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…
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.
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.
