There is a sea salt scrub body scrub by Origins that I have been using on and off since I was 14. It is a great, natural exfoliate and moisturizer. It had never occurred to me to make my own until I read the ingredients and realized most of them were common panty items. So I did a little research and came up with a very simple recipe. I used a rose essential oil because I had some on hand, but you could use any of your favorite scents as long as they don’t irritate the skin. Lemon, rosemary, lavender or ginger also smell great and are all complexion enhancing essential oils. But them online or check out your local Whole Foods or health store.
