Homemade Sugar Scrub For Face and Body
Keep this Homemade Body Scrub Recipe on hand for those last minutes holiday gifts. Or make a batch to pamper yourself with a spa night at home!
The sugar and oils are great for hydrating and exfoliating the skin. While the lavender adds a calming scent and makes this homemade scrub extra pretty.
I love homemade scrubs, lotions and other beauty products.
I used salt in my last Scrub Recipe, so I decided to make a sugar scrub this time. I have tons of lavender left over from my Lavender Field Adventure earlier this year. The lavender adds a lovely floral fragrance and makes this scrub super luxurious.
Making scrubs at home couldn’t be more simple. Mix the oil and sugar together, add any fragrances and you’re done! Usually you mix the sugar:oil at a 2:1 ratio. I used slightly less oil in this recipe but feel free to add an extra tablespoon of oil if you prefer.
I used some culinary lavender that I bought at the Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms. If you’re not lucky enough to have lavender growing in your backyard, you can Order It Online or check your natural/health grocery store. Just make sure you are using lavender that hasn’t been doused in chemicals or pesticides.
- 1/2 Cup White Sugar
- 1 Tb Unrefined Coconut Oil, liquid state
- 2 Tb Grape Seed Oil
- 1 tsp Dried Lavender
- 5-10 Drops Lavender Essential Oil, optional
- Mix the sugar and oils together with a fork or spoon.
- Add the lavender flowers and gently mix.
- Transfer mixture to Glass Jar.
- Sprinkle a few more lavender flowers on top and drizzle with a small amount of grapeseed oil.
I used grapeseed oil because it does not have an odor. Other liquid oils can be used, just keep in mind the aroma of the oil you decide to use.
Fill a jar with your homemade sugar scrub, add ribbon and a tag. That’s it, you have an inexpensive homemade gift that your family and friends are sure to love.
Just be very careful if using this scrub while in the shower. Nobody want to be slip-sliding around in the tub! Yes, I’m a worrier.
