Just made a batch of Ulyana’s fresh almond milk and are unsure what to do with the leftover pulp? Shes got the answer for you with this lovely almond and rosewater facial mask that will help soothe and hydrate dry or dehydrated skin. Raw honey acts as a mild anti-bacterial as well as water binding humectant, while rose acts to calm inflammation. The almond pulp helps gently soften and exfoliate away any dead skin cells. Leave on for 10-15 minutes until slightly dry, re-moisten and use as a gentle scrub before rinsing away with slightly warm water. Your food is organic, and your skin care should be as well!

Ingredients

 

1/2 cup almond pulp (you can soak almonds overnight a blitz in the food processor)

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp rose-water

a few red rose petals (optional)

 

Instructions

 

1) In a mini blender process all the ingredients until combined. You can just mix it all by hand but the blender turns it into a nice paste. This recipe will keep for up to 4- 5 days in an air tight container. The honey also acts as a preservative.

My name is Ulyana Michailov and I am a naturopath and acupuncturist with a clinic based in South Australia. This blog is a unique blend of my passion for NATURAL botanical health; my endeavours in the kitchen, the plant kingdom and all things creative and fun. Think food, art, spirituality, travel, health and a little bit of MAGIC. “Forest Faery” is all about connecting nature and humanity. My favourite past time is reflecting on nature, whether that be pottering about a herb garden or adventuring through a forest. My interests are in deep ecology, nature writing, photography and environmental protection and awareness. Even though I love the outdoors, I am also a very homely person and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. Areas I cover are raw food cuisine, baking, preserving, fermenting and pickling as well as concocting natural beauty recipes, herbal salves and ‘Magical Botanical’ herbal tea remedies. Each recipe is designed to taste heavenly but drawn from ingredients which can only be made by the EARTH. The plant kingdom amazes me with its rainbow brilliance, pigments that promise antioxidants and radiant health. These recipes can only add to your health, wellbeing and beauty, never take away. (Don’t be cynical!) I draw knowledge from naturopathy and combine it with my talent to make delicious food that’s appealing to the eye. The finishing touch is the sprinkling of my words.
