How to Make Your Own Sugar Scrub
I created this sugar scrub recipe last year and have loved using it! The recipe calls for vanilla infused jojoba oil.
You can either make the vanilla jojoba yourself or purchase it.
To make your own, simply buy whole vanilla bean pods (Amazon.com has organic ones: Vanilla Beans (Whole) Organic – 4 Pods), add 3 or 4 to a large glass jar (16-32 oz is good), fill the jar with jojoba and let it sit for about a week. Remove the vanilla bean pods, and you’re left with the most luscious vanilla infused jojoba for your sugar scrub and other essential oil body-care products!
Coconut, Lime, Lavender & Vanilla Sugar Scrub
A fabulous, soft scrub for your skin
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup vanilla infused jojoba
30 drops distilled lime (Citrus aurantifolia)
30 drops lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Combine all ingredients in a 12 oz container
Be sure to use **distilled** Lime as the cold pressed lime is phototoxic.
Note: I like to use a PET plastic container (12 oz or larger) and leave the scrub in the shower. Use a handful on your arms, legs and back. I don’t use it on my face. It can make the shower floor slippery. If it does, I wipe the floor with a paper towel after my shower.
