Oatmeal, Almond and Avocado Body Scrub

Oatmeal, rich in vitamin E, is well-known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, skin-soothing properties. Almonds are a natural emollient and, when ground, an effective exfoliant. Combined with avocado pulp, which contains vitamins A,D and E, and which possesses collagen-rebuilding properties, the oatmeal-almond mixture is ideal for irritated, tired and dry skin. In order to avoid clogging your drain, it is best to make a small pouch or bag out of muslin cloth and fill it with dry oatmeal and the grated almonds. Ideally, you should make the bag large enough so that you can fit your hand into it and use it as a mitt to rub the avocado on your body.

Recipe:

1/2 cup almonds

1 cup dry oatmeal

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed

 

Place almonds in a blender or coffee grinder and grind until course and not too fine. Mix almonds and oatmeal and place in glove or muslin mitt. Scoop up avocado and rub on body with mitt. Rinse off with warm water, pat dry and moisturize.

 

Save the avocado pit as a natural massage tool and rub the pit into sore muscles after the scrub.
