I love fruits and veggies! Over the years I not only served up some delicious treats for my family. I started to serve my clients fresh juice potions for their skin and health. So today I am sharing one of those recipes with you!
My Cantaloupe 🍈 Crush!
All you need for this drink recipe is:
4 cups of chilled fresh cantaloupe
1 cup of cool 🍋 Lemon juice
1 tbsp. Local 🍯 honey
1 tiny piece of peeled ginger or grated ginger
I serve the juice in pretty glasses or in mini shot glasses.
😎If you want to make it a little tropical 🌴 or you’re entertaining at home. Add 1/4 cup of good rum.
Place cubes and cantaloupe, lemon juice,honey and ginger in a blender.
This aromatic spice filled cozy drink is a traditional drink with roots in India and must have in Ayurveda medicine. Like sipping a cup of hot tea it is so soothing and an anti-inflammatory. It will warm your body and spirit on a cold day! Or into the spring and summer it will bring you a healthier warm drink to add to your routine. Daily or weekly … enjoy sipping!
My clients are facing stress,digestive issues and more during these pandemic days and I shared this with them to help them feel a bit better. Some have tried this golden milky hued drink and liked it.
Here’s what you will need:
1 and 1/2 cups of milk or other milk type milk you prefer
1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
A sprinkle of black pepper
1 teaspoon of ground Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground ginger
If you want to sweeten you can add some organic local honey or even maple syrup will work well.
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a light boil. Lower the heat. Strain and pour in a cup. I like to use a hand held mini frother to make it more like a latte. Makes one cup.
Times are tough it’s is true. So make sure you take time for your health and YOU. Small simple things like this can make such a big difference. If this isn’t for you try making a delightful drink with Matcha green tea. Whatever you do please take care of one and only you!
Oh how I love to go to the Farmer’s Market and spread my shopping LOVE.
I also love the crunch and goodness of an apple. I like the green apples. But red are delicious too.You know what they say “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
I even scoop up and eat the rest of the apple left from making this mask.
Here is a recipe a client shared with me for a mask I have enjoyed for years. I like to use it on the face and neck especially around this time of apple picking year.
What you need to Make DIY this face mask:
1 fresh apple grated or pureed
2 Tbsp of crushed oats
1 Tsp of organic honey
Put all the above in a small bowl. Apply it to a clean face with clean hands or a facial mask brush. It may be a little messy for you. But so worth it. If you want to make it more moist add some bottled (not tap) water for a creamier consistency.
Leave this recipe mix on the face at least 15 minutes.
Beauty benefits include a gentle exfoliation while the apple and honey leave the skin hydrated,plump and glowing.
Please note: IF you are allergic to any of these ingredients do not use the ingredient you might be allergic to.
This natural face mask is great for normal to combination skin.
If you are looking for a product at a spa, skin clinic and online that packs a pretty beauty punch with the benefits of apples malic acid. Great for even the most sensitive he skin!

The company says “An Apple 🍏 🍎 a day will peel wrinkles away!”
Although I don’t have many wrinkles… I’ll take it.
My clients are crying as their lips and skin are so dry! But today it is in the 80’s in Florida so go figure I am actually sweating after picking rosemary from my garden for dinner.
Winter is not pretty nor kind to our skin!
So this is what I do for my clients skin OR recommend they give to themselves in a pinch while at home.
Honey Face and Lip MASK
Wrap the clients cleansed face with a warm steamed wet towel. Leave the towel on at least 3 minutes allowing the client to relax a bit.
Remove the towel.
Apply organic honey to the face and neck.
Leave on the face at least 10 minutes.
Remove the honey mask with a warm wet steamed towel.
Follow up with a Rosewater skin toner.
Apply a light moisturizer.
And a dash of an eye gel.
A sweet simple delight! Your clients will ❤️love!
* Please note: Ask the client if they are allergic to honey or anything ALWAYS do a patch test first. Oh and by the way, you may use this on this lips too. Great for smokers lips,dehydrated lips and peeling flaky lips. Add a dash of organic brown sugar and rub on the lips for an on the cheap lip scrub. My little miracle workers!
Sometimes the simple things found in nature and the farmers market can make all the difference!
My husband says “I kiss better than I cook” 😁 But I so enjoy entertaining,cooking and makeup! I also love this time of year and all the decor and recipes to celebrate fall.
Today I went to the store and discovered a potpourri of pumpkins 🎃 and more.
So to celebrate 🎊 this time of year here is a recipe to do for YOU and or on your clients too! You’ll be tempted to eat it but don’t. The room will smell divine while and after making this facial treat.
Pretty Pumpkin Pie 🎃 facial mask
What you will need:
1 can of pumpkin pie filling
1 teaspoon of honey
1 sprinkle of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Stir in all of the above in a bowl. What you will have is a creamy and dreamy gentle natural exfoliation mask. No harsh chemicals. I find even my clients with sensitive skin love to use this and have no issues.
You may use fresh pumpkin but I love using the can in a pinch!
*But please do a patch test on the inside of your arm near your wrist or a section of your face to see if you have a slight reaction. If you have allergies to these ingredients don’t use this D.I.Y.
I like to leave this on at least 10 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth. Afterwards use your facial toner and moisturizer.
Place remains in a small jam or condiments jar you recycled and you can use it again in a few days.
Sip a cold glass of fresh apple 🍎 cider and you’ll make the day even more delicious.
I love to engage and entertain my clients and I like to also do it with food. These energy bites are just the thing and the recipe ingredients boosts with fiber too. A friend of mine who is a guest Chef on TV Danette shared this oh so easy recipe with me. I hope you enjoy it too.
1 1/4 cups raw almonds
1 /14 cups dates (pitted)
1 Tbsp honey ( maybe a bit more)
Pinch of salt
Grind almonds and dates in food processor until fine ( a little coarse is ok, too) add honey and salt.
Process until well combined. …it should be sticky enough to form a ball.
Press down in a 8×8 pan lined with foil. Make sure to press down hard, so it really holds together. Let sit approx 1 hour. Pull foil out of pan, and cut into squares.
If it needs more honey to stick together, that is fine. You could use more dates in beginning if you like.
Enjoy for yourself between services with your clients, serving to your clients,family or friends. YUM!
