Homemade Honey Lemon Lavender Face Scrub

As I mentioned in my recent post, I have switched to a brand new skin care regimen with Peacock Apothecary that is all natural, handmade to order, all of their products are free of any chemicals and preservatives and locally sourced when possible, etc. Additionally, as part of my routine I am still using my homemade apple cider ginger toner every time I wash and I added in a homemade exfoliant that I use twice a week, at the recommendation of the girls at Peacock Apothecary.

This recipe is something I can put together very quickly and simply. I make up this small batch and keep it in the shower for the week. I have been loving how my skin feels after this gentle scrub, it is smoother than ever and I feel like my skin is as clean as it ever could be. It is super gentle and the scent is so soothing and calming.

Here is my current skin care routine:

Daily in the morning:
Wash with Coconut Milk cleanser from PA,
Tone with homemade apple cider vinegar toner
Moisturize with citrus serum from PA

Daily in the evening: Wash, toner, serum (same products as above)

Twice a week I use this scrub in the evening (or morning if that works better with my schedule) and at least once a week, more if needed, I make a probiotic mask.

Also, when using my face cleanser, twice a week, in the evening, on opposite days of when I use this face scrub, I use my Clarisonic Mia.

  • Juice from 1/2 organic lemon
  • 1 tablespoon honey (I used local raw honey, in its liquid state)
  • 1/4 cup sea salt (I used pink Himalayan sea salt)
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil

Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl, mix well to combine. To use: Mix the ingredients until well blended and massage on a damp face. Rinse well with warm water and finish with a splash of cold. Though the scrub’s nicest when used fresh, you can keep leftovers for up to a week or so.

  1. This scrub sounds so refreshing and invigorating! I love the combination of lemon and lavender essential oil together and they work miracles on your skin.

    I can’t wait to try this! Store bought beauty products creep me out to no avail (except Lush, which is mad expensive!) so I love these DIY fixes. I actually use the toner recipe you posted most days!

    Is there a vegan sub for the honey, or can I just omit?

    Love this! Will be making it!

    Hi Beth,
    Probably a silly question but would Australian Pink Salt do the job? Thanks in advance

    I also made this today…if you hadn’t already guest I’ve spent the day in my kitchen making recipes off your blog. It’s a official I would be lost without your page now. Thank you for making this trip so much easier. Doctors still say there is no way I’m celiac or gluten intolerant and now want to do some routine operations. I’ve never felt better decides the pain if I accidently eat gluten without knowing.
    Thanks a bunch

    Hi Beth,
    Excellent website. Thank you
    I have been reading your recommendations on skin/facial.
    I don’t believe you mentioned what skin types (oily, normal, dry, etc) they are for.
    I have dry skin and wondered if I need to alter any ingredients of your recommendations?
    (I am an older male but want to keep my skin in decent shape)
    Thank you,

  10. Candace says:

    Thanks for all the info on your site love it. Just had a quick question will the Apple cider vinegar toner lighten my eyebrows if I get some on them? Weird question I know.

  11. Nadine says:

    Hello, you mention that you use the citrus serum for your daily moisturizer, do you use any sunscreen at all on your face?

  12. Heather says:

    Where do you purchase the ingredients for your facial scrub?

  13. Jackie says:

    Will this be a good recipe for my daughter? She is 17. She suffers with blackheads and hor.onal breakouts on her face, shoulders, and back.

    Thanks for sharing this scrub recipe with your readers . Well I have started using Himalayan bath salt and I just love it. It can see visible results after using this amazing bath salt. My skin has become more soft and glowing. So, I am definitely going to try this scrub a well and will tell you the results. I have also started using this salt in my cooking as well and recently I have bought a Himalayan salt lamp from ittefaqco. It is as good as the salt itself.
