This invigorating traditional Thai treatment uses honey to moisturize and sesame seeds, lavender, and mint to cleanse and energize. Makes 8 ounces (1 treatment).

• 1 cup honey
• 1⁄2 cup sesame seeds
• 2 teaspoons fresh ginger mint or 1 teaspoon dried
• 2 teaspoons fresh lavender or 1 teaspoon dried

1. Mix honey, sesame seeds and herbs into a thick paste.

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

Tip: Ginger mint has milky yellow and light green leaves with a mild ginger scent and flavor. It makes an attractive potted plant and is great in cooking and cosmetic recipes.
