Oatmeal Almond Scrub
What You Need:
vitamin E gels (optional)
What You Do:
- Grind the almonds in a food processor until it resembles a fine powder, but not quit long enough to turn it into almond butter.
- Grind the oats in a food processor until it is a fine powder.
- Combine a ratio of two parts oat powder to one part almond powder in a tight fitting container.
- Store it in a cool, dry place.
When you are ready to use it, you can take a tablespoon (or more) and add a little water to make a thin paste. Rub it onto your skin and let it sit a couple of minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
If you want a more nourishing scrub, you can mix a tablespoon or two of the base scrub with water, the contents of a vitamin E gel, and/or a teaspoon of honey. Leave it on your skin an extra minute or two, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

I like to make up a batch of the base scrub and keep it on hand. When I am ready to use it, I will pour some into a small bowl and add the other ingredients or just use it with water alone. I follow up this skin treatment by massaging a little bit of coconut oil or 100% cocoa butter into my skin. I Love, love, love how soft and nourished it leaves my skin feeling.
