About a year ago, my husband bought me this fabulous piece of furniture for a late birthday present. I had been eyeing it for a couple years at a great local shop, and I knew exactly what I would use it for if ever I was lucky enough to take it home with me. So, when it finally made its way across the threshold and in the confines of my house, I immediately went to work at crafting my vision: my very own apothecary cabinet.
Since establishing my apothecary cabinet in my kitchen, I have experimented with a slew of tonics, tinctures, and the like. One of my most recent favorites is my “Homemade Refreshing Face Mask.” This mask is made with bentonite clay, known for its healing and detoxifying properties. To this clay, I add some invigorating organic non-alcohol witch hazel with aloe vera, and frankincense essential oil, which in my option is one of the best oils you can use on the regular.
So this weekend, pamper yourself with this treat 🙂
Homemade Refreshing Face Mask
In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons bentonite clay, 1 drop Frankincense, and enough witch hazel to form a paste. Mix slowly until a paste forms. With your fingers, smooth the clay over your face, being sure to avoid your eyes. Allow the mask to rest on your face for 5-8 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
