Loofah Soap with Jojoba Beads & Essential Oils
Loofah soap is fantastic for exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturizing your skin all at the same time. Did you know you can grow loofah in your garden? Really! It’s a fibrous interior of a fruit that is dried and used as a sponge. I recently learned that and it blew my mind. It is on my list to plant next year because I want to make sure I have a steady supply of loofah soap. For now, you can order them on Amazon.
When combined with goats milk soap and essential oils, loofah soap provides deep moisturizing qualities that give your skin a healthy glow. The jojoba beads add an exfoliating property that leave your skin silky smooth. Once you have all the supplies together, loofah soap is quick and easy to make.
