Instructions
  1. Mix the ingredients together in a small, clean bottle.
  2. Apply a few drops of the mixture on your fingertips. Start massaging, from the inner corner of the eye, moving upward towards the temples and around the eye across the bone underneath and up again in a circular motion. Repeat this movement 4-5 times morning and evening.
  3. This massage activates the microcirculation and drains the excess edema responsible for dark circles of fatigue. The lymphatic drainage also has a lifting effect.

Ingredients
  • 18 grams beeswax
  • 65 ml Almond Oil (Sweet)
  • 20 ml rosewater
  • 2/3 teaspoon soya lecithin (about 3ml)
  • 5 drops Rose Oil
Ingredients
  • 18 grams beeswax
  • 65 ml Almond Oil (Sweet)
  • 20 ml rosewater
  • 2/3 teaspoon soya lecithin (about 3ml)
  • 5 drops Rose Oil
Instructions
  1. Put the first 4 ingredients in a double boiler or a bowl over a pot of water and melt gently on a low heat, stirring with a light touch. Then place the bowl in cold water to activate the cooling cream and continue mixing. Use a whisk or mixer when mixture begins to "take." Replace the water with cold water if it becomes warm. When the cream is ready, add the rose essential oil and mix well.
  2. Dispense into small, clean glass jars using a sterilised spatula and store in the refrigerator.
Recipe Notes

Prepare the cream in small quantities because it does not keep well.

You can possibly freeze pots to preserve the mixture for longer.

Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • (approximate measurements)
Instructions
  1. Mix everything together in a small bowl – you want a really thick paste, thicker than you think you will need because as soon as you apply it, the coconut melts and the mixture thins
  2. Put on an old shirt
  3. Hold a warm, wet facecloth against your face a few times to dampen skin and open pores
  4. Dab mixture all over the face, jaw line, and down the neck
  5. Leave on for about 20 minutes
  6. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry
Recipe Notes

Tip: apply mask with a brush. Turmeric seems to wash off the face but not the fingernails.

  • 1 or 2 drops Lavender Oil or orange oil
  • 1 small glass bowl
  • 1 wooden ice cream stick or toothpick for mixing

  2. Add just enough water to mix into a smooth, thick paste.

  5. Smear mask all over face and jaw line, avoid getting too close to the delicate skin around the eyes.

If you don’t have the powder you can use 2 charcoal capsules – just open them and pour the contents out.
