You know that place in the mall that sells all those luscious fresh handmade cosmetics in those little black pots? Well here is my version of their Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser. This recipe is very gentle yet effective and is based on a very old recipe from times long ago. I love the natural healthy glow I get when I use this for an entire week and have noticed a definite improvement and evenness to my skin tone. Who would have thought that simple ingredients could combine to be so amazing for your skin?!?
Fresh-Picked Beauty's version of Angels On Bare Skin
30 grams ground blanched almonds
20 grams vegetable glycerine
25 grams cosmetic clay
2 grams powdered lavender flowers
25 grams rose water
20 drops lavender essential oil
15 drops benzoin resin
5 drops rose essential oil
5 drops chamomile blue essential oil
2 grams dried lavender flower buds
Add the ground almonds into a small bowl.
Drizzle in the vegetable glycerine.
Sprinkle in the cosmetic clay. Use Rhassoul Clay if you have very dry skin.
I added in my own little twist to this recipe by adding in lavender flower powder. You can get this at Mountain Rose Herbs.
You can find essential oils many different places, like Mountain Rose Herbs. Just make sure you use high quality natural essential oils. Do not get confused with synthetic fragrance oils, these are not good for you.
After you have your cleanser all mixed up, roll it out on a sheet of waxed paper. Sprinkle the dried lavender buds over the top and then roll it up or form it in a small ball. Place in a lidded container. Store in the fridge and use within two weeks (this recipe does not contain any preservatives). I like to use this by placing a heaping teaspoon of the cleanser in my hand, add a little bit of warm water to make a paste and massage into my face for a few minutes. I usually do this right before I hop in the shower. Enjoy & Green Blessings.
