Day 6 – Citrus Sugar Scrub – {DIY From Scratch}

I must confess that I’ve made sugar scrubs before.  I really love them and am currently out so I thought I’d make a new one and share that with you.

01862cde3d090b3f3825a90178cffffbc13df163f1The common ingredient is always sugar (I know, that seems obvious).  Then you need an oil of some kind.  I’ve made them with olive oil and almond oil. Today I chose coconut oil.  And finally a fragrance.  It’s really up to you.  I like a refreshing peppermint or sometimes lime.  My all time favorite is orange blossom, but with our garbage disposal smelling so good these days thanks to the orange blossom, I thought I’d try another scent. I chose to combine sweet orange and lemon for an invigorating citrus scent.

Here’s my recipe:

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
30 drops of essential oil

01438c1503d1809197b7cf424fcfbf94ff05dd7706Melt the coconut oil, add the sugar and fragrance and mix together well.  It should look like the consistency of a snow cone. I hope that makes sense.

01b5742109e8deb90b6ecfe32bd5ccfa312d826d89My skin tends to be dry so I like the amount of oil, but if you don’t want it as oily, then just reduce the amount of oil.

Store the scrub in an airtight container and use it to wash your hands or as a whole body scrub.

Happy exfoliating!

Until tomorrow,

Grace

P.S.  I learned about #The100DayProject over at Make Do and Mend-able and decided to create a doodle in a 2″ square everyday for 100 days.  I started yesterday.  You can see my doodles by following me on Instagram.  #100daysofDoodles

Boy that looks really good.  Can you use it on my rough elbows?

  2. This looks so easy. I love a sugar scrub they have at a store called Basin at Downtown Disney but the jar is about $25.00. This looks so easy to make. Thanks for sharing.
