When it is the middle of April and it feels like winter will never end, I reach for my essential oils. I love finding simple and easy ways to treat myself. I have made a lot of goodies to indulge, but one of the easiest and most simple things to whip up is this quick and easy DIY sugar scrub! It takes a matter of two or three minutes to mix together, and is perfect to throw in the shower or the bathtub on those days where your dry skin needs a little bit of TLC.
This scrub is also the perfect gift idea if you are ever hosting a shower or party as a door prize. You can double or triple the recipe below, and place small amounts into take home containers for your guests! To really spruce things up, add a few drops of food coloring to the oils (before mixing with the sugar) for an extra pretty treat!
What You Need for your DIY Sugar Scrub:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
10-15 drops essential oils
- Melt your coconut oil. As soon as it is melted, add essential oils. I used grapefruit and peppermint, so about 7 or so drops of each.
- Stir your oils into 1/2 cup of sugar. Place in a glass container with an airtight lid.
This scrub is seriously so easy to whip up, and I love to swap out the oils that I use dependingon my mood. Grapefruit and peppermint are perfect for getting up and going in the morning, and lavender is perfect for relaxing before bed!
