  1. If there wasn’t a nagging reminder in my head that it contains Epsom salts, I would have eaten it before using it to treat my skin! Superb DIY! 🙂

  2. I also prefer using homemade products over store bought ones anytime. Will try this one, am pretty sure I’ll get tempted to eat it. 😀

  3. So true Raka, the Epsom salt…grrr!! wont let me eat it.
    But, still I am so going to make it. Very simple and easy DIY and seems effective too.
