Did you know that our skin is the largest organ in our body? Give it some TLC and exfoliate once a week with this hydrating lightly scented scrub that will leave your skin glowing and radiant.
This scrub is made with one of nature’s gentlest exfoliators: oatmeal. Oatmeal is great at getting rid of dead skin cells and is also very soothing and healing for troubled skin.
Another great exfoliator is sea salt which is rich in minerals and helps to improve blood circulation while the natural yogurt will help to tighten pores, it’s also antibacterial and anti-fungal.
Radiant Skin Body Scrub
1/2 cup Medium ground sea salt
½ cup Uncooked oatmeal
½ cup Natural yogurt
¼ cup Coconut Oil
2 drops Lavender True Essential Oil
3 drops Rose Geranium Essential Oil
3 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
Here’s how to make it
If you have regular oatmeal you’ll need to grind it up, I used a coffee grinder for this – or you an buy ground oatmeal.
Once the oatmeal is ground place it in a bowl with the rest of the dry ingredients and stir to combine, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until you get a coarse paste.
To use rub the paste onto your skin in a circular motion and massage gently for around five minutes. Wash off with warm water and moisturise as usual.
Use this gentle scrub at least once a week for the best results. Will keep in the fridge for about a week.
