The Best Natural Facial Treatment for Tired or Neglected Skin!
Wash face with 2 T. oatmeal mixed with just enough water to make it moist. Rub oatmeal into face and scrub lightly. Allow it to dry and brush it off lightly with your fingers.
Stir together: 2 T. soft goat cheese or feta; 10 drops seabuckthorn berrybotanical oil; 5 drops purerose essential oil; 5 drops carrot seed essential oil. Spread this blend around your face using upward and outward strokes. Pay special attention to under eye area. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes, then gently brush off any residue. You may rinse with pure water and lightly pat dry, or allow it to dry naturally.
Boil 12 ounces of pure water with 1 T. astragalus root. Simmer for 30 minutes, adding more water if necessary. Strain and add 20 drops lemon, sweet orange, or blood orange essential oil. Place in a spray bottle and spray over face and neck. This toner can be made ahead of time, and will keep for several weeks. It will tighten your skin and diminish wrinkles and sagging, giving skin a youthful appearance.
Repeat this natural facial treatment 2 to 3 times a week. After the first three treatments, you will begin to see and feel a difference in your skin, rather like turning back the clock on the aging process! This is a very simple and time-honored recipe from a grandmother from India who shared it with me. I hope you will love it as much as I do.
