Pamper Yourself

As I've gotten older, I've realized the importance of taking the time to pamper myself. With so many options in our lives, it is easy to put self-care at the bottom of our to do list. However, rest and relaxation can prevent chronic stress from damaging the cells in our bodies that will eventually lead to dis-ease (the inability to be at ease). When we are feeling anxious or stressed out, it is important to take steps that will lead us closer to our natural state of PEACE and JOY.

When my oldest daughter, Adrienne came to visit recently, we decided that the perfect way to relax was to give our skin a little TLC. I had ordered the Mountain Rose Natural Facial Kit, which ended up being quite a lovely and refreshing experience. The kit includes quality herbs, pure essential oils, French green clay, and pure rosewater with five complete facials. The ingredients come in a simple decorative box made from recycled fibers, wild grass paper, and a twig closure. I gave my three daughters facials last week and then my husband and I gave each other a facial yesterday. It was such a great way to spend intimate time together, decompress, and RELAX.

The herbal facial kit involves the following five steps:

Step 1: Herbal Facial Steam- Opens pores with plant oils and smells like chamomile tea.

Step 2: Cleansing Grains- Gently exfoliates dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Step 3: Green Clay Mask- Draws impurities out of the skin and increases circulation. It felt amazing!

Step 4: Facial Oil Blend- Moisturizes the skin, which resulted in a healthy glow.

Step 5: Rosewater Toner- Invigorating spray to seal in moisture. Smells like fresh rose petals.

Below is a photo of the herbs for the facial steam that are rich in nutrients and tone the skin. The oils of the plants are released by the heat and absorbed by the skin.

Peace and Joy,
