Sarah Munro's Botanical Cucumber Facial Mask

Sarah Munro, the heroine in ONE DARK WISH--the next book in my Deadly Force series which comes out in September--is a historian who specializes in 17th century pirate history. Especially those pirates who plagued the southern colonial coastline from the Carolinas down to the Caribbean. This research brings her in direct conflict with the hero, ex-Green Beret Nate Walker. 

But before she meets Nate and the arms dealer who tries to destroy her life, she had a hobby--herbal remedies. One of the things Sarah has been studying from this time period is Rebecca Prioleau, a sixteen year old girl, who was accused of witchcraft and murdered in 1699. This witchcraft accusation, while totally bogus, was backed up by the fact that she known as a healer.

Over the years, while trying to redeem this unfortunate girl's fate, Sarah has collected and updated Rebecca's botanical recipes. And for the past few weeks, in anticipation of Sarah's book coming out, I've been sharing them here on the blog. I've included recipes such as Sarah's Soothing Salve and Lemon Ginger Tea.

Today's recipe is a Botanical Cucumber Facial Mask. It uses few all-natural ingredients and is super easy to make and use. 

Botanial Cucumber Facial Mask


  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 4 Tablespoons refined coconut milk fat*
  • 1 ounce aloe vera gel


  • Puree the peeled and seeded cucumber in the blender until smooth.
  • Put the coconut milk fat* into a small glass bowl and stir in the cucumber puree. 
  • Add in the aloe vera gel.
  • If mixture is too soft, place in the refrigerator for fifteen minutes. Then spread on face and neck for 20 minutes. 
  • Wash off with a warm cloth. 
  • If you have any leftover, it will keep in a sealed glass jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
  • *One of the easiest ways to find refined coconut milk fat is to buy a can of refined coconut milk and refrigerate it for a few days. Once it's thoroughly chilled, cup open the top with a can opener and scoop out the fat which has solidified on top of the liquid. You can still use the milk in other recipes that allow for skimmed milk.
