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