How To Make Your Own Body Scrub

Have you ever wanted to make your own body scrubs or maybe you are switching to a more natural lifestyle and just need a starting point? Making your own body scrub is a simple and easy way to start your natural living journey.

While body scrubs can turn your shower into an invigorating and rejuvenating spa experience, they offer your skin many more benefits. An exfoliating body scrub cleanses your skin while gently buffing away dead skin cells to reveal a radiant new layer of young, smooth skin. Depending on the oils you use to make your body scrub, you can create a deeply nourishing and hydrated scrub. If you choose to use natural ingredients to make your scrub, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your scrub won't contain potentially damaging chemicals or preservatives that are found in many commercial scrubs. 

Most body scrubs are made of small, rough grains suspended in moisturizing, gentle bases. The grains, which are sometimes salt or sugar crystals, flecks of walnut, or even sand, exfoliate your skin by helping to loosen dead skin cells so that they can be rinsed away. The oils in scrub help to care for the live skin cells left behind by providing a gentle, protective layer of moisture that will help your skin glow with health and beauty. 

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.
