Self-Care at Home -- Simple Sugar Scrub Recipe


21 Jul
21Jul


I love making my own at-home self-care products. The most common products that I make on a regular basis include body balms, tooth powder, deodorant, and body scrubs! Sometimes I make very simple three-ingredient scrubs and sometimes I go all-out and make a scrub with seven or eight ingredients. No matter how many ingredients you put into your scrub, your body will always thank you.


Simple Sugar Scrub

1 cup sugar*

1/2 cup oil (coconut oil or almond oil)

essential oils


For the sugar, you can use 1 type of sugar (turbinado) or a blend (1/2 turbinado and 1/2 brown sugar).

For the oil, you can use whatever oil you have on-hand, but I tend to use coconut oil or almond oil. If you live in a colder climate, your coconut oil will harden. Place your glass jar in a shallow bowl of hot water to gently warm up the coconut oil before using.

For the essential oils, you can use any scents that you like. I tend to use lavender, grapefruit, or vanilla, depending on the season and the purpose of the scrub.


To use your scrub -- place a towel on the floor, spoon a small amount into the palm of your hand, and begin to scrub your feet and legs. I scrub from the bottom and then move up to the torso, arms, hands, and neck. Let the oils blend into the body and skin for a little while before you shower off. After you shower, gently towel off and enjoy your smooth, soft, glowing skin! 


Have fun making your body scrubs and unleash your inner creativity!
