Mother's Day - Rosemary & Lemon Salt Scrub

May 09, 2018

Mother's Day is the best day to show our moms how much we love them and what a better way than with a gift that you made yourself! Handmade gifts are so much more meaningful because they come from the heart. Additionally, handmade gifts are generally inexpensive!

Farm & Pretty has an amazing salt scrub with rosemary and lemon that smells fantastic! It even has tons of healing benefits! Epsom salt helps muscle and nerve function as well as reduces inflammation in the body. The lemon is full of vitamin c which helps lighten dar spots on the skin while rosemary helps heal skin conditions as well as arthritis pan. Lastly, olive oil is an anti-inflammatory that helps ski conditions such as dermatitis and eczema. Exfoliating with a body scrub is such a great to keep your skin healthy and glowing!
