My son just bought peppermint oil recently. Im going to steal a few drops to make this sugar scrub!
Eucalyptus is my daughter’s favorite scent. I always think of her when I see it or hear about it.
My allergies have been awful lately. I am going to have to try this. What does the green Mica do? Is it just for color or does it really add to this somehow?
I bet this scrub smells amazing! I love DIY beauty products because you know exactly what is in them!
