Lemon Balm Face Wash Lotion

I found this old recipe for a face-wash lotion. It’s made of Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) that relaxes the skin and gives it a face wash too. It’s easy in use and simply made.

Ingredients
- Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)
- Lavender
- 20 ml Alcohol 60%
- 100 ml Boiling water

Put 3 tea spoons of Lemon Balm leaves and 1 tea spoon of Lavender in a pot or jar. Add the 100 ml of Boiling water to the mix. Leave it alone for 10 minutes. Use a coffee filter as a funnel to pour the mix into a bottle. Let it cool down, then add the Alcohol. Shake the bottle gently. It’s ready to use; store it on a dark cold spot and you can preserve this lotion 6 months.

  3. In my late twenties, I tried just about every moisturizer I could find including rarified ingredient boutique lotions but my skin remained dry, hot, itchy, flaky, and I was seeing laugh lines around my eyes.

    I was about to give up hope until my mothercame to visit and bought me the made from earth Vitamin Enhanced FACE FIRMING serum. This at the full $50price. I have been using it ever since. On the occasions I do try other lotions, they never measure up.

    My skin thanked me after the first application. After a few days, it looked better, was less red, less chapped - I love that all MADE FROM EARTH products are chemical free. Within a month or two (or less, I don’t remember after 7 years) I had no lines near my eyes, my skin feels soft and comfortable unless I abuse it. When I abuse it, this lotion makes it feel better.

    People consistently guess my age to be 5-8 years younger than I am even though I have grey hair. While they swear it’s not because of the immaturity..

    I almost never need more than a tiny amount the size of a pencil eraser to cover my face, neck and hands. (Keep the cap or it dries out.) Irecommend it to anyone looking for a facial moisturizer that works as good or better than advertised. Absolutely worth the money.
