Chat It's Fate - - Contents -

For­get or­get ex­pen­sive hair prod­ucts and face creams – for cen­turies, hedge­witches have known how to use nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, not just to look more beau­ti­ful, but to feel fan­tas­tic, too. And you too can use the bounty of Na­ture to make yourself com­pletely ra­di­ant, in­side and out!

CA­CAO FACE CLEANSER

It’s a rare joy, find­ing out that some­thing as de­li­cious as cho­co­late is ac­tu­ally good for you. Al­though we’re not talk­ing about the sugar-filled bars in your lo­cal newsagents, but the raw stuff. And it’s for your skin, not your tummy – sorry!

Raw ca­cao is brim­ming with free radical-fight­ing an­tiox­i­dants, rich in flavonoids to stim­u­late blood cir­cu­la­tion and leave you with glow­ing skin, and full of raw en­zyme to aid in cell re­pair and re­ju­ve­na­tion.

Aside from its long list of beauty ben­e­fits, raw ca­cao also holds its own in the quest for spir­i­tual growth by sup­port­ing the func­tion of the pineal gland, en­hanc­ing intuition and detox­i­fy­ing your aura by shift­ing out neg­a­tive en­ergy. Blended with green tea, which is known for pro­mot­ing spir­i­tual har­mony, your mind, body and soul are go­ing to love this DIY face mask. In­gre­di­ents: 2 tbsp raw ca­cao pow­der 1/2 tsp co­conut oil 1/4 tsp maca root pow­der 1 cup of cooled green tea Method: • Steep your green tea and leave to cool while you go ahead with the fol­low­ing steps. • Mix the dry in­gre­di­ents to­gether in a bowl. • Add your cho­sen oil lit­tle by lit­tle, blend­ing the mix­ture as you go. • Pour in your cooled green tea 1 tsp at a time un­til a smooth, creamy con­sis­tency is reached. • Ap­ply in a thick layer over your face and re­lax for 10-15 min­utes. • Run a clean face cloth that you don’t mind get­ting stained un­der hot water, wring out and then hold against your face to steam. • Gen­tly wipe away the mask with the cloth. • Run the cloth un­der cold water and then place onto your face to close your pores.
