DIY Body Scrub

Did you know that you can find ingredients in your kitchen that can be used to make delicious smelling face, body, and foot scrubs?  Oatmeal, cornmeal, sugar and salt can be used as exfoliants.  Then you can add moisturizing ingredients like avocado and honey for the face.  Coconut oil or olive works great for the body and feet , but if your skin has a tendency to breakout you can substitute honey or yogurt.  Citrus juices such as lemon, lime or orange can also be added because they act as astringents; and for a more aromatic scrub, just put a few drops of skin-friendly essential oil.  Here, try this yummy body scrub....
