Monday Again?

Good Morning All!

Doesn’t it seem like the weekends always fast-forward to Monday? It does for me anyway. Well it’s the start of a brand new week to tackle new challenges, new opportunities and of course new recipes!

Here is one for you to try that I have been thinking about and may put together and try out this week. If you decide to try it, please let me know by way of comment here OK? Thanks!

The recipe is for a gentle but healing facial cleanser with Calendula flowers and aloe. Calendula is a powerful all-purpose skin-helper, since it is highly emollient, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. This cleansing milk is a healing addition to your beauty routine. 

INGREDIENTS

4 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon fresh Calendula flowers or 1 teaspoon dried
2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
25 drops grapefruit seed extract

1. In a double boiler over very low heat, heat the oil and Calendula flowers together for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then strain out the flowers and discard them.

2. Stir the aloe vera and the grapefruit seed extract into the cooled oil, mixing well to combine.

To Use: Scoop some of the milk onto your fingers and massage gently into skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

This is not my own recipe but was found in a book called 

Better Basics for the Home Simple solutions for less toxic living.  By Annie Berthold-Bond

If this works well for me and my daughter, I will explore how to preserve it naturally and offer it in my store!

Remember. If you try it, please let me know Thanks!

Have a Beautiful Monday! & All The Best To You!!!
