I love using a clay face masque and always wanted to make my own. This is a super simple recipe that you can create and store. It will leave your skin feeling fresh and supple and smells lovely too.

You will need:

Place all ingredients into the jar, then slowly add the rose water until you have a nice sloppy consistency. Nothing more to it.

Note: always spot test on skin first


Ants are welcome to be in the garden, this is where they belong, however, when they invite themselves in it can be rather annoying.

Follow this simple, natural method and avoid them nibbling in your pantry.


Ants invite themselves in for 2 reasons, water and food. Once these have been cleaned up then soak a cotton ball/make-up pad in eucalyptus oil and run it across the door or window where the ants are entering.

Ants use chemical trails to find their way about. If you remove their need to come in and remove their chemical road, this will go a long way to solving your uninvited guest problem.
