It’s sugar scrub season, well Winter means dry skin… I’m sure that’s not just me, right?
I often turn to home made scrubs to help with this chalk board legs situation and it works, here is how to make your own.
This is a simple scrub that you can play with and change scents to your specifications, it’s great on the skin and this specific one, has anti-inflammatory properties (cinnamon) and smells like pancakes, yum yum
This also makes a great gift
What you need:
Oil of your choice, I used coconut mixed with a little olive oil (Coconut oil is solid when cold so either heat a little or whip, the olive helps it not turn into a sugar block)
As a general rule I go with one part oil to two parts sugar
If you are using an essential oil a drop is usually enough but for cinnamon I opted for a teaspoon (your nose will let you know if you are getting a little too generous)
Just mix your ingredients in a bowl
pack in an airtight container
and add a label to be cute
*You can use olive oil, vitaminE oil, macadamia nut oil, the choices are endless really
The same with the sugar, it doesn’t have to be brown sugar, in fact salt works just as well
