Sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and soften your skin, and can easily be customized using different types of sugar, salt, carrier oil, and essential oils.
This week I spOILed some ladies at a fun Spa Night Event at a local design center. We made custom sugar scrubs, and here’s my simple DIY recipe:
Essential Sugar Scrub
1 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops doTERRA Essential Oil (see my favorite ideas below)
Jar with lid
Add ingredients to a bowl, stir until the mixture is the consistency of a slushy. You may need to add more sugar or Fractionated Coconut Oil for desired consistency.
Tip: You can use brown sugar or sea salt in place of white sugar. You can also use almond oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil in place of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
