DIY:  Brown Sugar + Citrus  Body Scrub

Picture

Fresh, smooth, and glowing skin is a must in the summer months, but I’m always frustrated with the cost and ingredients in store bought body scrubs.  I prefer my bath products to be all natural if possible, but many of the “organic” brands are super pricey and still have tons of preservatives.   After doing a bit of research, I came up with my own scrub recipe that has become staple in my shower. 

The best part? It’s so inexpensive and a breeze to whip up with just one trip to the grocery store.  When I’m making a batch, I double or triple it and make a few jars for my girlfriends.  I scent this with a therapeutic essential oil blend called “Citrus Bliss”.  It is a mix of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, Clementine, and Vanilla oils.  The scent is proven to be uplifting and energizing, and promotes feelings of self esteem.  Yes, please!  Packed in to smaller jars, these would be excellent favors for a bridal or baby shower, too! Below is my recipe for this moisturizing, invigorating, and comforting Brown Sugar And Citrus Body Scrub:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 8 drops high quality essential oil blend, such as doTerra Citrus Bliss
  • Mason Jar, or other container with airtight lid


Recipe:
  In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar and coconut oil and mix well with a spoon until blended.  Then add the drops of essential oil, continuously stirring to combine.  Fill mason jar, secure lid, and keep stored for up to 1 month.  Enjoy!

  2. Re: Coconut oil: I could and do, eat/ cook w/ it, apply it to my skin, apply it to my hair and scalp (lightly) before a swim in residential pool. Scrubs hmm, w/ dry facial skin, have to be very careful but just wanted to say how USEFUL coconut oil is for SO many things. As well as cleaning w/ baking soda and distilled white vinegar for non toxic house hold cleaning for stove top, counters in kitchen, bathroom. Not recommended for hardwood ! Love xo
