Homemade Apricot Face Scrub with Kernels Powder & Honey

Apricot Face Scrub is made by sifting and grinding dried apricot kernels until they are finely ground. This powder is often used for beauty products, particularly skincare products because of its ability to cause gentle abrasion that’s great for exfoliation.  This exfoliant effectively and gently removes damaged skin cells to promote the growth of new ones.

Rhassoul clay to draws out impurities

A natural mineral clay, the Rhassoul clay can only be sourced from Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. It has long been used for hair and skin, mainly because of its ability to take out impurities. It’s a great ingredient for shampoos, skin conditioners and soaps, plus other therapeutic products currently used by spas and salons. Aside from removing impurities, Rhassoul clay can also be used for deep cleansing, exfoliation, preventing oily skin, soothing irritated skin, and tightening large pores.

How to grind Apricot Face Scrub

You can grind apricot kernels into powder with a fast blender or even better Vitamix blender. The important thing is that you need blades that are thick and sturdy so you can grind hard beans or hard nuts.

Ingredients for Apricot Face Scrub

  • 2 tsp Apricot kernel powder (instructions how to make it below)
  • 1 tsp Rhassoul clay
  • 3 tsp maple syrup


  • Start by grinding the apricot kernels in a fast blender if you bought the actual apricot kernel. You need to reduce it to a fine powder. I suggest you use a Vitamix or a ninja blender. It needs to be powerful enough to grind really hard nuts! If you managed to find apricot kernel powder, then of course not need to grind it!
  • Mix all the ingredients into a small bowl until they are well integrated. You may opt to whisk them, but just folding them in with a spatula will do.
  • Apply directly to the face and massage gently for a few minutes in small circular motions.
  • Rinse well with lukewarm water and apply your daily moisturizer.
  • You may store the leftovers in a small container for a few weeks as long as there is no contamination with water.
  • Sift the apricot kernel powder with a sieve. Read More………….
