Benefits of Natural Body Scrub for Skin
What are the benefits that we can feel from regular use of Natural Body Scrub? There are so many, one of which is gently removing dead skin cells, say bye to dull skin! With natural ingredients such as sugar, salt, or coffee, this scrub has exfoliating properties that can deeply clean pores, remove dirt and excess oil, and stimulate new skin cell regeneration. In addition, the use of natural ingredients in the scrub such as coconut oil or olive oil moisturizes the skin naturally, preserves moisture, and prevents dry skin.
Another benefit of using Natural Body Scrub is that it improves blood circulation on the surface of the skin. The gentle scrubbing process stimulates blood circulation, helping to nourish the skin by providing better nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells. This can obviously reduce the chances of cellulite appearing and give the skin an overall more supple and healthy appearance.
With essential oils, scrubs also provide a refreshing therapeutic aroma, providing a relaxing sensation and improving mood when used in a body care routine. We’ll be more relaxed every time we want to do self-care with homemade scrubs!

FAQ: Serenitree Natural Body Scrub
How long can we store the scrubs?
- Scrubs can be kept for 2-3 months if stored properly in a dry place and not exposed to direct sunlight.
Can we use this scrub every day?

- Natural scrubs are usually suitable for almost all skin types, however, for sensitive skin, it’s best to do a trial run first. Pay attention to the ingredients you use or even safer, consult a dermatologist!
Can we use other ingredients for this scrub?
- Yes, of course you can experiment with other natural ingredients according to your skin’s needs. However, do your research first. Check out other recipes online or join a professional workshop!
Is it necessary to do a patch test before using the scrub?
- For every use of body care whether natural or not, we should do a patch test on a small area of skin first to ensure there is no allergic reaction or irritation. Better safe than sorry!
