DIY BODY SCRUB

Hi lovelies, today I wanted to share with you my first DIY Sugar Body Scrub recipe. I absolutely love scrubs!  I do have some favorite body scrubs that I like to purchase once in a while, but I do love to make my own. With just a few ingredients in my kitchen, takes only a few minutes and you have a more natural and for sure a lot cheaper scrub.

Ingredients:
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Olive Oil 
2 tablespoons of honey
1 of your favorite essential oils (for this scrub I used lavender)

In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients, pour the brown sugar, add your favorite olive oil and your favorite essential oil (this step is optional) . Stir until fully combined.
You can store your scrub into a clean glass jar, I got mine at Ikea. Do not refrigerate!  Just add a nice ribbon and label it and you have a beautiful handmade little treat.
 
 
Hope you enjoyed this DIY beauty recipe. I will share lots more if you love these kind of posts.

Claudia P.

    1. Hi Olga, you got to try this scrub takes 5 minutes to make and it's so good for your skin. I do this amazing scrub in the shower 1-2 a week depends on how dry my skin is.:)
      As you can see only 3 essential ingredients are a must for this scrub.:)
      Hope you have a great weekend
