Homemade Scrubs

I used to make this all the time with my sis, trying out new recipes in the kitchen. Our favourite was the ground apricot seed scrub with pureed tropical fruits. Edible and bursting with antioxidants & vitamins for the skin. You can make masks, scrubs, bath soaks or fizzies (very popular these days), soap, hair masks.

With simple ingredients from your kitchen, you can make your own bath products. I would recommend homemade scrubs as it is the easiest to whip up and gift (not everyone has a bathtub). Look for the purest form of each ingredient: oils have to be 100% pure, extra virgin or cold-pressed, naturally found sea salts and cane sugar straight from the plantation. Oh yes! and seasonal fruits from the market.

Then add in essential oils for scent, colour and other healing properties. A couple drops of tea tree essential oil to help the body heal always helps.
