DIY Herbal Shower Scrubs

Body scrubs not only leave your body feeling and smelling clean, but they also exfoliate your skin. Oily skin acts like a glue and holds on to dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. Using a body scrub to exfoliate removes the dirt and dry skin, leaving room for new healthy skin to grow.
