Want to give someone a homemade gift this holiday season, which does not involve any cooking whatsoever? Try your hand at making this simple body scrub!
This is a very basic recipe that can be customized to your liking. It starts with sea salt, which acts as a powerful detoxifier and exfoliator to the skin. A carrier oil is added to moisturize, and it is then topped off with essential oils for scent. You can combine your favorites or use an individual scent like peppermint for a fresh, wintery body scrub.
