Whip up a beautiful you with a daily herbal facial.
This combination of comfrey and oats is quick and easy to prepare. Comfrey soothes the skin, and the oats draw oil and cosmetic residues out of the skin. This is a good blend for normal skin and a nice alternative to moisture-robbing soap. MAKES 1 CUP (ENOUGH FOR ABOUT 16 APPLICATIONS)
• 1/2 cup dried comfrey leaf
• 1/2 cup whole organic oats
1. Finely powder both ingredients and mix together. Use 1 heaping tablespoon of the scrub to approximately 1 teaspoon pure water or plain yogurt. Mix well to form a creamy paste.
2. Apply to skin with a soft, wet cloth or sponge. Gently scrub face. Rinse with water. Store and use for 6 months.
