This is an invigorating treatment for skin and body. The humectant properties of honey nourish and moisturize skin, while sesame seeds, lavender and mint cleanse and energize the body. Makes 8 ounces (one treatment).

• 1 cup honey
• 1/2 cup sesame seeds
• 1 teaspoon dried mint
• 1 teaspoon dried lavender leaves

1. Mix together honey, sesame seeds and herbs until a thick paste forms.

2. To use, rub paste all over your body, slowly taking time to deep cleanse and exfoliate dead skin cells. Rinse well in a warm shower and moisturize with a light oil, such as sesame or almond oil.
