What You Should Know About Using Essential Oils For Face Mask DIYs

Let's Talk About Safety 

Now we know you probably excited to start incorporating essential oils into your skincare routine but there are some things we should go over...after all safety always comes first!

Using the wrong essential oils or not following safety guidelines to dilute the oils can result in serious skin reactions and even chemical burns. Dilution is the most important factor when it comes to using essential oils in your skincare routine. Essential Oils contain highly concentrated properties of the plant that they are derived from, so they should never be applied directly to the skin due to their volatile nature.

Keep it Quick, Easy and Fun!

Trust us, a DIY facemask can be a relaxing and fun ritual. One good thing is it isn’t time-demanding. Mixing the ingredients and applying shouldn’t gulp more than about 30 minutes.

After application, it's best practice to lay down comfortably, with your feet up. This position promotes healthy blood flow, particularly to your facial region. Boosting blood circulation allows the essential oil to penetrate your skin easily – and that’s where the magic begins! 

To spice up the moment even more, you could light up your candle and push play to your favorite music.

Clean Face For Clean Results

But before you start applying your face mask, ensure there are no residual makeups on your face. Gently wipe off excess oil and other impurities for better effect.

I, for one, find that a brush works best for applying my essential oil face mask. Alternatively, you can use your [clean] hands as well to apply.

Beauty of Patience

While at it, declutter your mind and allow positive thoughts flow through.

It’s a general rule to allow the mask sit on your face for at least 10 minutes or till it dries – whichever happens first.

After the recommended wait time, you can wipe off your face with a warm, damp clean napkin – better still, rinse away with warm water. Then, splash cool water on your face to close the pores. Then, pat your face with a cloth to dry.
