Make Your Own Cucumber Body Scrub

The first cucumbers in our garden are just about ready to be picked so we started looking for ways to use them and came across this recipe for a cucumber body scrub. The cucumber has the power to cleanse impurities, cool the skin, relax the soul and reduce discomforts of the skin.

Mix together into a thick paste 1 medium cucumber, peeled and finely grated and 1 cup of organic buttermilk. Stir in 1/2 cup of sea salt, which will act as an exfoliant. Relax in a steamy bath for 5 minutes, allowing the heat to open your pores. Apply the cucumber scrub, avoiding cuts, scratches, or freshly shaved skin. Rinse thoroughly.

We're off to try this out!!


  1. WOW! I want to know how that turns out.
    I heard you put on a great show last month so I had to come check out your blog.
    Hope you can make it to the Hot Blogust Night blog party in Snohomish on August 8th.

  2. Oh boy, I see that I am going to have to try this. Another use for all of the cucumbers in our garden.
