Homemade Face Mask Recipe

This facial mask recipe soothes, heals and moisturizes problem & sensitive skin

This homemade face mask recipe is designed to soothe red, irritated skin and to help reduce itchy, scaly patches caused by eczema or psoriasis.

It contains ingredients that are gentle but powerful healers, drawing impurities out of the skin, attracting moisture and softening, breaking up and lifting away dry, dead skin cells.

Oatmeal and aloe vera calm redness and irritation while feeding your skin with healing proteins, amino acids, minerals, vitamins and enzymes.

Chamomile, helichrysum and patchouli essential oils fight inflammation, kill problem-causing bacteria, and promote cell renewal so your skin heals faster.

For best results, use a good face moisturizer every morning and night to nourish skin and lock in moisture. Facial steams and toners are also good for keeping skin soft, supple and healthy-looking over time.

Homemade Face Mask Recipe


1/2 tablespoon Kaolin Clay (how to choose clay)

1/2 tablespoon Rolled Oats

1/2 teaspoon Avocado OR Evening Primrose oil

1/2 teaspoon Aloe Vera juice

1/2 teaspoon Honey

1/2 teaspoon Yogurt or Milk

One of the essential oil blends below

Sensitive Skin Blend

1 drop Chamomile essential oil

1 drop Jasmine OR Rose essential oil

1 drop Lavender essential oil

Eczema & Psoriasis Blend

1 drop Chamomile OR Helichrysum essential oil

1 drop Jasmine OR Rose essential oil

1 drop Patchouli OR Sandalwood essential oil


  1. Grind the oats to a very fine powder in a clean coffee grinder.
  2. Whisk together the oil, aloe vera and honey in a small bowl until completely combined.
  3. Slowly add the clay and oat powder a little at a time, stirring thoroughly to create a spreadable paste. (If you add it all at once you get lumps.) If the mixture seems too thick, add a little more yogurt or milk. Do not increase the oil, because the mask will slide right off your face.
  4. Stir in the essential oils.
  5. Cleanse your face and leave it damp, then smooth the homemade face mask over your face and neck, avoiding your eyes and mouth.
  6. Leave it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes (Relax! Lying down is good.)
  7. Wash the homemade facial mask off using a warm, wet washcloth.
  8. Follow with toner and face moisturizer.

Customizing Your Homemade Face Mask Recipe

Make Ahead: This recipe doesn't store well, but you can pre-mix the clay, oat powder and essential oils and store them in a dark glass or PET plastic jar. Click here to see some great little glass jars from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Replace the yogurt with chamomile or green tea if you have lactose intolerance or dairy issues.

Replace the Avocado or Evening Primrose oil with other aromatherapy carrier oils best for your skin's unique needs. Check out Sweet Almond, Kukui Nut, Rosehip and Sea Buckthorn oil.

If your skin is ultra sensitive, leave out the essential oils and the aloe vera - even without them, this homemade face mask recipe will soothe, feed and hydrate your skin.
