People often ask me what is your favorite candle fragrance? 

what's your favorite candle fragrance

Hands down my favorite candle fragrance is our Lemon Poppy Soy Candle. It's so fresh and sweet like lemonade on a summer day. It just makes me feel light and happy just taking in the sweet scent. Picture fresh squeezed lemonade and sugar. It's like that. 

Don't get me wrong I have other favorites but the first one to come to mind is our lemon poppy fragrance. I also like our Almond Vanilla Soy Candle. This is an original scent mixed right here on our farm It's also one of the very first candles we ever created. It's wonderful fragrance has held up all these years as a top seller. You'll love the nutty fragrance combined with warm vanilla.

Clay Face Mask Easy Homemade Recipe

By Kim Mash
on February 17, 2017

Clay face mask you can make at home with a few ingredients. 

clay face mask recipe

We love bentonite clay.

We use it in our Bay & Clay Goat Milk Soap. You can use any cosmetic clay and there's a lot to choose from. You can get cosmetic clay online or at your local health food store. We happen to use bentonite clay here at Chickenmash Farm for our soap and our own homemade face mask. Bentonite clay is formed from volcanic ash. It unclogs your pores making it a great clay to pull excess oil, dirt and blackheads out of your pores. The clay pulls toxins out of your skin and adheres to the clay. 

In this recipe you'll get great benefits from clay, yogurt and honey. 

While the clay absorbs excess oil and dead skin cells, the yogurt and honey add moisture and protect your skin. You only need three simple ingredients and you're on your way to making your own face mask at home. 

  • 2 teaspoons of plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cosmetic clay of your choice

Using a small container mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. You can use your fingers and apply the mask to your entire face avoiding your eyes. You want to apply a thin, even layer all over and leave on about 15 minutes. It might make your face feel dry like it's cracking but it's okay. If for some reason it burns your face remove immediately. For most people it should be gentle enough to detox your face safely. After 15 minutes rinse off with warm water and pat your face dry. 

A clay face mask you can easily make at home.

Moisturizing face mask for dry skin is quick and easy to make at home. 

moisturizing face mask for dry skin

You face a lot of elements everyday.

The sun, wind and pollution are some of the elements you have to face everyday. Just a few extra minutes a day can help you face harsh elements and reverse the effects they have on your face. You can create your own face mask at home in a matter of minutes with ingredients you have on hand in your kitchen. 

We make a Dry Skin Face Face Serum and one of our favorite ingredients is olive oil. Most of us have olive oil on hand and it's perfect for your skin, dry skin especially. We use olive oil in our dry skin face serum because it's a heavier oil perfect for dry skin types. We infuse ours with organic chamomile. You don't have to do that but the extra step makes a nice oil for your skin. 

What you'll need for your DIY moisturizing face mask for dry skin.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 avocado, ripen, soften and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt

Combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth. You can save any leftovers in your refrigerator for a few days. Try to use up rather quickly since you're using fresh ingredients. Use your fingers and rub all over your face and neck in a circular motion. You don't want to get it too close to your eyes. Massage a thin layer all over and let it on for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. You can then apply your favorite face serum to your freshly washed face. 

It's that easy to make your own moisturizing face mask for dry skin.

It's so simple to make your own face toner at home. 

All you need is witch hazel and a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Of course we have some suggestions on the best essential oils for dry skin types. In our Dry Skin Face Serum we use palmarosa essential oil, carrot seed essential oil, geranium essential oil and lavender essential oil.

Your simple list of ingredients:

I like to use mason jars. You want need a very big one. You can always make increase the ingredients to make a larger batch. Add the ingredients to your jar. Put the cap on tight and shake vigorously. Gently wipe the toner all over your face and neck with the cotton balls. Leave on for few minutes, rinse and pat dry. Store any leftover toner in a cool, dry place. Shake well before each use.

Product Review Maturing Skin Face Serum

Product review maturing skin face serum

We want to share a product review for our maturing skin face serum. Although we love our 5 star reviews, the one we want to share today is a 3 star review. I know it sounds crazy we want to talk about our least star review. But we think they brought up a good point - the scent! They said "it smells a bit weird...". 

We use essential oils that have been proven to show a benefit to maturing skin.

Essential oils like carrot seed, frankincense, myrrh, geranium, neroli and a citrus blend. I'll run through some of the benefits of this essential oil blend. It may not smell the best but it's the best for your maturing skin. 

  • Carrot seed essential oil is an antioxidant carotenoids. The carotenoids properties help rejuvenate skin cells and is healing for skin conditions. 
  • Frankincense essential oil doesn't have the best scent but it really packs a punch for maturing skin. It helps tighten and firms sagging skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Myrrh essential oil is loaded with antioxidants that actually helps reverse aging caused by free radicals. Free radicals can be caused by cigarette smoke, pollution and the sun. Antioxidants fight free radicals making this essential oil great for maturing skin. 
  • Geranium essential oil helps tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of pores. It's a great skin toner. 
  • Neroli essential oil is an excellent antibacterial, anti-inflammatory that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Citrus essential oil. We use a citrus blend to help brighten your skin tone and the sweet scent tones down the medicinal scent you smell in the Maturing Skin Face Serum. 

We appreciate all the reviews we receive on our products. It helps us know what you like and don't like. Keep them coming! The product review for maturing skin face serum is a big help to others.
