Introduction

This simple and effective DIY homemade body scrub is the perfect addition to your self-care routine. The nourishing body oil hydrates skin while the salt or sugar grains act as an exfoliant. It's so good that we recommend making an extra batch and giving it as a gift this holiday season.

materials

  • Body oil (Burt's Bees "Mama Bee Nourishing" Body Oil, $6.99, target.com)

  • Epsom salt, sea salt, or organic cane sugar

  • 12 oz. jar with cap

  • Lemon zest

steps

  1. Combine one cup of body oil with two cups of Epsom salt, sea salts, or organic cane sugar—choose between the three depending on how fine a grain you like.

  2. Add lemon zest for color and fragrance. Package in jars (plastic is safest by the tub).
