Its calming essence if the right thing for easing headaches and relaxation. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and aromatherapeutic features, it’s number one ingredient in soaps, lotions, salves, etc.
Cut the fabric in two sleep mask shapes and sew the endings together so that you have a gap in the middle. We recommend you chose silk or organic cotton or some other soft fabric. Mix up a combination of dried lavender, lavender essential oil and rice and stir it up. Fill out the pouch with the mixture and sew it closed. Now you just need to sew a length of ribbon or elastic to the fabric in order to tie it around your head. To obtain the optimal benefit of the lavender, warm the mask in the microwave for a few seconds and it’s ready to try it on!

Pumpkin is an extremely beneficial factor for repairing damaged skin and keeping it that way! It is filled with minerals and vitamins that provide the skin with the oil and moisture that the dry skin needs, and benefit the sun-damaged skin.

Mix the pumpkin with 1 tablespoon of the ground almond meal and ½ tablespoon of spices such as cinnamon, and ¼ tablespoon of nutmeg and ginger. After washing your face, apply the mask to your skin and let it absorb the beneficial properties of these ingredients for about 15 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and the rest of the mask store in a cold place so you can use it again.
