DIY Dry Oatmeal, Lavender, and Clay Mask…

Soothing Oatmeal Mask

Today, let’s make a “dry mask”.  This mask contains oatmeal, lavender buds, chamomile leaves, and french green clay.  Your loved one receiving this mask will simply add a liquid to a teaspoon of powder to make a paste.  It’s the perfect gift because it’s pretty in a clear glass jar, does wonders for any skin type and isn’t messy!

First let me say that this mask is amazing for pretty much any skin type.  Oatmeal is very nourishing as well as calming.  Lavender buds and the chamomile help to soothe inflammation as well as relax the skin.  Clay is amazing for pulling out impurities and drawing blood to the surface.  You can read more about french green clay HERE.  If you really want to make this an amazing mask, you could add a few drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil to help balance the skin.  You could add geranium for evening skin tone or tea tree for fighting acne.

You can add many liquids to form a paste.  Water is of course the easiest, but aloe, yogurt and honey also work!

Let’s get started!

This recipe makes a little over 1 ounce.  You will get about 3 masks from it.  You can double, triple or quadruple it rather easily to suit your gift giving preferences.

Also, if you want to skip the lavender buds, you could substitute lavender essential oil for the buds.  Just add a drop at a time until you get the scent you like.

IMPORTANT: Clay will bring lots of circulation to the surface of the skin and will leave the skin red for about 20 minutes after the mask has been removed.  I would advise you to leave the mask on anywhere from 10-20 minutes and rinse with cool water.  I used aloe vera gel with mine and loved the hydrating and soothing results!!

Seriously such an easy DIY and would be such a great gift!

Don’t forget a label!!  I made a label that you can save to your computer and print on labels on your printer.  (I use Avery labels and print from their site) But, if you have time, you should check out Stickyou.com-They are affordable, waterproof, allow you to customize your label to your exact size and you can print different labels on one page!  They ship pretty fast and the labels always come out vibrant!

  2. Thank you x

    I am inspired by you!!! I am in the process of creating skincare products to sell. Would you mind if I used this for my business?

    Also can you share an idea of rose serum with real rose petals? I will be trailing a few different methods to choose the one I am going with but wanted your opinion or if you have a method you can share?

    Lastly how long would you say this mask would last?

    Thanks x
