As amazing as basil can be as a food, it has a wealth of skincare benefits too! If you already have a face wash and/or mask that you can’t live without, use the recipes below to “spice” your routine up once in a while!


Rinse a cup of fresh basil leaves then go ahead and crush them to release their natural oils. You can use a mortar and pestle or your hands. Once it has created a paste you can mix the basil paste with a little bit of water, to create a face wash, apply and rinse.


Or you can create a face mask by adding 1 teaspoon of plain, organic yogurt. Sit for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

┬áThe basil’s natural oils help to lighten dark spots and the vitamins in the yogurt promote circulation as well as prevent acne.
