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
Melt 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.
My 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.
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?
I love sugar scrubs!! So easy to make and they work so well… I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!
You’re very welcome. I hope you enjoy it.
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.
Thank you. It’s very easy to make and super economical. Plus you know exactly what the ingredients are. I love that part.
Did you see the DIY Tuna Lamp?
Yes. Should I make some of those for the backyard?
