  1. Hmm, I’m yet too try it Wally. Maybe I’ll give it ago… I read somewhere that baking soda helps to loosen blackheads and trapped dirt in your skin.
    I found this recipe on [url]

    Blemish Mask removes excess oil
    2 tbsp bentonite clay
    2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    7 drops lavender essential oil

    Mix until smooth. Apply a thin layer to face and neck. Wait 20-30 minutes. Rinse well.

    Is that what you’ve been using?

  2. ^That’s the same mask Wally told me about a while ago. I’m still doing it to this day! But I now add some tea tree AND some emu oil to the mix. I figure that it’ll help carry it down further.

    How do you incorporate baking soda into this Wally?

  3. How do you incorporate baking soda into this Wally?

    I don’t quite know what you mean. I don’t really measure it out, I just add enough so that it, the bentonite clay, and water make a paste. I use baking soda because its a nice gentle exfoliant, which is good for my sensitive skin, and its really cheap!

  4. Hmm, I am going to give this a try. Do you combine baking soda and benonite together?

    Can you link me to somewhere I can learn more about this?

  5. Do you combine baking soda and benonite together?

    Yes. I don’t use a measuring utensil, I just try and pour about equal parts out, and then add water to it the baking soda+bentonite clay to make a paste

    Can you link me to somewhere I can learn more about this?

    I don’t have a link where it tells you specifically about using both bentonite clay and baking soda as a mask. I’ve used bentonite clay+apple cider vinegar+lavender oil as a mask before and been really happy, but it makes my face really red. I remembered that baking soda is a really gentle exfoliant, and I found a lot of information like this

    To loosen blackheads, combine equal parts baking soda and water in your hand and rub gently on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

    , so I figured why not combine them? This mask will still make my face red, but not AS BAD as the bentonite clay+lavender oil+apple cider vinegar. My skin usually looks good a day or two after I’ve done the mask.

  6. Have you used bentonite liquid instead of clay because I have already liquid here?

  7. I can’t do the vinegar+clay thing either, largely because the vinegar vapours rise toward my eyes and makes them sting and tear (Mudd’s original mask does this to me to for some strange reason).

  8. This is a bentonite mask I found at a local health food store. Do you think it will be as effective, or should I have gone with the real stuff?
