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...:)

Cucumis sativus



Cucumber is useful in natural skin care for its astringent properties. It is added to cosmetics for its tightening and toning benefits. It is soothing, calming and cooling and helps the skin to recover from the stresses of being exposed to the elements.


A slice of cucumber placed over the lid of each eye when tired or sore will have a calming, brightening effect. It also has a lightening and softening effect on the skin and can be added to creams, soaps, ointments and face packs.


It can be used in its natural state if it is to be used up straight away, however always add a preservative when adding natural organic plant matter to skin care products, refrigerate the product and use within a few weeks.
