This rose petal scrub is perfect for a silky smooth finish. Roses have lots of natural oils that keep in moisture. The petals are also Vitamin C rich, which is why many beauty products use them as an ingredient. The yogurt in this mixture contains lactic acid, which works to get rid of dead skin. This is extremely helpful if you suffer from dry lips.


Here are all the ingredients you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons of crushed rose petals (or rose petal powder) 


Once you have all your ingredients, follow these steps:

  1. Put the rose petals in a blender or coffee grinder and grind them up. (Skip this step if you are using rose petal powder).
  2. Mix the ground rose petals with the yogurt and honey in a bowl until you get a scrub-like consistency.
