Homemade Body Scrub

Lora's Homemade Body Scrub

Lately I have been searching for a good body scrub.  I tried all sorts of body scrubs from the store, and nothing really impressed me so I decided to take matters into my own hands.  I looked up different recipes and decided to take what I liked from all of them and make my own.  I took 1/4  cup of Sugar in the Raw, 1/4 cup of regular white cane sugar and 1/3 cup of salt.  I then mixed them all in a bowl and added olive oil and baby oil until it was completely saturated.  (If you want to make it all-natural you can use only olive oil and omit the baby oil.)

That night I scrubbed my whole body down with my homemade scrub.  Rinsing it off was kind of a pain since it was so gritty, but it was worth it.  My skin felt so smooth and soft.  I was really impressed, it worked so much better then anything I had bought from the store. And the best part about it was how cheap it was since I used all products found in my pantry!

    This sounds heavenly :) Lush’s Ocean Salt is crazzzzy exfoiliating – I think it has grapefruit juice and vodka and sea salt — I don’t know… but it’s pretty harsh. This sounds like it would be soothing too. Great tip :)
