Recipe - Homemade Peppermint Castile Exfoliating Scrub
This is seriously one of the easiest recipes I've made. I came up with this idea simply because I wanted to have a good exfoliating scrub to use in the shower but I am using up any products I have at home before I buy new ones. I had a bottle of Peppermint Castile Soap sitting under my counter that didn't have a use right now. I originally bought it to mix with vinegar for our homemade cleaning spray - until I discovered that castile soap and vinegar don't mix.....
We use other soaps for hand soap so I was left with a bottle that rarely got used. I ordered microdermabrasion crystals online a while ago to use with my face and body wash so I thought why not combine that with the castile soap for a homemade scrub!
The ingredients are only three things: An empty soap dispenser, a bottle of natural soap, and microdermabrasion crystals. I picked up my soap dispenser at Walmart for .88 cents. The Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap you can find on Amazon. And the microdermabrasion crystals you can find on Amazon as well.
I simply poured soap into the soap dispenser until it was almost full. Then I added 2 tablespoons of microdermabrasion crystals to it. I shook it up and it made the soap foamy white. And done! The crystals will settle on the bottom of the soap dispenser so I shake mine up before I use it.
Now I have an all natural exfoliating scrub with no yucky chemicals in it! (^.^) I like the peppermint scent in the shower because it's invigorating. I've used the scrub on my face and my body. I plan to make more scrubs myself in the future! I like knowing exactly what's in my products and the words being easily pronounceable.
Have you made a homemade scrub before?
