DIY Exfoliating Sugar Scrub

Oct 2022 | Sustainable living

Looking after yourself and taking a bit of ‘you time’ is the best way to recharge your energy and feel a little bit human again in this incredibly fast-paced world.

We thought we would share one of our favourite DIY natural beauty products. We love making natural products ourselves at home when we find a bit of time.

Making our own eco-friendly beauty products has been a passion for many years. We often give these as gifts to family and friends. Try it and let us know what you think.

Time for the magic!

What you need…

1 old mixing bowl
125ml Kilner style jar (or a tub with a lid)

1 cup of granulated sugar brown/white sugar
1/2 cup of sweet almond oil
3 drops of lemongrass essential oil
1 drop of ginger essential oil
A pinch of turmeric (not essential we just love turmeric and the colour)

Time to make your sugar scrub…

Mix the sugar and oil together slowly. Feel the consistency, if it is a bit too oily for you, don’t use all the oil.

Add the essential oils (you can use other essential oils) the oils we have chosen are invigorating!

Add the turmeric (this will can make your skin a little yellow when you use the scrub but washes off)

Mix it all together and voila!

Pop it into your jar and you have made your very own sugar scrub.

Top tip** when the scrub gets to about half full add a little more sugar and it will last a bit longer.

We hope you enjoy making this gorgeous scrub!
