Who doesn't love a good, yummy smelling, sugar scrub? I've been playing around lately and decided to share a few recipes with you.
Start out with 1 cup of sugar, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and 1 tablespoon coconut oil. you can use this for the base of any scrub, and add virtually whatever you like to it. essential oils, herbs, spices, flowers, you name it, it probably can be put in it.
for the lemon-mint scrub add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, lemon peel (optional), and a few mint leaves. stir well and pour into jar.
for pumpkin pie scrub, use 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon ginger. increase quantities for a stronger scent. stir well and pour into jar.
for lavender vanilla, use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon dried lavender, and fresh vanilla bean, if you like. stir well and pour into jar.
and there you have it! I love these so much. The lavender vanilla and pumpkin spice ones are definitely my favorite...the lemon-mint will be better for summer, for sure. But the pumpkin spice for fall? omg. In love.
Happy fall, lovelies!
