We’re helping you relax with a DIY lavender eye mask and foot scrub today! Trust me, you’re going to love these easy treats for your head and your toes! Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for a good reason: it has amazing calming properties! It’s also one of the safest essential oils to use, although you should still avoid applying it without some sort of carrier oil (basically, dilute it). Just rub a bit of our lavender foot scrub on your feet, then recline in your favorite comfy chair with our lavender eye mask! You’ll be off to dream land in no time.
DIY Lavender Eye Mask
Let’s start with your head, shall we? More specifically, your eyes! This eye mask is so divine when you heat it up in the microwave. Just make sure you don’t make it too hot. About 30 seconds should do it. Of course, it’s awesome unheated too, as the lavender scent will still help calm you after a long day.

Step 1: Draw an eye mask pattern onto a piece of paper or print a pattern from an online site, like this one.
Step 2: Fold the small hand towel in half and pin the pattern to towel cut. Cutting through both layers of the towel cut out an eye mask pattern. Note: Cut the pattern larger than needed as the sewing process will reduce the size significantly.
Step 3: Place the print sides of the mask together and pin. Step 4: Sew mask together, leaving a small 1” opening. Step 5: Turn the mask inside right through the opening. Using a small funnel fill the mask with dried lavender. Step 6: Hand stitch opening closed.
