Natural scrubs are a fab way to get rid of dead skin, as well are safe to use on your children!
Whether it be a dry nose from a cold, chapped lips or dry skin, these natural scrubs do the trick!
1.) In a small bowl combine 2 tsp. of brown or fine sugar.
2.) Next add 1 tbs. oil of your choice.
3.) Then add 1 drop of essential oils to flavor (lemon or peppermint), or none.
4.) Gently mix then add to small travel jars that are airtight.
Lip scrubs can be done over the sink or in the shower. Simply take a small dollop & smooth over lips in a circular motion. Rinse, pat lips dry, then top with lip balm to lock in the moisture!
My children love this, & it is safe to eat if ingested! It makes moisturizing easier minus the fight!
1.) In a mixing bowl add 1 cup of fine sugar.
2.) Next add 1/2 cup of the oil of your choice.
3.) Then add 3 drops of essential oils mix, & store in an airtight jar.
Using a fine sugar is less abrasive then coarse sugar when using on the face.
1.) In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of salt (epsom or sea salt).
2.) Next add 1 cup of the oil of your choice.
3.) Then add 5 drops of essential oils to the mixture, & fold.
4.) Place in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks!
*When using these scrubs take a small amount with a spoon, & rub in a circular motion. Rinse, then after drying your skin, apply either coconut oil, or any lotion to lock in the moisture.
I DO NOT recommend salt scrubs for children due to possible irritation! Therefore you can make a body scrub for them using brown sugar in place of the salt.
