Also, it’s hard to find time to relax and rejuvenate our bodies on a regular basis. The only way to go is to make it a part of what we do everyday.
Here’s a simple recipe of a homemade body scrub – that you can use when you take a bath everyday. It’s rich with minerals that heal and repair your body everyday. At first glance you may find some of the ingredients cumbersome to gather, but you can rest assure that once you’ve gone through the process one time, you’ll keep going back to it with ease.
Most of these ingredients for the DIY scrub are easily available at a nursery, a chemist or on Amazon. The Aloe Vera pulp can be extracted from an Aloe Vera leaf by slicing it through the center and scooping the pulp out. I strongly recommend that you also get an Aloe Vera plant at home – it has some amazing benefits and is useful all year round.
Blend all of these ingredients together until they form a paste, put in a jar and start using. Remember since this includes salts it will have a grainy texture, and that is completely OK.

In peak summer it’s best to refrigerate especially so it can retain its solid structure and feel. You now have for yourself any any time use homemade body scrub.
