Take 1 tbsp full of cucumber juice and 1 tsp of lukewarm water; now add 1 tbsp full of unflavored gelatin which is available in the market, followed by the addition of few drops of lavender essential oil. Now take a butter paper sheet and pour the solution on to it. Spread the solution on the sheet with a spatula and allow it to cool. The solution will convert into a gel.
