DIY Lux­ury Sugar Scrub

Luxe, sans yuk.

Hav­ing just bought new beauty prod­ucts, ex­cited to play with them, I read the in­gre­di­ents. That is one long list for some­thing with two ac­tive in­gre­di­ents.

It's been said if you can't pro­nounce an in­gre­di­ent, you prob­a­bly shouldn't be eat­ing or us­ing it!

This is par­tially why I like to blend my own prod­ucts from nat­u­ral and or­ganic in­gre­di­ents. And it's less ex­pen­sive!

One of my favourite blends is a sugar scrub, switch­ing up the es­sen­tial oil, de­pend­ing on what mood I am aim­ing for. If I want a bit of a pick me up, I'll choose or­ange oil, as or­ange is an in­stant mood lifter. It works with one sniff, even on the dark­est of days. Eu­ca­lyp­tus and pep­per­mint oil work beau­ti­fully for a spa like, in­vig­o­rat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and lemon is so sweet smelling, it's like eat­ing cake!

Noth­ing leaves my skin as soft or smooth as this and I have tried my fair share of scrubs and ex­fo­liants! I wouldn't rec­om­mend us­ing it on your face as the sugar can be quite abra­sive, and you need prod­ucts that are gen­tle for your del­i­cate face.

Method

Sim­ply mix raw sugar, with equal parts olive oil so it cov­ers the sugar. Add in the es­sen­tial oils of your choice, and keep in an air-tight con­tainer.

You only need a few drops of es­sen­tial oil, you'll know by the smell, and you can change it up to your per­sonal pref­er­ence.
