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!!
