Sugar may not be good for you when you eat it, but it’s definitely great for your skin. Sugar scrub is a fantastic exfoliation method, and personally, living here in Utah with a very dry climate, it’s a MUST for my skin needs. It needs to both moisturize and scrub away dead skin cells-and to be completely honest, it has to smell amazing at the same time or I want no part of it.
When Kristina and I got together to make our handmade bath salts last Christmas as gifts, it occurred to us that some of our friends didn’t have bathtubs-so giving them bath salts would be kind of a crappy gift. That’s when the idea of putting together a sugar scrub came to life and it was almost as easy and inexpensive as the bath salts.
What You’ll Need to Make Sugar Scrub
Sugar (white or brown)
Base Oil (I prefer coconut, but Olive or Almond are also great)
Essential Oil (make sure it’s not just a scented oil-it needs to be essential so it’s safe for skin and not chemical)
How to Make This Sugar Scrub
Put it all together and mix it up. It smells amazing and it’s totally natural and safe-it’s even edible, though I don’t recommend eating it-it’s not necessarily good for you even if it does taste kind of awesome. Throw it in a jar and put it in your bathroom. It has a shelf life of about 2 months (or more if you keep it in a cool dark cupboard so the oils don’t sour) but you’ll probably use it all up before that time. It’s so inexpensive and easy you can use it like crazy and not worry about breaking the bank.
