Homemade Sugar Scrub
Updated: Sep 1
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil (you can use other oils like almond, olive, or jojoba oil if you prefer)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence extract (optional for a pleasant scent) OR
6-10 drops of essential oils
In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar and coconut oil. If the coconut oil is solid, gently warm it until it becomes a liquid state but not hot (or the sugar will dissolve and you will not have the scrub aspect).
Stir the mixture thoroughly until the brown sugar and oil are well combined, creating a grainy texture.
If you would like a pleasant fragrance, add the optional vanilla essence extract or the essential oils and mix these in.
Your brown sugar body scrub is now ready! Transfer it to a clean, airtight (if you use essential oils then use glass) container for storage.
How to use:
While in the shower or bath, take a small amount of the brown sugar scrub and apply it to damp skin. Gently massage in circular motions, focusing on areas where you want to exfoliate and soften the skin. Rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry. Enjoy the smooth and soft feeling of your refreshed skin!
Note: Since this scrub contains oil, be cautious in the shower to avoid slipping. Also, make sure to do a patch test on a small area of skin to ensure you do not have any allergies or skin sensitivities to the ingredients.
Also if you want to halve the quantity to make a smaller amount you can.
