 Salt & Sugar Body Scrub with Lavender

 Making your own bath, beauty, and household products is an excellent solution for those of us with chemical sensitivities, allergies, or  intolerances.  When you make things yourself, you know and trust all the ingredients, and won't react to hidden chemicals, preservatives, fragrances, or additives. It is also a more environmentally-friendly and non-toxic option, and is usually gentler on the pocketbook too.  And let's not forget the best part - it's FUN!

My body, beauty, and household products use natural, non-toxic ingredients and are easy to make at home with common ingredients and simple equipment.  I will be adding more posts like this to my blog as time goes on, so check back often for updates. Enjoy!
