Beauty Benefits of this recipe
Body scrubs exfoliate the skin, preventing ingrown hairs, removing dirt and unclogging pores. This allows your skin to absorb moisture more effectively, leaving it softer and smoother.
Rooibos is an anti-oxidant, which is great for soothing skin irritations, calming inflammation, and fighting free-radicals. It’s also good for preventing wrinkles and promoting the production of new skin cells.
Cinnamon can help with hyper-pigmentation and scarring to even out complexion, and honey is well-known for its anti-microbial and soothing properties.

- ½ cup olive/almond/deodorised coconut oil

- 1 thumb-size piece fresh ginger
- 2 tbsp honey
