I recently discovered how to make sugar scrubs. It has now become one of my favorite things to make; its super easy, quick, and it leaves my skin so soft. All you need is sugar, coconut oil and whatever essential oils you want. I keep it super simple for my face scrub...just sugar and coconut oil.
You can also make a body scrub by using sea salt ( coarse salt or Himalayan pink salt). I bought some jars from amazon to store my scrub and made some labels using my Cricut; turned out pretty cute!
Okay the Ingredients please?
It's a 2:1 ratio of sugar to coconut oil. I like to make small batches of it so I just use
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- add a 5 drops of your favorite essential oil ( you can add more or less drops)
Mix in a small bowl and store it in your jar. Ready to use!
You are going to love how it makes your skin feel. I don't recommend using it everyday; maybe 3 times a week and do not use coarse salt on your face... its really harsh and strips your natural oil.
One more thing... my favorite essential oil that I use for my body scrub is Lemon- I just love how fresh it smells!!!
Let me know what your favorite essential oil.
