DIY Honey Nutmeg Face Scrub

This simple face scrub exfoliates to leave your skin suuuuuper soft every time! It also a natural remedy for healing scars and opening pores.

All you need is:

  • Honey (the more raw/natural, the better!)
  • Nutmeg
  • *can be mixed with oats
  • *can be mixed with brown sugar

I literally just dump an estimated 3/4 amount of nutmeg and/or brown sugar in with the honey and stir it around for a while. The nutmeg will settle from each use and will probably need mixing from time to time. If you're wanting to do add oats, first boil them before combining with the honey mixture. If the oats are too freshly made and still warm, wait until it cools off, or else the honey will become extra soupy and will not firm up correctly.
When applying, message an ample amount onto your freshly washed face. Beware to not over-coat, the honey will drip. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, rinse thoroughly. I have left it on for an hour several nights in a row (mostly because I lose track of time), but you know what? The great thing is no matter how long you leave it, it won't hurt you! And though it may be a bit sticky while applying, it's a treat to lick your fingers clean. ;)
I highly recommend adding this to one's daily routine.
