Daily Feng Shui News for Sept. 30 –

Let’s get dirty! It’s ‘National Mud Pack Day’ and I want to share a ‘secret’ recipe for making a facial mud pack at home. You’ll need three teaspoons of Fuller’s earth, two teaspoons of curd yogurt, a half-teaspoon of almond oil and three drops of rose water. Put the curd in a bowl and gradually stir in the Fuller’s earth. Pour the almond oil and rose water on top and mix all ingredients until they form a paste. Apply this mud mask to your face, wait twenty minutes and rinse it off with cool water. Mud puddles might make you feel like a kid again, but this all-natural facial pack will have you looking like one!

To grow:
Perennial herb. Grows to 2 ft. It’s leaves are heavily veined, light green
leaves with a lemony scent. It’s white flowers are unimportant and need to be

divisions. Self sows.

tonic effect on the circulatory system and heart, thus lowering blood pressure.
