This meeting of your face is called to order.

Word of mouth is Vida Spa’s new Local Artisan Ayurvedic Facial helps skin prep for winter. The all-natural, locally sourced treatment includes a deep herbal cleanse, exfoliation, mask, and the shirodhara (warm sesame oil dripped over the third eye — that’s you, forehead — and massaged into the scalp and hair).

Now, should we offer an at-home solution for those living hand to mouth? Seems the eyes have it.

Vida Spa’s Homemade Herb Cleanser

Ingredients (available at most natural health stores)
1 part dried lavender flowers
1 part dried chamomile
1 part dried rose petals
3 parts oat flour

1. Mix and grind (a coffee grinder works well) the herbs together.

2. Add oat flour and blend thoroughly.

3. Place ½ tsp. of the mixture in a small bowl and mix with enough water to create a paste with a yogurt-like consistency. Warm the mixture in a small pan on medium-low heat for 5 minutes so the herbs more easily absorb the water, creating a creamier cleanser and a softer exfoliation.

4. Massage over the skin, avoiding the eye area.

5. Remove with a warm cloth and follow with moisturizer.

6. Go ahead: Take a brow.
