I've been wanting to try making lavender face scrub, and today was just the time to do it.
about 1 cup oats (I used quick-cooking variety because we have some that need to be used up)
about 1/4 cup light olive oil (again, because it's what was on hand)
about 5-6 drops of lavender oil
Everything went into the blender, except the lavender oil,
Then I added the lavender oil, let it blend a little longer, and put it into a jar. My measurements are all "about" because I didn't actually measure the ingredients, I just dumped things in the blender. I doubt it needs to be exact; consistency is what is important.
When I used the final product, oh my. My face feels smooth and soft, and so do my hands just from applying the scrub. I rubbed it gently over my face, then washed it off.
I used probably 2 or 3 tablespoons for my face. You can see how much I have left. Now I'm wondering if it should be refrigerated between uses. Anyone know? Wonder what it would do for my winter legs?
This is inexpensive, quick and a pleasure to use. All that adds up to a keeper in my book. I'm thinking gifts for daughters-in-law next Christmas...
