This recipe is similar to my previous post,Cleansing Grains . But as I was attempting to make the recipe last night, I realized I didn't have all the ingredients. I thought I had plain oatmeal or the flavor was separate, but I had fiber oatmeal with maple syrup pre-packaged. Now that I think about it, I should have tried it, Maybe next time.
This recipe, worked just fine and I loved the results. It made my face feel like all the pore clogging dirt and oil was sucked right out, without feeling dry and tight. I then followed this up with Thayers Witch Hazel toner and Coconut Oil for a moisturizer.
Note: I have oily skin, so I would not recommend using the Coconut oil, it made my face feel oily and covered. Trial and error right!
Enjoy and share your recipes!
Cleansing Grains Recipe
2 tablespoons bentonite clay
1/4 cup ground almonds
1-2 drops of lavender essential Oil
Place almonds into blender and mix until fine.
Combine almonds with bentonite clay in a bowl and mix. Store mixture in a glass jar.
How to use:
Scoop out a portion of mix and moisten with honey and water/yogurt/apple cider vinegar ( depending on skin type). Be sure to use enough water/yogurt/ACV mix or the paste will be very thick and hard to spread.
Gently apply paste and scrub face.
