Do you ever feel cleaner than after a good exfoliation with some body scrub? But good body scrub can be pricey, and often full of icky chemicals that do more harm than good! Most people don’t have the time or the knowhow to make everything themselves, but for something as quick and easy as a homemade body scrub, it’s worth a try, right?

Making your own homemade body scrub is pretty simple stuff and can be made using sugar or salt and with scrummy essential oils to get you smelling all gorgeous. Here are some lovely, natural recipes for homemade body scrub that your skin will love. Bring on soft, silky smooth skin!

How to get the right fit

To measure your clothing size follow these instructions (use the image below to help):


Measure from the bottom of your ankle to your waist area


Measure from your crotch to the bottom of your leg. Be aware that the inseam measurements are based on a regular inseam.

3. HIP

Stand with feet together and measure around the fullest point of the hip, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.


Measure around the narrowest part of the waist, keeping the tape horizontally.

Choose the right size

That's easier said than done. Because, what do you do if you are in between two sizes?

If in doubt, we recommend going a size  up in leggings - if you are between sizes, this is the best way to ensure a great fit!

Leggings fit:If the measurement for your hip and waist are different, select your leggings size using your hip measurement.
