Make It: Your Own Lavender Body Scrub

A good body scrub is the best thing next to a nice long beach vacation.  In a pinch.  I only discovered body scrubs a few years ago and now I’m obsessed and can’t stop coming up with new recipes!  My most recent favorite is this lavender body scrub, perfect for exfoliating and moisturizing dry skin, while smelling delicious and relaxing.  I can’t wait for you to make some for yourself and 10 of your closest friends (it’s too good not to share!).
