Handcrafted Body Care Recipes
It's time to get rid of the dull winter skin by exfoliating and increasing the circulation. Body Scrubs and Polishes are easy to make with a few ingredients already in your kitchen.
A very simple scrub is made by mixing one of your favorite oils - like olive or avocado - with some sea salt or raw sugar.
Here's a simple recipe for Oatmeal Body Scrub:
1/4 C Cornmeal
1/4 C Rolled Oats - ground fine
1/4 Almonds - ground fine
1T Oil of your choice
10 Drops Essential Oil of choice
Use a food processor or coffee grinder to grind your oats and almonds. Mix dry ingredients. Drop in the Essential Oil and mix well. Add Oil of your choice right before use. In a warm shower wet your skin and then massage scrub in a gentle circular motion.
After showering with your Scrub or Polish of choice follow up with a great moisturizer or body oil.
