The combination of ingredients in this body scrub makes it a really wonderful option when looking to exfoliate and disinfect the skin at the same time. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of the ginger together with the same properties that are found in the lemongrass essential oil make this body scrub very useful when diluted in warm water as means of cleansing wounds. Once again it is important to note that as with all the organic sea salt based body scrubs found in this book, this body scrub should not be used on sensitive skin nor should it be used as a facial exfoliator.
- 1 Cup (250ml) Organic Sea Salt
- ½ Cup (125ml) Fresh Ginger root, finely grated
- 1 Tablespoon (15ml) Lemongrass essential oil
1 Place the organic sea salt and finely grated ginger into a mixing bowl
2 Mix in the lemongrass essential oil, making sure that all the salt crystals are well covered with the olive oil and finely grated ginger root
3 To use this body scrub on your body take a handful of body scrub and rub over damp skin while in the shower. Make sure that you rinse all the body scrub off of your skin thoroughly before continuing with your usual body cleansing routine.
4 This body scrub can be stored in a recycled glass jar and used as when desired. It is recommended that this particular body scrub combination be stored in the refrigerator when not in use in order to prevent the fresh ginger root from turning bad.
