Make your own Body Scrub

body scrub 006

I know what you’re thinking. A recipe for body scrub… have you gone mad? Nope. I haven’t. I thought this blog needed something else, since I’m interested in other things like gardening, photography, crafting, and of course cooking. Why not add those sections to my blog too?

Last year I crafted my own tombstones for Halloween and they turned out pretty neat. This year I’ve found a DIY grim reaper and ghost milk carton lights. You should see all the milk, I’ve been drinking. :)

Anyways…. all these ingredients you can either get online at Swanson Health Products like the Vitamin E oil, Coconut Oil, or Peppermint Oil. Sea Salt and Sugar you can find in the baking aisle at your grocery store. This body scrub makes your skin feel nice and soft afterwards. My friend who’s also starting a craft-ish type blog was kind enough to order the stuff for me.

Body Scrub recipe from deliciously organized.

1 cup organic cane sugar
1/3 cup celtic sea salt
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
2-3 tablespoons almond oil
1 tablespoon Vitamin E
Lavender Essential Oil
Scrubs are a wonderful way to gently exfoliate and leave you feeling fresh and renewed.  Making your own is a breeze, and most the time you can use what you already have at home.  I start with a recycled jar, and then add a little bit of the salt, sugar, coconut oil {one at a time so I can control the consistency} and then add the rest of the ingredients.
You can also make a nice sugar scrub with 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil and essential oil.  For a brown sugar scrub, try 2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup honey and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
