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:
You will need:
1 1/4 Cup White Sugar
1 Handful Basil
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil (liquid)
1 TBSP Hibiscus Tea
1 TSP Aloe Vera
6 Drops Essential Oil
Grind basil until wet
In a large bowl combine sugar, coconut oil and aloe vera
Add basil to sugar mixture and stir until well distributed
Add tea to sugar mixture and stir in
Add olive oil and stir in
Add essential oil and stir in (I used Bittersweet but anything works)
Transfer to a container with a lid
