Are you looking for a great face scrub recipe which is gentle on your skin and uses natural ingredients? Here is a luxurious blend of almonds, oatmeal, milk and rose petals. Purchase the rose petals from a herbalist and grow then at home to ensure they are free from chemicals. The rose petals can be powdered in a mortar and pestle or can be grinded in a coffee grinder. When mixed with almond oil, the scrub will cleanse the face and leave it silky soft. This recipe makes enough for 10 treatments.
45ml/3 tablespoons of ground almonds (without the skin)
