Soothing Oat Facial Cleanser Recipe
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: Makes a heaping ¼ cup (enough for 30+ uses)
This soothing facial cleansing powder features restorative and purifying ingredients like oats, chamomile and bentonite clay. This cleanser will not remove makeup, so remove any makeup first. I recommend my DIY Makeup Remover recipe here.
  • ¼ cup dry rolled oats (uncooked)
  • 1 teabag of organic chamomile tea (make sure it contains no other ingredients) OR 4 drops of chamomile essential oil
  • 1 Tbs. bentonite clay (find it here)
  • Glass jar, for storing the facial cleanser (I used an empty spice jar)
  1. Use a coffee grinder, spice grinder or Magic Bullet to grind the rolled oats into a fine powder. It should be soft and powdery, not gritty. Alternatively, use ¼ cup oat flour. Transfer the oat powder to a bowl.
  2. In the coffee/spice grinder, place about 1 tsp. of the oat powder along with the contents of the teabag. Grind until the chamomile is a fine powder, then transfer to the bowl. If using the essential oil, skip this step and add the oil directly into the bowl with the oat powder.
  3. Stir together the oat powder, chamomile powder and bentonite clay. Store in a jar.
  4. This cleanser will not remove makeup, so it works well in the morning. To use, wet face with warm water. Use about ½ teaspoon of the facial cleanser, add a few drops of warm water, and massage it gently over your face before rinsing it off. Avoid the eye area.
