To make this volcanic ash mask, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Volcanic ash clay or bentonite clay.
  • Floral water or herbal tea.
  • White clay.
  • Distilled water.
  • Jojoba essential oil.
  • Vegetable glycerin.

The necessary steps to prepare the volcanic ash mask:

  • Make sure your herbal tea or floral water are ready. You can even prepare these two ingredients a couple of hours before making the actual face mask. Put all the other ingredients on a table and weigh them to obtain the proper amounts: 30 percent volcanic ash, 20 percent distilled water, 25 percent white clay, 12 percent floral water, three percent jojoba oil, and ten percent vegetable glycerin.
  • Take a mixing container and put both volcanic ash and white clay in it. Use a harder spoon to mix it. You can even use your hands but make sure to wear gloves.
  • Continue the process by pouring all the liquid ingredients: herbal tea, distilled water, and vegetable glycerin.
  • Use the blender to combine them smoothly, and eliminate all the lumps. Go on until a smooth paste is formed. Now, you can also add your essential oil. I usually use jojoba oil, but you can add whatever oil you want. After adding the oil, stir the paste manually.
  • Your volcanic ash mask is now done, and you are ready to store it in several jars. Put the lids on top of the jars and always stick a label to remember what the jars contain.

Putting It All Together

A volcanic ash mask has a wide range of benefits for your skin and health. The above-presented recipe is good for your face, removing dead cells and fighting against acne. Your skin’s toxins will be absorbed almost instantly. Clean your face, then apply the mask in a thin layer. Wait for about 15 minutes and remove it with lukewarm water. Don’t forget to apply a moisturizer cream afterward. All this process will speed up your complexion’s healing process due to the mask’s antibacterial properties.
