PSA: When using essential oils, it’s important to take precautions especially since these DIYs do not call for a carrier oil to dilute them. The more, the better formula doesn’t apply here, so two drops of each essential oils are sufficient for each of the aforementioned recipes.

And because charcoal masks soak up the excess oil, they might leave your skin feeling dry. We recommend always following it up with a moisturiser for a plump-looking and glowing complexion.
