DIY Sugar Scrubs
Sugar scrubs exfoliate your skin, make it super soft and feel amazing, as if you’ve been to the spa. Just a little rubbed on your legs, arms, feet, or all over will gently remove the dead skin cells and leave your skin baby soft. The best thing is that you won't have spent any money or even leave the house! This is literally one of the easiest ways to treat yourself.
Sugar scrub is basically a mixture of sugar & oil and if you prefer, some essential oils. If you buy this is in a store, it’s usually filled with different preserving chemicals. Who wants chemicals on their bodies? Not me!
So try some of these recipes, even if you just make a small bit to try on your legs in the shower. Trust me, you will be amazed at how soft your skin is afterwards.
You can watch our video, or just follow the recipes below. Once you do it a few times, there's no stopping you!
Brown Sugar Scrub
We used geranium and rosemary in this scrub and it smells amazing. Geranium is an anti aging oil for skin, tightening and aiding in cell regeneration. Rosemary is a circulatory and pain relieving oil.
A cup of sugar and half a cup of oil makes it light and fluffy. It’s going to be more exfoliating than if it’s soupy and oilier.
Organic Coconut Sugar Scrub
1 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
4 drops Patchouli
5 drops Ylang Ylang
We used organic coconut sugar which is a brown sugar and we used a coconut oil in it which made the consistency quite hard, but when you scrub it on your skin, it’s going to melt and smooth right out. Brown sugars have more of a molasses scent with vanilla tones which can really add a great base note to your sugar scrub. It also smells really good. We added Patchouli and Ylang Ylang to this scrub because they smell amazing, and the heavier essential oils blend well with brown sugar.
Here a selection of Essential Oils that you can use to make scrubs:
- Bergamot (FCF)
- Lemon (in small amounts)
- Orange (in small amounts)
