An easy way to shake off the blues!

Top Review by Vnut-Beyond Redempt

This recipe is pretty good EXCEPT 25ml is too much for 1 facial, it is enough for a light body massage though. If you want to use it for your face, make the recipe and use just a teaspoon or enough to oil your face to your liking. This recipe makes 5 facial applications. Lemon is photo-toxic so don't use more than 1 drop and don't out into the sun immediately after you put on this mixture. Make sure the Rose essential oil is pure and genuine. I would also recommend that only one drop of essential oil be used for face at any one time and be careful at the area around the eyes. If it stings, stop using it.
