Homemade Lavendar Body Scrub

Homemade Lavendar Body Scrub

Lately I have been so into scrubs! Homemade and some bought ones. I’ve really always been more of a ‘Tomboy’ than a ‘Girly Girl’ but I will tell you ever since I have gotten into scrubs my skin has never felt so soft or alive. I have fallen in love with some of the organic scrubs from Daisy Blue Naturals as well as some from a Etsy friend I found at It’s the Balm. I’ve also had some fun making my own.

Recently from my girl trip to Vegas I found out my girlfriend has been using store bought crappy soft soap…ekkk right!! I promised her I would make her some and send it to her so she can see the difference. For those who don’t know most store body washes can do more harm to your skin than good. They work against you with harsh chemicals that can dry out your skin.

It’s so easy to make some homemade organic ones so, take 15 minutes and do your body a favor!Continue Reading
