Make Your Own Bentonite Clay Mask

March 12, 2018

There’s something a bit special about making your own beauty products. And when they’re as easy to make as this cleansing and nourishing bentonite clay mask, you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before.

Great for all skin types, it can also be customised with your favourite essential oils. This recipe makes enough for one facial mask and should be applied to skin at least once a week for best results.

Learn how to use essential oils SAFELY and for most benefit
Essential oils are potent and offer most benefit when used correctly. Did you know? Each oil possesses particular chemical make-up and the application is often specific to the particular oil. Therefore, it's important to understand how to best use an oil to suit your particular situation.

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 drop Frankincense oil
1 drop Lavender oil
