Spot Treatment Dust Recipe

From time to time we all find unruly acne spots we were rather we didn’t. Take care of those spots with this herbal powder to speed up recovery time.


1 Tablespoon Kaolin Clay

1/2 Tablespoon Bentonite Clay

1 Tablespoon Baking soda

1 tsp Lavender Powder

3 drops Lavender Essential Oil

3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil


Combine ingredients with a mortar and pestle until essential oils are thoroughly mixed in.

To use: Wet finger and dip into powder. Mix powder and water on the back of your hand until you get a paste like consistency. Dab onto spots and leave on while you clean, do the laundry, read your favorite herb book or overnight. No time limit, for me, longer the better.

*This powder keeps the spot clean, dry, bacteria free and speeds up recovery time immensely.

Acne can be a nuisance but also an important health indicator. Learn more about how to incorporate herbs into your lifestyle to manage acne at the next Self Care Sunday November 18th.
