Before you go any further, I know what you’re thinking … man this is a lot of random ingredients, right? Yes, I totally agree. But here’s the scoop: I bought all these ingredients over two years ago and have never used anything else! Plus if you’re in to DIY beauty, you’ll tend to use many of these ingredients and likely to have quite a few of these handy already.

INSTRUCTIONS

Steep 2 chamomile tea bags in about 4 oz of hot water and let sit for a couple minutes.

Microwave coconut oil in to a liquid (roughly 1 min).

In a glass bowl, mix all ingredients except tea. When opening up the charcoal capsules, make sure to have paper towel underneath as it can get dirty! (your hands will also get dirty, but it washes off easily with soap)

Slowly add the tea and continue to whisk until all mixed. At first the mixture will appear rather liquidy, but continue mixing for roughly 60 seconds. You’ll see the mixture change from black to a dark gray. Continue mixing until smooth & even color, removing all lumps.

It stores in the fridge, covered, for up to a month. I use at least once a week, washing off my face after 10 minutes (or as it starts to dry).

These make great Christmas gifts or even bachelorette party gifts!

For gifts I poured in to left over feta cheese containers (I LOVE cheese), add a label and ribbon! It makes a totally adorable and practical gift!

    I love clay and mud masks. I bet the charcoal is a great detoxifier for your skin. Pinned:)

    I have all these except the clay but I’ve been looking into buying some for a while now, I just need to bite the bullet and go for it! Can’t wait to try it 🙂

    Wow…another great use for essential oils! Coming to you from #WomenWithIntentionWednesdays!

    What an awesome gift idea, as part of a pampering gift basket! I’ve pinned it

    This looks great! I have activated charcoal powder (not in capsules). Do you think about 1/2 tsp would be equivalent to 10 capsules?

    I love peppermint! It’s so energizing, yet relaxing at the same time. Is that even possible? Lol! I think so!

    This sounds like it’d be terrific for your skin! Plus, saving money on expensive facial products is always a plus! #busydoinglife

    Hi! I’m thinking about making this for a bachelorette party to wear and for the guests to take home! How many “servings” can you get out of this recipe that you have? Thanks!

    • Lindsay @ Crazy Organized

      Awesome! It will be so fun for a bachelorette party! I was able to get roughly 12 ‘servings’ from one batch. It’s pretty think (which is great) so a little goes a long way! Hope you guys have a great time at the bachelorette party!

    How long does it keep out of the fridge, like if I were to make and ship it to someone?

    • Lindsay @ Crazy Organized

      Hey! I’ve actually kept my out of the fridge for 4 days (by accident) and the consistency was totally fine! I’m not sure how it would last longer than that, but I’m guessing it wouldn’t impact it much!
