Papaya + Banana and Amaranth Gentle Spring Scrub!!

This is a delicious, vitamin and mineral packed scrub perfect for celebrating the Spring Equinox and one of the recipes from last nights 'RAW food for the Skin' class at the Green Home Center in SF.

p.s. Don't worry about over-using this scrub. It's perfect for every day use and provides the skin with everything it needs all in one shot!!

Be sure to store the finished goods in the fridge....treat it like fresh food!

The Recipe:

1/2 papaya, seedless
1 banana, broke into pieces
1 tsp of amaranth (a grain found in most bulk sections at the store)
1/2 honey dew or other melon
1 tsp of almond meal (or grind your own almonds)

* a tsp of honey is optional and will help preserve the scrub so it lasts longer*

Place everything in a food processor or blender and mix thoroughly, then store in a glass jar.
Massage gently on to damp skin and rinse.
You could also massage it on the entire body...hey, why not??

For dry skin: add a tsp of your favorite oil ( i like almond, shea and jojoba)
For oily skin: squeeze a tsp of grapefruit, orange, lemon or citrus of choice.

Peace + Love,
