Natural DIY Body Scrubs

Exfoliating will make your skin look brighter and feel smoother. While our skin naturally exfoliates our daily body lotion, sweat, and oil can slow the natural process of shedding dead skin cells. No need to buy an exfoliator when you can make these natural DIY body scrubs at home with ingredients you already have in your kitchen pantry.

Coconut Oil Body Scrub

As with all the scrub recipes below, scrub gently to exfoliate your hands, body, and feet 1 to 2 times per week. These scrubs are designed for your hands, body, and feet—not your face. For best results, leave your scrub on for 5 minutes before you wash it off. The oil in the scrubs is slippery so be careful in the shower. All of these scrubs expire in 6 months, but if used weekly they won’t last that long.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 ml Holmes Organics CBD
  • 8 drops peppermint, lavender, or citrus essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. If your coconut oil has solidified, place the jar in a bowl with warm water.
  2. Store in a glass jar for up to 6 months.
