Do you have a recipe for an awesome sugar scrub?
You could also use olive oil or any kind of oil you like to use.
6-12 drops lavender eo
2 tbl. organic lemon juice, or enough to obtain desired consistency - ADD SLOWLY!
this recipe may sound counter-intuitive with the addition of lemon juice, but it produces lovely results on dry, flaky skin. the acidity of the lemon juice assissts the sugar in sloughing off dead skin cells, while at the same time seems to balance out the ph of skin. my husband loves it too. enjoy!
I just finished making a bazillion jars of sugar scrub and I've got nothing but rave reviews :-)
Fill the jar with raw sugar, top with melted extra virgin coconut oil, 3 drops Lavender EO (or to preference), stir and enjoy!
I've been wondering about making a body scrub with coconut oil and brown sugar. This might be a dumb question, but I'm kind of a newbie at this...do you use it while you're in the shower or before you get in?
