Lord knows I love making something myself, if I can! In my opinion, homemade is always better! You know exactly what you’re putting on and in your body when you create something yourself.
I also love saving a buck! Some sugar scrubs, ESPECIALLY organic scrubs, can cost a small fortune. I feel like when the “all natural” or “organic” labels are put on a product, the distributor can jack the price up as much as they want and people will buy it because if we’re going to get something, we may as well get the best product we can, right? UNLESS we can make it ourselves!!
This simple scrub was made with all products I had in my cabinets and closets.
Here’s what I did:
Equal parts sugar and coconut oil and 1/2 part apricot oil. I added a few drops of organic lavender essential oil and a few buds of fresh lavender.
I brought the jar into the shower with me and scooped out a spoon-full for each large body part, exfoliated my body and let the excess wash off. The oil blend left behind was SO fresh and luxurious and my skin felt so smooth and soft after the shower!
Homemade sugar scrubs are the healthiest way to remove dead skin cells, dirt, other products, pollutants, and clogged pores all over your body!! Enjoy this “recipe” and feel soft, smooth skin with therapeutic aromas:)
