This mask isn't the prettiest, nor does it smell very appealing, but it has done wonders for my skin and leaves it very smooth. These ingredients are just a base, you can use almost anything you have on hand. I chose lavender oil because it heals acne scars, and dandelion, burdock root, and red clover because they have wonderful healing properties for adult acne. The parsley flakes also promote healing, as does the zinc. I take all of the supplements in pill form as well, and my complexion has much improved. There aren't any harsh ingredients, so I use this a few times a week and sometimes I leave it on longer. I also cleanse my skin before and after with pure glycerin soap. For scars, you can apply lavender oil directly onto skin with a q-tip and let it stay on your skin over night, this works for scars all over the body. This makes about 2 applications so you can either put half in the fridge for later or share with a friend, have fun!

What an interesting mask this was to prepare! I tripled this recipe and made this mask today! I used this on my face today and it feels very soft and smooth now. I substituted the lavender oil with jasmine oil since I had that on hand and I usually use this as a substitute. I did use yeast and that made this mask smell horrible, so I might not use it next time. I'm going to share some of this with my friend tomorrow! Till then, I will store this refrigerated in an airtight box. Thanks for sharing!
Oh I love how my face tingled. Of course I had my own mix of herbs and I used myrrh for the oil. I like how the mask dried on my face too. You are right about one thing for sure, It does not smell very appealing and you look like you have throw up on your face. Sorry for that description but it's true! lol.
