Things have come for circle for Indie Lee and Beautylish. The beauty buff got her daily fix from the site when it first took off, and after spreading her wings with her own brand of all-natural skincare, she celebrated her launch on the blog Tuesday night with two exclusives: the fan-favorite Coconut Citrus Body Scrub and the Radiant Skin System.

Guests were invited to create bath salts as well as lip and body scrubs, customizing them with their own signature scents derived from natural oils. If you want tot try your hand and crafting your own spa kit so you can radiate from within, check out the recipes below:

Total Lip Service Scrub:
1 tbsp. Raw Cane Sugar
1 tbsp. Honey
1 drop Peppermint Oil or Crushed Mint

Combine sugar and honey in a small bowl before mixing in the oil or crushed mint for a refreshing scent. Use to buff and polish lips for a plush pout.

Luscious Lavender Body Scrub
½ cup Sea Salt
¼ cup Carrier Oil (You can use Apricot Kernel, Jojoba, Avocado, or Sweet Almond Oil)
1-3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
1 tbsp. Dried Lavender Buds

Combine the salt and carrier oil in a bowl until fully incorporated. Mix in the lavender and sprinkle a drop or two of the essential oil, depending on how strong you’d like it. Use for pedicures or all-over exfoliation.

Heaven Sent Bathing Salt
1 cup Sea Salt
1 tsp. Carrier Oil (Try Apricot Kernel, Jojoba, Avocado, or Sweet Almond oil)
5 drops Essential Oil of Choice
Dried Flower Petals of Choice

Combine the salt and carrier oil together with a spoon, fork, or craft stick in a bowl or jar, and break up any chunks by mashing them together. Add the essential oils and mix until you’ve created the perfect scent for bath, adding in a few flower petals for a perfume boost. Use whenever you need to transform your bath into a spa.
