- 1/4 cup canna oil (or hemp seed oil) Check out our very own canna oil recipe here.
- 2 tsp spirulina powder
- several drops lavender oil (optional)
- a large makeup brush that you don’t mind getting gross (optional)
Here’s how you do it:
- Cut open the avocado, remove the pit, and put the green stuff into the blender.
- Add the canna oil, spirulina powder and essential oil.
- Blend until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
- Remove from the blender and put into a small dish. Set aside.
- To prepare your skin for maximum nutrient and moisture absorption, open up your pores with a steam treatment. Heat a pot of water on the stove until near boiling, pour it into a heatproof bowl, and set the bowl in front of you. Put your face over the bowl, and the towel over both your head and the bowl. Sit for about 10 minutes.
- Apply the mask liberally all over your face, taking care to avoid getting too close to the eye area.
- Let the mask sit for at least 15-20 minutes while you chill out.
- Wash it off, pat your skin to dry.
NOTE: If you don’t want to make cannabis oil, or don’t have access to the ingredients, you can use hemp seed oil, which has its benefits too. It has more essential fatty acids in it than any other plant. It also has large amounts of Omega 3, 6, and 9 which makes it the perfect ingredient to add to skin and hair care products.
