|Clay face masks are wonderful for removing excess oil, contaminants, and dead skin. Today we are going to make a clay mask.
Collect needed items:
Liquid Oil of your choice (I’m using Sunflower Oil)
Clay of Choice (I’m using Pink Kaolin)
Liquid Germall Plus
Fragrance or Essential Oil of your choice (I’m using Lemongrass Essential Oil)
Containers for finished product
56.34 grams Water
4.12 grams Hydrovance
9.39 grams Liquid Oil
3.47 grams Emulsifying Wax
2.07 grams Stearic Acid
23.46 grams of Clay of Choice
0.66 grams Liquid Germall Plus
0.05 grams of desired fragrance or essential oil
Weigh ingredients into your container except the clay, preservative and essential oil. Microwave for short bursts of time until the oils are melted. Mix ingredients together thoroughly and let cool until thickened. Add clay, preservative and essential oil, then stir. You may need a rubber scraper to scrape the sides of your container. Once everything is mixed together, fill your containers and then enjoy a relaxing time!
This clay mask is not as drying as most and will work well for most skin types. If you have extremely oily skin, try a different mask recipe, without additional oils. I’ll give a quick one tomorrow.
Next week is all about making the home air smell good. We are going to make room sprays and linen sprays! Don’t forget about the Monster Away Sprays for Kids!
Whoops! I forgot to mention that this mask will be in the Mother’s Day Gift Baskets! Don’t forget to enter the drawing!
