Ingredients:

1/2 cup of Sugar
1-2 tablespoons of Olive Oil, Sesame Oil, or Jojoba Oil (Your choice!)
1-2 drops of Essential Oil

Try Lavender, Rosemary, Peppermint, Tea-Tree, or Grapefruit Essential Oil!

 (Again, this is your choice! If you are not familiar with essential oils and which ones can be mixed together, pick and use just one! When combining essential oils, make sure that they are compatible with each other.)

Lavender is calming! Rosemary, Peppermint, & Tea Tree is invigorating! & Grapefruit is refreshing!

Preparation:

Combine 1/2 cup of sugar with 1-2 tablespoons of the oil of your choice and mix well. Add 1-2 drops of your choice of essential oil(s) and mix well.

Application:

Scoop out a few spoonfuls of your all natural exfoliating scrub, use on your face, hands, feet, legs, body! Please make sure that the area you use the scrub on has already been cleansed prior to using your scrub. Once you have applied your scrub, rub the area of application gently for 1-2 minutes, then rinse.

 Pat dry and follow with an all natural moisturizer such as coconut oil or shea butter! Both are great for your skin!

Storage:

Jar with Lid – (Can be found at your local grocery or craft store)

An old container with Lid – (Recycle it for your scrub!)

Use a preservative like Vitamin E to preserve your product! Store it in your shower area and use it during your shower! If you choose not to use a preservative, try refrigerating the scrub to maintain its freshness! Whatever you decide, remember since this is an all natural product, the control of its quality is your responsibility! Have a preservative plan in mind!

There are many different variations for this exfoliation treatment. Be creative and try different base carrier oils and essential oils. Find out which ones work best for you and scrub away!

 

Until Next Time “Scrub On”,
