Rosmarinus officinalis, or Rosemary is a wonderful herb to have in your garden, your kitchen and even your bathroom!
Rosemary has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that leave the skin smelling clean with its earthy aroma. This particular scrub is made with rosemary and pecans, which have more than 19 vitamins and minerals to their name!
You’re going to want to keep this scrub near the sink with a small (think demitasse) spoon nearby. Use this scrub after gardening or whenever your hands feel dry and need an extra kick of moisture. This is also good to have in the shower for elbows, feet and knees. Just be careful if you use a glass container….maybe you should find a cute plastic one for the shower.
