Adding essential oils to our day-to-day life has been so fun; it’s also allowing us to get a little creative! The other day, David mentioned he needed a sugar scrub because his arms were feeling really dry. As he headed to Amazon, I stopped him! “We can make that, it’s really easy!” Challenge accepted.
I let David pick his oil and color (I used my soap colorant over food coloring, for staining purposes). He chose eucalyptus and green (I’m going to make it for myself to use as a lip scrub and I’ll probably use grapefruit oil!). This was SO easy, and I made it in about 5 minutes.
What you need:
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
- essential oil of choice
- optional: soap colorant
What you do:
- Mix 1 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of coconut oil in a small bowl.
- Add in 6-8 drops of essential oil and soap colorant, then mix well.
- Scoop into an airtight container (I used a small mason jar).
Use a tablespoon-sized scoop in the shower as needed. Scrub your skin, and rinse with water. Your skin will seriously thank you! Your scrub will last on your counter for 2 months.
Have you made a sugar scrub before? I would love to hear some of your favorite scents to use!
