Aloe and Sugar Body Scrub


With a few kitchen cupboard ingredients, you can make skin treatments that truly deliver. Using a body scrub regularly can seriously improve your skin, especially when you add fresh aloe and cannabis infused coconut oil! I have an abundance of aloe growing in my yard, but if you don't, many grocery stores sell fresh aloe in the produce section. It's easy to extract the miraculous gel of the aloe from it's leaves:

Place the leaf on a cutting board, remove the thorny edges, then halve the leaf lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop the the gel from inside. If you don't use all the gel, it can be refrigerated in an airtight glass jar for up to a year! Coarse sugar, a good oil like coconut, hemp or olive, and some aloe are all you need to have healthy glowing skin!
