Chamomile and Oat Facial Cleaner

This is a quick and easy facial cleaner. It is not a make up remover, but it will help genitally clean the face. I found this lovely replace to my normal cleaner, which had run  out here.


Ingredients

1/4 cup dry rolled oats (uncooked)
 1 tsp of organic chamomile flowers, ground 1 teabag of organic chamomile tea OR 4 drops of chamomile essential oil
1 Tbs. bentonite clay )
Glass jar, for storing the facial cleanser (I used an empty E.F.L cleanser jar)


Instructions


  • Use a grinder, I used food processor,( but a coffee grinder, spice grinder or Magic Bullet)  to grind the rolled oats into a fine powder. It should be soft and powdery, not gritty. (1/4 oat flour could be used in place of this.)




  • In the food processor add 1tsp of the oat powder with 1 tsp of chamomile flowers. Then grind until the chamomile is a fine powder, then transfer to the bowl. If  you are using  the essential oil, skip this step and add the oil directly into the bowl with the oat powder.
  • Stir together the oat powder, chamomile powder and bentonite clay. Store in a jar.



 To use
 Wet face with warm water. Then use about 1/2 teaspoon of the facial cleanser,  and mix with a few drops of warm water. Massage the mix gently over your face before rinsing it off. Avoid the eye area.




Have a berry orange day,
