Summer is here, which means it’s time to shed the winter layers and bring out the shorts and bikinis. If your skin has been hibernating since October, this summer sugar scrub is just the right thing to get your skin soft, smooth, and glowing. The best part? It’s super easy to make – you only need three simple ingredients that you can find in your kitchen or the local health food store. It takes about five minutes to make, and is an awesome alternative to store bought products laden with chemicals and toxins. Love your skin and it will love you back.
What You’ll Need
- Organic Cane Sugar (1 cup)
- Organic Coconut Oil ( ½ cup)
- Essential Oils (20-30 drops)
- Airtight container to store scrub
Mix It Up
Melt coconut oil over low heat until liquefied. Add cane sugar and essential oils and mix well. Transfer to airtight container.
Make It Yours
Choosing the right essential oils is totally up to you. Try citrus combinations for an energizing morning scrub – like eucalyptus, bergamot, and lemon. To wind down, add lavender essential oil and organic vanilla extract. Get creative with your oils and find the scent that suits you best. For best results, choose high grade essentials oils like DoTerra or NOW.
