Mmm  JD  That sounds good.
Do the recipes use very natural type ingredients?

Not sure if this is any good but I'll quote from a book that I've had for years...."The Make Your Own Cosmetics and Fragrance Book for Australians" by Elizabeth Franke

A mild abrasive scrub leaves skin silky and glowing.  In ordinary circumstances on does not want to take off the top layer of dead skin cells by such violent means and anyone with threadveins should not use scrubs at all.  But occasionally, when one is looking particularl dingy or weatherbeaten, they do wonders.
My own favorite is a handful of sugar with a lavish dab of marshmallowroot cold cream.  The one smooths while the other soothes.  Of course any cream would do.  To get the messy mixture off, use water to wash off the sugar, then follow with cotton wool or tissue.
Sugar is an excellent scrub because it abrades without damage.  You can mix it with anything you like, even soap and water.  An American beauty expert passed on the story of a schoolboy who cleared up his spots by scrubbing his face with soap, water and sugar.  One supposes he gave up eating sugar at the same time.
Anyone bothered by an over-oily skin can keep oatmeal or cornmeal in the bathroom and use them as a daily scrub under the shower.  Almond meal is a splendid scrub, but too costly for every day.
Another excellent scrub for oily skin and its attendant troubles is dried orange or lemon peel ground to powder in an electric blender.  The peel is drying and mildly antiseptic.  It works just as well and goes further mixed with powdered oatmeal.

In my words!!! now - I keep a jar of oatmeal in the shower and use it to scrub myself when I'm feeling really gungy...just don't use a loofah or a flannel with it cos you will be trying to get them clean for weeks.
