MASQUE OF THE MONTH!

MASQUE OF THE MONTH features, well, a masque - each month - that you can make yourself at home using natural, botanical and locally wildcrafted ingredients. These masques will also often be featured in seasonal facial offerings in the

Autumn Moon Skin Care Studio.

THIS MONTH'S MASQUE -

::HONEY & OAT SOOTHING MASQUE::

Soothing Colloidal Oats fuse with nourishing Raw Honey and Oils of Avocado & Rosehip Seed, all delicately scented with Essential Oils of calming Chamomile & Lavender. This mask is wonderful for dry and sensitive skin needing moisture and nourishment.

::HONEY & OAT SOOTHING MASQUE:

1T RAW HONEY

1T SHEA OR MANGO BUTTER

1 TO 2t COLLOIDAL OATS (you can also substitute with ground oats)

1T AVOCADO OIL

1t ROSEHIP SEED OIL

1 DROP CHAMOMILE ESSENTIAL OIL

4 DROPS LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL

Blend all ingredients with a whisk by hand. Depending on the texture of your shea/mango butter, you may need to slightly warm the ingredients to allow them to blend together properly. For a thinner masque, add more avocado oil. 

Apply masque to freshly cleansed skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Gently remove with a warm, damp cloth and rinse with warm water. Follow with your favorite toner, serum and moisturizer. Use masque within one week.
