Almond Rose Exfoliating Scrub

Almond Rose
This gentle, homemade exfoliating scrub only uses two ingredients: almond flour and rosewater. If you don't have any rosewater on hand, you can make some by pouring boiling water over rose petals and simmering the mixture for 20 to 30 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool, then strain the petals through a colander. You can also add 1 tbsp. to 2 tbsp. of vodka to the mixture to preserve the rosewater. Mix together 1/2 tsp. almond flour and 1 tsp. rosewater. If you don't have almond flour on hand, you can make it by pulverizing a few almonds in your blender. Wash and dry your face, then apply the scrub, avoiding you lips and eyes. Leave the scrub on for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse off in cool water.
