2. How to Make A Homemade Sugar Scrub

Those expensive sugar scrubs you see in department stores and spas… they cost pennies to make! Sugar scrubs are a simple beauty recipe with countless variations, and they can be incredibly moisturizing and exfoliating to the skin.

If you are new to making your own beauty products (or even if you are a veteran natural beauty alchemist) I highly encourage you to try out these sugar scrub recipes.

They can be used on face, body, and (especially) feet, for silky skin. You can add endless ingredients for your desired outcome, and they take under ten minutes to make.

Convinced yet?

 

Sugar Scrub Ingredients 

1/2 cup sugar (white or brown sugar- preferably organic)

1/2 cup oil (olive oil and coconut oil work great)

Optional: essential oils of your preference

 

Sugar Scrub Instructions

Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight jar.

Use 1 tablespoon as needed in the shower.

Scrub skin with the mixture and rinse will.

It will leave your skin feeling like silk.

 

Sound simple? It is!
