Announcing 4 luxurious natural ingredient categories for your Custom Herbal Remedy Sugar Scrub

Exfoliating your face one to two times a week is an easy way to achieve soft, glowing skin. With these ingredients, you can create a facial scrub tailor-made for your skin type in no time at all. There are four optimal ingredients that combine for the perfect body scrub for your skin and aroma preferences . These are exfoliants, binders, and the herbal or botanical ingredients. 

Do you want to make a special Sugar Scrub for your love?
Would you like to pamper your man but don't want him to smell like a girl when all is said and done?
You know your love's favorite scents or flowers but can't find anything in a store that is what you have in mind? 
Perhaps you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, sensitive skin, wrinkle lines, spots and you've tried the prescriptions (yup...chemicals) and over the counter moisturizers? 

You have not only the choice of scent, but also what type of carrier or
sugar grain you would like your sugar scrub to include.
Did you know?
Your skin is the largest organ on your body.
What you put on your skin gets into your bloodstream in seconds, even faster than food reaches your stomach.
For this and many reasons, I firmly believe in ONLY putting natural, organic products on your skin.
This is our way of life at our homestead in Northern Rural TN.
Natural beauty products leave out the chemicals and give you many added benefits you can't find in OTC skincare!
When you use exfoliating body scrub, you're not just giving your skin a pleasant-smelling, silky smooth makeover —
you're also lathering on vitamins and minerals that benefit your body in major ways.

Use Instructions:
Clean your face using a warm, damp washcloth before using the sugar scrub. While the skin is still wet, massage approximately 2 teaspoons worth of scrub into your hands and massage into your skin using a circular motion. You may add more sugar scrub as you move onto other areas of your body, but make sure to concentrate on rough patches like elbows, knees and feet. Do not apply to areas of broken or infected skin. When done, rinse off using warm water.
Care Instructions:
You may store this rose sugar scrub in its original sealed container in your refrigerator for up to six months. Avoid introducing water into the jar, as this will shorten the life of your scrub. For best results, keep the jar in a cool dry place and scoop only the scrub you are about to use in the shower or sink.
Caution:
Please do not use (or choose an ingredient of) this product if you are or may be allergic or sensitive to any of the above listed ingredients. Do not expose skin to sun while sugar scrub is on your skin. Always test a small area first. As with all oil-based bath products, please use caution in the shower as it can cause surfaces to become a bit slippery. Make sure you have a bath mat with good traction.
