The recent shift in mindful consumption has lead to more people making their own products at home. There are many benefits of creating DIY products, in particular reducing waste and the toxic chemicals that can enter your body. If you're interested in getting started with DIY products, the easiest place is in teh bathroom. We've created a recipe for a DIY body scrub that is all natural and chemical free, better for you and the environment. The best thing about making your own body scrub is that you get to choose your preferred consistency and fragrance. We recommend starting with a small quantity and experimenting with the consistency before creating the full amount.



You can also change fragrance depending on the time of the year, choosing more warming and hydrating oils in Winter; and opting for more uplifting and cooling oils in summer. 



Here is our favourite recipe for a beautiful detoxifying and refreshing all natural body scrub.
