1. Expiry Date
Homemade body scrubs should be consumed within six months. Although the carrier oil that you use usually has a shelf life of one year, its contact with the rest of the ingredients causes it to lose some of its properties. Rather than the body scrub getting rancid, it is best to use it up before its expiry date. Therefore, if you are giving your homemade body scrubs as gifts, do let your friends know that it has a short shelf life.
