YIELD: FILLS A 4-OUNCE (120-ML) JAR
- 2 tbsp (14 g) rolled oats
- ¼ cup (2 g) dried rose petals
- ¼ cup (60 ml) raw honey
- 1 tsp rosehip seed oil
Using an electric coffee grinder or mortar and pestle, coarsely grind the oats and dried rose petals. In a small bowl, combine them with the honey. Add the rosehip seed oil and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Use a clean spoon to scoop a small amount into the palm of your hand. Gently rub over your face and neck. Wash o with warm water and a washcloth. Rinse your skin well and gently pat dry.
This cleanser will stay fresh for 1 to 2 months, as long as you don’t introduce water into it. Over time, the honey may settle into a separate layer. This is normal and just requires a quick stir before use. Store tightly sealed, away from heat and direct sunlight.
Variation: While rosehip seed oil is one of the antiaging stars in this cleanser, if it’s out of your price range, try sweet almond, hemp or sunflower oil for their moisturizing benefits instead.
