DIY Mineral Mud Mask

I love using this homemade Mineral Mud Mask.  It is like escaping to a spa, without leaving home.

The Dead Sea Mineral Mud in this recipe is not the same kind of mud you may find in your backyard.  All I find in my Florida backyard is sand.  ;o)  Dead Sea Mineral Mud is loaded with wonderful rich elements, that include Dead Sea salts and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

Mineral Mud Mask
1 Tablespoon of Dead Sea Mineral Mud
2-3 Drops of Spearmint Essential Oil
3-4 Drops of Rosemary Essential Oil
3-4 Drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
In small bowl combine the dead sea mud and essential oils.  Mix well to combine the oils with the mud.
Apply a thin layer directly on your face, avoiding your eyes, nose and lips.  Leave this on for a intensive moisturizing treat for up to 15 minutes.  Rinse and wash the mask away with warm water and a soft cloth.  Follow up with your favorite toner and facial moisturizer.

In just a few minutes after applying this mask I feel a tingling effect.  As the mud starts to dry, I feel my face tightening.  After I wash the mud treatment off my face, I am always happy with the results.  My face looks fresher, brighter, smoother and is super soft.  

  • Rosemary essential oil can help wake up tired or mature skin, helping it appear healthier and younger looking.
  • Frankincense oil is one of the best essential oils for your face, as it helps to keep your skin looking youthful and firm.
  • Applying a facial mask 1-2 times per week can drastically improve the quality of your complexion.
  • This mud mask is lightly exfoliating and unclogs pores.
  • If you have oily skin or acne add a spoon full of green clay to this recipe to draw out the oily and impurities.
  • After you remove this mask spray your face and neck with Facial Toner, and apply Shea Butter Facial Lotion to restore a natural balance.
  • Dead Sea Mineral Mud is available for purchased in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks for stopping in and visiting my blog.  I am happy that you visited my little corner of the web, and I hope that you will stop by often.
Smiles, Paula

  7. Oops! I just saw the answers to my question. Can you remove that part of my post? I don't have a blog - yet! - so I got distracted trying to figure out how to post as a non-blogger. =P Currently, I'm more of a Pinterest gal and love pinning your recipes! ~Debbie
