Herbal Body Scrub – Easy to Make, Great Gift!

leave a comment »

With only three or four ingredients and so little effort necessary, body scrub may be the easiest of the “luxury cosmetics” to replicate at home. You can pay high dollars for a jar (they average $20.00 to $40.00 a pop), but chances are you already have the ingredients to make a delectable scrub (recipe here) at home! If you have some coarse-ground sea salt (or sugar), some oil (olive, almond, coconut, jojoba, etc…), and some herbs or spices around, you have everything you need.

The most basic, fragrance-free scrub could be just sea salt and oil, great for someone who has sensitive skin! Or you can get wildly creative – try adding just a few drops of essential oils or some spices from your spice cabinet. Next, all you need is a reusable jar: a 6- to 8-ounce tub with a wide mouth works best for scrubs. Reuse an old cosmetics container and make it a zero-waste project!

*Guys! This makes a great, (and inexpensive!) gift for the ladies on your list…just saying!
