How to Make Homemade Sugar Scrub

How to Make Homemade Sugar Scrub

Many of us are busy parents, grandparents, working, stressed... so sometimes we all deserve a little spa treatment.  With prices climbing and time being so limited, we sometimes don't get that pampering opportunity.  Although there are many commercial sugar scrubs in the market that are absolutely divine, sometimes you may run out of your favorite scrub or may need to cut personal expenses.  There are many homemade spa recipes that you may use to get that little personal luxury, so why not make your own!

I have tried a few recipes and found this to be one of the easiest and most functional for my needs.  I prefer raw brown sugar over white sugar,  because I have sensitive skin and the raw brown sugar has a thicker texture compared to the refined white sugar.  This is a basic recipe, but you may try different variations, adding your own personal fragrance, personal oils etc...Just play with it until you get the perfect scrub that is right for you.


  
The ingredients that you will need are as follows:

-1 jar with lid 
-1 cup Raw Brown Sugar or white
-1 cup  Jajoba oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil  (good for skin)
-1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
-1 tbsp Aloe Vera  (Optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon of your choice of Essential Oil (Optional), I use Young Living and Do Terra oils.



To avoid making a mess, I mix the scrub directly in the jar.
To begin, take the sugar and carefully pour it into the jar;
 next, add the oil and pour slowly until sugar absorbs it.
Add vitamin E, aloe vera, and the rest of the ingredients.
  Take a spoon or small spatula and mix it well.
  Depending on how thick or watery you like your scrub,
adjust the amount of sugar and oil until you get the consistency you want.
I like mine a bit watery.

 Now you are all done.

Use the scrub in the shower or tub.
Massage the scrub in a gentle circular motion on rough patches,
this removes dead skin, the scrub is also great for ingrown hair.
 Rinse with warm water.
  I love using this scrub on my feet and hands too.

  33. Most of the ingredients you will be able to find in your local supermarket, raw brown sugar, course brown sugar...baby oil, aloe vera and vitamin E would be located where they sell vitamins and other health products in your supermarket. For the other oils you can go to a beauty store like "Sally's", you can find Jojoba oil there as well as Almond oil and Peppermint oil. You can also visit the Bath & Body Shop, they're similar to Bed Bath & Body Works, but sell more fragrance oils. Hope this was helpful.
