Eco-Beauty 2: Scrubs

Hello ladies!!

Since my last eco friendly post had so many good reviews and readers I decided to post something else in the same note. This time body Scrubs!! yes it is highly recomended to scrub our skin at least once a week to get rid of all dead skin and achieve a lovely natural glow, just like nature intended. But many of the scrubs available in shops are full of nasty chemicals and lets face it toxic – worse part is that we PAY for them harming not only ourselves in the long term but the environment, so here is a few environmentally and pocket friendly ideas you can make with stuff you might already have in your cupboards…

Peppermint Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil, 2 T. corn syrup, 1/2 t. peppermint extract and a drop of green food colouring (optional)

Brown Sugar and Honey Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil and 2 T. honey.

Sugar Cookie Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup raw sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil, 2 T. corn syrup and 1 t. vanilla.

Sea Goddess:

Mix 1 cup of sea salt with a few table spoons of olive oil to create a thick paste.

Basil and Sugar

Mix half a cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of olive oil and  1-2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped – blend well.

Happy pampering!

  1. * Used the Basil & sugar last night, and it left my skin super soft! I added a little squirt of body lotion (unscented) to the mix before using for an extra creamy texture. I was great and it smells so nice with the basil.. I definitely recommend it !!
