Peppermint Chamomile Oatmeal Mask Recipe

This mask can be doubled or tripled easily and stored in a jar.  It has a long shelf life and can be prepared quickly. Your skin will glow after use.

Want an easy way to add dried herbs?  Head to the tea aisle at your local grocery store.  For this mask, all you need is some peppermint tea and chamomile tea. You may already have some in your pantry.

Peppermint Chamomile Oatmeal Mask
This recipe makes about 20 treatments   

1 cup oatmeal
    1/4 cup powdered milk (or try buttermilk powder or goat's milk powder)
    2 teaspoons (or contents of 2 teabags) dried chamomile
    1 teaspoon (or contents of 1 teabag) dried peppermint

Pour all ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until the oatmeal is ground into a fine powder. Done! Easy, right?

Store in a jar with a lid (I like mason jars for this) until you're ready to use.

To use: Mix one tablespoon powdered mask base with approximately two tablespoons warm water. Let the blended mask set in the bowl for two minutes to hydrate and take on a creamy consistency. Stir well. If the mask seems too thick at this point, add a bit more water.

Apply to your face using circular motions. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. Work off with a washcloth and rinse well.
