Calendula & Goat Milk Facial Scrub Recipe for Sensitive Skin

© Rebecca D. Dillon


2.5 oz. goat milk powder
2.5 oz. colloidal oatmeal
2.5 oz. baking soda
1 oz. apricot kernel meal
.2 oz. calendula petals, finely ground


You can typically find powdered goat milk in the baking section of your grocery store. Colloidal oatmeal is typically in the pharmacy section.

To create this natural facial scrub recipe for sensitive skin 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.

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

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. 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!!!
