Chamomile Honey Face Wash

Author Dr. Karen from https://www.drkarenslee.com

Ingredients

  • 1/8 cup 5 g fresh chamomile flowers
  • 1/4 cup 60ml raw honey

Instructions

  • Place the chamomile flowers in a small glass jar.
  • Pour the honey over the flowers and stir.
  • Cap the jar and set aside for 1-2 weeks, to allow the properties of the flowers to infuse into the honey.
  • In order to best preserve its raw benefits, don't use heat to try to speed up the process.
  • After sufficient time has passed, you can either strain the honey, which is a rather messy job or just work around the flowers as you use it.
  • To use as a face wash, rub the infused honey over your face and neck. Allow it to sit on your skin for a minute or so if you'd like.
  • Take a washcloth and run it under very warm water.
  • Place the cloth over your face for 15 to 20 seconds, to allow the heat to soften the honey.
  • Using the washcloth, gently wipe the honey from your face, rinsing the cloth out as needed.
  • Finish with a final splash of warm clean water on your face.
  • Follow with your favorite moisturizer, if desired.
  • Store the infused honey face wash in a cool, dark area.
  • Check before each use, but as long as the flowers remain completely covered by honey, it should stay fresh for several months.
