STRAWBERRY HAND AND FOOT SCRUB
Strawberries contain a natural fruit acid which aids in exfoliation.
Ingredients: 8-10 Strawberries, 2 tablespoons Apricot Oil (you may substitute olive oil), 1 teaspoon of coarse salt such as Kosher Salt, or Sea Salt.
Mix together all ingredients into a paste, massage into hands and feet, rinse, and pat dry. The mixture is a bit messy, so protect floors and clothes. (courtesy of www.SpaIndex.Com )
GLYCERIN AND HONEY SUGAR SCRUB
Ingredients: 1 cup fine loose salt or loose sugar, 3 teaspoons liquid glycerin, 1 teaspoon pure honey and 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil. Optional: Pinch of lavender blossoms (available in the bulk department of good health food stores), or chamomile, or dried herbs of your choice, chopped exceedingly fine.
Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container. Add more liquid ingredients if you prefer a thinner end-product. Stir thoroughly before use. This keeps very well, and in fact, the honey acts as preservative. Scrub hands and feet. Rinse in warm water, pat dry, and apply your favorite lotion afterward. (courtesy of www.SpaIndex.Com )
