Brighten Your Skin With Camwood



Also known as African Sandalwood, it has been used for centuries by Africans for skincare. If used properly, it will brighten your skin wonderfully.

Here's a simple recipe that will have your skin glowing in no time! :)

You'll need:
  • Honey                    
  • Camwood powder
  • Ripe Banana.

  1. Mash or blend the banana until it has formed a smooth paste
  2. Add the honey and camwood
  3. Mix well
  4. Using circular motions, rub into skin.
  5. Leave for 30 minutes
  6. Rinse off mixture. You can use a little soap to wash off the camwood properly.

NOTE: You can choose to use to use this mixture on your face only or the whole body.

Good Luck!

    1. Hi!
      Camwood is reddish/orangish brown in colour just like in the photo above.
      Yes, it does stain.
      However, I would advise you to use it sparingly because, it colours easily.
      Hope I've answered your questions?

    1. Camwood is actually called African Sandalwood so in a way, yes, you can use it as sandalwood to a certain extent.
