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.

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.

  1. Looks easy to make – concerned that the lavender oil would transfer off your feet on to whatever they were resting on – or does it absorb very quickly?

    I so need this for me and I think I can actually do the mask. If all comes out well I will be making these for my family and friends!

  3. I think this would be a nice gift for a teacher.. could make up a number of them at a time and have them on hand as a sweet gift.
