Strawberry Cleanser

This is one of my favorite facials--it leaves your skin tingly and refreshed. Fabulous after a long day in the heat! You could even make it in the morning then store it in the fridge to apply later in the day!
You will need 4 very ripe strawberries and 2 drops of yarrow or peppermint essential oil.
Instructions: mash the strawberries and pres through mesh strainer or squeeze through cheesecloth or panty hose. Catch the juice in a small bowl. Then add the essential oil and blend. Apply to face and neck with a saturated cotton square and massage into skin for about 1 minute. Avoid the eyes! Rinse with cool water.
