I like a good exfoliating body wash as much as the next guy. You can find a million different body washes and scrubs at the store. Unfortunately, a lot of these options are loaded with chemicals as well as tiny plastic microbeads that perform the task of exfoliation. I’m not super into washing chunks of plastic down the drain every time I hop in the shower. Ever since I found out those lovely bits of scrubbing’ stuff were actually plastic I have been on the look out for a good homemade body scrub alternative.
Since it seems like you can clean pretty much anything with baking soda. I decided I would put it to the test and making my very own homemade body scrub with baking soda and essential oils.
