If there’s an end of summer re-hydration ritual that everyone woman needs, it’s the hydrating breast mask. As much as the sun and sea water are incredibly healing and rejuvenating, these elements also quite drying. Most of us aren’t in the habit of drinking enough water or oiling our skin on a daily basis. Maintaining healthy, hydrated breast tissue (and skin) helps keep the lymph flowing, reduces congestion, eliminates toxins and help oxygenate and circulate nutrients.

The lymph is made of 95% water and when it becomes de-hydrated, lymphatic congestion starts to occur and toxins start to accumulate. This is especially important in breast tissue.

Here are some easy ways to stay hydrated:

  • According to Ayurveda, sipping warm, purified water helps keep dehydration at bay.
  • Add some himalayan/sea salt to your water to help increase absorption
  • Oil your skin daily
  • Keep your adrenals strong and healthy. Adrenal fatigue is strongly correlated with dehydration.
  • Stress and woman’s menstrual cycle both increase the need for hydration.
  • Reduce caffeine intake as it dehydrates the body.


Mask Benefits

  • Hydrates and detoxifies breast tissue.
  • Nourishes breast tissue with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
  • Helps decongest the breast lymph
  • Boosts lymph circulation. Increased lymph circulation leads to less inflammation and greater healing.
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Incredibly healing for anyone suffering from breast imbalances such as cysts, pain, fibroadenomas, tumors, inflammation, mastitis, pain, swelling, tenderness, etc.





  • Castor oil
  • Rose Water
  • Kelp powder
  • Frankincense essential oil
  • Sandalwood essential oil
  • Fresh Aloe Vera
  • Seaweed sheets


  • Depending on your chest size you’ll need to adjust measurements accordingly.
  • Let the ingredients speak to and guide you. Start with smaller amounts  (1/2 tsp + ). I recommend intuitively combining the ingredients in quantities that feel right for you and will completely cover your chest area.
  • Apply to breasts, chest area up to collarbone and underneath armpits.
  • Wrap your chest with the seaweed sheets on top your mask to add extra moisture and to help detoxify tissue.
  • Visualize the the mask binding to the toxins and eliminating them via the lymph.
  • Apply your favorite breast oil afterwards and follow with a breast massage to clear toxins and stagnant energy.
