Rose Petal Facial Scrub 

  • 1/4 cup rose powder
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup powdered milk

Pour into a jar and shake well. Be careful with the rose powder, it is very fine and can get everywhere. It can be stored for up to 1 year. 

To use:

Tap out a small amount of the powder into the palm of your hand and mix with water to make a paste. Use small circular motions to cleanse your face.

Follow with a toner.

I sometimes leave it on for a few minutes as I would with a mask.

Honey Almond Facial Scrub

  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon jojoba oil or other carrier oil**

Warm the honey over a double boiler and then mix in the other ingredients and stir well.
Store in a cool, dark place.

To use:
Moisten your face with water

Take about 1/2 a tablespoon of the mixture in your hand and add a few drops of water (in your hand, not in the jar).

Scrub the skin gently, letting the almond meal do the work of exfoliating.


Lightly massage all over your face and can leave on for several minutes.

Remove with warm wash cloth or warm water.

** The carrier oils can be any oil like almond, apricot, olive oils, coconut oil (fractionated), grapeseed etc. These can also be found at health food stores.
