Home made body scrubs

4539743660_2d85b3e6c0Hello Friends
Get your body ready to shine this summer with these easy DIY body scrubs that you can make with a few simple ingredients straight from your kitchen. So pick one, mix it up, and scrub your whole body to gorgeousness!
Warm Vanilla Brown Sugar and Coconut Body Scrub
11/4 cups of brown or raw sugar
6-8 tbsp organic unrefined coconut oil
15-20 drops vanilla fragrance

Super Sweet Sugar Scrub
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup mashed avocado (optional)
1 cup of olive oil or coconut oil

“Wake you up!” Coffee Body Scrub
2 cups of ground coffee
1/2 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil

Chocolate Body Scrub
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil or coconut oil
1/4 cup Cocoa

Ocean Beauty Sea Salt Scrub
1/2 cup sea salt
1/2 cup of olive oil or coconut oil
5 drops of an essential oil in your favorite scent. I would choose one that reminds you of the beach… maybe a clean, breezy scent.
Note:
  • For all of these scrub recipes, the instructions are the same… Mix everything together well getting rid of any lumps, adding in the oil last. Store in a air tight container and use within six months.
  • When I use a body scrub, I apply it in the shower and rub the mixture in small circles, focusing on dryer areas such as my elbows, knees and feet. If you need help selecting your scrub, here is a quick cheat sheet:
  • The Warm Vanilla, Coconut Oil Scrub and the Super Sweet Sugar Scrub is best for dry, sensitive skin. The brown sugar is more gentle than the salt or coffee scrub, and the avocado will add extra creaminess to the scrub and boost the hydration it gives your skin. The Coffee and Ocean Beauty Scrubs are the most exfoliating and good if you have non sensitive skin that you really want to get glowing. These scrubs will give you a level of exfoliation that the Super Sweet Sugar Scrub will not.
  • After you have finished exfoliating your body you should apply a nice thick body butter to keep your skin hydrated since scrubs can leave your skin a little thirsty. You can use a store bought body butter, or you can make your own!

    • Thank you. I haven’t posted as much in the last year, as I have been helping my daughter with her first baby. I’m just starting to get back into the swing of things again:)
