Get ready for beautiful soft, glowing skin! This edible DIY Sugar Body Scrub is so easy to make and will leave your skin incredibly soft and supple!

Ingredients

Scale

Base

  • 1 cup sugar of choice (organic pure cane, brown pure cane, turbinado, etc.)
  • 3 tablespoons, give or take, sweet almond oil, jojoba or extra virgin olive oil

optional ingredients:

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract w/o alcohol
  • few drops of vitamin E oil
  • 1/2 small lemon, juice of
  • or a few drops of your favorite essential oils such as spearmint, lavender, grapefruit, etc (see notes)

Instructions

Mix: Place sugar in a small/medium size container and add the oil 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing in between. You want the consistency to be sandy, not soupy. If the mix is too soupy, the sugars will dissolve in a day or two and not slough the skin as well, but you will still get added moisture from the oil.

To Use: At the end of showering, pat the skin dry and gently rub the sugar scrub in a circular motion over your body, rinse well. I find it works best after soaking in the tub for at least 20 minutes. Soaking first will help soften the skin, allowing the scrub work to at its best, leaving your skin soft and supple!

It can be used 2 – 4 times a week (depending on the sugar type).

Store: Sugar scrub should be sealed when not in use and stored on a shower caddy or kept in a cabinet. It is best used within 1 month.

Notes

Do not consume if adding essential oils or research before you do to make sure they are ingestible, especially if you are pregnant.
