Lavender, vanilla and honey facial exfoliator

For this natural face scrub I used 2 teaspoons of dried lavender flowers mixed with 1/4 brown sugar ( I don’t usually have white sugar in the house but you can use it instead of brown sugar, your choice). I also remembered I had some natural vanilla extract, so I added 1 teaspoon of that, 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil ( you can also use alomond or grapeseed oil as well) and 1 tablespoon of raw honey.

Stir, crush and press everything together until you have a nice mixture. Gently massage your face with it in circular motions, on clean face. Avoid your eye and lips area.After a couple a minutes, wash your face with warm to cold water, par your face dry. Use a light moisturizer after this scrub because the oils in the mixture hydrate and illuminate the skin naturally.

I read this recipe a while ago and remembered to buy the ingredients and try it out. You can easily find the ingredients at a local natural/organic farmaceutical store.


This would actually make a nice gift for a friend in case of a last minute thing. 🙂
