Basil – Lime Body Scrub

The great thing about a body scrub with natural ingredients like salt and sugar, is that it not only exfoliates your skin, it polishes it, leaving it amazingly soft and smooth!  Who does not need that after a drying winter indoors?

Sugar scrub

But on top of all that, it also opens up your pores so your body can detox itself of toxins and prevent against infections! Who knew such a luxurious beauty regime would have such a huge impact on our health as well?  And Basil is a natural anti-inflammatory and protector of the skin from free radicals.

Basil – Lime Body Scrub

1 Cup white sugar

5-6 medium basil leaves, chopped into small pieces

Zest and juice of ½ of a lime

1 tsp coconut oil

Add all ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk together until combined. To release more of the basil’s fragrance, use the back of a spoon to mash the basil into the side of the bowl. This will break it down into even smaller pieces.

Put into a cute glass jar and attach a cute label with a piece of twine or something similar.

To use:  Using gentle pressure, roll granules over skin. Concentrate on rough areas like elbows and knees. If you use it on your face, be extra gentle and avoid eyes.
