Doterra Lemon Oil Face Scrub

Isn’t food amazing? All the different benefits that we can reap, even when we aren’t eating it?!
There are so many things that we can do with things around the kitchen, besides make delicious goodies.

I’ve got a recipe for a face scrub that not only cultivates the benefits of raw honey but also Doterra Oils!

It’s important to use raw honey. Raw means that it is taken directly from the hive, bottled and sold to you. No alterations, to cook time. Nothing. Which means that all the health benefits are there. Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory and is anti-bacterial. Honey is good for when you have a cold, or a sore throat. The honey will take down the swelling and kill what ever it is that is making you sick. I love drinking my honey in tea! Raw honey is also said to help relieve seasonal allergies.
I used Pure honey from the grocery store. It still has some of the same properties, mostly moisturizing. Which is OK because the Lemon Oil will add all the benefits I need. I have raw honey in the house, but not enough for this recipe. I’d rather hold onto it for my tea 😉

I am using the honey topically here, it is so good for your skin. Not only it extremely moisturizing, but being anti-bacterial and an anti-inflammatory, it helps with existing and to prevent breakouts.

Also in this recipe I’ve added Doterra’s Lemon Oil for the same reasons. The lemon oil will clean your face, while killing all the pimple and blackhead causing nastiness! Ha!

1/2c Raw honey
1/4c baking soda
2tsp cinnamon
5 drops of Doterra Lemon Oil


I use this 3 times a week in the shower and my skin is thanking me! Ha!

Food on my Face

I have terribly dry skin in the winter and terribly oily skin in the summer! I cant catch a break! Ha!
I’ve tried using all the expensive skin care treatments to help even out my moisture (Mostly I do this for my face, hands and legs.) I’ve bought toners and skin brighteners and anything else I could think of to try to even out my completion (acne,chicken pox scars and freckles.)
Actually I cant say everything because I refuse to buy a bunch of expensive makeup and just hide my face from the world. I realize that this is some people’s preference, its just not mine.

For my face twice a week I like to use a scrub I make at home. The honey and olive oil are very moisturizing while the brown sugar acts as the exfoliate. Honey is a good remedy for acne, this has natural antibacterial properties.
Raw Honey, Brown Sugar and Olive Oil.
I don’t have measurements, I just mix them until I come to a consistency I like.

I also make a facial toner I use every night. Witch Hazels helps to even skin tone, and reduce redness and lemon juice helps to brighten skin. You can find a bottle of the witch hazel at Walmart with the rubbing alcohol and peroxide. It’s inexpensive as well. I think I may have paid $4 for mine.
1/2 C. water
1 C. witch hazel
Juice from one whole lemon.


The skin on my legs is very sensitive, especially when I have to shave every other day in the summer so I don’t look like Chewbaca! Every other time I shave I use a scrub I made with coconut oil and Epsom salt. The coconut oil ads a good amount of moisture while the Epsom salt helps to decrease inflammation, redness and irritation. NOW Epsom salt is SALT. I use it after I’ve already shaved my legs and its… salty! It tingles and may be a little burny! You could use it before you shave, but then you run the risk of gunking up your razor.
I just use a couple tablespoons of coconut oil and sprinkle in the Epsom salt. Only enough that its slightly gritty in texture.
