Today is National Mud Pack Day so I thought it appropriate to post a recipe for a detoxifying DIY homemade Dead Sea mud mask. Dead Sea mud is chock full of minerals. Use this once a week and you’ll remain 29 forever. Well, that may be a bit optimistic, but at least your skin will look maaaaaaaaarvelous, dahling.

1/4 cup Dead Sea mud
4 drops of lavender or tea tree essential oils
1 tsp. honey (or calendula extract oil)

Warm the honey a bit so that it becomes more fluid. (If you choose to substitute with calendula extract oil, know that calendula is a wonderful anti-inflammatory.) Mix all ingredients together. Spread all over your face but not too close to the delicate skin under your eyes. Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes. Then, take a warm damp cloth to gently wipe it off. If you have dry skin, follow up with a moisturizer. If you have oily skin, leave well enough alone. Finally, look at your face in the mirror and admire your fine self.

By the way, my experience is that this Dead Sea mud will keep for quite a while in the jar. It will not get “yucky” even though it remains wet. There are minimal bacteria and other nasty things in the Dead Sea. This particular brand also contains natural grapefruit seed extract as a preservative.
