Women's Health (UK) - - GOOD LOOKS -

DAISY BALM

Soak some daisy heads in sweet al­mond oil, then blend with laven­der es­sen­tial oil and beeswax. Heat it up, then al­low it to cool and you’ll have cre­ated an ev­ery­thing balm that works on sore mus­cles, cu­ti­cles, lips and dry skin.

MARIGOLD FA­CIAL TONER

In a bowl, mix to­gether ap­ple cider vine­gar, witch hazel, cal­en­dula and veg­etable glyc­er­ine and, easy as that, you’ve just cre­ated a non-dry­ing toner that’s great for com­bi­na­tion skin.

ROSE­MARY NET­TLE HAIR RINSE

Rose­mary en­cour­ages growth, net­tles strengthen and ap­ple cider vine­gar cleanses and re­bal­ances the ph of your scalp. Crush the plants, add the vine­gar, leave for a fort­night, strain, then take it to the shower.
