We live in the midwest and the winters here are brutal! My skin tends to get a little alligator-esque during the cold months. So I like treat myself to an in-home spa day about once a week. This homemade body scrub is amazing! The best part is that it contains no yucky chemicals, it costs about 50 cents and takes 5 minutes to make.
Spoon mixture into small jars. Keep one jar in your shower and any extra jars refrigerated for later.
Enjoy your newly made scrub!
P.S. Citrus essential oils, such as the ones used in this recipe, magically erase cellulite!
P.P.S. Use this scrub on your legs and you won't need to use any shaving cream OR moisturizer afterwards.
P.P.P.S. If you don't have any oils yet, be sure you get the good stuff. I use Young Living because of their superior commitment to quality and purity. The best bet is always be to start with the Premium Starter Kit. This kit comes with Lemon, Thieves, Purification, and 9 other essential oils. To stay super cost effect you could make your first scrub using 15-20 drops of lemon and 1 drop of Thieves or Purification to maintain freshness.
