This moisturising, exfoliating scrub is so easy to make at home that we wanted to share it with you. The basic recipe is below but you can add your own seasonal twist with different essential oils and fresh flowers or herbs. In early summer, we love to create the sugar scrub with fresh lavender buds and the salt scrub with peppermint oil and fresh peppermint from our garden.
4-5 teaspoons sugar or sea salt
1 teaspoon of light olive oil
1 drop of the essential oil of your choice
Mix together well. To use, massage into wet skin in the shower and then rinse well.
We advise you not to use this on your face until you are comfortable with how coarse it is. It may not be suitable for the face if you have sensitive skin.
