Pumpkin face mask.


 Since halloween  is nearly here and that means loads of pumpkins left over that nobody knows what to do with ,Well I was flipping through a beauty receipe book and lo and behold  a receipe for a pumpkin face mask-problem solved and here it is.
  1. 1 medium pumpkin cored to remove the stem.
  2. 4 pineapple chunks.
  3. 1 tbsp finely ground oats.
  4. 1 finely ground almonds.
  5. 1 tsp milk.
  6. 1 tsp honey.
  7. 2 drops rose geranium essentialoil.
  8. 1 drop rose essential oil.
Slice the pumpkin chunks into 6-8 pieces and remove the skin.Place the pieces (including seeds and strings)ina microwave safe dish with about 1/4 cup of water.Microwave for 2 mins or until flesh is soft,allow to cool for a few mins.Cut the pumpkin peel from around flesh and discard it.Place the pumpkin flesh ,seeds and strings into a small food processor with the pineapple chunks  and blend for 1 min or until smooth.Add oats,almonds,milk and honey blending for a short time after each one.Add essential oils and blend again.The texture should be rich and smooth but slightly grainy from the almonds.Apply a layer to clean and toned face and neck skin,leavefor 10-15 mins,rinse with warm water and apply moisturiser.

I've never been a fan of putting pumpkin in my mouth, now i know what to do with my left over pumpkins :D

Oh, i really don't know where to post but i have a little issue with my blogspot. I am absolutely certain that i'm following your blog, i can see a little pic of myself in the "follow" section. But in "Blogs I'm following" in my Dashboard, it wouldn't show the blogs i'm following or any updates. I hope you'd be able to help! thank you!
