For this mask, I switch my normal herb to clay ratio to 50/50 for a heavy dose of herbal goodness! When you apply this much fresh ground herbs straight to your face you get the benefit of moisturizing your face with unaltered volatile oils from plants, such a rare treat!! The herb blend provides everything you could want from a skincare treatment. It deeply cleanses pores, stimulates circulation, exfoliates, and detoxifies your skin. Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial making it ideal for acne-prone skin. Reduces wrinkles, evens skin tone, and balances oil production. Plus it's high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals!
Directions: Mix one-two tbsp. clay with filtered water until clay falls easily off spoon. Avoid using metal when mixing since it decreases clays pulling ability. Apply on face and neck, 1-2 times a week. Leave on until the mask lightens in color, but before it is fully dry and flaking. Gently scrub off in small, upward circles. Follow with your favorite oil or alcohol-free moisturizer. *Optional; use honey, fruit smoothie, or apple cider vinegar instead of water, using caution near eyes.*
