DIY Herbal Spa Day!

Amy Charnay

I recently co-hosted a DIY Spa day with my dear friend and colleague, Nicteha (check her out crafty creations and services here. We had SO MUCH FUN and hope to offer this again a few times annually. Until then, I wanted to share the all natural skin care recipes that I whipped up so you can have your own delightful spa day at home, at the beach, or with your friends. Here are the recipes in order of use, enjoy! 

STEP 1:
OPTIONAL -
Before cleansing with the gentle exfoliating cleaner, apply plain Baking soda to your damp face and gently massage to exfoliate a bit more than just using the cleanser solo.

GENTLE EXFOLIATING FACIAL CLEANSER: 
1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Ground Oats
1/4 cup Liquid Coconut or Olive Oil Soap
1/4 cup Oil (Olive, Jojoba, Almond, etc.)
Essential Oils to scent. I used: Palmarosa, Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, Calendula & Blue Chamomile

Combine all of the above ingredients. Apply to dry face, massaging in a circular motion. Add water, continue to massage face and rinse. 

STEP 2:
GREEN GOLD FACE MASK:

1/3 cup Cosmetic grade French Green Clay
1/4 cup Raw Local Honey
1/2 cup Hydrosol (I used Helichrysum) 
1 Avocado
1 Tbsp Oil. I used a blend of Jojoba, Argan, Rosehip Seed and Evening Primrose Oils. 
Essential Oils to scent. I used: Palmarosa, Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, Calendula & Blue Chamomile

Combine all of the above ingredients and puree in a blender or food processor. After cleaning, apply to face & décolleté. Leave on for 10-20 minutes, then rinse, tone & moisturize

STEP 3:
HONEY CHARCOAL SPOT TREATMENT:

Combine honey, activated charcoal and a few drops of each: Rosemary verbenon, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils. Apply topically on blemishes. 

STEP 4:
NOURISHING FACIAL OIL:

I combined equal parts of Rosehip Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Jojoba Oil and add Essential Oils based on your skin needs. I used: Palmarosa, Carrot Seed, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Calendula.

STEP 5:
HYDROSOLS: 

Mist face with hydrosols regularly to hydrate and refresh. Check my shop page to purchase 100% natural, local hydrosols. I make them in small batches on my Herban Farm here in Northern California. 

SUGAR OR SALT SCRUB:
Combine sugar or salt with carrier oils and essential oils to scent. I used organic sugar and a blend of Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Argan Oil and Evening Primrose Oil. Choose Essential Oils based on your skin needs. I used: Palmarosa, Carrot Seed, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Calendula.
