I created this natural Rhassoul clay mask recipe especially for those with maturing, dry and even sensitive skin. I use red Rhassoul clay as it’s suitable for all skin types. Mineral rich, cleansing and detoxifying, Rhassoul clay helps to rebalance dry flaky or mature skin, improve texture and elasticity and can help those suffering from eczema or psoriasis. It can also help to reduce those under eye bags. I combined the clay with botanical ingredients and natural essential oils as well as soothing colloidal oatmeal for the perfect mask for just about everyone.
Natural Rhassoul Red Clay Mask Recipe
2 oz. red rhassoul clay
1 Tablespoon lavender blossoms
1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers
1 Tablespoon calendula petals
1 Tablespoon colloidal oatmeal
12 drops bergamot essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil
12 drops frankincense essential oil
Using a digital kitchen scale, weigh out 2 oz. of clay into a container. Then measure out 1 Tablespoon each of the lavender, chamomile and calendula flowers and place into a food processor or coffee grinder. Grind into a powder and add to the clay. Measure out the colloidal oatmeal and add to the clay as well. Using a dropper or pipette, add twenty drops each of the bergamot, lavender and frankincense essential oils. Mix well with a fork, then place into an air tight container.
To use, simply mix two Tablespoons of clay with one Tablespoon of water, milk, green tea or aloe vera juice. Apply to face and allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Finally using a damp washcloth gently remove the mask and pat dry.
To gift, simply print out the recipe and labels here and apply to your containers of choice. I bought these fun little jars from JoAnn Crafts for a dollar each. I think they would be perfect inside of a gift basket as a Mother’s Day gift with other natural homemade bath and beauty products. Or tuck them inside your beauty conscious girl’s stocking as a Christmas gift. Alternately, they’d also be perfect tucked into a spa gift basket as bridesmaids gifts.
