More Info:
Calendula oil is added for dry skin, more Pumpkin for dry skin. No oil or wax is added for oily skin
and many kinds of masks can be made for normal skin or combination skin.


Benefits: Without the use of heavy waxes or oils, this nutrient-rich masque penetrates the stratum
corneum with an abundance of ingredients that hydrate, protect against free-radical damage, regenerate
collagen, balance the skin’s production of oil, and reduce any inflammation giving skin optimal health.
The precious essential oils including steam-distilled rose and Ylang ylang stimulate cell turnover and
encourage the skin’s regenerative properties.


Recommendations for use: Apply a generous amount to face and neck. Massage for 30 seconds.
After 10-15 minutes, remove with a moist cloth followed by many splashes of tepid water. Use as
often as needed.


Naturopathica also makes a great pumpkin mask formula.
