Homemade Sugar Scrub
Makes About 1 1/2 cups
1 cup sugar (white, brown or raw)
1 cup oil of choice
2-4 drops of quality essential oils
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. 2. Stir to combine. 3. Store in a glass container (essential oils will damage the plastic and metals change the properties of the oils).
1. Take a small amount of the scrub with a small spoon. 2. Rub all over your hands and fingertips (or feet, or wherever you’d like extra softness) for about 1 minute. 3. Let sit on your hands for 5 minutes (enjoy this time to rest !) 4. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
1. You can, of course, use other granulated sweeteners. 2. Any oil will work, but olive has a stronger smell. I think choosing a good quality oil is important since some of it will remain on your skin. 3. For essentials oils, there are so many wonderful scents and healing properties to choose from! How about lavender, citrus (grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange), lemongrass, peppermint, ginger….. choose a high quality oil, though it will cost more, since you are leaving this on your skin as well.
