Weekend Home Made Face Scrub

Inspired by Rati's haul of Lush I am planning to make my own home-made version of Angel on Bare Skin Scrub.

The original has Ground Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Glycerine, Kaolin, Water (Aqua),Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Lavender Flowers (Lavandula hybrida), *Limonene,

Here is what I plan to do:

1. Soak 4-5 almonds overnight
2. Next day pound them into a paste with few drops of glycerine and rose water,
3. Add some Lacto-Calamine lotion (which has kaolin) to make a paste
4. Add 2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil.
5. Scrub my face! :-)

Will post on Monday to let you guys know if this did any good!

Have a happy weekend!
