RECIPE: Detoxifying Face Mask

There is no such thing as a one-size fits all face mask. Everyone's skin is unique, which is why I created three face mask recipes for you to choose from! This is our Detoxifying Face Mask Recipe, but we also have Hydrating and Clarifying recipes if those are a better fit for your gorgeous face.

Face masks are just one portion of our "Fresh Face Beauty" project. You can view the complete essential oil DIY project by clicking on the link above and you will find the individual recipes at the bottom of this post. 

Now, are you ready to get crafty? Let's do this!

If you are making this masks with friends, I highly recommend making the masks together then having everyone apply them AT HOME later. Activated Charcoal is great for cleansing your skin, but that stuff is no joke to get off. A lavender-scented washcloth, lovingly warmed in a crockpot for all of your attendees to wipe off their masks, is not going to do the job. You need to stick your face in the shower to get that black magic off. LOL!

SUPPLIES
2oz. Glass Jar
"Fresh Face" Printable Labels

2 tsp Activated Charcoal
1 tsp Bentonite Clay
3 tsp Aloe Vera Gel

STEP ONE - COMBINE YOUR BASE INGREDIENTS
Combine all ingredients with a WOODEN spoon. (The clay will absorb metal and become less effective.) The texture should be relatively smooth.

This mask is meant to be used within one day of creating. You don't want bacteria growing in your face mask. That defeats the purpose, am I right? This recipe makes a single face mask.

STEP TWO - CUSTOMIZE YOUR MASK
Now comes the fun part. It's time to customize your mask! Click here to discover the most beneficial essential oils for your skin type. Then, choose a few oils based on what you have on hand and get customizing! You can safely add up to 13 drops of essential oils to your face mask (2% dilution).
 
STEP THREE - SLATHER THAT MAGIC ON YO' FACE!

• Apply to your face, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
• Remove, while still slightly wet.
• Moisturize with Glow Serum.

NOTE
: When clay masks are wet, they’re adding good stuff to your skin while also drawing out impurities. As they get really dry, blood flow gets increased to your face and moisture is drawn back out!! DO NOT LET IT DRY ON YOUR FACE!
