DIY Thursday: Honey and Lavender Facial Scrub

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Raw Manuka Honey
  • 1 Drop Pure Lavender Essential Oil
  • 1 Drop Pure Frankincense Essential Oil

Directions

  1. Combine the baking soda and honey together until it looks like a paste. Add one drop each of lavender and frankincense essential oils.
  2. Place a warm washcloth over your face and hold on skin for a minute or so to open up your pours.
  3. Gently rub face with facial scrub using small circular motions. Keep massaging skin with scrub for 3-5 minutes to fully remove dead skin from face and to let the essential oils work their magic.
  4. Rinse off with warm water.

 

***Your face may be red for a bit, but it will wear off. Use this scrub no more than 1-2 times a week. This scrub is alkaline to the skin, so to even out your pH it is a good idea to splash your face with rosewater afterwards.
