Mix up a batch of homemade body scrub and turn your bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Turn on some music, have a glass of wine and pamper yourself. Exfoliating with a body scrub will leave your skin rejuvenated, soft and healthy.
Glowing skin exfoliating scrub
Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.
Sweet vanilla treat
Mix 1 cup of granulated sugar along with 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 cup of chamomile tea and 2 Tbsp olive oil. This scrub is a fantastic treat for the shower.
Sensational strawberry scrub
Combine 2 large mashed strawberries, 1/2 cup sugar and 12 drops of jojoba oil. Use everywhere from your face to your heels. (Be sure you aren’t allergic to strawberries!)
Lemon body scrub
Mix 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1 cup honey, 2 Tbsp sweet almond oil and 2 Tbsp vegetable oil in a large bowl. Slowly add 2 cups sugar while stirring. Store in a plastic container for up to a month. Gentle enough for both face and body.
