To make a scrub, all you need to do is to pair a naturally abrasive ingredient with a soothing and moisturizing base. The most popular and practical abrasive for homemade body scrubs is sugar or fine salt grains. Fine or small grains are able to melt easily and provide gentle exfoliation, so you can be sure that your body scrub will help your skin rather than harm it.
You can be creative when making a base for your invigorating and exfoliating scrub. You can use a variety of carrier oils and even butter like Shea butter to create a nourishing base.
Last but not least is adding a scent. I use essential oils to scent my products as they provide amazing aromatherapy benefits as well as benefits for your skin.
