Almond Milk

Almond Milk

This is a wonderful product for anyone who has dry or aged skin. Almond
oil lubricates and softens the skin, and glycerin helps it retain
moisture. The herbal waters are astringent and toning.

1/2 cup rose, lavender, or distilled water
1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
1/4 to 1 teaspoon almond oil
12 drops grapefruit seed extract
5 to 10 drops essential oil for fragrance (optional)

Make rose or lavender water by placing a handful of dried lavender or rose petals in a glass mason jar and cover with boiling water. Seal and set overnight. Strain. Combine all the ingredients in a pretty jar and shake to blend. Note that vegetable glycerin is available in health food stores, as is grapefruit seed extract.
