DIY Facial Cleansing Powder: Soothing Cleanser / Mask / Exfoliant

Oat: soothes dry skin, heals/repair blemishes on skin. 
Chamomile: reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Lavender: reduce scarring.

1 cup of ground oat flour (you can grind the oats by using a processor or a mortar porter.)
2 tea bags of organic chamomile tea (I'm using organic chamomile & lavender tea)
4 tbp. of bentonite clay 
**Amplify the scent and benefits by adding: 10 drops of chamomile, lavender or lemon essential oil.**
Empty spice jar (or any glass jar)

grind the oats (or purchase ground oat flour) and herbs from your tea bag. 

Mix all ingredients together and insert your concoction into your spice jar.

You can use your facial cleansing powder as a daily cleanser or a weekly mask. **remove makeup before hand.**

cleanser = 1 tsp + a few drops of water
mask = add aloe gel, milk, honey or yogurt to create a paste like consistency (leave on for 15-20 mins)
exfoliant = add oat (creates a little texture),sea salt or ground coffee
