DIY Flaxseed Scrub

Let’s talk flax seeds. They. Are. The. Shit. The end. ūüėČ Ha¬†seriously, they’re packed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and they¬†increase your body’s natural oil production, helping keep¬†your skin youthful and¬†soft.¬†They’re also loaded with antioxidants (mega wrinkle-fighters!) and they minimize inflammation, so if you have rosacea, acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, you need to get with this scrub! Slough off dead skin cells and look like a foin young homie… c’mon now.

DIY Flaxseed Scrub

  • 1¬†tablespoons¬†flaxseed meal
  • 2 teaspoons¬†granulated vegan sugar
  • 2 tablespoons¬†sweet almond oil (can sub coconut, olive, or jojoba oil)


Mix your ingredients well in a blender or by hand. Apply to face and gently scrub in a circular motion. Wash off with warm water and follow with your favorite vegan toner and moisturizer. Tada!

    Can you add any essential oils to this recipe if so how much would you recommend?

    • Sunny says:

      You sure can! I’d recommend lavender, which is relaxing and perfect for all skin types. Maybe start out with 5-10 drops and add more depending on how strong of a scent you like. ūüôā

  2. Thanks for this recipe. I eat ground flax all the time but have never, ever seen it used in homemade cosmetics!
