I added 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey. (affiliate links for all products ahead)
Then, added two drops of Frankincense and four drops of Lemon, mixed it up and spread it on my face. I'd suggest letting it sit on your face for 5 to 15 minutes, to your level of comfortability.
Frankincense has a long history of loving our SKIN and supporting it to be it's brightest & tightest.
**TIP: If you want an added layer of freshness, try swirling a toothpick into your Young Living Peppermint Oil and then into your honey mask mixture. Peppermint brings oxygen to the skin's surface and is very invigorating.
I actually added a whole drop of peppermint, and while it felt fabulous I DO NOT recommend that for every one. I could see how it would be too much for someone with skin sensitivities and I don't want you to cut your frank & lemon time short! Be the CEO of your own health and of your own skincare, too!! :-)
Gentle, regular exfoliating is important to clear away debris like skin cells that have been shed, mixed with make up, and sebum and yech!!
Just in case you're wondering... This did not taste good. Lol!
A teaspoon each made enough to do my face, decolletage and have a little leftover for my teenaged son's forehead. (which responded well to this treatment) I mixed this together in a fingerbowl, but you could make it in a container that closes. And you can also make more at one time if you'd like. Just stick to equal parts on the honey/baking soda ratio and adjust your oils to your liking accordingly.
I followed up with Young Living's Sandalwood cream, which is just...a dream in a jar!
I learned something about Sandalwood this evening that I'd like to share with all of you. Studies show that sandalwood (also known as Aloes) is the only essential oil that causes cell mitosis to happen (which equates to regenerating--dare I say...healing!!) faster. Amazing, yes? Even weirder is the part about skin cells having the same olfactory receptors as our noses! Fascinating stuff!!
