SUGAR & SALT BODY SCRUBS

Aren’t they cute? I love these scrubs in the shower. They are all-natural, just about totally eliminate the need for moisturizer, and smell dreamy!

SUGAR SCRUBS

You can use any variation of essential oils that pleases you.  My favorite combination contains lemon, grapefruit, lemongrass, orange, bergamot, and peppermint.  Be careful when you use citrus oils, though, the scent alters over time!

I make the following sugar scrubs:

— Starlight Mint
— Sweet Sugar (described above)
— Vanilla Hazelnut (the only one with a fragrance oil, but it’s so
yummy!)

Recipe (makes about a pint of scrub)

2 cups turbinado sugar
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
1/4 cup apricot kernel oil
essential oils
dollop of honey

Mix base and essential oils.  Stir into the sugar.  Throw in dollop of honey, mix well.

SALT SCRUBS
