Simple Body Scrub Recipes
I think that body scrubs make one of the most perfect homemade gifts. Why?
- They are very thoughtful, just like any homemade gift!
- They are customizable to your gift recipient.
- They are something that your gift recipient probably won’t take the time to buy or make for herself.
- They can be given alone or as part of a gift basket (like the Time To Yourself Gift Basket!)
- The ingredients are usually something that we all have on hand already.
- They are super simple to make so you can even make them at the last minute if you have to!
