You could say that I'm a "Connoisseur" of Body Scrubs, I'm all about exfoliating. I have bought the expensive stuff and I have also bought the stuff that is home made. Both can be expensive. So I decided to make my own. And give it as gifts to the women in my life that I know love a good soak and indulgence now and again!
The first I made is a body scrub, I have used this myself and it's FANTASTIC! I put no scent in mine, but you can put any scent you want.
SUGAR AND OAT BODY SCRUB
1 Cup White Sugar.
1 Cup Raw Steel Oatmeal.
1 Cup Olive Oil.
Mix well. Literally apply to skin and s-c-r-u-b! Rinse well.
This will make your skin as soft as a babies, however keep in mind that because it contains sugar, rinse well... also because it contains olive oil... make sure your tub isn't slippery when you get out of the bath!
I also made...
Lemon Sea Salt Facial Scrub
5 Tbsp Sea Salt
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Mix olive oil and sea salt together. Once the salt is coated by the oil the lemon won't dissolve it. Mix the lemon in (Really as much as you want, as lemon is really good for skin and smell wonderful!), Mix and Mash and Mash and Mix...
Then Scrub away.
If you have oily skin, this one is probably not the best choice for the face, but I have dry skin and it's perfect on mine. Again... careful when rinsing the tub and getting out... Oil is slippery!
