Beauty treatments can be expensive and waiting times rather tiresome, yet you have no choice if you wish to look attractive and trendy most of the time. You could try pampering yourself with a do-it-yourself (DIY) aromatic facial with Lavender essential oil.Give Your Face an Entire Makeover

Lavender Facial

Fresh fruits are excellent material for facials; you can use the pulp of apples, apricots or peaches. For added benefit, you may go in for a teaspoonful of honey as well, or even an egg. Put the whole lot into a blender, and blend well. Your face pack is now ready, just add a 2-3 drops of Lavender essential oil and apply. If you find fruit pulp too messy, get a clay mask and add a few drops of Lavender essential oil to it. Leave it on for ten minutes before washing it off. If you have long hair, it will help to cover it up before applying the mask, otherwise the fruit can make strands of hair quite sticky and messy. The best thing about this DIY aromatic facial is that you may experiment with it as you wish. For example, other oils such as rosewood, sandalwood, patchouli, rose, or ylang-ylang may be used as add-ons.


Why do Your Eyes Look So Tired Always?

Living amidst polluted surroundings, long days and late nights tend to make your eyes puffy and red. A great way to help heal your eyes is with chamomile tea bags. They are completely safe and reliable, simply place a chamomile tea bag in boiling water and allow it to infuse, when the water has cooled slightly, pour a few drops of Lavender essential oil into it. Give the lavender oil a couple of minutes to penetrate the tea bag. Remove the tea bag, squeeze excess water, and place it on your closed eyes. They will feel soothed and relaxed immediately.


Monthly, Weekly and Daily Rituals

Make it a habit to get rid of accumulated dead skin cells, once a month, with the help of a DIY aromatic facial with Lavender essential oil. Pour around six drops of this oil into a blended mixture of one cup of coarse or fine oatmeal, half-a-cup of finely ground almonds and a teaspoon of clear honey. If you like to, you may add bergamot, geranium, or sandalwood oil too.

Every week, place a hot compress on your face. The compress refers to a flannel cloth soaked in hot water containing Lavender essential oil. After five minutes, splash cold water onto your face. Alternatively, other oils such as geranium, rose, sandalwood, lemon, or frankincense may be used too.

On a daily basis, take recourse to a cleanser-toner-moisturizer combination to which you can add Lavender essential oil. Apart from Lavender, sandalwood, chamomile, bergamot, lemon and geranium are also good additions to a cleansers. Toning can be done with the aid of Lavender by adding it to plain rosewater, witch-hazel water, or orange flower water. Finally, moisturize your face, you may add Lavender essential oil and rose to a moisturizer with a neutral base.

And voila there you have it, you just saved money, didn't use any harmful chemicals or preservatives and very importantly you did something fun and good for yourself.

My husband actually bought this excellent lavender oil for me. I'm a certified massage therapist and I use a LOT of essential oils in my practice. Many over the years have been pretty bad quality but WellnesScent, to my happy surprise, is excellent and very potent.
