Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite things to make at home! They’re simple, quick, and you can save quite a bit of money if you make your own vs. buying them year-round. This week I created a recipe for a citrus sugar scrub that has a gentle blend of essential oils including tangerine, frankincense, and bergamot. Even my mom loves it! And she’s a hard one to please (typically opts for no scent whatsoever). Read on to learn how to make this fun recipe and treat your skin this summer.
Why Sugar Scrubs / How Often?
The blend of sugar crystals and jojoba oil exfoliates and softens your skin at the same time. This is not for your face! It is for use on body only and works great to smooth out areas of your skin that might typically get dry and rough (backs of arms, thighs, feet etc). Use once or twice per week (if you use a body scrub daily it can have the adverse effect of making your skin leathery).
What You’ll Need:
Jojoba oil (organic if possible)
Organic cane sugar
Essential oils (I recommend Eden Botanicals)
Measuring cups / spoons
8oz container with lid (I used this one)
Washi tape for decoration (optional)
Start with a clean, dry container for your mixture. Measure out 3/4 cup of the organic cane sugar into an 8oz jar (small canning jars can also work). I always make notes as I go ; )
