diy brown sugar exfoliating scrubI’m all about using all-natural products in our home, whether it’s cleaning products, the food we eat, and the products we use on our bodies.

I like making my own DIY products because I know what’s in them. I feel better knowing I’m not using harsh and/or toxic chemicals.

Beauty products are so easy to do yourself. Honestly, so easy! Check out this easy DIY Brown Sugar Scrub…
