Beauty Products Made at Home

Q. Do you have any recipes for natural beauty products?

Almine’s reply:

Lavender oil
Lavender oil is rare in that it is anti-inflammatory and balancing (normalizing oiliness) and is suitable for every body type. Furthermore, it reduces stress and enhances libido. It is a powerful wrinkle reducer, antiseptic and scar eliminator. Like bergamot oil, you can use it as an anti-depressant and it is also great as a deodorant. It relieves sunburn and restores skin’s elasticity.
Note: Drop 4 drops of lavender oil into a cup of pure, cool water. Dip a washcloth in the solution, wring out the excess liquid, and use as a soothing eye compress.

Toners and Spritzers
1. Mineral water mixed with 3–4 drops of lavender oil.
2. Organic apple cider vinegar mixed with 3–5 drops of lavender oil
relieves skin disorders, redness, inflammation and age spots.
3. A tablespoonful of witch hazel combined with 2 drops of lavender
oil is an astringent, cooling toner that refines skin tone and
minimizes enlarged pores. Store this in the refrigerator.

Note: Use spray bottle to mist face if desired, keep eyes closed when spritzing.

Managing Candidiasis

Handy Health Hint:

A douche of ¼ cup organic apple cider vinegar (with the mother in it) in 2 pints of pure water can be used several times a week. This douche can help to eliminate vaginal infections. If symptoms do not disappear, fungal overgrowth may be systemic and more comprehensive treatment may be needed. See Candida Symptoms here and How to Facilitate the Healing of Chronic and Systemic Disease book and 2-hour audio lecture here.
