I love making my own body care products whenever possible. It's the best way to know you are avoiding any harsh chemicals.
Now that it's the holiday season, they are also great gift ideas, and oh-so-easy to make.
Use fancy wrapping to make them look extra special for someone you love. And don't forget to add a label so they know what they are getting!
Luscious Salt Scrub
Find a nice medium size glass jar, such as a small jelly canning jar.
Mix together 1 cup of coarse salt or epsom salt (or sugar for a sugar scrub!) with 1/2 cup of oil (olive, avocado, almond, etc.) and 8 drops of your favorite essential oil. Scoop it into your jar and decorate it with something pretty. Done!
