We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Barley is an excellent cleanser, both inside and out. When cooking barley to use in herbal skin care recipes, make sure to reserve the water as it makes a natural detoxifying drink. Add some orange or lemon juice to get the cleansing benefits of traditional barley water the natural way.


To make a purifying scrub for face and body, boil 125ml pearl barley in 500ml water. Simmer for thirty minutes then strain. Drink the barley water as above and allow the cooked barley to cool then use as a face scrub, face pack or body scrub.


Mix the cooked barley with natural ingredients to make cleansing face packs e.g. banana, mashed carrot, pulped tomato, honey.
