Ingredients: epsom salt, and your choice of citrus essential oil & dried citrus peel; rose essential oil and dried rose buds and petals; peppermint essential oil & dried peppermint leaves; lavender essential oil & dried lavender flowers.

To tighten and tone, put a cucumber in the blender and apply directly to skin, gently wash off with witch hazel. To cleanse, make a paste of coconut oil, honey, calendula and oatmeal.

Fill a hot water bottle with warm water and wrap a towel or cozy around it. Hold hot water bottle over area with castor oil. Soothing music and an eye mask make this a heavenly and healing afternoon nap.

Mix any (or all) of the following herbs in a pot of water: mint, mullein, sage, mugwort, mallow, Angelica (approx 1/2 cup herbs to 6 cups of water). Bring water to boil, covered. Cover head with a towel and lean face over the steaming herbs. Add essential oils of eucalyptus or peppermint for extra clearing, anti-microbial powers. You can mix the herbs and present them in a nice glass jar with a ribbon.
