Sugar scrubs can be expensive to buy in the stores and I was partial to one I had found back home in California but could not find online or here in Texas. So I started researching how to make my own and could not believe how simple it is! One of the main reasons I love sugar scrubs is that they are moisturizing and exfoliating for the skin. Especially in the humid heat here in Texas I need something like this to help my skin. You can use these scrubs on your face, feet and and your body. I decided to add a twist to the classic recipe and make it a mojito sugar scrub after one of my favorite summer time drinks. It definitely smells just as good if not better than the real thing!
So here is what you need.
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of oil (I prefer fractionated coconut oil but you can use almond oil or olive oil)
- 1/4 tsp of vitamin e
- essential oils
Step 1: Pour sugar into a bowl
Step 2: Add in fractionated coconut oil and vitamin e oil.
Step 3: Add 15 drops of lime essential oil and 10 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Step 4: Mix together and store in a air tight container.
Step 5: Scrub skin with mixture and wash off with warm water.
Now you have the most delicious smelling sugar scrub and skin! It is so simple that you will never buy one in the store again! I think this fall I will make a pumpkin spice one so stay tuned for that recipe!!
