Homemade Margarita Lime Essential Oil Body Scrub
This post includes affiliate links or images. When my son was less than a year old, he started to have a lot of health issues. A long and winding road took us to his diagnosis of autism.
One thing we did early on was remove as many chemicals from the house as possible. This meant making a lot of my own cleaning products. Along the way, I began to learn to make my own beauty products as well.
Homemade Beauty Products
There is no doubt you save a ton of money when you make your own beauty products. You also get to enjoy experimenting with different ingredients. I love to make body scrubs using essential oils.
Not only does your skin feel great, but it smells wonderful. Also, lots of essential oils have fantastic properties that benefit you! Caitlin and I had so much fun making this Homemade Margarita Lime Essential Oil Body Scrub!
Exfoliate That Skin Ladies!
I thought with spring around the corner, it was a great time to make a salt scrub. I love how it exfoliates my skin so well. When you use this Homemade Margarita Lime Essential Oil Body Scrub in the tub or shower, the warm water brings the essential oils to life.
The whole bathroom smells of lime! It is absolutely delicious. Be sure to make several batches so you have some to keep and some to give away! Enjoy one of my Sweet and Spicy Top Shelf Margaritas while you make this!

Starla saysMarch 1, 2018 at 11:40 pm
Oh my goodness, those are too cute! I must try! To be honest, I have tried at home DIY cleaners, but not with any essential oils. I would love to try out some- that would be super helpful!

Minnie saysMarch 27, 2018 at 2:14 am
