I have always used an almond scrub from the drugstore on my face. I have never made one from scratch even though I took a facial products class from Lori Nova may years ago. In a recent newsletters from Mountain Rose Herb they included a rceipe for a Rose and Oat Facial Scrub. Their recipe looks simple enough to make but I will have to be on the look out for organic rose petals. So give it a try and see what you think. Now I am on the look out for a mud mask since Walmart and CVS no longer carry my favorite mud mask.
For this recipe, you will need:
1 TBSP organic old-fashioned rolled Oats
1 TBSP organic raw Almonds
2 tsp dried organic Rose petals
1 tsp Rhassoul clay
Grind oats, almonds, and Rose petals in a clean coffee grinder until finely powdered. Sift through a mesh screen to remove larger pieces; larger pieces may be too abrasive for the delicate facial skin. Add Rhassoul clay, mix thoroughly, and store in a glass jar. To use, mix 2-3 tsp with water, milk, cream, flower water, or tea until a smooth paste forms. Massage the scrub onto your face with fingertips, then rinse with cool water.
