Bath time loofah
Loofahs can make excellent body scrubs that gently exfoliate. They are totally plastic free and a truly natural way to keep yourself in tip top condition. They can also be sliced and used in soap making. When they have been used for their original purpose, they easily compost in your compost heap given they are just a dried up vegetable.
They are part of the cucumber family that are grown, dried and then their seeds removed. If you look closely you will see that they share a similar pattern to cucumbers when they are cut cross-section!
