- You can simply use just epsom salt on wet face & work in & let sit till dry then wash off & rub in raw coconut oil,
- I have also used the Epsom salt mixed with the coconut oil together on skin 3 parts epsom salt to 1 part coconut oil.
- You can also try: Epsom salt with ground pink salt, Epsom salt with borax, epsom salt & baking soda, Epsom salt & honey, Epsom salt is awesome.
- 1/4 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp castile soap
- 1/2 to 3/4 tsp activated charcoal powder
- 1 to 5 drops of essential oils of choice
- Add 1/4 tsp raw honey
- Mix together in small bowl, apply to slightly wet skin/face & rub like you would with soap, rinse off or let sit a few minutes & rinse off.
- I mix right in my hand by adding to one palm then rubbing together.
- I also like to wash skin, then apply warm/hot damp cloth, lay over skin, let sit about 30 seconds then use the wet washcloth to clean the wash off.
Vapor rub/Chest rub:
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 to 2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
- 1 to 2 drops Pine essential oil
- Or use 1 to 2 drops Thieves/Germ Fighter instead of the eucalyptus & pine or use all 3 at 1 drop each
- Mix together in hand, apply to chest, throat, back, sinuses.
