Complexion cleanser: 

An ideal gentle cleanser to remove ingrained grease and grime. It contains several known ingredients which are wonderful for the skin, like lemon oil which is acidic and refreshing, marigold which is an astringent and good for blemished skins, almond which is soft for the complexion.

  • 75 ml water
  • 2 tbsps. Strong infusion of marigold petals
  • ½ tbsp borax
  • 1 tbsp oil of lemon

Method: Grind almonds and squeeze out almond milk. (You can use the coarse grains as the face scrub). Put marigold *infusion in a bowl with borax and let it stand in a pan of hot water till the borax dissolves. Add the almond milk and lemon oil. Whisk well. Cool and then pour into a bottle and shake well. Always shake well before use.

Tangy toner: 

Toners help restore the natural level of acidity and help closing the pores and tightening the skin. This leaves a cool and refreshed look.

  • 2 tbsp witch hazel or mint(pudina) infusion
  • 2 tbsps. Lemon juice.
  • 4 tbsps. Neem, orange peel, lavender *infusion a few drops of your favorite perfume oil

Method : Mix all ingredients in a jug. Pour into a bottle and shake well.

Firming face pack:

Once a week, a pack can be used to condition and tone your skin or to brace it after a facial steam.

  • 2 tbsp. Natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp. Fine oatmeal.

Put the herbs and yoghurt into a bowl and stir in with enough oatmeal. Put the herbs and yoghurt into a bowl and stir in enough oatmeal to make a soft spreadable paste. Apply it on the face, leave it to semi-dry and rinse off.

Rich and nourishing night cream:

A soothing and naturally fragrant cream with moisturizing properties; it helps dry and ageing skins.

  • 3 tbsp. Lanolin
  • 1 tbsp. sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp. almond oil
  • 1 tbsp. lavender oil
Melt lanolin in a small bowl over a pan of warm water. Add lanolin and sunflower oil. Beat well. Then stir in lavender oil. Pour into a small pot and screw on the lid when the cream is cold.

Deep moisturizing body oil

Nothing can make a skin feel greater than using soft dewy, satiny oil, which is quickly absorbed to replenish lost body moisture. Apply this light, fragrant oil after bath.

  • 100 ml. Rose water
  • 1 tbsp borax
  • 2 tbsp. almond oil
  • ½ tbsp. rose oil

Warm the rosewater in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Add the borax and stir until dissolved, then add oil and stir briskly until mixed and store in a bottle. Shake well before use.

    Chemicals leave residues on skin.
    Thats why lipsticks tend to darken lips and nail polish leaves color on nails -other things do others, but maybe not visible.

    I love my essential oils. Lavender is such a wonderful oil. It has so many uses. It is one of the few oils that is safe to use neat on the skin. It will treat swelling and bruising as well. Just massage a little into the bruised area and you'll see a difference over night. I use it neat for deodorant and it helps to cleans the lymph system as well.
