Honey and Vanilla facial scrub : Recipe
I was looking through DIY facial scrubs online and thought of a few recipes of my own, this is one of them :]
I knew that honey is good for your skin, let alone your insides so I definitely wanted to include some of that, I also really love the scent of vanilla but I don't have any vanilla essential oil. So instead I used an actual vanilla pod and vanilla infused sugar.
Here's the recipe if you'd like to make it yourself :]
5 tablespoons of Almond oil
5 tablespoons of honey
The seeds from a vanilla pod
Vanilla infused sugar (if you don't have any, use plain sugar)
All you do is combine the oil, honey and vanilla seeds in a bowl and add sugar until you get a consistency that you like, some like it quite runny, others like it grainier. I like mine more on the runny side because it's more oily that way which works for my super dry skin.
I used the jar I had leftover from the fajita paste lol don't worry, I washed it out PROPERLY ;]
This scrub will keep for about a month but make sure you store it in a cool place and don't get any water into it otherwise it will become bacteria infested...bleh...not nice.
I prefer making homemade scrubs, they're so easy to make and won't cost a bomb like most high quality scrubs. An these have no chemicals...yay for no chemicals!
