This made a beautiful mask! I did increase the quantity of my favourite lotion(which at the moment happens to be Enchanteur Alluring Perfumed Hand And Body lotion) to 8 tbsps. and the quantity of oats to 2 tbsps. I did not have any lavender oil, so I substituted it with peppermint oil(12 drops). I ran short of Vaseline(Pertoleum Jelly), so I used all that I had which was about 4 tbsps. I had used my fingers to remove the paste that had stuck between the blades of my mixer and then instead of directly washing my hands out, I massaged the paste onto my palms. I allowed it to stay on my palms for 5 minutes. After that, I washed my palms under running tap water. Then, I patted them dry and felt them. They were as soft and smooth as the bum of a new born baby:-) I have kept the remaining mask paste in my refrigerator. I would love to apply this mask 'COLD' in these horrible humid summers. I think it would also be really cool to use this mask paste as a foot lotion. I would think of applying this in the night on my feet and maybe even my legs, and then washing it off the next day. Would feel like a pampered baby! LOL. But, seriously, I am considering the idea and if I do do it, I will post an update. THANK YOU for sharing a wonderful recipe!
