here at Nautical Farms we are big do-it-yourself-ers (is that a word? it is now!). as much as we love to farm, we love to make. since being in quarantine due to COVID19, we’ve been stepping up our #selfcaresunday routine. one of our favorite things to make more recently is this super easy seaweed face scrub that leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated- both things you never take for granted during a cold, dry winter in Maine.

it takes just a few minutes whip up and lasts several weeks to months depending on how much you use it.

you’ll need:

  • two tablespoons of baking soda

  • two teaspoons of raw unfiltered honey

  • one tablespoon of aloe vera gel

  • half a teaspoon of vitamin E oil

  • two teaspoons of sea salt or himalayan salt

  • four tablespoons of sugar

  • two tablespoons of Nautical Farms Dried Sugar Kelp Flakes

  • five drops of lavender oil

  • five drops of tea tree oil

  • a small mason jar with air tight lid

mix all of the ingredients together and put into your jar. make sure the jar remains closed when you are not using.

we recommend using one a week as you would a normal exfoliator. let the relaxing begin!
