Baking soda is the ultimate cheap, safe ingredient for beauty care. I recently listed 4 ways to use baking soda  over at Adrienne's Whole New Mom. One of my favorites is microderm abrasion.Stephanie Tourles, author of Organic Body Care, says this recipe rivals expansive spa treatments.

Stephanie’s Secret Microdermabrasion Recipe:
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoons water
2 drops helichrysum essential oil
1. Combine in a bowl until you have a velvety slurry.
2. Dip the pads of your fingers into the slurry and lightly massage your face and throat. Do not use much pressure. The granules of the baking soda will do the exfoliating work.
3.  Continue to dip fingers into the slurry until the entire skin is covered with a thin coat.
4.  Rinse and pat dry.
