Backyard BEAUTY

Splurge on a spa day and save some cash in the process by concocting salon-quality treatments from your garden produce.
IRINA BURAKOVA/SHUTTERSTOCK

On a visit to a family-friendly resort, my preschool daughter became giddy over the prospect of some pampering time in the “Kid Spa,” a posh area outfitted with fluffy pink robes and sweet-smelling beauty treatments. Unfortunately, when we saw the spa’s price list ($50 to paint her nails!), we had to temporarily shelve our visions of a mother/daughter spa day.

But my little girl’s crestfallen face forced me to think creatively. I realized that we had many of the ingredients for resort-quality spa treatments in our own garden. Once home, we invited over some friends and mixed, muddled and chopped garden offerings into a memorable (and affordable) spa day.

The next time you’re discouraged by expensive spa prices, take a stroll through your garden and use your backyard bounty to create the freshest spa treatments you’ve ever experienced. The garden-fresh ingredients and lack of preservatives means these beauty treatments don’t have a long shelf life: Most should be refrigerated and used within one week.
