DIY Dry Skin Essential Oil Oatmeal Mask

We all want healthy, radiant skin that feels just as good as it looks. With a nice face mask, we can get just that — supple, hydrated, and clean skin! That is especially important as the seasons change and the weather tries to dry and dull our complexion.

Skip the spa and keep your bank account intact with this wonderful DIY face mask! Use it once a week and say goodbye to dry skin.

Pamper yourself with this homemade oatmeal face mask that helps put moisture back into your dry skin.

Why add oatmeal? If you haven’t tried using oatmeal on your skin, you should definitely give it a try! It soothes, softens, and gently exfoliates, leaving behind happy and naturally moisturized skin.

  • After trying multiple bigname, costly skin care companies that didn’t seem to do much for my skin I’m DEFINITELY going to start using the DIY ones with oil. It’s more natural(up my alley) and WAY LESS expensive!! I’ve just gotta use up the last products of the skin care routine I’m on so I don’t feel like I just wasted $250

  • Definitely going to try this without the rose absolute. Frankincense is my absolute favorite oil ever, any one of them!

  • I may not use this on my face but I would use it on my very, very dry skin on my body to see if it helps to heal it. Also, those asking for a substitute for the egg could probably use flax egg.

  • I have never used a face mask before. This looks easy to make with the yolk or honey. I will have to find a sub. for Rose as I don’t have that. Wish me luck…

  • This sounds like a great use of all the oatmeal I have around. I do think I will try it with honey instead of the egg yolk for this time. Thanks

  • I have used this mask before, and I have to say that it’s AMAZING! It’s also pretty versatile, so you can take out or add things as wanted. Some things I’ve added that have worked well with this are aloe vera, honey (raw is always best for face, but anything works), and cooking the oatmeal in rosewater will make the best mask you’ve ever tried (just don’t eat the extras haha). A reminder; if you do add things to this mask, don’t add anything that works for, say, greasy skin. This will make the products work against eachother (so don’t add something like tea tree oil).

  • thanks for the recipe. what type of oatmeal will be the best? is quick rolled oats good for use or is it too refined? thanks

  • Ooh… this is just what I’ve been looking for. I want to start making more beauty prodocts myself with EO’s. I cant wait to try this out! Thank You!

  • Interesting….I don’t particularly like eggs, and I can’t abide the smell. I don’t think I could tolerate putting egg yolk on my face. I think I will try it with honey instead. I use raw, organic honey in the foaming face washes I make with essential oils, and it’s amazing.

  • Wonderful gift, such a good recipe to make it home. I will definitely try it. Now, can I use Frankincense Carteri instead of Frereana.

  • I need to try to remember this one for winter. I’ve never tried using an egg yolk for a facial mask before! Or cooked oatmeal for that matter.

    1. Not that I have experimented with, but you can definitely play around with it and let us know what you come up with!

  • This sounds wonderful. Will have to find a sub for Frank F….hmmmm. I have Frank S. Also, have Rose Otto 10%?

  • This sounds absolutely wonderful! I am a bigger DIYer, even more since I got into oils, and I love me a good face mask and so this is right up my alley! I can’t wait to give this a try one night when I really need a good spa night to myself in the bath with a good book and my diffuser!

    1. Stefanie: I also didn’t like the idea of egg on my face, and made this with raw honey. It turned out great; it smells amazing and leaves your skin nice and soft. Even my husband has been using it! It makes a lot though, so next time I will make less since its not something you can really store for a long time. I put it in the fridge and it will keep for a few days, but then it’s really cold on your face!

    1. I used to use coconut oil on my face until I found out (through research and the hard way 🙂 that it clogs pores, so you generally don’t want to use it on your face.

  • Hi!
    I’ve made Oatmeal & Yogurt Facial Mask and a Yolk & Lemon Juice Mask but never Oatmeal & Yolk!
    This looks good!
    and yet it’s a basic recipe that can also be tweaked with one’s favorite carrier oil or emollient as well as mixing or matching different EOs, I like it! Thanks for posting!

  • I’m going to HAVE to make this for my mum. She has horribly dry skin and loves when I make her homemade bath&body products to use. I’m sure she’ll be thrilled. 🙂

    1. Stefanie, some have used raw honey in it’s place. It’s not absolutely necessary to have. You can play around with some other moisturizing ingredients

  • Not sure what I think of the egg yolk. Otherwise it sounds like a nice treat. What is the purpose of the egg yolk?

    1. Egg yolks help lock moisture into your skin cells, leaving your skin feeling nice and soft and beneficial for dry or flaky skin.
