Happy early Valentine’s day everyone! I recently made this sugar scrub and I love it. It’s very inexpensive and can make a great gift.
Sugar (any kind – I used granulated sugar.)
Oil (any kind – I used coconut oil)
Extract or essential oil (I used vanilla extract)
Coloring if desired (I used one drop of pink food coloring)
Put some sugar into a small bowl (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup). Slowly add oil and mix. If your oil is a solid, melt it in the microwave or stove before adding it into the sugar. Keep adding oil until the mixture is a liquid but still has granules. If your sugar dissolves, add more. The granules are what make it a scrub.
Once you have the right consistency, add your desired scents and coloring.
Next time I make this I’m going to use an oil that is always a liquid because my scrub hardens after each use and I need to melt it a bit before using it each time. If I had an oil that did not turn to solid when cool, I wouldn’t need to melt the oil each time.
Love making my own scrub and I just happen to have everything on hand to make this today.
This would be perfect to make with my ten year old thanks!
That looks so good – I am going to make this and give it a go – scrubs can be so expensive and often I don’t like them so a waste. x
