This simple beauty recipe for oily or acne-prone skin pairs powerful Tea Tree Essential Oil and Bentonite Clay with basic organic kitchen ingredients to leave your skin refreshed and smooth.
Plant-Powered Exfoliating Grains
4 tbs (60 ml) organic oats, finely ground
2 tbs (30 ml) organic almond meal
2 tbs (30 ml) bentonite clay
1 tbs (15 ml) organic lavender buds
12 drops organic tea tree essential oil
6 drops organic peppermint oil
- Crumble buds between your fingers, then combine all ingredients.
Ground organic oats are highly absorbent, hypoallergenic, but also help to soften the skin and promote cell turnover.
Organic almond meal, meanwhile, is more robust as an exfoliator, making it ideal for oily and acne-prone skin.
Clear your skin with powerful and porous Bentonite Clay, which is perfect for oily skin as it draws out toxins and tightens the skin.
Lavender buds, used alone or with other flower petals, lend a pleasant scent to your organic, homemade creations.
Acne-prone and oily skin loves Tea Tree Essential Oil, renowned for its chemical-free antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Peppermint Essential Oil prevents infections and naturally refreshses and cleanses the face.
TIP: Always remember to patch test any skin care product or ingredient before using a large amount – your skin matters!
