We got this recipe off a TV show years ago. The beauty expert (Diane Irons, the author of several beauty books) swore natural clay cat litter is made of the same ingredients as special clays found in $100 spa facials. We tried this and loved it.

Natural clay cat litter is made of clay formed into tiny pellets and dried. When shopping for a natural clay cat litter, check the ingredients for "sodium betonite clay" or "100 percent natural clay."


  • 1 bag cat litter (must be marked properly, see above)
  • Water
  • Drops of your favorite essential oil


Mix in a couple tablespoons of the cat litter with water and drops of oil (we find the oil helps make the experience somehow less kitty litter-ish)
Apply mask to face
Wash off after 15 minutes.
