If a 41 year old man who works in a Michelin tire factory can make a DIY homemade salt and sugar scrub then anyone can make it.
I am becoming increasingly concerned about the chemicals that are used in commercial over the counter personal care products.
All of these chemicals just cannot be good for the human body.
I want to be healthy.
And of course I also want to be true to my minimalist lifestyle and am trying to be frugal too.
So I decided to make my own body scrub.
Here is what I did.
I got a small jar and put in two tablespoons of sugar and two table spoons of salt. I added three tablespoons of organic coconut oil and three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
I wanted some kind of a fruit in there as well so I mashed up a banana and threw that in too! Hell why not? I then stored my homemade body scrub in the fridge.
It was amazing!
I cannot believe how wonderful my skin felt after my next shower. So soft and smooth.
I get filthy at work and the sugar and salt in the scrub definitely did the trick in getting me clean. The coconut and olive oils are obviously what added the smoothness and softness.
Well worth the ten minutes I spent to make my own body scrub.
My next DIY homemade body scrub will be a brown sugar, honey and olive oil scrub. I can’t wait to try it out.
