Herb/o/logy DIY Diaries

Spa night herb/o/ogy style! Open your kitchen cabinets, put on some spa music and pamper yourself for the evening.

First, let me get on my soap box a minute (get it? Ha!). The health of your skin starts on the inside, with a miraculous substance called water! Our bodies are made up of approximately 60% water. Water is the most abundant material in all tissues,with the exception of bone. With enough water the elastin and collagen matrix on the dermis layer of your skin stays plump and hydrated. Dehydration can cause your skin to age prematurely.

Lets get started, ready?

Spa Night Essentials

First,cleanse your face.

Strawberry Cleanser

Ingredients needed.

4 ripe strawberries sliced (stems removed)

Peppermint or Lavender essential oil (optional)

In a small bowl, mash the strawberries and smash the pulp through cheese cloth/ strainer and catch the juice in a bowl, add essential oil if you desire. Rub onto your face, neck and decollete area. Massage in for one minute and rinse with warm water.

Next up, the eyes.

Brew some green tea, cool the tea bags and apply to closed eyes for 15 minute (remember the spa music? Listen now).

Use the cooled green tea as a toner for your face and dont forget to drink some too!

Lastly, bathe.

Fill your tub with warm water and add a 1/4 of powdered milk and/or oatmeal, grab a good book and wash your cares away!

Don’t forget some herb/o/logy soap for your bath. I would recommend Sea Spa for the exfoliant properties!

That my friends is a spa night herb/o/logy style! Indulge yourself, you deserve it!

See you on the garden path
