5 Facial Scrub Recipes with a Holiday Twist
Orange Honey Face Scrub
2 Tablespoons Dried Orange Peel Powder
2 Tablespoons Oatmeal
1 teaspoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Water
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together well. Gently massage into skin for 1-2 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
Coffee and Sugar Plum Scrub
2 Tablespoons Ground Coffee
3 Plums Crushed (or enough to mix coffee to a paste)
Mix the ingredients together. Gently massage into skin for 1-2 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
Peppermint Sugar Scrub
Olive Oil or Sweet Almond Oil
1 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract or Essential Oil
Mix 3 parts white sugar and 1 part olive oil or sweet almond oil (look for that same consistency and add where necessary). Add the Peppermint extract.
Candy Cane Sugar Scrub
2 Cups of White Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup to 1/3 Cup Almond Oil (Coconut Oil will work too).
Few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
I simply took two cups of white granulated Sugar and mixed in a 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup Almond Oil (Coconut Oil will work too). Add the oil slowly till you have a nice soft consistency that is soft but not too oily. Then add a few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil.
Pumpkin Sugar Spice Scrub
2 cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup White Sugar (or Raw Sugar)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/3 cup Almond Oil or Coconut Oil (add more if needed)
In a medium mixing bowl combine the sugars and spices. Mix together with a wooden spoon. Slowly pour in the Oil and stir until well blended. You may add more if your scrub is too dry. You don’t want it to be runny, just a nice damp texture. Cover in a tight container. Store in the refrigerator up to 8 weeks.
