Don’t be fooled this calendula soothing mask is simple but it is so soothing, cooling, and softening to the skin. Perfect for sensitive skin or skin that is needing a soothing touch after wind, sun, or harsh conditions, like a lot of nose blowing or airplane travel.
Calendula Mask Recipe
1 tbs of dried Calendula flowers
1tbs of whole oats
Water to mix
This mix makes enough for several masks. Store what you are not using in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
1.Grind the calendula and oats together into a fine powder. A coffee grinder (that is dedicated to herbs and not used for coffee) works best for this. Make sure to grind to a very fine powder.
2. Take a tablespoon of your powder and mix in about a tablespoon of water to form a paste. You can add more or less water to reach the consistency you want.
Masks can be messy. Tie your hair back and spread the paste evenly over your skin. Leave the mask on for 10 to 20 minutes.
While your mask is on, sit back and close your eyes. Take a moment to be in the moment with these herbs that are nurturing and healing your skin.
When you are ready rinse clean and follow with your moisturizer.
Using water as the liquid to mix the paste makes for a very cooling effect on the skin, but if you want you can substitute the water with Avocado Oil for a cooling yet more moisturizing effect.
