Per my (two-week) tradition, I have another recipe for you all this lovely Friday! Not per (two-week) tradition, this one isn’t edible.
Have any of you ever used a sugar scrub? If not, here’s what I have to say: 1.) I’m so sorry. 2.) You should. 3.) You no longer have any excuse not to use one, because here is a very simple and wonderfully scented sugar scrub recipe! (This would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift, as well…)
The sugar here works as an exfoliant, scrubbing dead skin cells away. I love to use this scrub on my hands and face… it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth! The lavender adds a beautiful scent, and works to combat acne.
How to use the scrub
Dampen the (clean!) skin you would like to exfoliate.
Take a small amount of the sugar scrub and rub it around on your skin for awhile.
Rinse off the sugar scrub, close your eyes, and smile in delight. 🙂
Follow up with lotion or moisturizer.
3 Ingredient Lavender Sugar Scrub
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) granulated sugar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
Smash it all together! When you aren’t using the scrub, store it in a sealed container in a cool, dark place.
– If you aren’t a fan of lavender, you can replace it with another essential oil or leave the scrub unscented.
