I recently purchased some yummy ‘wild orange’ essential oils and thought it would make a great scent for some homemade sugar scrub
Sugar body scrubs are inexpensive when you make them yourself and do wonders for exfoliating dry winter skin.
They mix up in minutes. And make a great gift as well.
The wild orange essential oil I used was perfectly sweet and really lingers after using the scrub, YUM!
Spiced Wild Orange Sugar Body Scrub
Combine equal parts Sugar (Brown or Raw) and Olive Oil, Grapeseed or Almond Oil. I made up 2 cups worth for this batch.
Add in about a tsp. of Cinnamon for spice.
Add in 20 drops of Orange Oil for each 2 cups of scrub, more for stronger scent.
Stir together ingredients and store in a sealed container, preferably glass.
Stir as needed. Apply a small amount to skin with wet hands and scrub gently to remove dead skin.
Rinse and pat dry. May be used 2 – 3 times per week safely.
Don’t have any brown sugar?
Here’s a wonderful way to make some homemade Brown Sugar
and always have fresh on hand at home:
If you’d like to try out the ‘wild orange’ scent for yourself, contact Somer at Vedged Out for info. on how to order. The essential oils are just one of many great skin care products from Doterra Products.
Perfect little gifts don’t have to cost a lot or take a lot of time to make. This Sugar Scrub comes in at about $2 per 16oz. jar. It’s a great way to show someone that you care about their health and well being without being too personal. A co-worker or teacher would certainly enjoy the pampering of a wonderfully scented bath scrub. And it’s one of those products most of us resist buying for ourselves with so many other expenses.
Great gift and a healthy way to care for your skin!
