• The mix ratio is about 1:1 (I add about 1/2 of a dinner spoon full of powder, and about the same amount of water. Mix this in the small container I send along with your order.   

  • The mixture needs to be thin enough to pour. If it doesn't pour easily add a little more water. 

  • If you tend to have dry skin or want extra conditioning add up to 1/2 teaspoon of an oil, such as cleansing oil blend, (just not liquid coconut or castor oil) I'd recommend sweet almond oil, jojoba, hempseed oil, grapeseed oil.  Mix a little more. This will reduce the amount of bubbles but adds a lot of conditioning and will reduce any dryness that might result from using a foaming cleanser. 

  • Pour some of the mixture into your palm. Rub briskly together to create a creamy lather, or pour onto a washcloth.  The washcloth method is less messy, since the mixture is dark due to the charcoal, the washcloth greatly reduces the amount of cleanup if you are washing in the sink. 

  • Scrub your face and neck, rinse very thoroughly with quite warm water.

  • FOLLOW UP WITH FACIAL OILS: Pat some of the water off your face but don't dry off completely. Alternatively, pat completly dry, then spritz with pure hydrosol as a toner. Apply a generous amount of facial oils to damp skin, massage gently then allow to air dry. Massage periodically as your face is drying disperse oils and enhance penetration.

  • NOTE: Since you have now introduced water, the remaining mixture will need to be used or discarded in 3 days.  Clean the small jar well and allow to dry before making up a new batch. 

  • Keep the powder away from moisture.

  • Use 2-3 times a week.
