Peppermint Lavender Face Peel

Peppermint Lavender Face Peel

This face peel is great for relieving tension and headaches.  The lavender is calming and soothing, while the peppermint helps to clear the skin of excess oil, it also revitalizes and leaves you feeling refreshed.  This is great for all skin types, from oil to dry.


3 tsp Distilled Water

3 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted

1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil

1-2 drop(s) Lavender Essential Oil (I used my Lavender and Tea Tree Essential Oil)

Directions: Mix the essential oils with the coconut oil.  Then add the water and stir.  Put in the frig and let it sit just long enough for it to start hardening into a paste about 35-40 mins depending on how cold your frig is (parts of it will harden quicker than others so there may be areas of liquid oil still, but you can use it as long as there is enough hardened product to cover your face and neck if desired.  Apply using clean fingers, by working little bits in circles on the face.  The warmth from your face will melt the peel just a little, but it will harden again, as long as you don’t put too much on.  Use it sparingly.  Wait until the mask is dry before removing it, about 10-15 mins.  Make sure to relax while this peel hardens, that’s an order, hehe.  To remove it, peel it off gently and use water as needed to wash the rest of it off your face.  You can also wash with face wash to fully cleanse the skin, which I would suggest.  This makes enough for about 3 peels, you can store the extras in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
