Crystallized Honey Scrub, Green Tea Rinse
One use for that crystallized honey which no one will eat: Beforehand, boil 2 pints or so of water — enough to use for rinsing your face well. Remove from heat, steep a few handfuls of loose green tea for 10 minutes. Strain into a large bowl that will fit in your kitchen or bathroom sink and cool to WARM.
Then, scoop out honey from its container with a clean narrow spatula. Spread on face with spatula. Massage GENTLY: the crystallized honey “sloughs” or exfoliates beautifully but it can hurt if you’re rough. Leave on 20 minutes. Put the large bowl of warm green tea in the sink and splash on to rinse well. Tea can stain your “good” pale towels, so pat dry with an “old” or dark one.
