I found this scrub recipe over at Crunchy Betty's site and decided that I had to give it a try. I love it! It feels great, is natural and leaves skin feeling soft. It's not at all harsh, or drying.
1/2 c. finely ground oats
1/2 c. finely ground raw almonds
water (you can replace the water with witch hazel for oily skin, milk for dry skin, or rosewater) – this is added to the scrub right before using, NOT mixed in to the main recipe.
Finely grind the almonds, but make sure you don't turn them into almond butter. Put that in a bowl and grind the oats. Add oats to the bowl and mix well. Put in a covered jar or dish for storage. Mine is in an empty honey jar.There are suggestions for additional add ins at Crunchy Betty's page, if you are interested, go there and check it out!
Directions for use: Place a small amount, approximately 2 tsp, of scrub in your hand and add a little water and combine, letting the oats absorb the liquid. Lightly scrub it onto your face in a circular motion, and rinse. You can also leave this on to dry for a few minutes before rinsing if you'd like.
