When we eat our foods, our skin is very often the last organ to receive the nutrients. Other organs are seen as more critically in need of the nourishment.
Knowing that fact, it makes sense to nourish our skin directly.
I truly feel we can obtain unbelievable nourishment from a rainbow of foods.
I am going to list a few recipes for different skin enhancing formulas.
Frankorose skin oil-50ml
Sesame seed oil – 20ml Carrot oil- 3ml Frankincense Oil-2ml
Apricot kernal oil– 10ml Rose hip oil– 3ml
Extra virgin Olive oil 10ml Lavender oil– 2ml
Fill a 50ml glass bottle with this. This oil is so nourishing.
Carrot oil provides skin with Beta Carotene, Vitamin E. Frankincense oil is rejuvenating for skin, particularly sensitive/older skin. Rose hip oil also evens skin tone, is rich in Essential fatty acids. Lavender oil calms sensitive skin.
Rosehip and Lavender toner
Soak Rose petals in filtered water for up to 3-5 days in airtight container(glass if possible).
Pour water from this into a 100ml glass bottle. Also put 5-10 drops of Lavender oil in bottle.
This produces a fantastic toner you can use on newly washed skin prior to application of Oil.
Green clay and herbal skin purifier
Mix 1 teaspoon of Green clay and 1 teaspoon of dried burdock root(optional)
Add two drops of lemon juice and enough filtered water to make your desired consistency.
Apply to clean skin and keep on skin for 10-20 mins.
Unveil clean, clear and purified skin.
Soothing eye gel
2 teaspoons peeled and grated cucumber
1 teaspoon honey
If you combine ingredients to form a paste.
Apply over and around closed eyes. Leave for 10 mins and then rinse with cool , filtered water.
These recipes are only examples, you can mix and match ingredients as you so desire.
It is so simple and fulfilling making your own products. I do it all the time and love it.
