Almond Flour

Almond Flour can make a lovely addition to your next home spa treatment.  Almond Flour has been an integral part of Indian, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern food, folk medicine and skin care.  The creation of the natural ubtan, a special kind of body mask and scrub, is an especially intriguing example of Almond Flour being used in a traditional manner.  Ubtans combine Almond Flour and other grains with Milk, Honey, and Ayurvedic Herbs and Spices such as Sandalwood Powder and Rose Petal Powder.  The skin is massaged with this mixture until it dries and crumbles away, leaving the skin soft and nourished.

Almonds are one of the most nutritional nuts, containing a high amount of Vitamin E as well as several nutritious minerals.  Almonds are high in Magnesium, Phosphorous, Calcium and Potassium.  Almond Flour is made from carefully blanched almonds which are later ground into a fine, cream colored powder.  This powder retains a high yield of the nutrients found in raw almonds.  Almond Flour is a wonderful way to nourish the skin while providing gentle exfoliation.  While Almond Flour is an excellent choice for your next body scrub, it can also be useful in many other recipes!  Try adding Almond Flour to bath melts, bath bombs, or exfoliating soaps.
