short and sweet body scrub

First things first… congrats to Jill Eager for winning this week’s World Market gift card!  Shoot us an email at with your address and we will get it to you!  Tune in the next 3 Monday’s for more giveaways.

My sister–in-law is in town, and she always has something awesome up her sleeve.  She’s been thumbing through Mimi Kirk’s Live Raw and came across an easy, affordable body scrub.  As mentioned here, I really love using things I have around the house for beauty products.

More than once, I have used coffee grounds as a scrub, but it always makes a huge mess.  This scrub is much cleaner, and you only need 2 ingredients!

Simply mix equal parts vegetable glycerin and high quality salt such as Real Salt or Himalayan.  Done!

If you’d like you can add in a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a fragrant experience, but I just use it plain.

Store it in a mason jar, and keep it by your tub.  Exfoliating every few days clears pores and improves skin clarity. As with all beauty products, quality ingredients are important.

Have a great day!
