MINT GREEN TEA BODY SCRUB
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 tbsp epsom salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp green tea leaves (preferably mint)
- 6 drops peppermint oil
- 6 drops vitamin E oil
WHAT TO DO
In a clean bowl, combine the sugar, epsom salt, and tea leaves. Add in the honey, olive oil, peppermint oil, and vitamin E oil. Stir the ingredients together until the mixture is evenly combined and store in an airtight container.
When you're ready to use the scrub, spoon a portion of the mixture into a bowl and take it with you into the shower. Be sure to keep the remaining mixture completely dry. Gently rub the scrub in circular motions onto moist skin to exfoliate. Rinse it off with warm water, pat dry, and finish with your favorite moisturizer.
