Body Scrub

In honor of Earth day, I'm going to post some eco diy ideas, such as homemade body scrub! Here are some Recipes I favored:

At Thrifty Fun there was a forum and here was one of the girl's face wash recipe:
sea salt
olive oil
Captain Morgains Parrot Bay Coconut Rum

Bliss Tree
Vanilla beans or extract
Organic lavender essential oil
Any old container with a lid

There's a whole list at Craft Bits but here is my fav.

Mango body Scrub
1 mango chopped
1/4 cup Instant oats
1 cup of castor sugar
1 tbs sweet almond oil
4 drops orange essential oil
1 tbs pineapple juice

Best in Cosmetics
Tomato Wrap Recipe
Homemade Orange and Lemon Peel Body Scrub Recipe
dried peel powder(they explain what this is)
wheat bran or porridge grains
and a little milk

DIY Life
What you'll need

Table salt
Oil - recipe calls for olive oil but I used grape seed oil
small container

Also she has a little secret for stretch marks, visit her page to find out what it is!

The Creative Mama
sugar / epsom salt
grape seed oil
essential oil(s)
food coloring (if desired)
mixing bowl

Martha Stewert

Tools and Materials
2 cups Epsom salts or organic cane sugar
1 cup carrier oil
8 drops essential oil(s)
1 drop food coloring
Special equipment: plastic pipette, canning jars

I basically figured out you need something for texture (rice, salt, sugar), oil (vegetable, olive, grape seed etc), and something for smell. those are the three base ingredients. Well Happy Earth Day! Here is a little preview of my newest items to be listed.
