Stimulating Honey Scrub

After exposure to strong, stiff winds, the skin can become irritated and flaky.  A scrub helps remove excess skin and restore your natural glow.


1 1/3 ounces white soap, shaved into thin strips
1 ounce white wax
3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons benzoin essential oil
2 teaspoons witch hazel


In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, melt the soap, white wax, and honey, and mix thoroughly. Then add the essential oil and witch hazel.  Pour the mixture into a bottle, cork tightly, and put aside for future use.

To use:  Gently rub into affected area instead of soap before retiring.  Rise with warm water, dry face thoroughly and apply a cold cream or a cucumber cream.
