We tested my skin after using this face mask against my 3-month-old baby Ruth’s skin, and it’s a match! My skin was baby smooth and soft. Plus it creates a beautiful natural glow that you are going to love. I can’t wait for you to try it!

For this face mask, we are going to be using a reusable cotton face mask. Hooray for sustainability and eco-friendly! You can either use a cotton sheet mask like this one or make your own. 

Cotton Sheet/Cotton T-Shirt

To make your own, find a clean cotton t-shirt, and cut out a circle large enough to cover your face. Cut holes for your mouth and nose, and you’re ready to go!

Aloe Vera

Along with the sheet mask, we are going to be using aloe vera. For this recipe, either aloe vera juice or gel will work (but look at your ingredients to check for quality, you’ll want aloe vera to be one of the first ingredients listed). Aloe vera is natural, is cooling, is known to accelerate the healing of burns and inflammation, slows the aging of skin, is filled with antioxidants to fight sun damage, and is cell regenerative. Your face will thank you! 

Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend

Our Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend is also in this recipe. It’s made up of Tea Tree, Sandalwood, Juniper Berry, and Lemon Essential Oils to make your skin clean and glowing.

Distilled Water (Or Substitute)

This recipe calls for distilled water, but you can also try Lavender, Rose, or Geranium Hydrosol as a replacement.

Always dilute essential oils before using it topically (like we did in this recipe). Failing to do so can cause irritation. Check out this handy dilution chart we created for topical use. We recommend using a 1% dilution rate when using this oil for the face. 

Avoid using this recipe if you are pregnant or breastfeeding because of the oils in the Clear Skin Blend.

This recipe is safe to use with children 2+.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
