Watch out the Manuka factors, which measures the antibacterial factor: UMF Unique Manuka Factor, which measures the strength of the antibacterial properties.
Another measurement used is the KFactor, created by Manuka honey maker Wedderspoon. According to them, KFactor 12 guarantees 65 percent of the pollen grains in the honey are Manuka pollen grains.
Geranium essential oil
Among other properties, this oil will gently stimulate blood flow and balance sebum.
HOW TO MAKE IT
Mix all ingredients in a wooden bowl, starting with rice flour and clay, then add the vegetable oils. Mix it all (it won’t be homogenous), then pour the mix into your blender, where you will have put your peeled and finely cut fresh turmeric + rose water mix. Mix it all until the paste is super homogenous. Add the geranium essential oil and blend it all one last time. Pour the mix into your preferred container. If you can, place it in the fridge for about 30 to 40 minutes prior to use it, for a circulation boost.
HOW TO USE IT
Use this mixture cold on a perfectly cleansed face (using a very mild make-up remover of course). It’s always good to do this in the evening and have a nice moment with yourself. Apply the mix on your face and if you wish, you can do the neck and decollete. Let it sit for about 15 minutes or less, depending on how you feel. Then either rinse off with tepid water, or lightly exfoliate first with a bit of water, then rinse off. Tap dry with a clean cotton towel and then apply your favorite moisturizer.
Recommendations and safety tips:
Always buy your carrier oils cold pressed and certified organic if possible. Buy certified organic essential oils if possible too. Or make sure they are pure and ethically manufactured.
Always make a patch test
Avoid sun exposure after applying the recipe
Don’t use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding but rather stick to a virgin oil.
