Lavender Face Mask RecipeLavender Face Mask Recipe

Today, we will be showing you how to create a lavender face mask recipe.  This mask is perfect for sensitive skin.  We use both kaolin clay and soothing lavender.  Lavender is a wonderful addition to your skin care routine when you need to revitalize and tone your skin.  To read even more about the remarkable lavender benefits in your bath and body products, click here to see our free lavender class.  Kaolin clay was added, in part, to help cleanse your skin.  However, we will look a little bit closer at each of these ingredients below.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Cosmetic Making Supplies Found at Natures Garden

Lavender Flowers Powder
Kaolin Clay Powder
Vitamin E Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
Disposable Pipettes
2 oz White Double Wall Jar
White Dome Lids 58/400
1 oz Clear PET Bottle
White Smooth Disc Lid 20/410

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Other Equipment You Will Need

Mixing Bowls (one medium and one small bowl)
Scale
Mixing Spoons
Distilled Water

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Total Recipe Amounts

96 grams Lavender Flowers Powder
224 grams Kaolin Clay Powder
24 drops Vitamin E Oil
12 grams Vegetable Glycerin

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Weigh Out the Lavender Powder

First, let’s talk a little bit about lavender powder.  Lavender flowers powder has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, healing, and toning properties.  So, it is a perfect addition to a face mask recipe.

Weigh Out the Lavender PowderNow, you will need to weigh out the lavender flowers powder.  So, get your scale out.  You will also need your medium size bowl.  Then, use your scale to weigh out 96 grams of your lavender flowers powder.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Weigh Out the Kaolin Clay Powder

Next, let’s talk about kaolin clay powder. Kaolin clay is also known as China Clay.  It is a white clay that is wonderful for those with sensitive skin.  This type of clay is often used to make mineral makeup.  It is used in cosmetic products like foundation, blush, and even eye shadow.  When used in a bath bomb, it helps to harden them.  In this case, there are two reasons we added it to this recipe.  First, it will help harden the face mask when applied to your face.   In addition, like most cosmetic clays, kaolin clay will help clean your skin and help with removing toxins.

Weigh Out the Kaolin Clay Powder
So, go ahead and weigh out the kaolin.  You will add the clay to the same bowl you have added your lavender to.  To your medium bowl, add 224 grams of your kaolin white clay.  Then, mix the two ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Add the Vitamin E Oil

The next ingredient we will be adding is vitamin E.  Vitamin E oil from Natures Garden comes in the purest form, this is called Tocopherol T-50.  It is not tocopherol acetate.  Vitamin E oil is an antioxidant and is fabulous for your skin.

Add the Vitamin E OilNext, to your bowl containing the powdered ingredients, you will be adding your pure Vitamin E oil.  So, use a disposable pipette to add 24 drops of the Vitamin E oil right to the powder.  Then, once again, mix the ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Packaging Your Facial Mask

For this recipe, we decided to package the powder portion of the mask and vegetable glycerin separately.  We chose to create the facial mask recipe this way for a couple of reasons.  First, creating the facial mask mixture separately without the water you will not need to add a preservative. In addition, you will be able to prepare a quick product for your customers.  This project can be created in just a few minutes.  Each two ounce jar will create approximately 4 facial masks.

Packaging Your Facial Mask:  The Powdered Portion

The Powdered Portion

Now, your powdered portion is complete.  You can begin packaging your powdered portion of the facial mask.  So, use a spoon to fill each of your 2 oz white double wall jars.  You will be able to create approximately 8 jars of facial mask.

Packaging Your Facial Mask:  The Liquid Portion

First, let’s talk about the vegetable glycerin.  Vegetable glycerin is a humectant.  This means it will draw moisture to your skin.  So, we add vegetable glycerin to the facial mask to help leave our skin moisturized.  It is important because, when using a facial mask, you are using ingredients that draw impurities from your skin.  So, adding vegetable glycerin will help to leave your skin feeling moisturized.

The Liquid Portion

Next, we will prepare the vegetable liquid portion of the facial mask.  While yes, water needs to be mixed to a mask, we will not be adding it at this point.  That will come later when it is time to use your mask.  So, we will prepare eight bottles of vegetable glycerin.  To each of your half ounce bottles add 12 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Then, place a white ribbed lid on each bottle.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Using Your Facial Mask

We talked earlier about packaging our mask.  So, in order to use the lavender mask, you will need to mix it.  As we talked about before, by mixing it on an as needed basis, it will prolong the shelf life and make it a very fast project to create.  With that being said, we will now talk about how you can use the mask.  It really is a simple process.  In addition, if you are selling this mask as a product, you can sell the jar and bottle as a set and label it with instructions.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Mixing Your Facial Mask

You will need one of your jars of powder.  Also, you will need one of the bottles of vegetable glycerin.  Finally, you will need your small mixing bowl at this time.

Mixing Your Facial Mask

We will start with the lavender powdered mixture.  First, to your small bowl, add about 1 tablespoon of the powder.

 

 

 

Adding Vegetable Glycerin

Next, you will need your bottle of vegetable glycerin.  Then, add about 1/2 teaspoon of your vegetable glycerin to the powder.

 

 

 

Finally, you will add your distilled water.  Ultimately we added about 2 tablespoons.  Lastly, mix to incorporate all of the ingredients together.

Lavender Face Mask Recipe:  Applying Your Facial Mask

Once you have mixed your ingredients together, simply apply a thin layer of the lavender face mask to your face.  Then, relax and allow the lavender mask to harden.  Finally, once the mask has completely hardened, use warm water to remove the clay mask.

Other Ways to Use Lavender:

Natures Garden also carries a variety of other types of lavender as well.  So, let’s take a look at other ways to use lavender in your products.

Lavender Essential Oils and Lavender Flowers

First, let’s look at lavender essential oils.  We carry a couple of types.  First, of course, is our pure lavender essential oil.  Our lavender 40/42 essential oil can be used in a variety of soap and cosmetic recipes.  In addition to soap, you can use it in anything from powder, to lotion to lip balm to hair conditioners.  The sky is the limit.

Lavandin essential oil is next on our list.  For those wondering, “What is lavandin?”, it is a lavender hybrid.  Lavandin does have an aroma that is similar to a lavender essential oil but is not the exact same scent.  It is still a natural and pure essential oil as well.  It can also be used in a variety of soap and cosmetic products.   On a personal note, I especially love this essential oil mixed with peppermint essential oil.  When mixed 2 parts lavandin to 1 part peppermint essential oil, it smells amazingly fresh and clean!

Finally, our whole lavender flowers not only comes in a powdered version, we also carry dried whole lavender flowers.  These can be used infused in lotions, added to bath bombs, or used to create a lavender bath tea just to name a few.

Lavender Fragrance Oil

First, let’s talk about Natures Garden’s Lavender Flowers Fragrance Oil.  This lavender scent is that of true lavender flowers.

Next, on this list of Natures Garden fragrance oils is Lavender Luxury Fragrance Oil.  This lavender aroma starts with notes of lavender, bergamot, eucalyptus, along with citrus zest.  Then, it is followed by notes of lily and sage.  Finally, it sits on base notes of pine, cool camphor, and clove.

Of course, we couldn’t forget to mention Lavender Martini Fragrance Oil.  This one is unique and extremely popular here at Natures Garden, especially it soap.  I would consider this one a must smell fragrance.  To explain this one, think gin meets lavender with an effervescent pop.

Lavender Mint WOW Fragrance Oil is the perfect combination of both mint and lavender.  This lavender scent brings the two together perfectly.  This fragrance oil really is the balance without one overpowering the other.

Fun Lavender Facts:

Now, let’s talk about lavender itself.  Lavender grows wild in Southern Europe, Australia and the United States.  There are many lavender fields that you can actually visit.  Can you imagine visiting one of these farms and begin engulfed in the aroma of lavender?  To find just a few of these fields, read more on the country living website here.

While Natures Garden sells lavender only for use in soap and cosmetic recipes, it is often used in products like smoothies.  Check out these lavender facts and smoothies from Green Blender.

Another reason to love lavender is for its ability to repel insects like flies, fleas, and mosquitoes.  In addition to the fabulous floral aroma of lavender, they are so easy to grow.  It will make a great addition to your flower garden.  They also attract those adorable little butterflies.  Read more from Natural Living Ideas.
