Romany The Cat's Note:
This recipe came from "The Body Bible" by Pamela Allardice. I use it often and it is really cheap and works well even on very sensitive skin (like mine). I buy my kaolin clay from a ceramics supply shop and it is very cheap...I think the last time I bought it i paid about $3.50 for 5kg (about 11 lbs). I sometimes add thyme to the parsley, this is good for loosening blackheads. Make sure you use course ground almond meal, the last meal I bought was fine and it doesn't work anywhere near as well as the course stuff.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 -5 tablespoons parsley, infusion
- 2 tablespoons course ground almond meal
- 2 tablespoons kaolin clay (or Fullers Earth ?)
- 1Roughly chop the parsley and put into a non-aluminium saucepan.
- 2Add about 150ml of water, simmer over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes.
- 3I usually just chop the parsley, place in a cup and pour over boiling water, leave to steep for about 10 minutes.
- 4Measure into almond/clay mix until required consistency is met.
- 5Too dry and it will be hard to scrub with, too wet and it will run everywhere.
- 6Cleanse with your favorite cleanser then apply scrub in a circular motion.
- 7Any excess I use on the backs of my hands.
- 8Sometimes I even scrub around the back of my neck too especially in summer after being at the beach.
- 9Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
