Oatmeal Body Scrub Recipe
Ingredients1/4 cup (45g) Cornmeal
1/4 cup (30g) Rolled Oats, ground fine
1/4 cup (30g) Almonds, ground fine
1 tablespoon (15ml) Sweet Almond oil
9 drops Palmarosa essential oil
4 drops Rosewood essential oil
2 drops Chamomile essential oil
Secret Weapon for Super Soft SkinHere's a great secret for incredibly soft, smooth skin.
After you're done exfoliating, step out of the shower and wrap your hair in a towel but DON'T DRY OFF. Before you dry off, rub a body oil into your wet skin. (By the time you're done, your skin will have absorbed the oil, so your towel won't get all oily.)
That's it! Simple, quick and totally effective!
Cautions:If you're sensitive to nuts, substitute 1/4 cup finely ground rice.
If you're allergic to ragweed, replace the chamomile essential oil with 3 drops lavender.
