Oatmeal - Lavender face scrub
I have been looking for a great face scrub that I could make for some time now. I came across this one and thought I would share. It has simple ingredients and keeps for about 6 months. I found it at whole living. Along with a few other good looking body scrub recipes that I will try out and let y'all know about. But for now a nice calming face scrub. They recommend using once a week to start and gradually increase to no more then 3 times a week. Like I have said before I am not a skin specialist, and wouldn't recommend using this if you are allergic to any ingredients listed below. Make sure to test on a small patch of skin if you are worried about harsh reactions. My face was fine and great. I am thinking about making this as gifts this year. Along with a few other things.. Ready set Exfoliate!
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup lavender flowers dried & removed from stems
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 TBS fine cornmeal
Combine everything in a food processor or blender and grind it up till it has a few chunks.
Take a small amount and massage into damp skin and rinse with warm water. Keep the rest in a sealed container. Since it's dry, traveling with it is great.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!
