Before making this scrub:
Keep in mind :
- This mixture will keep for a couple of days in a glass jar in the fridge.
- If you’re allergic to nuts, avoid using this scrub for your skin.
- Avoid putting too much essential oil, it can irritate your skin. 1 drop is perfect.
- If you’ve never used almond oil on your skin before, do a patch test before applying it on your skin, if there are no signs of redness, itching, burning, or swelling within a few hours, the scrub is likely safe to use on your skin.
How to use:
