This homemade orange and coconut face scrub recipe helps to detoxify and cleanse all skin types with natural oils and bentonite clay. It also makes a great natural body scrub!

What makes it special?

This natural orange and coconut face scrub recipe contains several key ingredients: bentonite clay, rosehip seed oil and orange peel powder.

This homemade orange and coconut face scrub recipe helps to detoxify and cleanse all skin types with natural oils and bentonite clay.

So what is bentonite clay?

Bentonite clay is derived from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments in the United States. Traditionally, bentonite clay has used to help with mineral deficiencies as well as to help bind toxins to make them more soluble. It is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. Bentonite clay is commonly used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack, or in skin care recipes.

Why use rosehip seed oil?

Rosehip seed oil is prized for its anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties in skin care as well as helping to nourish dry, weathered, and dehydrated skin. As rosehip seed oil is considered a “dry” oil it soaks easily into skin without leaving a greasy residue behind. It is a wonderful hydrator and because it is so gentle it can be used undiluted on skin. In addition rosehip seed oil is a safe, inexpensive, and effective product for helping to prevent and heal damaged skin.

What about orange peel powder?

Orange peel powder contains natural alpha-hydroxy acid – in the form of citric acid – that helps to exfoliate and brighten skin. It’s also rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants. Antioxidants have been shown to help to prevent and repair skin damage caused by free radicals. In addition because antioxidants protect cells and encourage cell growth they are also believed to be helpful in an in fighting fine lines and wrinkles.

Homemade Orange & Coconut Face Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

.25 oz. coconut milk powder
2.25 oz. bentonite clay
.15 oz. orange peel powder
.75 oz. fine white sugar
.3 oz. castor oil
.25 oz. refined coconut oil
.6 oz. rosehip seed oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out coconut milk powder, bentonite clay, orange peel powder and sugar into a medium to large glass or ceramic bowl. Whisk with a fork to combine all the dry ingredients.

In a separate glass bowl weigh and add the castor oil, coconut oil and rosehip seed oil. If your coconut oil is solid, you can set the container of coconut oil in a bowl of hot water first to liquify it.

Now slowly pour the dry ingredients in the oil mixture whisking with a fork as you go until the dry ingredients and oils are combined thoroughly.

The mixture should be barely damp but damp enough it sticks together. As the coconut oil re-solidifies the orange and coconut face scrub recipe may feel slightly drier. This is fine. What you don’t want is your ingredients floating in oil. If the mixture is too dry, add a small amount of rosehip seed oil.

Spoon the mixture into a 4 oz. jar.

To use simply remove a small amount of the orange and coconut face scrub from the container and combine with a small amount of water in your hand. Massage onto your face to gently cleanse, detoxify and exfoliate.

To use as a mask mix with water to form a paste, using just enough water so that the coconut face scrub glides onto skin, and apply to your face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for about 10 minutes, then with wet hands re-wet and massage the mask onto your face to exfoliate, then rinse and pat dry.

After using this coconut face scrub, follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.

For oily skin use this mask several times a week. For drier skin, use less often.

This orange and coconut face scrub recipe can also be used a body scrub for other problem skin areas.
