It’s still hot out there, so why not chill out in style with herb-infused ice cubes? Add some herb-infused ice cubes to your water, or apply topically to skin to help tighten pores, reduce inflammation, and add a glow.
Start by making herb-infused water. Pick the herb of your choice. It can be sage, thyme, mint, lavender…whichever herb you prefer. If you’re looking to apply the ice cubes to your skin, then chamomile, lavender, rose, and calendula have awesome reputations as skin-enhancing herbs.
If you have the herbs in essential oil form, then add 12 drops of your preferred oil to filtered water and voila, you’re done! You can also use dried herbs. Just steep ¼ cup of the herb, such as dried rose petals, in 1 ¼ cup of water, and then strain and let cool. You can double the recipe and fill a spritzer bottle with the remaining herb water to spray on your face whenever you need to cool down.
From there, mix together the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of herb water
- 1 cup of filtered water
- ½ cup aloe vera (optional)
Once thoroughly mixed, pour your blend into ice molds or trays. Freeze and enjoy!
If applying to your skin, roll the ice cubes over your face to tighten pores and brighten your complexion.
