For CLAY or MINERAL masks: Place a small amount of mineral or clay into a bowl.* Add a little water (about 1:1 ratio of mineral to water) and a drop or two of essential oil (if you like). Mix until the consistency of mustard. If it is too runny, add more mineral. If it is too thick, add more water. It is ok, and sometimes preferred, to let the mixture sit for 20 minutes or longer to "set". The mixture will be lumpy and slightly grainy in texture. Apply to face and neck with your fingertips. *Use a non-metal bowl and spoon (clay, ceramic, glass, wood, are all ok). You can even use a chopstick to stir it up!
After the mask has dried (around 20 minutes), re-moisturize your face with a wet wash cloth or warm water and then rinse off. Use a circular motion to exfoliate with the mineral as you rinse.
Follow with a clarifying mist and moisturize with an organic body butter or cream.
