This facial mask recipe is for oily skin. The acid in the tomato and lemon work on acne and blackheads too. Using tomatoes in this recipe also provides a use for the abundance of tomatoes in the garden that may be getting a bit over-ripe for eating.
You will need:
1 over-ripe tomato; inside scooped and mashed
1 drop genuine, therapeutic, pure Lemon essential oil (the brand I use)
1 tsp instant oatmeal
Puree all ingredients in a blender. Apply to freshly cleaned face and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
About Lemon Essential Oil
Therapeutic-grade Lemon essential oil is known for promoting clarity of thought and has a fragrance that is fresh, invigorating, enhancing, and warming. University researchers in Japan found that diffusing certain aromas in an office environment dramatically improved mental accuracy and concentration. Diffused lemon resulted in 54 percent fewer errors, jasmine 33 percent fewer errors, and lavender 20 percent fewer errors. When aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent. A 1995 Mie University study found that citrus fragrances boosted immunity, induced relaxation, and reduced depression.
