Sugar scrubs are so cool! They are very gentle, and are quite hydrating to the skin, than compared to, say, salt scrubs. And they make a great exfoliant, which means bye bye old, dull, dead skin cells, and hello healthy, glowing skin! ❤️
Now, obviously you can buy scrubs from the store for a few bucks. They’d either be filled with nasty chemical preservatives, or the “all natural” ones be ridiculously pricey for no reason whatsoever. And there is seriously no point in buying them when you can make your own, customizable to your preference, in under a minute, for a fraction of the cost!
- 1/2 cup Sugar (8 tbsp)
- 1/8 cup Coconut oil (2 tbsp)*
- 7-8 drops Peppermint essential oil**
- Air tight container of choice
*Substitute with any other carrier oil if you’d like, olive, almond, jojoba, anything would do.
**Substitute with any other essential oil for a whole different scrub, or mix and match, and use more than one, like rose, lemon, lavender, etc!
