Give yourself a gift of a home facial!
1) Wash your face with 2 T. oatmeal mixed with just enough water to make it wet. Rub oatmeal into face and scrub lightly. Allow it to dry and brush off residue with your fingers.
2) Blend together: 2 T. goat cheese, soft unsalted butter, or farmer cheese; 10 drops seabuckthorn seed oil; 10 drops rose otto (pure rose oil). Spread this blend around face and neck, using gentle upward and outward strokes. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes then gently brush off any residue.
3) Boil 2 cups of pure water with 1 T. astragalus root. Simmer for 30 minutes. Strain and add 20 drops lemon, sweet orange, or bitter orange essential oils. Place in a spray bottle and spray over entire neck and face. This can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for longer shelf life.
Repeat this facial treatment weekly. Over time, you will see your skin become vibrant and flexible, turning back the clock on the aging process!
This is a variation on a treatment shared with me by a woman from India. If you have ever noticed, many women of India seem to retain beautiful skin throughout old age, and my mentor believes this is the key to maintaining that vibrant skin.
