I don’t know about anyone else… but during the colder months, I battle dry skin terribly. In a week or so we will head on a mini-vacation to a big indoor water park. I dread having to put on a bathing suit any time but I especially hate wearing them in the winter. My skin always looks patchy and dry… So with this pending trip, I knew I needed a sugar scrub to get my legs properly exfoliated. So I made up a homemade sugar scrub! This sugar scrub can be used on the face or body. I made two variations. One using regular “softer” grain sugar… and another using brown sugar, that has a rougher feel. They have 3 ingredients and are so easy to make. These also make great Christmas gifts.
- 4 TBS Sugar (regular sugar for face, brown for body)
- 1 TBS Sweet Almond Oil
- 3 drops Lavender (for face) or Blend of Vanilla (for body) Essential Oils
- Place all the contents into a glass mason jar (or container of choice).
- Shake well. (or blend together with a spoon)
- Then apply to body while in shower or bath. Thats it! :)
- Keeps for about 3 months
3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup oil. 4-6 drops Essential Oil. It is basically 1 part oil, 3 part sugar. You can make it as “thick/dry” or “liquidy” as you want it. I like mine to be a little more on the liquid side… SO if it seems to dry, I just squirt in a little more Almond Oil.
The DARKER batch I made is for the body. Using brown sugar. The lighter batch I used a softer white sugar.
The best way to mix it for me, was to shake it with a lid on it….
If you use this on your face, DO NOT RUB hard… the face should be treated very tenderly… and never rubbed hard.
As a side note. RMO is having a sale right now on their new Immune Kit. They have a few more promotions going on too. Worth checking out for sure.
