it off.

2) Place liquid fabric softener on a soft cloth, then rub it all over the curling iron.

3) Use a toothbrush and/or your fingernails to scrub the curling iron.
Tip: Only do this for 10-15 minutes. I spent more than 30 minutes working on my curling iron, and wished I would have done the 4th step sooner. I also had to use a flat, hard plastic kitchen scraper that I knew wouldn’t damage my curling iron to help me with some of the difficult areas.

4) Rinse the curling iron with hot water.
By rinsing it with hot water and using a toothbrush, I was able to get those tough spots I’d been working on cleaned more quickly.

Additional Tips: During this process, I had to turn my curling iron on a few times to heat it up so that the crusted areas would come off more easily. Once it was heated up, I even poured a little liquid fabric softener on the curling iron and let it set for a few seconds. I noticed that this also helped the gunk to come off more easily.

Thanks to Studio 5 for this tip.
