  1. Oh crunchy thanks for sharing your routine. I’m actually working on putting together a post for my daily routine. Maybe I’ll finish it this week.

    The difference between us is daytime is for speed over at my house. I don’t have as much time in the morning so I save the long drawn out facial treatment for the evening. Plus, it’s just a great way to unwind :-)

      See? I knew I was weird. For some reason, taking a lot of time to do it at night stresses me out instead of winds me down. I think I’m just so ready to fall into bed, I resent it or something, y’know?

      I’m SO curious to see your routine! I’d love more ideas. I’m totally prepared to incorporate new ones into mine.

  2. I love this post! I didn’t realize I needed this info until I read it. I was thinking, ahhh, that’s how it’s done, while reading it. Thanks! What do you clean your face with prior to doing the baking soda/water? Do you do it in the am or pm? I’ve been doing it at night, but as I wear makeup daily, I use the oil cleansing, and it seems weird to rub it off, ya know?

      I usually do it mid-morning, a couple of hours after I’ve done my morning stuff, and then I’ll just do a spritz of rosewater afterwards to cool it and give it a little moisturizing. Then I just let my skin completely breathe that day. But you could do it however you want – at night after you’ve cleansed and before you tone and moisturize, y’know?

      I oil cleansed again last night. Man. If it didn’t seem so unnecessary on days when I wasn’t wearing makeup, I would do it every dang day. LOVE the way my skin feels this morning. Isn’t it the best? One of those things where you’re like, “Five years ago, I would’ve thought this was crazy. What’s wrong with me?”

  3. Awesomeness all the way around. I have none of these ingredients so I’ll be shopping. I am really curious about the moisturizer. I have never needed much of one, but I am a few years ahead of you on the wrinkle curve.

    Any thoughts?

      Vitamin E.

      I Love Vitamin E.

      Seriously, in the winter, I slather it on where the crow’s feet are starting to make an appearance at the corner of my eyes. SO simple and effective.

      I also use emu oil often, and rose hip seed oil. Those are two “musts” in my nightly moisturizing oil mix.

      I should really get on this, right? Making it again and writing it down. But those three things – perfect to get you started. You could just make a nightly moisturizer out of those and be ahead of the game.

  4. Thanks for the regime.

  5. You make it seem easy-peasy!

  6. What’s the shelf life of the scrub? Also, what else can I use the clay for? I went on a buying spree at Mountain Rose Herbs and ended up with a huge thing of clay, aloe vera gel, and tons of dry flowers/herbs…now I’m not sure what to do with it all, other than the herbal sachets recipe of yours. Help! :)

  7. It would be fascinating to have an update for this post! (I notice you don’t mention using honey anywhere in there . . . ) ;)
