Superfood Mask + Scrub
I feeling like I now understand why Ostriches stick their heads in the sand. They must love the exfoliation! ? This mask feels a bit like I’m rubbing a beach all over my face…but in a good way. At first, I was a little surprised at how abrasive it can be, but it’s worth it.
The mask needs to be mixed with a liquid. Graydon suggests a creme cleanser or anything from your kitchen. I decided to take a little creative liberty and use a facial oil. One capsule and about 10 drops of oil mixed, scrubbed into the skin, let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes, then scrub away with a wet washcloth. Wow! I felt like I had a new face. My skin was so soft. For a couple of days after I felt like my skin looked more radiant and healthy. This is something I could easily use a couple times a week.

It’s not really green. Maybe the smallest hint of a sage color. But the ingredients are green. With tons of green vegetables and herbs in this moisturizer, your skin gets all of the superfood benefits imaginable: detoxification, nourishment, inflammation reduction, and antioxidants.

Germs Away AromaBlend
I love germ-killing essential oil blends. My favorite is Young Living’s Thieves. Graydon’s Germs Away blend appears to be a mixture of Young Living’s Thieves and Purification and then some. For me, the lemongrass was the most powerful scent.
