Summertime Strawberry Body Scrub

Things You'll Need

  • 5 large strawberries (fresh, not frozen)
  • 1/2 tbsp. fresh ginger (finely grated)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (you may also use canola, grapeseed or sweet almond oil as well)

Instructions

    • 1
      Puree the strawberries to a thin liquid in a blender or food processor.
    • 2
      Combine fresh strawberry puree, ginger and canola oil in a bowl. Using a fork, mix thoroughly.
    • 3
      Add the salt and baking soda once the first three ingredients have been thoroughly combined Make sure that the liquid is completely combined with the solid. The salts need to be thoroughly saturated. Set aside and let sit for an hour.
    • 4
      Check your salt scrub mixture after an hour. There should be about 1/2 inch of oil on the surface, separated from the mixture. If you need to add more oil, do so now. Mix again and set aside.
    • 5
      Add the fragrance if the ingredients are fully combined. Mix gently with a fork.
    • 6
      Spoon the mixture into airtight containers and store in the refrigerator when you're not using it.
    • 7
      Apply the mixture to wet skin and exfoliate in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don’t be alarmed when the strawberries begin to turn a muted purple or grey purple color. This is normal.
  • Unlike most at-home salt scrubs, this will only keep for a few weeks because of the strawberries. When you’re not using it, keep it in the refrigerator.
  • If you have sensitive skin, be careful when using fragrances. The fragrance in this recipe is optional. It smells very good all on its own.
