It's winter and I live in Minnesota which means my skin is needing a little TLC right now. I pinned this sugar scrub weeks ago and couldn't wait to try it. After checking out a couple more homemade scrub recipes, it was time to gather my ingredients. All you need is three things: sugar, baby oil, and essential oils. I highly recommend using tupperware or some sort of plastic container if you are going to store the scrubs in the shower.
Maureen and I decided this would be the perfect post-holiday craft to tackle at the cabin after Christmas. We made 5 batches so Mo and I could try both of our flavors of choice (Peppermint and Coconut) and my mom could have a batch.
DIY Sugar Scrub
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of baby oil
a few drops of essential oils (we used coconut and peppermint but there are so many options for you to choose from!)
[Note: The peppermint oil was much stronger than the coconut oil so we used more drops of the coconut. There's no science here, just add drops until it smells good to you! Our baby oil had a slight smell so we tried to cover that.]
Oh baby, these things are amazing! The peppermint wakes you up and the coconut takes you away to somewhere warm. And my skin feels so smooth. I think the best part is when you wash away the sugar, the baby oil is left add moisture to your skin. LOVE the exfoliation. Yes, I know I'm weird.
DIY Sugar Scrubs are super easy to make and will save your skin this winter!
