Lavender Nutty Gritty Grains

Lavender Nutty Gritty Grains

1/4 cup oats, coarsely cut and sifted
1/4 cup almonds, finely ground
2 T. cashews, finely ground
2 T. dried lavender buds
1 T. amaranth or poppy seeds

Gently combine all ingredients and place in an air tight container. Store in the refridgerator until ready for use. To use, scoop a portion into your hand and add enough of your favorite floral hydrosol or distilled water to make a paste-like substance. Massage gently over face, neck, or hands. Avoid eye area and any broken skin. The mixture will cleanse and exfoliate skin. When done, rinse with warm water. Pat the extra moisture from skin and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer. Enjoy!
