DIY Spa Treatment: Ginger-Mint Body Scrub

Store-bought brown sugar scrubs are divine, but when their prices swing upward toward the $50 mark, that's a lit-tle high for most people. Fortunately, whipping up your own scrub couldn't be easier — and the results are just as good.

You will need:

  • Honey
  • Freshly grated ginger root
  • Chopped fresh mint leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Brown sugar, light or dark

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl — it's up to you to decide how much ginger and mint you'd like, but a ratio of 1/3 olive oil to 2/3 brown sugar will provide a good base for the scrub. About a tablespoon of honey will provide an antiseptic quality to the scrub.

The best way to use this scrub is on dry skin; it's particularly good on hands and feet. After buffing your skin, rinse with warm water. You'll have incredibly softer skin for a small fraction of a name-brand scrub!
