"I, like my mother, am an ardent lover of all things natural when it comes to skin care. Since adolescence I have been applying raw ingredients like honey and lemon and touch wood I have had decent skin. In the past few years, inspired by bloggers, I have started experimenting with homemade scrubs too. They have given me positive results and today I will be discussing 3 of my favourite scrubs! The best part is that you can customize it to your liking. Most ingredients will be easily available in your kitchen and it takes less than ten minutes to make each scrub. The scrubs also make for interesting gifts and favors. I am gifting a set to my friend for her birthday but you could even give it as bridal shower favors.You could gather your bridesmaids and have fun making them as mehendi favors too. I have packed the scrubs in glass jars with customized labels along with a detailed pamphlet and tea-lights. Download the labels with ingredients mentioned and pamphlet with information for your next batch of homemade scrubs. Let me know how you feel after applying the scrubs. :)"
