776. Rose Body Scrub (Non Edible)
The freshness of this (non-edible) rose body scrub is indescribably delightful and is fantastic to make for a spa day in with sisters. Baby skin is something countless cosmetic industries have spent enormous sums of money on products promising the same velvety smoothness.
Besides the chemical and preservatives in shop-bought body and facial scrubs, you will find yourself grossly over paying for a mediocre product that cannot compete with the freshness of this clean, fresh, home-made rose scrub. This is a non-edible scrub for external use only. Instead of the coconut oil, you can also use baby oil or almond or olive oil which are all great for the skin.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup baby oil
1 large rose, petals only
Put all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the consistency of damp sand.
Store in a jar covered and use within a couple of weeks.
Note the the vividness of the rose petal color will eventually dull, but the scrub itself is still perfectly usable.
