Soothing Oil-Free Mask

Soothing Oil-Free Mask:

YIELDS: 3 - 4 masks

1 cup water

1⁄4 cup flaxseeds

2 drops chamomile essential oil


* What you will need: saucepan, wire whisk, mixing bowl, tea strainer, tight-sealing container


1. To Make: Place the water and flaxseeds in the pan on medium high heat. Stirring occasionally, use the whisk to keep the seeds moving and not sticking to the pan. Once the mixture begins to boil, stir gently and constantly. When it starts to thicken slightly, turn down the heat to low and keep stirring until the seeds start suspending in the liquid instead of falling to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and strain liquid into the mixing bowl, discarding the seeds. Add the chamomile essential oil and whisk to blend. Allow to cool completely before use.

2. To Store: This mask is best fresh. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

3. To Use: To use, spread a medium thick layer of the mask onto clean skin. Leave on skin 10-15 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.
