Snow Day Beauty Treatments!

We're in the deepest part of winter here in Kansas. Since we homeschool, we don't have snow days - but we made an exception one snowy Tuesday because I wasn't feeling so great and there was a ton of snowflakes falling. The girls and I decided we needed a few beauty treatments to brighten our day (and our skin!) Here's what we did:

Deep Clean Clay Mask
3 Tbsp kanolin clay
1 tbsp honey
1 drop roman chamomile essential oil
water

*combine ingredients in a bowl, drip a bit of water (we used maybe 2 tbsp)  in to create a spreadable paste. I used a paint brush to brush the mask onto our skin. Sit back and relax for 10 minutes, then rinse off.

Luscious Skin Cleanser
3 tbsp almond meal
1 tbsp kanolin clay
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp jojoba oil (or really any good oil for skin)
1 d roman chamomile
1 d lavender

*mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined. See picture for
how this product looks once mixed up.*

store in airtight container, in the fridge

Use pea sized amount in wet hands. Apply in circular motion to wet face. Wipe clean with warm wash cloth.

Amazing dry skin oil
To 4 oz of macadamia nut oil
add 10 - 15 drops patchouli essential oil

This smells amazing and leaves skin feeling very luxurious!

I hope that you are staying warm and toasty. Just a few more weeks and spring will be here!!
