For a very long time, like most moms, I put myself last. I thought I was taking care of my family, but the truth was, I wasn’t giving them my best because I wasn’t at my best myself. Now, however,  I take self care very seriously. You can’t pour from an empty cup, or so they say!

One of my pampering self care activities are weekly face masks. They are so easy to make, there’s really no excuse not to take a little time for yourself. 

You’ll need: 

1 tbs bentonite clay
1/4 tsp activated charcoal
1/2 tsp honey
1 1/2 tsp water
3 drops lavender
2 drops frankincense

Add just enough water to make a paste and brush it on your face with a brush like this or use your fingers. Personally, I like the brush. 🙂 Let sit for about 10-15 minutes or until it dries. Then wash off with warm water and moisturize.

Don't have herbs? Shop from Starwest Botanicals or Mountain Rose Herbs.
