Licorice Root //
The root of the licorice plant is a cooling herb that can fade dark spots and brighten a complexion. Licorice contains a compound called glabridin, which has been shown to inhibit the enzyme that causes skin to darken in response to sun exposure. Studies have also shown that topical application of licorice can help with itching, swelling, redness, irritations and inflammation.
Lemon Peel //
Lemon peel is rich in essential oil and vitamin C. When used topically, lemon can help fade age spots and brighten a complexion.
White Clay //
Also known as kaolin clay, white clay is a natural clay high in silicate. It is the gentlest of all clays, gently drawing out impurities without dying the skin of its natural oils. When applied topically, it can stimulate circulation, detoxify and gently exfoliate the skin.
Oats are just amazing for the skin! They contain saponins that gently cleanse. They are rich in anti-oxidants which help prevent premature aging. They also have strong anti-inflammatory properties, great for problem skin. Oats are also a gentle exfoliant.
Chamomile Flowers //
Chamomile is a small white and yellow flower that is high in flavonoids, terpenoids, oxides, and azulenes (chamazulene is what gives the essential oil its beautiful blue color). It has antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antibacterial effects. It is a powerful skin healing and anti-inflammatory herb.
Aloe Vera //
Research shows that aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial effects. It contains polysaccharides and sterols which help bind water to the skin. Aloe vera is also known for its skin healing and anti-irritant properties. Applied topically, aloe will help speed up healing, calm irritations, reduce redness, clear breakouts, improve elasticity and moisturize the skin

Mix a small amount of the mask (about ½ a tbsp.) with about ½ tsp of water, milk, and hydrosol, one of our toners or herbal tea until you create a thick paste. Add more liquid if necessary. It is recommended to start with less liquid than you think you need, and then add more as needed. Apply paste to clean face and let dry (10-15 minutes). Remove by rinsing with warm water. Follow by cleansing the skin with one of our toners and a cotton pad. Finish with a facial oil or balm. For best results, use after an herbal steam.
For dry skin: Try mixing with honey, milk, rose water, rose/chamomile tea or our Rose Hydrating Toner
For combination/oily skin: Try mixing with honey, green tea, diluted apple cider vinegar, witch hazel hydrosol, orange blossom water, or our Neroli Clarifying Toner.
Masking is not just about skin care, it is also about self-care. Before mixing your mask, take a moment to prepare your space for comfort. Dress in some comfy yet pretty clothes, or prepare a warm bath with minerals and hydrating coconut milk. Settle in with some tea and a good book, soak in the bath, or take an extra-long shower. Take this moment, while the mask is working, to decompress and be in the moment. Take a few deep breaths, and thank yourself for taking the time to take care of you.
