    Make Your Own Natural Body Scrub!

    When it comes to DIY projects, there’s nothing we love more than making our own beauty products. Just think about all the money you spend on these items every year, and how difficult it can be to find brands that you trust and scents that you love. For a little effort (and a lot less money!) you can make your own products, customizing them to fit YOUR needs and likes. It’s a win-win! Though it may take some experimentation, most products aren’t too hard to create.

    Today, we want to share with you two of our favorite DIY recipes for making your own natural body scrubs. While you likely have a body wash you already love, scrubs are a great way to exfoliate your skin while boosting circulation.
