In the last face wash with dry ingredients, we combined lavender and cornflower with oats to make a cleanser for all skin types (link below). This time we're doing a super mild mixture for sensitive, dry, and mature skin. This will also work well with combination skin. If you like chamomile, this mixture is for you.
Let's get started, shall we?
The ingredients for this mixture
- Ground Oats
- White Clay
- Yellow Clay
The Equipment You'll Need
- Handy dandy whizzing apparatus
- Mixing Bowl
- Container for your finished product
Begin by whizzing each of your dried plants and food ingredients separately until they are as close to powder as you can get them. (Clays don't need whizzing). Above is 2 tablespoons of raw oats along with calendula in the big bowl. The whizzing machine has a spoonful of chamomile waiting to be pulverized.
Here are the ingredients in the bowl, ready to be mixed. Even though this recipe doesn't require do-or-die amounts, it's always a good idea to keep notes on how much you use of each ingredient. This recipe was measured by heaping tablespoons.
Tip: You can use either white clay or yellow clay for this mixture. I used both because I wanted to create a light yellow mixture that was pleasing to the eye. The cleansing effect is the same with either white or yellow clay.
Mix your ingredients together and fill into your container.
Voilá! A lovely face wash all ready to cleanse and gently exfoliate your lovely face.

Important Storage TipBe sure to cap the bottle immediately after measuring out a portion when you use this product. Keep the cap and opening of your container completely dry at all times. If ANY moisture comes into contact with your product while it is in the container, you will have created the perfect environment for mold, fungus, bacteria and all kinds of other beasties.
There is no preservative in this product, so it is essential that it is kept 100% dry. (did I mention how important it is that the mixture is kept dry?)
