Homemade Oatmeal Scrub with Almonds, Lavender, and Chamomile
– 1/4 cup raw almonds (or 2 tbsp almond flour)
– 4 tbsp oatmeal
– 1 tbsp cornstarch
– 1 tbsp chamomile flowers (I used the contents of chamomile tea packets)
– 2 tsp sweet almond oil + 5 drops lavender extract — OR — 2 tsp lavender oil
Chop raw almonds in a spice grinder or food processor until they are a fine meal. Skip this step if using almond flour. Add remaining ingredients and blend well until mixture is a soft granular powder. To use each morning, put half a tablespoon of this mixture in your palm and add just a couple of drops of water. Rub hands together to make a paste. Gently rub and massage it onto damp skin in circular motions to exfoliate. Wash off with warm water and a warm, damp washcloth; end with a splash of cold. Keep the scrub in a well-sealed glass jar and it will stay fresh for months.
