For our break, she had a surprise waiting for us!
First, a facial sugar scrub...Very nice except that we don't use refined sugar so the closest we could do is evap. cane juice which is a little course for a facial scrub.
It was a nice blend of
10 drops lavender essential
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp almond oil
a generous pinch of lavender flowers
Both girls decided to use a castille soap to remove their scrub but I just rinsed the solids from my face and gently wiped away the excess oil with a towel. This proved to be important in the next step.
Chocolate Brownie PMS Mask!
Sounds yummy, right? Taste tests revealed that it's good to eat as well as put on your face!
4 tsp ground and sifted oatmeal
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp sourcream (add more if needed)
Doesn't it look good?!
Chocolate makes everyone smile!
Notice that my mask is sliding a bit because of the oil from step 1.
What's a facial break without a little fun?! Marx Bros. anyone?
We followed that with a goat's milk moisturizer made from
2 tsp. powdered goats milk
1 tsp.filtered water
2 drops lavender essential oil
1 tsp. glycerin
Soft and smooth and still smelling a bit like chocolate...what could be better than that? Thanks for the facial spa, Little Bit!
