How To Make Your Own Almond Face Scrub

I’ve been using aloe gel as a face mask for a few years now, but I’ve been looking for a non-toxic face scrub lately.

After making a batch of fresh almond milk one day, I was wondering what to do with the leftover pulp when it dawned on me that the pulp would make a perfect almond face and body scrub!

All you need are a few ingredients that you may already have in your pantry.

I have made this recipe a few times and I actually have two versions of it. The first version is the traditional way and the second version is with coconut. I like them both, but the coconut oil really helps to soften my skin.

Almond Scrub Ingredients




  • 1 cup almond pulp (left over from making homemade almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup cold pressed sweet almond oil (you can use cold pressed
    olive oil as well)
  • 3 to 4 drops of pure essential oil of your choice (this is optional)

Mix the almond pulp and oils together with a spoon (or use your hands).

Coconut-Almond Scrub Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond pulp (left over from making homemade almond milk)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut that has been soaked and drained (make sure to press the extra water out)
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, milted
  • 3 to 4 drops of pure essential oil of your choice (this is optional)

Mix the almond pulp, coconut pulp and coconut oil together with a spoon (or use your hands).

Directions

To use the scrub, take a small amount about the size of a quarter and gently rub it on your face in a small circle. Some of the pulp will fall off your face so make sure to lean over the sink. After you have gently rubbed your entire face, wash the scrub off with warm water. You can do this once or twice per day.

I usually follow up by applying the gel from an aloe leaf to my face, let it dry overnight and then wipe it off with warm water the next morning.

So there you go. That’s my secret to radiant skin without chemicals!
