I am absolutely obsessed with body scrubs. I used to spend tons of money on pricey ones, but I have found that i have everything I need at home to make a wide variety of body scrubs that are even better than what I have bought in the past. I am going to list some of my favorites. The best part is you can mix and match ingredients or substitute for what you prefer.
Olive Oil Scrubs
I always have olive oil on hand so I like to add 1/4 cup of olive oil to 1 cup sea salt and add 5 drops of peppermint.
I also enjoy using 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
Sea Salt is fabulous and makes my rough winter skin silky and soft
Add 1/4 cup olive oil to 1 cup Sea Salt and add 6 drops of lavender
Safflower Oil Scrubs
I love taking 1/4 cup safflower oil adding in a cup or Sea Salt and add 5 drops of your favorite essential oil
Safflower Oil 1/4 cup and 1 cup of sugar and 4 drops of lavender and 4 drops of mint oils is a favorite
Not everyone has tried these but they promote youthful skin and weight loss
I add 1 cup fresh Coffee Grinds to 1/4 cup your choice of oil I like coconut oil the best but safflower and Olive oils work good too.
This time of year I also like to do a morning lip scrub to keep my lips from being flaky and dry
Tablespoon of sugar add teaspoon of olive oil and 2 drops of peppermint mix well coat lips and use old toothbrush to rub into lips wash off with warm water and i just coat my lips with gloss or vaseline and enjoy smooth silky lips all day.
