Homemade lemon body scrub made with coconut oil, real lemon zest, sugar, and a few more ingredients!
I love body scrubs, bath bombs, and all other stuff. However, because of my dry skin I can’t use a lot of the goodies sold in stores, because of all the chemicals in the products.
Usually the store bought stuff leaves my skin extremely tight, dry, and dare I say it…. ASHY!
For the past few years I’ve actually been making most of my personal care products such as bath salts, scrubs, body creams, bath bombs, and hair moisturizers.
By making my own beauty products, I am able to control how much of what is in each item.
