Numerous remedies for dry skin can be found around the house, from using sugar as an exfoliant, to slathering on greek yogurt as a mask. Martha Stewart’s ‘Home Made Body Scrub’ is no exception, utilizing items you most likely have on hand.
- Body oil, Burt’s Bees
- Epsom salt, sea salt, or organic cane sugar
- 12 oz. PET Jar with cap, sks-bottle.com (different from the one I used).
- Lemon zest
Combine 1 cup of body oil with 2 cups of Epsom or sea salts or organic cane sugar (depending on how fine a grain you like). Add lemon zest for color and fragrance. Package in jars (plastic is safest by the tub).
