DIY Sugar Scrub Recipe
A couple weeks back when I shared my coconut oil salt scrub recipe, I actually made this minty lemon sugar scrub at the same time. Of the two, this one definitely turned out to be my favorite! It smells amazing and my skin feels smooth and clean after I use it.
I spread mine into two little jam jars. One for me and one I gave to my mom for a mother's day gift. DIY skin products are the perfect gift. And you can get adorable with it and wrap your little jar with ribbon or a pretty scrap of fabric. I wasn't THAT motivated, but around Christmas time I tend to get that way.
1 cup organic sugar
1/4 cup oil (I used grapeseed, but avocodo or coconut would probably be fine!)
2 tablespoons raw honey
10 drops of tea tree essential oil
10 drops of lemon essential oil
10 drops of peppermint essential oil
And again, just mix to combine! Instant goodness!
You can use this sugar scrub however you like. I use it as a face scrub, but it would be good on any skin. These oils combine to be a very effective astringent and honey is a natural antiseptic while the oil moisturizes and the sugar exfoliates! Perfection in a jar really. Really good smelling perfection.
Let me know if you try it!
