This is a very useful article of which you can find a lot of natural ingredients from your kitchen. An orange is easily found so no worries. I love the smell of oranges! Don't throw away after u squeeze juices from them. I will put them in a little dish bowl of dishwashing liquid for that extra tangy smell.

Also, try this. Microwave them for 15seconds and you will have your microwave smelling so nice. Do the same with Lemons too. Yummy and Fresh!

Use it to: Slough dry skin off heels, knees, and elbows

Why it works: The fruit acid loosens dead skin cells.
How-to: Cut a fresh orange in half and squeeze the juice of one half into a bowl. Add 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup olive oil and then blend into a moisture-rich scrub. Next, rub the exposed side of the other half of the orange over knees, elbows, heels, and any other dry spots. Last, rub in the sugar mixture to slough off dead skin. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry.

Use it to: Soothe and soften dry, sensitive skin

Why it works: The lactic acid in milk serves as a gentle skin exfoliant, while its natural fat content acts as a body moisturizer.
How-to: Add 1 gallon of whole milk to a tubful of warm water and soak. It’s a great alternative to sugar and salt scrubs, says Perillo, which may be too abrasive for people who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or sensitive skin. If you prefer a fragranced bath, add 10 to 20 drops of an essential oil such as lavender.
