This is one of my best scrubs so far, I tried this once before and I was recently reminded of it.
I almost feel like a housewife, experimenting with different home-made products but store bought products are usually harsh and contain too many preservatives, so if you love yourself do yourself a favor and make your own.
6 chai tea bags
1cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
Get started. Open the chai tea bags and mix the contents with the sugars and cinnamon. Pour it into the desired container and add the oil, honey and finally the vanilla. You can add more oil to achieve desired consistency.
The shelf life is very long for this scrub (over 6 months) Just remember as I’ve mentioned before make sure the scrub container is tightly sealed and never scoop the scrub out with your wet fingers. Although in scrubs like this, where the sugar concentration is high, the sugar will suck water out of the cells of bacteria and kill them.
Now I’m not a big fan of cinnamon in fact the smell of it nauseate me BUT cinnamon is so good for your skin. Did you know that if you cut your skin you can use cinnamon as antiseptic? It’s known to kill bacteria and help prevent infections. So just clean the area and sprinkle some on the cut.
In fact cinnamon can be used as a natural fix for wrinkles. It causes the skin to plump therefore making fine lines less visible. So few drops of cinnamon oil and olive oil applied to your lips might work enough to forget injected fillers. Try it instead of lip gloss even.
Let me know if it works for you, send me pics or hashtag me #nonasden would love to see your scrub making skills
