Glycerine and honey scrub


1 cup fine loose salt or loose sugar

3 teaspoons liquid glycerin
1 teaspoon pure honey

3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil

Optional: Pinch of lavender blossoms (available in the bulk department of good health food stores), or chamomile, or dried herbs of your choice, chopped exceedingly fine.


Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container.
Add more liquid ingredients if you prefer a thinner end-product.
Stir thoroughly before use.
This keeps very well, and in fact, the honey acts as preservative.
Use small amounts when scrubbing the nose, being careful not to irritate or get it in the eyes.
Scrub elbows, hands, knees, and feet. Rinse in warm water, pat dry, and apply your favorite lotion afterward.
