Many natural ingredients have skin-soothing properties. Fennel is good for sensitive skin, while chervil helps moisturize dry skin.

<p>Sugar makes a gentle facial scrub that freshens and stimulates skin, and it is gentle enough to use on delicate skin types. Mix in your favorite herb or flower petals for scent. <em>Makes 8 ounces.<br />
<br />
• 1 cup granulated sugar<br />
• 1/4 cup dried flower petals or herb leaves, such as rose, lavender or basil</p>
<p>1. Mix sugar and dried petals or herbs in a clean, dry, glass jar. Cover with a tight fitting lid or plastic wrap and set aside in a dry spot for a few weeks.</p>
<p>2. To use, pour a small amount of scented sugar into the palm of your hand and mix with water or your favorite cleanser. Massage onto face and rinse well with warm water. </p>
