- 3 TB Manuka Honey
- 1 TB Turmeric
- Mix together and store in a cool dark place in a covered container for 2 weeks.
- Apply to body, face or hair and massage in. Let sit for up to 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
- Use a non toxic soap (Dr. Bronners soaps , herbivore botanicals bar soaps or Tata Harper soaps would be my brands of choice) to wash skin and hair 2-3 times to remove the yellow tint of turmeric. Apply nontoxic oil (coconut oil, shea butter or Tata Harper oil) on skin after washing. Skin will be soft and moisturized.
I use this mask on my face and body once a week to keep my skin clear!
I use this mask on the tips of my hair when I am applying it to my body. I have dark brown hair so the turmeric doesn’t stain my hair. I am not sure what the turmeric would do to blonde or light colored hair: I would not recommend applying this mask to those hair types.
*please use organic ingredients, if possible. And be wary of processed honey; make sure to buy raw honey.
