Last year I bought my husband a variety of small herb plants and an ivy and placed them in plant pots.  He works on the computer hours at a time. He also likes to cook when he is in the mood. So, my ploy to get him in the kitchen worked for me all year.He not only made us some spa water with fresh rosemary and lemons. He also uses the basil with Italian dishes and pretends be talian. The plants have grown into these eco healthy plants that purify the air from bad things that get in our home and keeps him healthy from all that computer blue light and what rays our tech tools give off.

Bonus they are so beautiful to look at and aromatic too.

Give him a few plants in a beautiful basket,wrap in a cookbook and a small kitchen utensil and spoon or whisk…

I love…Rosemary! She is…

 

My faces go to!

When this steamy HOT weather gets my spirit’s and face down. I reach for my rosemary plant outside my office and or house door.photo Rosemary

I put on a pot of hot water as if I am making a pot of pasta.

Next I bring it to a boil.

I pull of a few pieces of rosemary and add a cut up a few lemon slices too.

Add it to the hot pot of water.

Let the two dance together in the water that has boiled.

Shut off the pot. Place a small kitchen towel over your head and let the steam rise to meet your face. DO NOT place face close to water. All you want is the steam to rise and detox your pores,loosen up dead skin cells and clear out your nasal passages.

Follow with a mud mask,rinse and moisturize.Enjoy!

This combination makes an aromatic delightful scent your face and nasal passages will love! My face is happy again.

Have fun making your own facial steam baths without going to the spa. Do share with me your own steamy facial concoctions!!!

D.I.Y. Pore Glow and Facial Steam

humidifier violifeTHIS really works at getting your skin going and glowing.

I love my oh so feather light weight VIOlife personal humidifier! It really makes the dry air moist (Dry air sucks moisture from our skin) and it makes my skin LOOK and feel amazing after a good nights sleep and it on in my bedroom. It is eco-friendly as it uses a bottle of water (like you drink) or fill the bottle that it comes with and refill it again and again.Simply plug it in and you are good to go. You can also use this humidifier at your office desk or in your living room too.

Another skin energizing idea …

I also LOVE to do a facial steam bath for my pores.In this brutal long winter weather unless you are an avid jogger or workout at the gym…You really don’t work up a sweat. This steam bath that you can do at home like the spas do with their expensive professional equipment is cheap,chic and you feel so clean afterwards.

What you will need:

A pot of hot water (like you are making pasta)

1 bunch of rosemary,dried roses or fresh mint

Boil the fresh water on the stove top and place the flowers or herbs inside then turn pot off.

Next, place a soft thin towel (I use a kitchen tea towel) and place it over your head. Form like a veil on your head and over your face. Lean your face towards (NOT INTO) this steamy water brew.let the steam hit your face.

You will notice your skin will start to work up a sweat and your skin will start to get dewy. This is a GREAT sign.

Remember you are doing a facial STEAM bath. NOT anything more. You can do this approx. 5-8 minutes.

Today on TV I will show the viewers how to do this on a daytime talk show here in sunny Florida.
