When finished, snip the bottom corner of the bag and squeeze the finished product into a jar just as you would squeeze frosting onto a cake or toothpaste out of a tube.

Variations ? Notes ? Warnings

  1. To make a similar product for darker skin tones, substitute Coconut Crush for Rose Petal Crush and substitute Cocoa Clay for Valley Mauve.
  2. For a lighter color without the oil control aspect, deleted the Valley Mauve Natural Clay entirely and increase the Rose Petal Crush.
  3. We recommend you package this product in a jar or squeezable tube.
  4. We recommend a 1 year shelf life as the natural Rose Petal Crush will degrade over time and may develop and odor.
  5. This product is flammable. Do not use near heat, flame or while smoking.
