DIY body scrub – ingredients
- contents of 3 chai tea bags
- ½ cup raw sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3-5 tablespoons almond oil or melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey

How to use
Use on the entire body by rubbing the sugar scrub gently in circular motions up towards the heart. Rinse and pat skin dry with a towel – best to use a dark-colored towel. We don’t recommend using this scrub on your face, as it might be too rough for the delicate facial skin. Use once a week or fortnightly.
