I make my own Almond Milk twice a week. It’s pretty simple and I notice a huge difference in my body when i’m consuming homemade vs. commercial. The biggest difference is I don’t have crazy stomach pains and aches!
With all that Homemade Almond Milk comes a lot of Homemade Almond Paste! I’ve put it in smoothies, dried it out for Almond Flour/Meal, and sometimes I make a mask out of it. The small particles are great for lightly exfoliating the skin. This is a great way to use up some of your Almond Milk ‘wastes’ called Almond Paste.
I’m a huge fan of homemade masks such as my Oatmeal Banana Mask or Baking Soda Facial but this one kills two birds with one stone. I do something good for my body on the inside and out AND i’m able to further use a great, natural product.
Almond Paste Lavender Mask
1/2 cup of Almond Paste (great for light exfoliation and cooling of the skin)
2 Tablespoons of Honey (Great for antibacterial purposes)
A few drops of Lavender Oil or Rose Water (To reduce inflammation and redness)
Stir together all of the ingredients and brush or spread on to face and neck. Once dry (about 15 minutes) use some water to re-wet the facial and scrub your skin lightly before rinsing well.
