My skin is feeling particularly dry these days with the excess exposure to heat (thanks to hot showers and heated indoor rooms)! And although, I am not a D.I.Y kind of person, I got excited by all the sugar scrub recipes on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot.
The results were amazing! In just a few minutes, I was able to whip up an amazing scrub. Now I feel like Martha Stewart plus I have nice glowing skin! Depending on your mood, just pick the appropriate essential oil for smell. Some of my favorites are Mandarin Orange for energy, Rosemary/Mint for energy, Lavender for relaxation, and vanilla bean for relaxation too.
1 1/2 cups Sugar 1/2 cup Kosher or Epsom Salt 1 cup Carrier Oil, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil 5-10 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil Drops
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Add the scrub to a jar and tighten the lid to seal
1 1/2 cups Sugar 1/2 cup Kosher or Epsom Salt 1 cup Carrier Oil, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil 5-10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil 5-10 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and fractionated coconut oil. Stir until well mixed. Add 2 drops each of rosemary and peppermint pure essential oil. Stir until the scent is evenly distributed throughout the sugar and salt mixture. Add the scrub to a jar and tighten the lid to seal.
