Cordon Bleugh Peppermint Face Mask
• Step 1
Combine 1/2 cup table salt with 1/3 cup olive oil, blending to make a smooth and slightly coarse paste. Add 3 drops of peppermint essential oil and mix well. Rub this invigorating scrub onto cleansed skin of the face and neck, but keep away from the eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
• Step 2
Blend 1/4 cup dried peppermint leaves with 1 cup oatmeal. Mix in a food processor or blender to form a coarse, dry mix. Put into a well-sealed jar and use a handful to rub onto wet, cleansed face and neck for a quick facial scrub. Add just enough water to make a thin paste. Stay away from the eye area. Rinse with cool water.
• Step 3
Measure 1/2 cup table sugar or brown sugar into a bowl and add 1/4 cup almond oil. Mix in 1 to 2 drops peppermint essential oil and 2 to 3 drops lavender essential oil. Blend well but don't make sugar start dissolving by stirring too briskly. After cleansing face and neck, gently massage the mixture onto the skin, keeping free of the eye area. Rinse with warm, then cool water.
• Step 4
Mix 1/4 cup cornmeal with 1/4 cup table salt and 1/4 cup almond oil. Stir in a few drops of peppermint essential oil and 1/4 cup dried peppermint leaves. Rub gently onto cleansed skin of face and neck, staying away from the eyes. Splash with warm water to rinse.
• Step 5
Peel a ripe avocado and slice into a bowl. Mash lightly with a fork and stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add 1 tbsp. jojoba oil or olive oil and 3 drops of peppermint essential oil. Apply scrub to cleansed face and neck skin. Take care to avoid the eyes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
