If you love soft, smooth, moisturized skin, you need to give it a bit of attention. You could buy some nice exfoliating products, but you’ll pay way more that you should. These homemade sugar scrub recipes only costs pennies and are as good (if not better) than store bought ones.
To make your own sugar scrub, you need only a few ingredients you probably already have in your pantry: sugar (both white and brown work), oil (I LOVE unrefined coconut oil), and your favorite essential oils. Of course, you can add other ingredients, like colorants, dried herbs and flowers.
Perfect for exfoliating your skin, you can use it on your hands, your legs, face and even lips. Give it a try and enjoy your newfound softer skin.
Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipes That Will Spoil You!
Today I’m here to bring you many easy sugar scrub recipes to inspire you to make your own, not just for yourself, but to give as gifts throughout the year. Making sugar scrubs is fun, easy and perfect for those of us who love natural living and homemade beauty products.
Orange Sugar Scrub With Cinnamon
This orange sugar scrub with cinnamon is easy to make and it’s perfect for Christmas gifts! It smells spicy, and not only does it help exfoliate your skin, but it also provides muscle relaxing (orange oil is a muscle relaxant) and kills bacteria becasue of the added cinnamon.
Here’s what you’ll need:
doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil 15 ml
- 1 cup unrefined coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 20 to 25 drops of orange essential oil
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- five 4 oz glass jars
To make it, melt the coconut oil first: measure the 1 cup into a glass jar, and immerse it into a pan with hot water from the sink. It will melt quickly, as it only needs to go a bit over 76 degrees. In a separate container, mix the sugar and cinnamon and add them to the melted coconut oil. Add the orange oil and mix well. You’re now ready to put your scrub into the 4 oz jars and decorate.
