Purifying Grains (Formula No. 2)

Here is a great way to exfoliate your skin! These cleansing grains are a dry mixture of Rhassoul clay, oat flour, almond and corn meals, ground lavender and rose petal powders, neem powder and essential oils of sandalwood and vetiver.  You simply mix a few teaspoons of the purifying grains formula with a bit of your favorite hydrosol (floral water) until a thick-ish paste forms.  Gently massage over face for a few minutes and rinse well.  Also feel free to mist your face with more hydrosol to moisten up the grains and leave on your face as a mask until dried and then rinse.  Not just for the face, this may be used on your back, chest, knees, elbows and feet. I love to use this as a hand scrub after playing in the garden.
