Scrub a Dub Dub

As regular readers will know, we love making our own DIY beauty recipes. One of the best things about natural beauty products is that they retain those yummy natural fragrances that can be so soothing and revitalizing. Here is a new body scrub recipe that you can try out for some natural exfoliation! This recipe combines ginger and honey for an uplifting mixture that can moisturize while improving skin health. Keep it in the refrigerator, and use it up within a week.


  • 2-inch Piece of Fresh Ginger
  • 1 cup Coarse Grain Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Fine Grain Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Organic Honey
  • 1/2 cup Organic Avocado Oil
  • A few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

Making the Scrub

The main ingredient in this mixture is fresh, grated ginger. There are so many health and skin benefits to using ginger, but one that we particularly love is that it is good for circulation. This body scrub recipe also features honey and avocado oil for luscious moisture, which is something we desperately need in the wintertime. If possible, we recommend using a local organic honey – then you will get the added benefit of easing your pollen allergies! Find the full recipe in the printable template below and scroll through the photos for inspiration.

Printable Labels

After mixing our scrub, we poured it into small glass Ball jars. Of course, this scrub would make for an excellent gift item! We designed some matching labels that you can use to store or gift your scrub. Below you will find full sheets of kraft designs plus editable belly band labels. The labels are editable – you can customize the text with the free font Museo. Once you edit the label strips, there are a few different things you can do with the printable kraft designs. First, you can print onto full sheet label paper and trim a circular sticker that you can stick on the top of your jar (we used these wide mouth mason jars!) Or, you print onto regular copy paper and use it as a wrapping paper. As you can see from our photos, we used them as cute wraps for soaps! Feel free to get creative here.
