Recipe - how to make ORGANIC NETTLE SEED FACE AND BODY SCRUB
A good quality organic oil - this will moisturise and smooth your skin.
Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention. Also it is great for slowing down signs of ageing.
Lemon helps keep skin even-toned. It also motivates your pores to close and your face to tighten resulting in smoother skin.
How to make it:
1 tsp (teaspoon) of nettle seeds
1 Tbsp (Tablespoon) of organic oil (I used olive oil but you can use your favorite)
1 Tbsp of honey
A few drops of lemon juice.
1. Mix all the ingredients and put on your face and/or body.
2. Massage your skin gently with your fingers for a few minutes. Massaging helps release the nutrients from the seeds and in to your skin.
3. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
