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.
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.
