Introduction: DIY Winter Mint Body Scrub

Hi everyone, if you try any of my body scrub recipes, TRY THIS ONE! It is my favorite by far! This body scrub is extra moisturizing and perfect for dry winter skin! If you don't know what a body scrub is, it can be used to scrub away any dead skin on your arms, legs, and all over your body. This extra moisture packed recipe is great to use before you shave too because of all the oil! Enjoy!

  • Jar
  • Mixing bowl and measuring cups

  6. mix well!
