Posted by kacem Post a Comment

Fresh garden herbs are a real treat for your skin. They are chock full of vitamins and nutrients that carry a multitude of skincare and aromatherapy benefits. For this recipe you can use any culinary herbs or flowers you have on hand, such as rosemary, parsley, basil, sage, rose petals, lavender flowers, and others. Pick them fresh from your garden or use what you have in the fridge! In addition, sea salts gently slough off dull, dry, dead skin while re-mineralizing your system, plus they help preserve the fresh herbs for a longer shelf life for this scrub.

HELPFUL HINTS

This scrub has a vibrant herbal scent due to the high levels of vital plant essences that the fresh herbs contain. Choose your fresh herbs and begin by washing and thoroughly air-drying them. Then pick the leaves, discarding the woody stems, and finely chop them for a soft aromatic exfoliation.
