Magic Mint Face Mask

4 Applications/Keep refrigerated/ Use organic ingredients

Ingredients

 

1tbs lavender face wash/scrub (heaping Tbs)

1tsp honey

1tsp spirulina

1tsp jojoba oil

2 drops of tea tree essential oil

2 drops of peppermint essential oil

If needed add water to get the desired consistency.

If you don't have all the ingredients, make it anyway while adjusting the ingredients. Message me if you need help. 

Place all ingredients into a small glass storage bowl and is together well.

If adding water add it by the drop to avoid making the mask too thin. 

How to use: Do a small test patch on your neck below your earlobe to make sure you're not sensitive to the mask. Leave on 10 minutes to be sure. It's normal to feel a little tingling at first but it should dissipate. 

Once you've done your test patch you can put the mask all over face avoiding the eye area. If you do get it in your eye rinse with tepid water.

Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes.

Remove the mask by using a washcloth soaked in warm water. It might take a few cycles of rinsing the washcloth and reapplying to your face before the mask is removed.

Moisturize if needed.

One of the most amazing benefits of this mask is that it's non-toxic! So much better for you and the environment. If your dog licks your face, non-worries, it's all good. 

Look absolutely gorgeous!

To make the Lavender Face Wash/Scrub Mix dried 2 tbs lavender flowers, ground with 1/3 cup kaolin clay, and 2/3 cup organic oatmeal, ground. Mix together well and store in a glass airtight container. Add water to a small amount of powder to wash and exfoliate your skin morning and night!

Use a coffee grinder to grind up the lavender flowers and oatmeal.

To purchase quality ingredients go to Mountain Rose Herbs!
