Galbanum & Manuka Honey Egg White Face Mask


I found a tub of dried egg whites on sale at the grocery store and tossed it in my shopping cart with plans to use it for crafting an egg white mask.  I like the pore tightening and drawing properties of the egg whites when they dry on my face.  I notice an immediate, albeit temporary reduction in pore size too.  I normally add in active Manuka Honey and hydrosol.  This time I added in my recently purchased Galbanum Essential Oil. Apply a thin layer to the face and neck and allow to dry for about 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and your face will feel wonderful.  I  use this mask three days in a row and the recipe will provide for enough.  Enjoy!!!

 Simply measure 8 grams of dried powdered egg white into a small bowl.

Next, measure in 10 grams of Orange Blossom hydrosol (or your favorite). Whisk to combine into a smooth paste.

Add in 5 grams of Manuka Honey (or your favorite local honey). Mix well.

Finally, add in 20 drops of Galbanum Essential Oil. Mix well.  Using a foundation brush, apply a thin layer to clean dry skin.  Allow to dry completely (about 30 minutes). Rinse with warm water.  Avoid eyes, nose and mouth.
