Faith Rodgers,The Little Herbal Apothecary Lafayette, Colorado
If Faith Rodgers were a medicinal herb, she says she’d be chamomile because it’s balancing, calming, and grounding—qualities she works hard to maintain while running her business and taking care of her three children.

Faith’s mission is to provide resources, information, classes, and clean, organic products to people who are looking for healthy options.

½ cup kaolin (a clay mineral) clay
½ cup apricot kernel meal or almond meal
1 tablespoon rosehip powder
1 tablespoon chamomile powder
10 drops geranium essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops clary sage essential oil
Add clay, apricot kernel meal (or almond meal), rosehip powder, and chamomile powder into a mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Add the drops of essential oil and mix well until the oils are fully incorporated into the powder. Store in an airtight glass jar for up to 1 year.
Mix 1 tablespoon of cleansing grains with water until you have a creamy paste. Gently exfoliate your face with the paste. Rinse, pat dry, and finish with a moisturizer. Once a week, you can also leave the paste on your face for 5 to 10 minutes as a facial mask to draw impurities from your skin. Rinse, pat dry, and finish with a moisturizer.
