Maca Vitality Scrub

Maca Vitality Scrub:

YIELDS: about 1 pint

1⁄2 cup maca powder

1⁄4 cup coconut flour

1⁄2 cup kaolin clay

1⁄2 cup fine granulated sugar

1 tablespoon raw cocoa/cacao powder

What you will need: face mask, pint-size canning jar with lid, spice jar with sifter cap optional.

1. To Make: Before you begin, find a protective face mask, or tie a bandana to cover your nose and mouth, to avoid breathing the powders. Carefully place all of the powdered ingredients into the canning jar. Close the lid tightly and shake well to blend to a uniform powder. Let stand for 5 minutes or so, letting the dust settle into the jar.

2. To Store: Store this dry facial scrub in a spice jar with a sifter cap. To fill the jar, make a funnel by rolling up a piece of paper. Twist one end to open wide enough to fit into the spice jar, and the other wider to funnel in the powder. Tape it together and spoon the powder into the jar a little at time.

Once the jar is full, replace the sifter and cap, and this scrub is ready to use! You can also store these in the pint jar or transfer to a smaller jar, using a clean dry spoon to dispense the cleansing grains for each use. Keep the lid tightly closed and store for up to a year.

3. To Use: To use, simply tap out a bit of the powder into the palm of your hand and mix with water added a tiny bit at a time until a paste forms. Then softly cleanse your face using small circular motions. Rinse with warm water and follow with toner and moisturizer.
