DIY Anti Ageing Sandalwood Mud Mask

Sandalwood is one of those products that has a "million and one" uses. Not only can you use the oil extracted from the heart wood of the tree, you can also use Sandalwood powders and bi-products such as sawdust to maximise the benefits of Sandalwood. 

Sandalwood is often used to treat acne, dry skin, dull and ageing skin. It cools and calms irritated skin and is known to reduce redness and inflammation. Sandalwood also has powerful anti-ageing benefits and antioxidants. 

You can use Sandalwood for skin applications in many different ways such as a Sandalwood 'Mud' Mask - an ancient way to use sandalwood powder to settle irritated, inflamed skin and reduce redness.

 For this recipe use Sandalwood Superfine Powder as this powder has higher oil content than the Incense powder.

 

 

Sandalwood also moisturises so you may find you don't need to moisturise after or may just add a light application of moisturiser.
