I was in need of something comforting and delicious, something that would make me feel a bit better. So inspired by Healing Kitchen, I decided to make an elixir.
First, I simmered calendula, chamomile, & rose petals in almond milk for a bit. Then I strained it and poured the liquid into a blender with some cacao, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut oil, dates, a pinch of salt, and a bit of agave, and blended it. I topped it with a few more rose petals et voilà. It did the trick.
Really enjoying nettle leaf right now. When I first tried it I thought that maybe it wasn’t quite for me, but I gave it one more shot, and I’m liking it. It’s almost like a bit of a ‘pick me up’.
Ok so this has to be one of the most luxurious creams ever. The credit does not belong to me but to Rosemary Gladstar, but I have made a few edits. The ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, mango butter, carnauba wax, distilled water, aloe vera gel, carrot seed essential oil. The ingredient list is *chef’s kiss*, it feels super wonderful going on, and it has carrot seed essential oil which I love for my skin (and I enjoy the earthy smell).
There is nothing that will harm my skin, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, and it probably works better than 95% of beauty creams on the market from the cheapest to the most “luxurious”.
Also made a nettle tea sweetened a bit with rose syrup.
Kind of adore this mask, it seems to do wonders for my skin. Activated charcoal, bentonite clay, aloe vera, and a few drops of lavender essential oil, *chef’s kiss*.
Skin Support Tea is a mixture of burdock root, ginger, & calendula.
Had a bit of an allergic reaction and decided to make a strong cold compress of calendula & plantain. Then I realized at that particular moment it was very hard for me to sit with my eyes covered (it was around my eyes & nose) for any extended period of time. So I did one treatment then decided to make a toner with the calendula & plantain, and a bit of aloe vera gel for some extra support. Perfect.
But, I had some leftover calendula & plantain tea that I did not want to go to waste. Ice cubes to the rescue. Froze the calendula & plantain tea with some aloe, et voilà, emergency skin support when I need it.
(I could also drop these in some sparkling water and have a pretty health supportive drink).
