DIY Volcanic Face Mask

activated charcoal mask


  • 1 tbsp activated charcoal
  • 1 tbsp bentonite clay (we like Azetc Indian Healing Clay brand)
  • a few drops of tea tree oil
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. To a bowl, add your activated charcoal and bentonite clay.
  2. Heat up 1/4 cup of water and slowly pour the warm water over the charcoal and clay.
  3. Stir slowly using a wooden spoon. If you use a metal spoon you will deactivate the active ingredients in the bentonite clay.
  4. Now add in your tea tree oil and stir.
  5. The consistency should be that of a thick cream.
  6. Apply all over your face and neck and leave on for 15-20 minutes or until the mask has dried on.
  7. Remove using a soft, wet washcloth. Rinse off any residue and follow up with a moisturizer.
