Mix the powdered oats, almonds, and rose petals. Stored in a cool, dry location, in a
tightly covered glass container, this mixture should keep for two months.
To make the facial mask combine:
• 2 teaspoons of cleansing grains
• 1/2 teaspoon of honey
• 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt.
Use whole milk yogurt because the high fat content adds moisturizing properties to the
mask. If your skin is very dry, add a few drops of jojoba oil. I also mix in 2 drops of
frankincense, an essential oil used since ancient Egypt to rejuvenate the skin. Wash your
face with warm water, pat dry, and apply the mask to your face and neck with your
fingertips using gentle circular motions. After 15 minutes (the mask will not harden),
remove with a warm, wet washcloth. Follow with a moisturizer.
