How to make a homemade rosehip seed oil clay mask


Ever have an essential oil lying around, but not sure what to do with it or how to use it?

That’s what happened to us here at HL&S. We had some rosehip seed oil, which is high in vitamin C and antioxidant with anti-aging properties, and decided to play with a clay mask. After all, rosehip oil is milder than other essentials like tea tree and lavender as a base, so we went to town making a soothing mask (or cleanser if you rinse it off quickly) for sensitive skin.

Here’s what you do:

1. Mix together 1 tablespoon of Redmond Clay or another similar white mineral clay, 3 teaspoons of rosehip oil, a few drops of lavender oil and a teaspoon of raw honey. This makes enough for about 3-4 applications. We used lavender oil for its astringent properties on oily skin, but feel free to sub for another – sandlewood or grapeseed, for example.

2. Add warm water until the mixture is creamy, and apply to your face after you’ve removed makeup. Massage in a circular motion around your face. Leave on for 15 minutes for deep cleaning or wipe clean with a warm washcloth.

3. To preserve the remaining mixture, add a few drops of lemon (which is also astringent and refreshing). Voila!
