What’s in This Clear Skin Jelly Face Mask Recipe?

Distilled Water

The water serves as the carrier for all the other ingredients. Thinking of making this recipe a bit more fancy? Use floral hydrosols!

Xanthan Gum

To achieve the thicker, jelly-like consistency, we used xanthan gum which is a natural thickening agent.

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is a carrier oil that dilutes the essential oils and offers many benefits to the skin. It is moisturizing and is full of vitamins A, B, and E!

Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend

Infused with Tea Tree, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Juniper Berry, and Lemon Essential Oils, Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend will soothe your skin from redness and blemishes, making it look and feel nourished and healthy.

Geogard ECT Preservative (optional)

Geogard ECT Preservative is a broad-spectrum natural preservative that protects organic products from bacteria, yeasts, and molds. This can extend the shelf life of your face mask up to 9 months.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend contains some phototoxic oils but is unlikely to be phototoxic in the amounts used.

Some essential oil recipes are not generally safe to use if you are pregnant. Consult your doctor prior to use.

This recipe is safe to use with kids aged 2+.
