Always on the search for more economical and healthy products often leads me to making my own, from scratch…. For many years I have been researching healthier ways to do do things, making my own cleaning products, healthier food, Non-GMO/organic gardening, and products for skin care. All because I believe that our bodies are the Temple of God and I am called to be a “good steward” of every area of life.
“Do you not know that your bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I came across this Chia Seed Face/Body Scrub recipe, have found it very effective, easy to make and economical:
Chia seeds work well as an exfoliant and buffing agent to add to your beauty care routine. Spa Index has a simple recipe for a homemade exfoliating scrub using just three ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Mix the ingredients together and store in a clean jar.
To use, dampen face/body and apply scrub in a circular motion to damp face.
Allow the mixture to set for two minutes before using a wet washcloth to remove.
Splash cold water on your face/body when you’ve finished.
Store in fridge for 3-5 days. This freezes well too, to last longer.
Give it a try, enjoy soft, glowing skin and save money on the monthly budget!
