Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey by Laurie Dotson

This came to me while drinking my morning coffee. The perfect facial scrub! I know what honey and cinnamon do for the body. So, why not make a scrub, out of my favorite ingredients.  I fix my coffee with cinnamon and honey every morning.  The combination has so many amazing healing properties. Not only can it cure many conditions such as headaches, constipation, and fatigue, it also has strong preventative powers. It reduces muscle and joint inflammation. It helps the body properly regulate insulin production and lowers cholesterol and many more things.  So why not put them all together and make a cleanser, moisturizer, and exfoliates for my face.  Try it out!!!! Let me know what you think.

A Sweet Scrub:

Coffee and Cinnamon

Coffee Cinnamon & Honey Scrub

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of olive oil or coconut oil
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds

Combine all of the ingredients together and stir. If the recipe being too runny, or too dry. This is really just personal preference, so if you find it’s too runny, add more sugar, and if it’s too dry, add a tad more coconut oil or honey. This scrub smells so good you  will  want to eat it:)

Scrub. With a moist hand, rub the facial into your skin in small circular motions. If the facial is too tight to move easily, add some warm water with your hands. Rinse. The facial is easiest to remove in the shower. Stand under the shower and let the warm water dissolve the facial from your face. Be sure to rinse thoroughly, especially near the hairline.

Apply Hive & Honey BEEpothecary Propolis oil,  coconut oil, or olive oil to your face as a moisturizer.

Now A Salty Scrub:

Honey and Salt Facial Scrub

Salt and Honey

Ingredients:

  • Honey
  • Kosher or sea salt
Honey will provide the base for your salt scrub. Make sure your honey is at room temperature because it will be easier to work with. Pour honey into your small bowl until it’s almost half full.  Add enough salt to the honey to thicken it; mix thoroughly. The mixture should be thick enough to stick to the back of the spoon without dripping. Continue adding salt by the teaspoon and mixing it with the spoon until it’s the right consistency.
Spread the facial scrub on your face, gently. Start with your forehead and work down, avoiding the eye area. If the facial is too thick to spread easily, moisten your hands with warm water. Be sure not to pull or stretch your facial skin when applying the scrub.  Allow the scrub to sit on your face for about five minutes. The weight of it will draw the blood to the surface of your skin. Your face should appear slightly red and feel warm.
