In honor of Earth Day, I thought I'd do a quick repost for a homemade body scrub made with common items that you may just have on hand.  Save another container that may contain harmful preservatives and mix up your own batch for your next shower.  I promise, this doesn't disappoint!

Refreshing homemade body scrub
A friend of mine emailed me this recipe a few weeks ago and I think it's from Whole Living Magazine.
  • 1 tsp pure honey
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1 cup raw or granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp fresh citrus zest (lemon gives a super fresh scent)
This scrub leaves your skin amazingly soft and it's gentle enough to use on the face and neck.  And the biggest bonus, it's all natural and doesn't have any of those yucky dangerous chemicals and perservatives!  AND all the ingredients were already in my kitchen.  Check your kitchen, if you have the ingredients, I suggest whipping up a batch tonight for a pre-Bachelor relaxing shower!

I love this for spring. I've made brown sugar scrub, but never lemon. Love the idea of lemon, fresh and 'bright'. Ok....making some soon.....
