How to Make Sensitive Skin Facial Scrub
Here is how to make a natural facial scrub recipe for sensitive skin care:
- You’ll need to begin by weighing out the calendula petals using a digital scale. Next, grind the calendula petals in a coffee grinder or food processor.
- Now weigh out all of the remaining ingredients using a scale and combine with the ground calendula petals in a large bowl. Mix well. Then spoon into airtight containers for storage.
- To use your homemade facial scrub, simply remove a small amount of the scrub from the container and mix with just enough water, honey or favorite carrier oil (up to one Tablespoon) to form a paste. (For extra dry or mature skin, try mixing this scrub with shea nut oil or rosehip seed oil.) Then apply to facial skin in a circular motion for up to one minute. Alternately, you can use this scrub as a mask by applying and letting set for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with water to remove and pat dry. Store your scrub in a cool dry location.

I was wondering how I could make this vegan. Like what could I replace the goats milk powder with? :}

You could sub the goat milk powder with coconut milk powder.

I love this!! Can I add the honey in and then package it? I am thinking of making it for gifts and like the idea of adding the honey in advance but I am wondering if any of the ingredients would get spoiled sitting in the honey over time?

I would be worried about mixing honey with ingredients and not using a preservative. I’d say no unless you use a preservative, but then I’m only guessing.

Hey Rebecca! Could I substitute almond meal, almond flour, or coconut flour for the apricot kernel meal?

The apricot kernel meal is there for it’s exfoliating properties so you could sub any similar product that gives you the level of exfoliation you’re looking for.

Hi! do you think I can mix in some essential oil to add some fragrance to it? and if so how much should I add? Thank you!!!

You could. I wouldn’t add more than 10-12 drops per ounce of product.
