We also got to spend a little time in the beautiful Colorado National Monument and do our favorite hike to Devil's kitchen. And of course we checked out a few of the wineries and breweries in the area as well. Overall a short, but sweet weekend jaunt!
Lavender Facial Mask
(by Cindy Jones, Sagescript Institute, www.sagescript.com)
1 T Lavender buds/leaves, dried
1 T Red Clover blossoms, dried
1 T Cornflower blossoms, dried
3 T Oatmeal
Mix together in food processor
Add a tablespoon of honey and some liquid. The liquid can be water, juice, even yogurt, but the best choice would be a lavender distillate.
Mix into a suitable texture.
Apply to face, relax w a cup of tea, wash herbs off face.
You can basically use any herb combination you have on hand but use enough oatmeal to give it a sticky consistency.
