Basil Hibiscus Sugar Scrub

We have an abundance of basil growing in the garden and it seems that we won’t be eating it all, so I decided to come up with a new recipe for my sugar scrubs: Basil Hibiscus.

To use simply apply in the shower on your arms and legs, then wash off. It will make your skin extremely soft.

Directions on how to make it are below:
