Salt & Soda Scrub

All-natural Salt & Soda scrub recipe

There’s no reason to buy posh face and body scrubs — oftentimes filled with more than meets the eye — when you can make your own organic, spa-quality scrub right at home. And just as effective at removing dirt, oil, and dull skin.

All you need are three ingredients:

Add equal parts salt and baking soda into a plastic dish. (I say plastic because I take mine right into the shower with me, and accidents can happen.) Then mash an equal part of Dr. Bronner’s liquid castile soap in, forming a paste. If the paste is still on dry side, you can add water.

That’s it.

There are plenty of do-it-yourself recipes for exfoliating scrubs available online. Many of which use sugar. I personally feel that while sugar may sound luxurious to some, our bodies are so inundated with it on a daily basis — from sweets to breads to booze — that using it, even superficially, can affect your body’s pH and make you all the more delicious to sugar-loving flora like yeast.
