Homemade Body Scrubs

Everybody likes to pamper themselves at home. Body scrubs are those nice to have once in a while products but they are not cheap. I've been making a homemade one for a few years from honey and raw sugar and find that it works great. Many "beauty" products contain various chemical ingredients that could be harmful and you can research them on EWG cosmetics database. I realize it is probably a lot harder to sell a body scrub made from food products and they need to preserve and stabilize it for resale but I would rather not use it. Alternatively you can use olive oil with salt or sugar as noted on the kitchn. I don't have a recipe for mine and just mix it up as I need it.
