In the first part of our new Clear Skin series, I share how to make a DIY deep cleansing mud with essential oils. This homemade natural facial cleanser cleans gently yet effectively and works great for all skin types.
DIY cleansing mud
The base is made of Ghassoul mud, a clay that’s rich in minerals and anti-bacterial. Blended into this mud are rose and geranium floral waters to moisturize, as well as sandalwood and red mandarin essential oils.
Grapeseed oil is light oil that doesn’t grease the skin and provides a nourishing boost of antioxidant vitamin E. The addition of finely ground coffee helps to exfoliate gently, which I recommend skipping if your skin is very irritated. You can download the recipe and a pretty printable label at the end of this post.

Print the label on DIN A4 or letter size self-adhesive or sticker paper and cut out along the grey outline. Adhere the label to your container. The label comes in different sizes, giving you more options when choosing a jar or container.
We recommend printing the labels on self-adhesive vinyl sheets. Vinyl sheets are water-resistant and will ensure the label stays pretty, and the colours don’t come off when exposed to water or humidity.
Vinyl sheets can be found in printing shops or online. They are available for inkjet as well as for laser printers and can be used in the same way as regular printing paper. We used Photo Paper Direct’s A4 Inkjet Creative Vinyl Stickers Matt to print our labels.
