Nourishing facial scrub

Sometimes just a couple teaspoons of joy could brighten your day!

Everything about this recipe is bright. Calendula & Chamomile flowers infused with jojoba, sweet almond or apricot oil. The lemon citrus & bergamot notes smells so nice & subtle.

Calendula is known for her anti-inflammatory & antioxidant components. Calendula also decreases the pigment melanin found in skin, reduces age spots & brightens the skin.

Chamomile helps to reduce the signs of aging by containing powerful anti-oxidants including polyphenols & phytochemicals. Helps to reduce redness & also great for eczema, psoriasis & acne. Just to name a few.

Nourishing Facial Scrub Recipe

Yields: 1 cup


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp calendula infused jojoba oil
  • 1 tbsp calendula infused sweet almond oil
  • 1 tbsp chamomile infused apricot oil
  • 1 tsp castor oil
  • 2-3 drops of vitamin E
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops bergamot essential oil



  • In a bowl combine brown sugar & oils. I prefer to use a mini food processor to mix.
  • You want a sandy texture. Not a soupy mix. If it looks to dry for you’re liking. Just adding a 1tbsp at a time of jojoba or sweet almond oil. But I think you will be fine.
  • Store in a glass jar. Will keep 2-4 weeks.
  • On a rinsed face, rub a teaspoon or 2 in your palm in circular motion to nourish your skin! If to dry just add a splash of water in your palm. Rinse with warm water, pat dry.

I like to infuse my main herbs in separate oils. So I can pick & choose what it is I want to use for a specific recipe. I feel more creative that way.

Chamomile & Calendula are the number one herbs for the skin. Easy to grow at home ! Grow & harvest. Dry them & store in glass jars out of direct sunlight for creative use later. It is exactly what I did! Enjoy!

With love,
