Face Mask: You can create a facial mask by combining the jar of French yellow clay with 10ml of lukewarm water. Then, add 10-15 drops of the almond oil and mix well. Apply to your face, wait 10-15 minutes until it dries and then wash off for a purifying mask.
Facial Oil: To create a natural facial oil, start by choosing your carrier oil. Both the argan oil and the sweet almond oil can be used as a carrier oil. Using 5ml of carrier oil, add 1-2 drops of your chosen essential oil. You can choose from the bergamot, frankincense, or lavender oil to add as an essential oil. Choose whichever essential oil is best for your particular skin care concerns.
Facial Steam: For a revitalizing facial steam that can help clear airways and relieve stuffiness from allergies or colds, use the eucalyptus oil as a facial steam. First, boil 3-4 cups of water until it has reached a rolling boil. Then, pour very carefully into a large bowl. Let cool for a few minutes before adding 3-4 drops of eucalyptus oil. Place your face above the bowl, taking care to not be close enough to the steam to burn. Put a towel over your head and the bowl and breathe in the vapours for 15 minutes for a relaxing, invigorating facial steam.
Facial Toner: The witch hazel can be used to create a facial toner by pouring 5-10 ml into the beaker. You can also choose to add a few drops of the essential oil of your choice and mix well to make a scented version. You can use it by applying it to freshly washed skin with a cotton ball.
Lip Conditioner: For a deep conditioning lip treatment, apply 1-2 drops of the argan oil to the center of your palm. With your finger, softly pat it into your lips for a deeply moisturizing treatment. Take care not to ingest it. For best results, try using it before bed to leave on overnight.
Makeup Remover: To create your own natural makeup remover, simply add 4-5 drops of argan oil or witch hazel to a cotton pad and swipe over the areas from which you’d like to remove your makeup. Try using this to remove your makeup before applying your homemade face mask or face oil.
Spot Treatment: You can create your own natural spot treatment at home by mixing one drop of lavender oil with one drop of argan oil. Simply apply to the affected area on the face as a spot treatment to help fight the blemish.
Under Eye Treatment Patches: You can create cooling under eye patches to help reduce the look of dark bags or to help reduce puffiness. To make them, simply take a cotton pad and cut it in half. Then, dampen them with a few drops of lukewarm water before soaking them by adding witch hazel a few drops at a time until saturated. Once they are soaked, place them in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to use them. Simply place the cooled patches under your eyes for 10 minutes to help reduce under-eye puffiness and soothe tired eyes, ensuring not to get the witch hazel directly into your eyes.
