Homemade Sugar Scrubs

Recently, I was perusing my favorite” bath and body” website and found several sugar scrub products that looked so delicious to try!  They were, however, a little too pricey for me, which lead me to search online for homemade recipes!  Making sugar scrubs at home is so easy and only takes a handful of ingredients!  Don’t spend a fortune at a store, you are really paying for the fancy packaging!  I found a basic recipe and you can add your own essential oils and herbs of your choice.

Basic Sugar Scrub Recipe

1 cup granulated white sugar
½ cup olive oil (you can substitute sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil)

Directions: Mix both ingredients well and store in glass jar with lid

Scents to use: a few drops of essential oil — feel free to use any one of the following: lavender, jasmine, sandalwood, vanilla, etc.

Here is another fun recipe to try, it’s called Peppermint Sugar Scrub. This one definitely looks fun to make and smell!

Peppermint Sugar Scrub

1 cup granulated white sugar
6 peppermint candies (approx 1/4 cup), finely crushed into a powder
1/2 cup olive oil (or any of the oils in the basic recipe)
6 drops peppermint essential oil (optional)

1. Mix together granulated white sugar and crushed peppermint candies until well blended
2. Pour liquid ingredients into sugar mix and blend well
