I’ve never made homemade scrubs before, but after reading this ebook, I was so inspired to try my hand at it! Stacy makes it seem so easy — and fun!
And with all of the 20+ recipe combinations in this ebook, there’s something for everyone. These scrubs would be perfect to give as gifts — or to make as a special treat after a long day.
