How to use this product:
Add 1 teaspoon of dry mask powder to aromatic dressing bowl. Combine this with 1-2 teaspoons of ‘Liquid Activation’ and mix with bamboo spoon to form a thin paste. Use mask brush to apply to face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on until mask is dry to touch (10-15 minutes), then wash off with warm water. Leaving a face mask on for extended periods of time can start to rob your skin of the beneficial oils that it requires to balance and thrive.
Follow with a botanical mist and face oil/moisturiser to rehydrate skin.
In the unlikely event of skin irritation please discontinue use.
*Each 50ml glass vessel will provide you with approximately 20-25 full face mask applications.

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
Our recipes have been tested and trialed a number of times to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness. If you add your own flair to these recipes please use your common sense as to the safety, cleanliness and effectiveness of the final product. My Essential Alchemy will not be held responsible for any products made using our recipes, loss or injury that may occur from making/using our recipes or failed attempts to follow the DIY recipes.
We are proud to use ingredients of the highest quality and have full disclosure on everything that is used in our products. It is up to the consumer to check products for their full list of ingredients prior to purchasing, to ensure is does not contain any known allergy causing substances.
