I made my own body scrub once and LOVED it! I was amazed at how simple and easy it was so I’ve kept it up for a few years now.
I have tried store bought body scrubs and let me tell you, they are nothing compared to the recipe I am about to share with you.
You can add your own scent, you can change and adjust it a little if you want but oh my goodness, its amazing!
I use it after shaving my legs to get that silky feel. It doesn’t make you feel raw in the least. It makes you feel rejuvenated and soft.
Its great for a gardeners hands. The sugar scrubs off the dirt and dry skin and the oils soften and soothe.
I have developed my own recipe but it all started from myfrugaladventures.com. Her peppermint sugar body scrub inspired me and over the years I have added and adjusted it to my liking.
Peppermint Body Scrub
1 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp. vitamin E oil
5-6 drops organic rosehip oil – cold pressed
10-15 drops peppermint essential oil
Mica – if you want color
Melt the coconut oil down leaving a few solid chunks. Add the remaining ingredients, mix and pour into your container. I leave mine right beside the shower. I love it so much I make a double batch like in finished product below.
Some other variations would be adding half cup sugar and half cup ground coffee. You can use any essential oil that you like, I use it primarily for sent.
Make this for gifts, stocking stuffers or party favors! You can get really creative with the jars or dishes you display it in.
Have fun ladies!
