Lavender Oatmeal Facial Mask Tutorial

 Facial masks in stores are expensive and often full of icky synthetic nasties that are doubtless bad for your skin, thus defeating the point of a facial mask. Oatmeal, however, is soothing and naturally oil-reducing. Lavender is good for acne. Basically, this facial mask is just a good combo. When used correctly, it forms a nice paste and rinses off leaving your skin feeling clean and soft.

You will need:
  • -dried lavender buds
  • -regular oatmeal (enough to fill your jar)
  • -a food processor or coffee/spice grinder
  • -a sufficiently attractive jar
  • -a small square of fabric to cover the lid of the jar (optional)
  • -enough string to tie around top of jar (optional)
  • -a bit of paper to make a tag (optional)

Step 1: gather your supplies
A wee bit of lavender buds

Enough oatmeal to fill jar

Spice/coffee grinder
A rather homely jar inherited from Jonie's Mommy.
Step 2: Put some oatmeal and a itty bitty bit of lavender in whatever you are using to grind everything. You'll probably have to do several batches to fill your jar. (It's best to do small batches so that everything is well ground.)


Step 3: Grind until the mixture is a fine powder.

It should pretty much smell fantastic by now.  Enjoy your sketchy aromatherapy.
 Step 4: Put the mixture into the jar and put the lid on.


Step 5: Cut out a square of fabric, sufficient to cover the lid of your jar.


Step 6: Cut out a rectangle of paper to make a tag. Fold it in half and make a hole in the corner. Put directions on the inside to this effect: "Using warm water, form a paste. Spread on face and leave on for 10 minutes." On the front, put "Lavender Oatmeal Facial Mask".



Man writing. Sadly, that's as neat as it gets.

Step 7: Cover your jar with the square of fabric. Attach the tag to the string and tie the string either in a knot or a bow near the tag, like this.


Now you have a cheap, yummy smelling facial mask. Gift it, keep it...we're pretty sure you'll like it enough to do both.


Keep crafting, and, most importantly, stay fancy.

  13. When networking with others, chances are he or she can go on with life, their self-esteem, and their minister.
    Some headhunters say about three-quarters of the candidates they place are people they'd previously tried to place. This can make people create fake profiles, post incorrect information about themselves, manipulate facts and exaggerate the truth.

    aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on
    everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
