DIY Loofah Body Scrub Recipe

Most body scrub recipes use salt or sugar to exfoliate your skin, but this uses ground loofah.  Loofah is scratchy when dry, but it turns soft when wet, so it is an excellent way to remove dead skin cells.  Use a coffee grinder or herb mill to grind loofah for this recipe.
