Mulberry Body Scrub for Summer

Mulberry Body Scrub for SummerHere we go ‘round the mulberry bush! Remember that song? Or was it a nursery rhyme? Shoot, I haven’t sang that in so long I forget. Well, no matter. We aren’t talking about songs anyway!

It’s mulberry season for those of us on the west coast! Mulberries are everywhere and in all shades of purple. My favorite mulberries happen to be white!

Not only are these tree berries scrumptious but they make an amazing body scrub. This is due to their natural makeup. They tend to have ‘crunchier’ seeds that make up each mulberry thus providing incredible exfoliation.

Want to know another perk to adding mulberries into a body scrub. Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have used mulberry as a remedy for swelling and redness. This honestly makes it the perfect berry to use on your skin!

Ready for my secret recipe? Its super easy!
