Rose and Lavender Face Scrub

Recently I have noticed that I unintentionally  have not used a shop bought exfoliator for a long time, face and body. Spending so much time creating different diy beauty recipes, I have been using natural exfoliants on my skin and I absolutely love them.  Most of the shop bought scrubs were leaving my skin dry and irritated, not mentioning the harsh chemical ingredients that were in them.

  1. This gentle face scrub smells divine and rose and lavender are my favourite smells ever. You can however, if you prefer, use dried chamomile instead of lavender for this scrub. The dried flowers are easily available in health food stores and you can always ofcourse pick them yourself if you have the chance . Apart from smelling amazing roses have lots of vitamin C and contain pectin, malic and citric acids and lavender flower is an anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, balancing, energising, soothing, healing, toning and stimulating. It works well on all skin types and is effective in treating oily skin as well as acne, dermatitis and eczema.

To make this scrub you will need:

3 table spoons oatmeal ( or oats )

2 table spoons dried roses

2 table spoons lavender

3 table spoons honey

50 ml almond/olive/sunflower/jojoba oil

To make :

Combine the dried flowers and oats and grind in a coffee grinder or  blender. Transfer to a jar and add oil and honey.

To use, use a clean spoon to get the scrub out of the  jar and put a small amount in your palm. Gently apply the scrub using a circular motion and rinse with warm water. Make sure that no water gets into the jar when using the scrub.

This scrub would make an amazing gift, just place the combined flowers and oats together , without adding honey and oil , so that whoever gets it as a gift can add it themselves when required.

Love , Anna xx
