This DIY activated charcoal scrub is made to cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify the skin without any nasties.
Bamboo charcoal and bentonite clay - two ingredients known to absorb impurities before washing them from the skin. And with the olive/coconut oil your skin will be left feel so soft and hydrated.
1/2 cup raw sugar
4 tablespoons olive oil or fractionated coconut oil (coconut oil that stays in liquid form and doesn't solidify)
1/2 tablespoon activated charcoal
1/2 tablespoon bentonite clay
3 drops peppermint oil
4 drops lavender oil
4 drops lemon oil
4 drops orange oil
Place all ingredients in a glass bowl and mix with a wooden spoon (when working with bentonite clay it is best to avoid using metallic bowls and utensils). Place in a 240ml glass jar and seal.
Use in the shower 2 times a week, avoiding the face.
This scrub is messy so make sure to rinse away any excess charcoal from your shower after use!
