LETS GET STARTED
1. Floral facial steam
YOU WILL NEED (The ingredients below are per 6 treatments so multiply it for as many treatments as you’d like):
-3 100ml jars
-2/3 cup of lavender buds, dried
-1/3 cup of rose petals, dried
-2/3 cup chamomile flowers, dried
Mix up the herbs ad divide them into each jar (roughly half a cup each)
HOW TO USE:
• Remove make up or dirt by using a gentle cleanser • Place herbs in a heatproof bowl (use 4 tablespoons herbs per treatment – each jar is enough for 2 treatments) • Pour one pint of boiling water into a heat proof bowl (USE MOON WATER FOR EXTRA BENEFITS) • Place bowl on a sturdy surface (like a table) and lower face over the bowl (it’s usually best to sit in a chair that is pulled up close to a table) • Place a towel over your head to create a tent over the bowl (the towel helps the steam stay close to the face and not evaporate into the air so quickly) • Stay here for about 15 to 20 minutes- while you are here start by centring yourself, and then think about your intent and what you wish for the herb to bring to you, imagine the steam cleansing away any negativity.
BOOOM YOU ARE NOW CLEANSED AF AND SMELLING CUTEEEE.
2. Rose & chamomile bath bags
YOU WILL NEED (The ingredients below are per 3 treatments so multiply it for as many treatments as you’d like):
-3 Muslin bags

-1 ½ cup epsom salts
METHOD: Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Place 1 cup of mixture in each muslin bag. Tie the top of each bag to close tightly.
HOW TO USE:
To use bath tea bag, tie bag to faucet so the water runs through it as the bath fills. Once the bath is full of warm water, remove the bag from the faucet and let it float in the bath. Soak for at least 15 minutes - while doing so, remember to relax, centre yourself, remember your intent and what you wish to get out of this treatment and imagine the salts and hot water clensing away any negative energy.

galaxy tutorial nobody asked for! the texture and larger sparkle brush i used aren’t included here as i didn’t create them myself. i did include my two starcluster brushes (one of smaller/closer stars, and one of larger/farther stars), as well as the brush i use for actually applying color/blending. i hope this helps some of you!!
I haven’t had the time to do personal works for a few weeks and it’s so exhausting. It totally drains my creativity. So last night I decided to stop for a moment, get back in my comfort zone and just draw whatever I feel like drawing.
Take this as a friendly reminder - every now and then, no matter how much work and how little time you have, step back for a moment. Take even 15 minutes to just draw whatever you want. These 15 minutes won’t make you miss your deadlines for the week, but will certainly help you recharge and get creative and motivated again. <3
A random-ass sketch I did in school while waiting for class. I need to do this precious cinnamon roll some justice soon, but the number of unfinished sketches I have sitting in my laptop is too. damn. high. ; w ;
