Help for oily skin ~ Lavender to the rescue ~

Lavender is anti microbial, stress reducing, antibacterial,  anti-fungal, antiseptic,  relieves pain while it heals, and both cleans and tones your skin. It even relieves Eczema.

Lavender Cleansing mix

This may sound drying but I have used straight rubbing alcohol since I was a teen. Every day in the morning and at night. that is 42 years of doing that.

1 (16 oz_ bottle of rubbing alcohol
1 teaspoon Lavender essential oil

In the bottle pour the lavender. Shake and use with a cotton ball, Just dip and ring out and wipe across your face. Avoid eye area. fan face to dry.

Lavender Witch Hazel

1 (16 oz) bottle of witch hazel
1 teaspoon Lavender essential oil

Also apply with a cotton ball. Use if your skin seams dry that day  instead of the above recipe.

Lavender Oatmeal Moisturizer

1/2 cup water
1/8 cup oatmeal

Mix the oatmeal with the water and leave over night. Then using the blender, mix one minute. Then put through a sieve or cheese cloth. That you have left is a liquid. Using that liquid add 3 tablespoons Aloe Vera gel from a plant leaf. Now blend that together and add 3 drops Lavender. Using a cotton ball apply to face. Wait 10 minutes and remove with fresh cool water. Pat dry
