  Hi ,
As I sit here desperately trying to stay focused on my work, this super adorable baby squirrel is totally distracting me. He's eating dropped birdseed on the back porch door mat and I keep grabbing the camera to get the perfect shot. Okay...focus, focus, focus.

June...the month in which Summer begins. I thought it would be fun to share some homemade summertime facial mask recipes. Fun, yummy, and beneficial. Shawn and I have smoothies for breakfast every morning. We always put strawberries in that we get by the flat at the Farmer's market. We are now down to our last bag which is marked "June '09"- perfect timing!

Check out the Featured Products Of The Month - Coffee & Sea Kelp Contour Scrub and Organic Wild Thyme Foot Pumice. Between these and a homemade strawberry facial mask, you'll be livin' it up at your 'spa at home'!
Enjoy the sweet pleasures of Summer!

Thanks for your support and enthusiasm with donating your hair and old nylons to help clean up the oil spill. I sent all the hair clippings and nylons I had to the east coast where volunteers will make booms and mats. It feels good to be able to help the situation in this way.

Keep the nylons - and hair - coming!  ;-)

Eyes Homemade Summer Strawberry Masks

Mmmm.......Strawberries, honey, cream, lemon. These homemade masks are bound to make you drool! ;-)

Strawberries make an excellent cleansing and skin-softening facial mask. They contain salicylic acid, which rids the skin of dead cells, allowing it to absorb moisture more efficiently. Strawberries also have a mild bleaching effect on the skin and help to heal blemishes. People with sensitive or sunburned skin might find strawberries irritating. You might want to test on a small patch of skin first to assess your skin's reaction.

Here are some really simple strawberry masks. They have 4 ingredients or less - ingredients that your bound to have in your kitchen once strawberry season is in full swing here. Make sure you use organic strawberries. Non-organic strawberries are know to contain heavy residues of pesticides.

(They are one of the "Dirty Dozen" foods.) (see "Dirty Dozen" list)  (see news video)


 8 - 9 organic strawberries in a bowl

3 tablespoons of honey

In a bowl, use a fork to mash strawberries into a pulp. Mix in honey. Don't over blend or it will be runny. Apply to skin, let sit for a 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.



cup of very ripe organic strawberries

cup cornstarch

Mix the strawberries and cornstarch together in a bowl making a paste. Apply to skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse with cool water.


1/2 cup fresh organic strawberries
1 tablespoon fresh milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
In a bowl, mash together ingredients to make a smooth paste. Spread over face and neck and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.


1 cup strawberries

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 egg whites
2 teaspoon honey
Blend ingredients in a bowl and apply to face. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.


4 to 5 very ripe, medium size strawberries
2 teaspoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon honey

Mash strawberries in a bowl. Add the cream and honey, mixing well. Leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
