~Fresh Friday Spa Style! ~

Well it's Fresh Friday and I know I am supposed to post something edible but.. since fall is officially here that means it's time to slow down and relax and take in all of falls fabulous colors and smells. So I thought why not post something you can do while sitting outside enjoying falls arrival. So I came across a recipe for a pumpkin face mask and I thought ok how nice would that be to make your own face mask out of natural ingredients. So open up your favorite fall red wine, break out some organic chocolate put on some jazz and whip up your own pumpkin face mask.
Oh in case you didn't know pumpkin conatins antioxidants such as vitamins A & C as well as phytonutrients that help you looking young!

I hope you make the time this fall to slow down and wind down from all of the summer activities and just relax and enjoy what is right in front of you!

Happy Fall

To make the mask you will need to :

Mix together 1/2 cup of organic pumpkin
1/4 cup bentonite clay which I found out you can buy at your local health food store

1 tsp honey
2 tbs water
1 tbsp almond oil
2 tsp cinnamon

apply evenly to your face, leave on for 10 min.
almond oil moisturizes the clay draws out the impurities honey replenishes collagen and the cinnamon improves circulation .
Can't wait to whip mine up!
