Basic homemade body scrub recipes start with a carrier oil. You can use the oils in the recipes we’ll give you or swap them out with an oil of your choice. Some of the best oils include almond, coconut, apricot and olive. For the scrubbing ingredients, use sugar or salt of you want something that will exfoliate gently and eventually liquefy, which is good because you don’t want large particles of your body scrub clogging up your drain. Finally, pick your favorite flower essences and flower petals, and you’ll have a DIY scrub that will be relatively cheap and arguably better than a store-bought version.
