Kaolin and Lavender Cleansing Face Mask

Posted on





Kaolin and lavender are combined here to make a deep-cleansing mask for normal skins. Apply the mask to cleansed skin and leave on for fifteen minutes. Wash off then tone and moisturise.



You will need:


50ml lavender water

50ml rosewater

10 drops grapefruit seed extract

75g kaolin

6 drops lavender essential oil

2 drops lemon essential oil

3 drops peppermint essential oil





Pour the lavender water and rosewater into a mixing bowl and add the grapefruit seed extract. Sprinkle the kaolin over the surface of the water. Allow the clay to absorb the water then stir to make a smooth paste. Add the lavender, lemon and peppermint essential oils and stir well. Spoon the mask into a clean, glass jar.


Grapefruit seed extract has been suggested as it is a preservative. If you intend using all of the mask straight away then there is no need to include a preservative.
