Rose Earl Grey Scrub

This DIY rose earl grey scrub was born out of my two latest obsession: rose-infused things and earl grey tea. There’s something so soothing about the scent of roses, especially in tea or candle form. And then there’s earl grey, a tea that has managed to replace my coffee addiction. (There, I said it.) It’s even gotten to the point where I no longer drink coffee every day. And as someone who is known for not being able to function without a cup of joe… that says something.

And while I still love the occasional coffee, the aroma of earl grey is something else. So you can imagine how much I adore this rose earl grey scrub. Let’s count it is a Galentine’s Day gift to myself.

The best part? It can be used for both the face and body. It can even be applied as a face mask, which is my personal favorite way to use it. Here’s how to make versatile yet simple scrub!

Yields: 8 ounces




1. Grind the oats. I prefer working in batches for this step. You can pulverize all of the oats into a fine powder or grind some “halfway” for a mixture.

2. Grind the rose petals.

3. Mix with the ground oats, petals, and earl grey tea.

That’s it! Here’s how I like to use this mixture:

Face Scrub:

  • 1 tablespoon rose earl grey scrub
  • 1 tablespoon honey, aloe vera gel, or coconut oil

Mix together. Rub into your face with a gentle circular motion. Rinse and pat dry.

Face Mask:

  • 1 tablespoon rose earl grey scrub
  • 1 tablespoon honey, aloe vera gel, or plain yogurt

Mix and apply to face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then rinse off. Pat dry.

Body Scrub:

  • 1 tablespoon rose earl grey scrub
  • 1 tablespoon jojoba, coconut, avocado, or grapeseed oil

Mix and rub on to skin using a gentle circular motion. Focus on the elbows, knees, and feet. Rinse off.

Obviously, you can mix and match these ingredients according to your preference/skin needs/what you have on hand. For example, I personally avoid using coconut oil on my face since it makes me break out. But it could be awesome for you!
