All Natural, Home Made, Food & Floral Based Face Mask Recipes

All Natural, Home Made, Food & Floral Based Face Mask Recipes

Today I want to share some of my favourite All Natural, Home Made, Food & Floral Based Face Mask Recipes. I have two recipes that are used as face mask, face scrub or all natural home-made exfoliate. Rest of them are freshly made facemask which has to be used soon as they are made from fresh ingredients.  Please read my previous blog to learn more about various ingredients you can use for skin care,  Top 12 DIY Ingredients used in Ayurveda and Natural Beauty Care for the Skin. Some recipes have essential oils, however you can avoid that completely if you do not have excess to pure and unadulterated essential oils. Check out my blog on How to get Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. For safety please note that when using essential oils do not apply the masks too close to your eyes.
