I love to make sugar scrubs. They smell great and they are great, natural way to exfoliate. I normally make sugar scrubs for my body because my skin has a tendency to get flaky and dry. But I recently made a sugar scrub for my face. I have tried a lot of different facial exfoliation scrubs that I would buy from the store. But none of them worked the way I wanted. I would have to scrub my face with a washcloth just to get all of the dry flakes off. However, as soon as I tried a facial sugar scrub, I never had to use a washcloth again!
So here is the recipe that I use to make my facial sugar scrub:
1/4 cup of extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup of white sugar (or any sugar you have on hand. You can even use salt if you don’t have any sugar)
10 drops of Melaleuca essential oil (Tea Tree oil)
10 drops of Lavender essential oil
5 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
Melt the coconut oil. Mix the oils together first, then add the sugar. You don’t want the consistency to be soupy, so add the sugar until it isn’t runny anymore. I do it by sight, so 1/2 a cup of sugar is just an estimate.
And I use Young Living essential oils because I don’t trust any other brand of oils. I highly recommend that you only use all natural oils like Young Living. Any oils that you can get at Whole Foods or any other store aren’t good for you. They may smell good, and they may say that they are all natural, but if it says that you can’t ingest or consume them, then they aren’t all natural. All of the oils you can get from Young Living are all natural and all of them can be ingested. So that’s why I only trust this brand to use on my face and in my body. If you want to buy these oils, you can get them from me at youngliving.com and my distributor number is 1862627.
I hope you enjoy your new sugar scrub! If you have any questions or you just want to say hi, leave a comment below.
